Vid released by Rudy Giuliani to ‘prove voter fraud’ shows ‘NOTHING unusual,’ Georgia Secretary of State says

VIDEO that Rudy Giuliani has claimed “proves voter fraud” in Georgia had already been investigated and doesn’t show anything unusual, according to state election officials.

Giuliani this week shared security footage from State Farm Arena in Atlanta, located in Fulton County – where the Trump campaign has filed a lawsuit alleging widespread fraud. 

He tweeted on Wednesday: "The video tape doesn’t lie. Fulton County Democrats stole the election. It’s now beyond doubt. Go to the tape!”

“Are we going to let Democrats steal the election in front of our faces,” Giuliani added in another tweet on Thursday. 

“If we cant (sic) stand up to the pressure of saving our country from rampant voter fraud because we are afraid of the elite reaction, we better find more courageous people for our party.”

The Trump campaign claims the video shows suitcases filled with ballots being pulled from underneath a table after supervisors told election workers to leave the room and poll watchers left the building.

President Donald Trump’s legal team says that the footage shows four people stayed “to keep counting votes.”

But according to WSB-TV, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger's office has already investigated the claims surrounding State Farm Arena and found nothing.

The office said they had their own poll watchers at the scene who didn’t see anything out of the ordinary. 

Gabriel Sterling, a top official in the secretary of state’s office, said: "If you look at the video tape, the work you see is the work you would expect, which is you take the sealed suitcase looking things in, you place the ballots on the scanner in manageable batches and you scan them.”

Sterling said what Trump’s team is doing is “intentionally misleading the public about what happened at State Farm Arena on election night. They had the whole video too and ignored the truth.”

He said the entire 90-second video of election workers that supposedly showed fraud was “normal ballot processing.”

On Thursday, Giuliani was in Atlanta for a hearing on his voter fraud claims – and insisted the video is enough to toss Georgia’s presidential election results entirely. 

He said: “And the fact that you have the power to do this. State law doesn’t in any way prevent you, the legislature, from immediately taking this over and deciding this.”

Georgia State Senator Elena Parent said on Thursday that “according to the law of the state of Georgia, we do not have the power to submit alternate electors.”

“The provision in the old law is quite clear.”

But despite all of this, Giuliani continued to insist this video proves widespread fraud and called the footage a “‘bank heist’ tape.”

"How can it be disputed. It’s like disputing a bank robbery when you have 4 cameras showing the robbery," he added.

Georgia certified its election results in November, with Joe Biden as the winner over Trump, and recertified those results on Friday.

Since then, Trump and his campaign have been targeting their attacks at Georgia’s top election officials, and even taking aim at Republican Governor Brian Kemp.

“The governor’s done nothing,” Trump said on Sunday. “He’s done absolutely nothing. I’m ashamed that I endorsed him. But I look at what’s going on. It’s so terrible.”

Later on Friday, the Trump campaign said it filed a lawsuit for Georgia to throw out the election results entirely and “order a new election to be conducted in the presidential race."
