Giuliani tried to reach Senator However, Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) Left the message on the voicemail of another senator who was not identified.
In his message to Tuberville, Giuliani claimed that there were lawmakers on Capitol Hill “We are trying to speed up this hearing and as we need you, our Republican friends, to just slow it down so we can get this legislature to give you more information.”
“And I know they will meet again tonight at 8:00 am, but it … the only strategy we can pursue is to object and pose problems to numerous states so that we can get involved with tomorrow – ideally until the end of tomorrow, “he continued.
The report comes from the conservative news agency The Dispatch, which released the recorded voicemail.

Congress upheld Biden’s victory even after violence broke out on Capitol Hill. Spurred on by President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated election claims, armed rioters stormed the Capitol. Four people died in the attempted coup. The National Guard was later called up. President Trump finally pledged to a peaceful transfer of power after Vice President Mike Pence was asked to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove him from office.
