Rudy Giuliani said he did not have “time” to verify allegations of election fraud

Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, who tirelessly and without reason opposed presidential election fraud, admitted in a videotape that he did not actually confirm certain claims he made about election fraud and Dominion voting systems because he “Didn’t have time.”

“In a fast-paced case, it’s not my job to go out and investigate all the evidence that has been presented to me,” he said in taped testimony obtained by CNN, which reported it Friday. “Otherwise, you will never write a story. You will never come to a conclusion. “

The deposition was carried out as part of a $ 1.3 billion defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion against Giuliani after the 2020 elections. The lawsuit by the e-voting systems company accuses the former mayor of New York of spreading a “big lie” of falsified voting results and deceiving “millions of people into believing that Dominion stole their votes and called elections.”

In his August affidavit, Giuliani recalled: “We had a report that the heads of Dominion and Smartmatic … went to Venezuela for an introductory meeting with [Venezuelan President Nicolás] Maduro so that they can demonstrate to Maduro what voting order they did for [former President Hugo] Chavez “.

With regard to verifying the validity of this message, Giuliani said: “Sometimes I myself go and look on the Internet – when something pops up. This time I didn’t have time for that. “
