I never had a complaint. I have never had a problem. I believe the real problem here is that someone has to fix this double standard justice system, which is no longer America … They are prejudiced Democrats who credit newspapers instead of witnesses. He’s not a judge. ”The court said Giuliani had made numerous false statements, including that hundreds of thousands of mail ballots or votes, including those of deceased people, had been mis-counted. election – although his formal written complaint on Trump’s behalf makes no mention of it.
