“An associate” CALLING BULLSHIT! We need to force Rudy to produce some evidence of voter fraud during the impeachment trial. We need to put Trump in the spotlight to do the same. Other Congressmen and Senators that voted to overturn the election need to show some evidence as well. Can’t wait for their honeymoon to be over and the dirty laundry start to air.
