Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Tuesday claims he does not have his tail between his legs even after Attorney General Bill Barr stated the obvious in an interview with the Associated Press: there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud that would hand President Trump an election victory.

Barr, a Trump official who has been notorious for indulging Trump’s bogus mail-in voter fraud claims and issued a directive to U.S. attorneys nationwide allowing them to pursue any “substantial allegations” of voting irregularities, told the AP that U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have uncovered no evidence that would change the outcome of the election.

“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr told the AP.

Giuliani appeared unfazed by Barr’s failed attempt at boosting the Trumpworld’s flailing legal battles by quipping in a statement that there supposedly “hasn’t been any semblance of a Department of Justice investigation.”

Giuliani, without evidence, spewed falsehoods of Trump’s legal team having “gathered ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states” with “many witnesses” swearing under oath of witnessing crimes related to voter fraud.

“As far as we know, not a single one has been interviewed by the DOJ,” Giuliani said. “The Justice Department also hasn’t audited any voting machines or used their subpoena powers to determine the truth.”

Trump’s ardent foot soldier maintained that the President’s legal team will continue waging lawsuits attempting to delegitimize President-elect Joe Biden’s legitimate election victory, before giving a backhanded compliment to Barr.

“Again, with the greatest respect to the Attorney General, his opinion appears to be without any knowledge or investigation of the substantial irregularities and evidence of systemic fraud,” Giuliani said.
