Donald Trump’s sidekick and former personal attorney Rudy Giuliani coordinated the filing of fake voter certificates by fake Republican voter rolls in five states for the 2020 presidential race, The Washington Post and CNN reported Thursday.

Officials in some states passed information about the operation to federal prosecutors.

Republican voters declared themselves “duly elected and qualified” and sent signed certificates to Washington claiming to affirm that Trump was the winner in five states he had effectively lost – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Wisconsin, noted the Post. All states had legitimate Democratic voters for Joe Biden, mirroring resident votes.

Some Republican voters were so uncomfortable with the Giuliani plan that they refused to participate, the Post found.

Forged documents were also filed from Pennsylvania and New Mexico, but the GOP forgeries were branded as “voters in waiting” in case legal challenges to Biden’s victory were successful. But certificates from the other five states incorrectly claimed that pro-Trump voters were the legitimate voters.

Former Trump campaign officials and GOP leaders told the Post that Giuliani oversaw the operation and that campaign officials were also involved. Sources told the newspaper and CNN that Giuliani was helped by a correspondent from the right-wing One America News Network.

Giuliani bragged publicly at the time that the fake slates were necessary because of his baseless voter fraud allegations and those of other Trump supporters.

Trump allies began discussing floating lists of alternate voters shortly after Trump lost the presidential election, the Post reported. A text to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows spoke about the plan, though it was described as “highly controversial,” according to communications obtained by the House select committee investigating the plan. the January 6, 2021 riot at the US Capitol. led by Trump supporters.

“Love it,” Meadows replied, later noting, “We have a team on it.”

The fake rolls were later intended to provide then-Vice President Mike Pence with a stable of voters willing to replace those who legitimately represented the will of the American people.

“This is not political theatre. This is not protected speech,” Nessel said. “This is an attack on the very fabric of our system of government.”
