President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Guiliani said that major news networks, including Fox News, will not have him on as a guest to talk about election fraud any longer—as voting machine companies have demanded retractions in the midst of allegations from Giuliani and others.
“It’s been the strangest experience of my life,” he told Newsmax. “I’m living in a country with the kind of censorship that I remember as a young child in East Germany and the Soviet Union.”
Giuliani said that he “can’t get on ABC, NBC, CBS,” and “I can’t even get on Fox anymore.”
The former mayor and federal prosecutor said he believes it’s because of the Trump team’s allegations of voter fraud.
The Epoch Times has reached out to Fox News for comment about Giuliani’s claims.
The network barring Giuliani from appearing on its programs due to voting machine companies Dominion Voting Systems’ and Smartmatic’s demands to news outlets that they issue retractions. Giuliani, meanwhile, was named in a lawsuit filed by Dominion security official Eric Coomer.
“Defendants, by their actions, have elevated Dr. Coomer into the national spotlight, invaded his privacy, threatened his security, and fundamentally defamed his reputation across this country,” Coomer’s lawsuit said. It also named Newsmax, OANN, The Gateway Pundit, lawyer Sidney Powell, Trump’s campaign, and others.
Newsmax on Monday aired a two-minute video that attempted to clarify claims that were made on the network about Dominion and Smartmatic.
“Newsmax would like to clarify its news coverage and note that it has not reported as true certain claims made about these companies,” Newsmax’s John Tabacco said.
Giuliani and Trump’s legal team are continuing to file lawsuits and are still trying to persuade state legislatures in key states to overturn the election results.
Earlier this week, Trump’s campaign filed a legal challenge in the Supreme Court to reverse three cases decided by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that “illegally changed” the mail-in ballot laws “immediately before and after the 2020 presidential election.” They said the court violated Article II of the Constitution and the 2000 Bush v. Gore ruling.
The former mayor said the Pennsylvania lawsuit will be the first of many new ones.
“I remember an old adage that I learned from baseball,” Giuliani said earlier this week in an interview about the suits. “When you’re down by 10 runs, you can’t score 10 runs on one hit. So you got to get one run at a time. So the way I look at it, we have to win one of these legislatures. I think we have three good ones to pick from: Pennsylvania and Georgia and Arizona.”
