  • Former Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien did not appear as a witness because he was with his wife, who was giving birth. His lawyer read a statement for him.

  • A witness reported that an intoxicated Rudy Giuliani told Trump to declare victory on election night 2020, despite top advisors saying the election was too early to call. 

  • Former Attorney General Bill Barr debunked the claims of voter fraud promoted in Dinesh D’Souza’s movie 2000 Mules, saying the movie had no credibility. Barr also said that Trump refused to believe that there was no voter fraud.
