WATCH: Donald Trump Allies Testify That Inebriated Rudy Giuliani Pushed For Claim Of Win Before Ballots Were Counted

In the second public hearing held by the January 6th Committee, evidence was brought to show that Donald Trump knew, when he first claimed that he had won the election, that the totals were not in yet, and that his chances of winning were poor. Further evidence was brought to demonstrate that the then-president continued to make this claim, even after knowing that he had lost.

Using clips of testimony from former Trump Campaign Manager Bill Stepien; Donald Trump’s advisor Jason Miller; Ivanka Trump; and former NYC Mayor and former Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, the Committee laid out a series of claims and the evidence behind them.

These individuals’ testimony suggests that Donald Trump had been widely and repeatedly advised that it is normal for Republican votes to be counted early, because Democrats are more likely to vote absentee, and absentee votes are often counted last. He knew and had been advised that he could expect to take an early lead, then watch it be reduced or even eliminated. Then, a reportedly drunk Rudy Giuliani showed up.

According to testimony from some of the people closest to Trump, who were in the White House on election night and witnessed the activities in question, a drunk Giuliani showed up and began to suggest, against all advice from others in the campaign, that Trump should simply declare victory.

Stepien also testifies that Trump rejected advice to give a noncommittal speech in which he expressed pride in the campaign and a hope that he would still come out on top. Instead, Trump chose to make a public statement calling the election a fraud, and saying, “Frankly, we did win this election.”
