Trump, who had refused to concede the election, later tweeted to say he is directing his team to cooperate on the transition but is vowing to keep up the fight.
Michigan certified Biden’s victory Monday, and a federal judge in Pennsylvania tossed a Trump campaign lawsuit on Saturday seeking to prevent certification in that state.
Giuliani had told Lou Dobbs: ‘Deadlines are urgent, no question about it.
‘There isn’t a lot of time, but there’s time. And the fact is that the facts are there, we just need to get them before a trier of fact or before a court that’ll be fair and will listen.’

His assertion came just a day after team Trump sought to distance themselves from Sidney Powell, the lawyer who proclaimed she was going to ‘release the Kraken’.

Days after enduring a blistering commentary on Fox News by host Tucker Carlson, she got dumped from Trump’s constantly fluctuating legal team.
‘Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own. She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity,’ Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in a statement.
Giuliani added Monday: ‘The court in Pennsylvania cut it off without listening to a single fact.
‘And I don’t know how the judge could’ve concluded that the facts aren’t substantial when they haven’t even been presented yet.
‘Unfortunately, we haven’t yet gotten a fair decision. We will. We’ve got to be a little patient. One fair decision, one good hearing, and this will turn all around.’
Trump’s legal team has so far failed to produce any meaningful legal wins
Donald Trump took a massive step towards admitting defeat in the election Monday night by saying he was allowing the transition to Joe Biden to begin – but immediately claimed he can still overturn his defeat at the hands of voters
The General Services Administration ascertained Monday that President-elect Biden is the ‘apparent winner’ of the November 3 election.
That clears the way for the start of the transition from President Trump’s administration and allowing Biden to coordinate with federal agencies on plans for taking over on Jan. 20.
Trump had publicly refused to accept defeat and launched a series of losing court battles across the country making baseless claims of widespread voter fraud and seeking to overturn the election results.
The GSA action came after Michigan certified its election results and as Trump has lost most of his lawsuits as he sought to overturn the results of the vote, which gave Biden 302 electoral votes.
Trump has seen his case for victory fade day by day. He has yet to win a major court case.
In Pennsylvania on Sunday, a judge ruled that state can go forward with certifying its 20 electoral votes be certified for Biden.
Georgia is in the process of certifying its 16 electoral votes for Biden after a hand recount confirmed his victory, making him the first Democrat to carry the state since 1992.
And, despite making numerous allegations of voter fraud – including funding from Communists to turn votes in Biden’s favor and alleging voting machines from Dominion Systems changed Trump votes to Biden ones – the president’s team has not shown any evidence.
Numerous state election officials said there was no evidence of voter fraud.
Giuliani had told Lou Dobbs: ‘Deadlines are urgent, no question about it. ‘There isn’t a lot of time, but there’s time. And the fact is that the facts are there, we just need to get them before a trier of fact or before a court that’ll be fair and will listen’

Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee joined the ranks of Republicans Monday calling for Trump to concede and accept that he has lost reelection.
‘The presidential election is rapidly coming to a formal end,’ Alexander released in a statement shortly after the Michigan certification. ‘Recounts are being completed. Courts are resolving disputes. Most states will certify their votes by December 8.’
Ohio Sen. Rob Portman penned an article saying there is ‘no evidence’ of widespread voter fraud and saying the ‘initial’ determination of Biden as the winner of the presidential election hasn’t changed.
Immediately after the Michigan vote, Trump’s campaign sent out a statement from its senior legal advisor Jenna Ellis on certifications.
‘Certification by state officials is simply a procedural step,’ Ellis said in an email blast from the president’s campaign team. ‘We are going to continue combatting election fraud around the country as we fight to count all the legal votes. Americans must be assured that the final results are fair and legitimate.’
