Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is calling on President Donald Trump to declassify everything, saying that he owes it to his supporters to do so.
While talking to former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on a podcast on Friday, Giuliani called on Trump to go on a reclassification spree because there’s “no longer any reason to try to create some kind of harmony.”
“At many times, I thought he was ready to do it, and many times it was blocked by, I have to assume, the force that we now call the ‘deep state,’” Giuliani said. “I think he owes it, not just to MAGA, he owes it to the American people to put it out.”
Giuliani went on to double down on his claim that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Trump.
“They are beginning a pattern of crooked elections on a major scale,” he said. “The election of 2020 was a rigged election. There is overwhelming evidence of it. We possess it.”
Giuliani also alleged that the Georgia runoff elections, which were both won by Democrats this past Tuesday, were stolen by “algorithms.”
Trump effectively conceded on Thursday, saying “a new administration will be inaugurated on January 20th.”
“My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power. This moment calls for healing and reconciliation,” Trump said in a video posted to Twitter, according to The Daily Caller.
Democratic Representatives Ted Lieu and Mondaire Jones penned a letter to the New York State Bar Association urging them to investigate and disqualify Giuliani for inflammatory speech after he called for a “trial by combat” before the Capitol riots on Wednesday.
“We request that your office open an immediate investigation into the President’s attorney for his statements calling for a ‘trial by combat’ preceding a violent insurrection at the Capitol in which five people died, including a U.S. Capitol Police Officer, and Members of Congress and the Vice President were credibly threatened with violence,” the letter said.
“We believe the actions of Mr. Giuliani disqualify him from being a member in good standing with the New York State Bar,” the Democrats continued.
