Hannity Admits in Fox News Lawsuit that ‘I Did Not Believe [Trump’s Big Lie] for One Second’

for more than two years Donald Trump has been sobbing about the 2020 presidential election that he pretends to believe was “rigged and stolen” from him. Never mind that he hasn’t been able to produce a shred of evidence of it more than sixty court cases. And for all of that time his official Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) has supported his “Big Lie” even when such support resulted in a violent insurrection in Washington, D.C., that Trump incited, and for which he may soon be indicted.

Fox News Sean Hannity

As a result of Fox News serving the seditious aspirations of Trump, the network is being sued for more than a billion dollars by Dominion Voting Systems for defamation. They allege that Fox News knowingly aired false stories that Dominion purposefully designed their voting machines to switch votes for Trump to Joe Biden.

RELATED: Dominion Voting Systems Files $1.6 Billion Defamation Lawsuit Against Fox News

Critical to the success of a defamation suit is the plaintiff’s ability to prove that the defendant knew, or should have known, that their defamatory statements were false and were made with malicious intent. And Dominion is apparently meeting that criteria according to reports of testimony given during deposition.

Specifically, testimony provided under oath reveals that Fox News Senior Trump-Fluffer Sean Hannity knew that Trump’s claims of election fraud were untrue, even a he was reporting on and endorsing them. When Hannity was asked by Dominion’s lawyer about Trump’s unfounded claims, he replied that “I did not believe it for one second.”

That’s about as clear a confirmation of deliberately defamatory speech as any court will ever hear. And unfortunately for Fox News, it isn’t the only example of it in this case. In September, a Fox News producer sent out a memo warning that the network must stop “pulling conspiracy theories from dark corners of the Web to justify then-President Donald Trump’s lies that the election had been stolen from him.” And Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott made similar warnings about Trump’s “Big Lie” purveyors and election deniers saying that “We can’t give the crazies an inch.”

The Dominion trial, which is scheduled to commence next April, is still just in its preliminary phase, conducting depositions and discovery. They have yet to present this evidence to a jury. And we still don’t know how much more evidence has been obtained, or will be obtained, through the acquisition of documents and depositions. But suffice to say that at this point Fox News must be extraordinarily nervous.

If the pretrial particulars continue to unfold as they have been thus far, look for Fox News to beg for a settlement. Dominion, however, has said that they won’t settle for anything that doesn’t include a confession of guilt by Fox News and an unqualified apology and retraction.

However, even if Fox News concedes to Dominion’s demands and they settle, Fox still has to deal with another election related billion dollar lawsuit by Smartmatic. And a judge in that case has already issued an opinion that “actual malice” is evident in statements by Fox’s Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson. So 2023 looks to be a, let’s say “interesting” year for Fox News.

MAGA Marge (Taylor Greene) Blames Imaginary Voter Fraud, not GOP Losers, for Midterm Losses

The post-midterm election analysis is going to go on for the next few weeks, maybe months. Democrats were expected to lose dozens of seats in Congress according to historical precedent and the low favorability of President Biden. That didn’t happen.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, QAnon

The surprising strength of Democratic candidates around the country is a welcome relief to Democrats, and a stinging wound for Republicans. Under the circumstances, the losing party would ordinarily commence a political autopsy to ascertain what went wrong and how to fix it. But, true to form, the Trump Republican Party refuses to behave rationally, even in their own interest.

RELATED: Rep. Raskin: Donald Trump is the Problem of the Republican Party and He May Destroy Their Party

On Monday morning GOP grouch, Marjorie Taylor Greene, was a guest on Steve Bannon’s “War Room.” And her post-election postmortem was as predictable as pestilence at a trash pile. As usual, Greene displayed the hallmark Republican aversion to taking responsibility for anything, when they can just shift blame to others. On that score, Greene summed up the GOP’s electoral defeats thusly…

“We lost in 2020 because of the mail-in ballots and because it was ripe for election fraud. And now we’re watching it again, especially in Kari Lake’s race over in Arizona. This shouldn’t be this way. Everyone was calling for a “red wave.”

“Either all the pollsters were wrong and they need to be fired – and that’s Republicans, Democrats, and every media pollsters saying that we were going to get a red wave, or we have to finally acknowledge the fact – or at least we have to get the other side to acknowledge the fact and admit the truth – that mail-in ballots is the biggest problem in our election and it is going to be a major factor going forward into 2024.”

Greene began her harangue by reaching back to the 2020 presidential race that Donald Trump lost decisively by more than seven million votes. For the past two years Greene and her Republican confederates, led by Trump and his “Big Lie” lie, have failed to produce a shred of evidence that there was any significant election fraud. And they have likewise proven no fraud in 2022 either.

Nevertheless, Greene is outraged by the pollsters she alleges contrived a deliberately false narrative of a massive Republican victory. Bear in mind that Republicans have been bashing pollsters since way before this year’s election. So it’s curious that she is now singling them out for criticism when she has never accepted them as reliable sources before.

What’s more, Greene’s undermining of democracy by casting false doubts on mail-in voting is a preview of where Republicans will be going in the next few months as they continue their crusade to suppress the vote by making it harder to participate.

Now Greene is calling for pollsters and other alleged perpetrators of that “red wave” rhetoric to be fired. Okay. In that case Greene is advocating for the mass termination of everyone at Fox News…

Firing the notoriously dishonest partisans at Fox News would just be the start of the house cleaning that the media requires. Media outlets such as Newsmax, OAN, Breitbart, even Greene’s host this morning, Steve Bannon, should be next on the firing line. Bannon predicted that Republicans could pickup 100 seats this election. He was only off by about 100.

Greene is among the most extreme members of the GOP caucus in Congress. And her refusal to accept reality with regard to the race is typical of her party peers. Which is good news for Democrats. The more delusional Republicans are about what happened this week, the lees able they will be to correct course. Which could pave a the path for another Democratic rout of the GOP in 2024. All thanks to the madness of Greene et al.

GOP Chair Ronna McDaniel Can’t Give a Straight Answer on Whether Republicans Support Democracy

The midterm elections this year have been accurately described as among the most important in generations. President Biden is among those who have noted that “an overwhelming majority of Americans believe our democracy is at risk … that democracy is on the ballot.”

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

The Republican Party, however, is adamant that elections are riddled with fraud, despite having no evidence whatsoever to support that claim. They are simply determined to deny the legitimacy of any election that they lose. And they will concoct whatever crackpot conspiracy they need to in order to peddle their lies to their cult followers. That strategy is one that emanates from the top, as Donald Trump remains the chief promulgator of the “Big Lie.”

FOR INSTANCE: Trump Makes Scary, Math-Challenged Claim to Explain Biden’s 7 Million Vote Margin of Victory

On CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday morning, host Dana Bash interviewed the Chair of the Republican National Committee, Ronna McDaniel. During the segment Bash played a video clip of Wisconsin’s GOP Sen. Ron Johnson being asked if he would accept the election results if he loses. Johnson refused to state flatly that he would do so, instead implying – without any basis whatsoever – that Democrats were planning to engage in some sort of fraudulent activity. Which led to the following exchange between Bash and McDaniel (video below)

Bash: Simple yes or no. Should Republican candidates, Ron Johnson – all of them – accept election results?
McDaniel: Well, I would say the same to Stacy Abrams, right? Or Hillary Clinton who’s already saying in 2024 we’re gonna rig the elections. That’s not helpful. Listen, you should have a recount, you should have a canvas, and then go to the courts, and then everybody should accept the results. That’s what it should be.”

WHUT? Stacy Abrams and Hillary Clinton both accepted the results of their respective election losses. They may have also spoken about incidents that had documented impacts on the results, such as gerrymandering and voter suppression tactics, but they never sought to decertify the elections or engaged in unlawful – and even violent – measures to overturn them, as Republicans have done. And anything Clinton said about “rigging” the 2024 election was nothing more than quoting what Republicans have promised to do themselves.

What’s more, McDaniel’s suggestion that “everybody should accept the results” after a recount, a canvas, and court judgments, is wholly dishonest. All of those things took place after the 2020 election many times. And in every case the results were affirmed as fair and accurate. Even Trump’s own administration officials praised the election as “the most secure in American history.”

SEE: Tucker Carlson Hysterically Hypes Bogus Election ‘Fraud’ Film By Convicted Election Fraudster

However, none of that has stopped Trump and his GOP confederates, including Fox News, from persisting with their election denialism. McDaniel went on to say that…

“I’m also not gonna say that if there’s problems, that we shouldn’t be able to address that. If there’s real problems everyone should be able to address that. […] I’ll give you an example. In Virginia they wouldn’t let people vote if you weren’t wearing a mask. That’s not the state statute. So there were people actually being denied voting because they didn’t have a mask on.”

Of course anyone should be able to address a real problem. Unfortunately for McDaniel and the GOP, they haven’t been able to locate a single “real” problem yet, after two years and more than sixty court cases.

The example McDaniel gives in her reply is actually an example of the GOP’s dishonesty. There was never a prohibition of people from voting in Virginia for not wearing a mask, and not a single person was denied a vote. Masks were encouraged, but not mandatory Remember, the coronavirus pandemic was killing thousands of people a day in November of 2020. As reported at the time by the Virginia Mercury…

“Virginia voters who show up on Election Day without a mask or visibly sick will be asked to put a mask on or cast their ballot outside the polling place, but they won’t be denied access if they refuse, according to state election officials.”

The crusade to undermine the faith of the American people in democracy is proceeding at a rapid pace. That’s because Republicans have a fundamental aversion to the concept of government by the people. It’s what drives their campaigns to suppress voting, to grant corporations the rights of persons, and to refuse to accept any outcome that isn’t in their favor.

All of that is what makes this election so critical to the future of democracy in America. So it is imperative that we all vote and persuade as many other democracy-loving patriots to vote as well. This isn’t a drill.

Trump Makes Scary, Math-Challenged Claim to Explain Biden’s 7 Million Vote Margin of Victory

For nearly two years now, Donald Trump has been peddling his dangerous and preposterous allegations that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him. Now, just in time for Halloween, Trump is proposing a new and frightening horror story for how President Biden and the Democrats stole the election.

Donald Trump, Walking Dead Voters

Throughout the past two years Trump has been utterly incapable of providing a shred of evidence to support his claims of voter fraud. Even though he and his minions have pushed their conspiracy theories in over 60 court cases that they lost. They have produced and promoted (with the help of Fox News) pathetic and easily debunked crocumentaries that failed to expose any fraud whatsoever. They have promised to present their proof dozens of times, with each promise going unfulfilled. They seem to have an obsessive need to humiliate themselves with their persistent, but fruitless, crusade.

RELATED: In Jesus’ Name: Messiah Trump Promises Election Fraud ‘Truth’ is Coming Out – In Two Weeks?

The latest episode of Trump’s election fraud fallacies took place on Tuesday when he joined Dinesh D’Souza (himself a convicted election fraudster who Trump pardoned) for yet another discussion of Trump’s election disinformation. And Trump didn’t hold back the crazy as he sought to advance his “Big Lie” to new heights of absurdity…

“And then, of course they voted 6, 7, 8 times, as much as they could in the local areas. Some of the people went back, I guess, they said 28 times in one day to vote at different places with numerous votes. but they can’t put in 1,000 because it wouldn’t look right. They’re very smart. They go in with 5 votes, 6 votes, 7 votes, and then they go to another one. But it adds up to millions of votes.”

Of course it does. Trump has obviously given this a great deal of thought and is convinced of the accuracy of his claim. So let’s break it down.

Biden won in 2020 with seven million votes more than Trump. For him to have amassed that many more votes by deploying an army of voting criminals submitting as many as eight phony ballots each, the Biden conspiracy would have had to recruit 875,000 people willing to risk going to prison in order to rig the election.

Where would those people come from? How would they have been recruited and trained? And how would all of that been done without a single person spilling the beans, or a single slip up exposing the whole scheme?

Even if we use Trump’s highest number of ballot cheats (28), it would have taken 250,000 of them to hit the seven million mark. It would have been the biggest mobilization of criminals in history. If Biden could have planned and pulled this off, he deserves to have won. And remember, this is someone that the Trump camp says is senile and totally incompetent.

What’s more, all of these millions of votes would have had to have been cast in someone’s name. They couldn’t just be duplicates because those would not have counted. So apparently Trump believes that there were seven million phantom voters with valid registrations whose ballots could be hijacked. Perhaps they’re all zombies.

With the 2022 midterm election now less than two weeks away, Biden should reassemble his voter fraud army and deploy them to win supermajorities in the House and Senate, as well as in state houses and other local offices. There wouldn’t be a darn thing that Trump and his Republican losers could do about it.

But don’t be too scared. If Democrats prevail in the midterms, Trump will surely claim that that’s exactly what happened. And still with no evidence whatsoever. Since the GOP has abandoned any attempt to shape a party platform (other than gutting Social Security and Medicare, giving the government control over reproductive choice, and cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy), they have plenty of time to contrive these crackpot conspiracies. What’s really scary is that with all that extra time, you’d think they would be better at it.

Tucker Carlson of Fox News Says People Who Don’t Vote In Person Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Vote

The 2022 midterm elections are now only 78 days away. And Republicans are getting nervous considering the trending of polls that show Democrats gaining ground in both the House and the Senate races coming up.

Tucker Carlson, Fox News

Among the reasons for the Democrats’ optimism are the legislative victories they have enjoyed, passing bills on infrastructure, economic relief, healthcare, tax reform, climate change, gun safety, and more. President Biden is also presiding over lowering gas prices and easing inflation.

What’s more, the House committee investigating the January 6th insurrection is having a profound impact on Donald Trump’s already toxic reputation. For his part, Trump isn’t helping himself by having stolen sensitive national security materials from the White House and hiding them at his Mar-a-Lago bunker.

RELATED: Trump’s Lawyers Have a Shiny New Excuse for His Hoarding Classified Documents at Mar-a-Lago

Consequently, Republicans need to fortify their electoral flank by poisoning the political environment with fallacious allegations of fraud before a single vote has been cast. And naturally, the GOP’s Ministry of Disinformation, Fox News, is taking the lead.

On Friday’s episode of Tucker Carlson’s program he had a segment on the United States Postal Service, which he characterized as engaging in a nefarious plot of some sort. He warned that…

“The Postal Service is now actually taking an active and explicit role in our elections, but not on behalf of Trump. They have created a dedicated division to ‘handle election mail’ ahead of the 2020 [sic] midterms.”

OMG! The mail meanies are scheming to “handle election mail,” and worst of all, it is “not on behalf of Trump!” Even more alarming is that they are traveling back in time to meddle with the 2020 election. Carlson went on to foment more fear, asking…

“Why is there any mail-in balloting? If you can’t be bothered to get to the polls, why do you have a right to participate in democracy? I don’t understand. It’s just an invitation to fraud. they support it because it allows fraud. Why are Republicans putting up with this?”

So Carlson has an array of citizens whom he wants to stop from voting. They include the elderly, and the disabled, and soldiers, and students, and travelers. It also includes every resident of Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Vermont, and Washington, where they have only mail-in voting. And Carlson’s guest, conspiracy crackpot Chuck Devore, weighed in saying that…

“I don’t think people should be trusting the Postal service with their mail-in ballots […because…] you can send people to the house of voters and ‘help’ them with their ballots to make sure that they vote for the right people.”

Never mind that there is no evidence of this happening. It is likely something that Republicans do, so they assume that Democrats are doing it as well. There is also no evidence of mail-in voter fraud outside of a scattering of incidents that, as noted, usually involve Republican vote scammers.

The truth is that Carlson, Fox News, and the Republican Party know that Democrats are more likely to avail themselves of mail-in and early voting. That’s partly because Donald Trump has demonized the practice and made his cult followers suspicious of it. He did this despite the findings of his own administration that concluded there was no widespread voter fraud.

RELATED: GOOD NEWS: Trump Warns That With Mail-In Voting There Will Be No More Republicans

Trump, of course, is not above hypocrisy. While he frequently demands that only in-person voting should be permitted, he himself votes by mail. And he even advocates it for others when he thinks it will benefit him.

It’s a good thing that Carlson doesn’t get to decide who can and cannot vote. Unfortunately, there are too many GOP state legislatures who can decide. And they have been working tirelessly to suppress the votes of Democrats through gerrymandering and oppressive election processes.

As a result, Democrats have a huge burden to carry if they want to realize the gains that recent polling is showing for them. So those polls must not be an excuse to celebrate and relax. They must be motivation to work harder than ever to get patriotic Americans to vote on November 8th and save our democracy. And as an added incentive, the more people who vote by mail, the more Tucker Carlson (and Trump, and Fox News, and the GOP) will cry about being the losers that they are.

Trump Projects His Own Dementia on Biden in a Nauseating Mash Up of COVID and Election Fraud

On Saturday President Joe Biden revealed that he has a “rebound” case of COVID-19, something that is fairly common among those treated with Paxlovid. He reports that he has no symptoms, but will be isolating in consideration of others, while continuing to work in the White House residence.

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

However, proving once again that there is no bottom to Donald Trump’s well of disgusting repugnancy, the Former Guy took time away from his Saudi sponsored, Pro-Ass (Pro-Assassination) golf tournament to post a callous commentary on Biden’s health. Trump said that…

“Joe Biden’s second bout of Covid, sometimes referred to as the China Virus, was sadly misdiagnosed by his doctors. He instead has Dementia, but is happily recovering well. Joe is thinking moving, part time, to one of those beautiful Wisconsin nursing homes, where almost 100% of the resident miraculously, and for the first time in history, had the strength and energy to vote – even if those votes were cast illegally. Get will soon, Joe!?”

After several years of being subjected to Trump’s infantile antics, it is still shocking to see him act out this way. And it’s even worse to know that there are still people stupid enough to support him. Trump’s comment is typical of his inbred immaturity. He has truly captured the Beavis and/or Butthead character that he’s obviously aiming for.

Let’s begin with Trump’s wretchedly insensitive response to someone – in this case the President of the United States – disclosing that he is ill. Imagine Trump’s response if anyone reacted to him getting sick again with what is sometimes referred to as the “Trump Virus.” But that wasn’t offensive enough for Trump. He needed to go further by offering his imbecilic prognosis that Biden is actually suffering from dementia. That’s pure projection on Trump’s part. And it is contrary to what the American people think.

RELATED: Fox News Poll: Majority Say Trump Doesn’t Have the ‘Mental Soundness’ to Serve

Biden always demonstrates intelligence, compassion, and an ability to comprehend complex issues. Trump, on the other hand, thinks windmills cause cancer, hurricanes should be nuked, stealth fighters are really invisible, injecting bleach cures COVID, and that he won the 2020 presidential election that he lost by seven million votes. And, oh yeah, Biden never tried to overthrow the government. And Trump thinks that Biden is the one who is cognitively impaired?

Trump was still not satisfied with his foul fulminating. He felt compelled to let loose more of his election fraud lies. Trump’s claims regarding Wisconsin nursing homes are flagrantly false. They are the product of dishonest propagators of Trump’s “Big Lie” and have been debunked repeatedly. Trump and his seditionist accomplices have never been able to provide a shred of evidence of any “illegal” votes.

It is a sad spectacle to see a former occupant of the White House lying so brazenly and flinging insults at someone with a potentially serious illness. But it is what we all have come to expect from Donald Trump, whose stunted emotional state is stuck permanently in unmannered toddler mode. America will be, in Trump’s words, “great again” when Trump is no longer paid any attention. And after seeing in his latest comments the sickening depths to which he will sink, that day cannot come soon enough.

WATCH: OAN Concedes that ‘There Was No Widespread Voter Fraud’ to Settle Defamation Lawsuit

For more than a year and a half the crusade to keep Donald Trump’s cult convinced that the 2020 election was “rigged” has been supported by right-wing media outlets including Fox News, Newsmax and One America News Network (OAN). Their flagrant dishonesty resulted in the deadly insurrection in Washington, D.C. by brainwashed Trump disciples intent on preventing President Biden’s victory from being certified and undermining democracy.

Donald Trump, OAN

Another result of the conservative press disseminating blatant lies about election fraud was the filing of billion dollar lawsuits against them by voting systems companies:

Dominion sued Fox News for $1.6 billion.
Smartmatic sued Fox News for $2.7 billion, and later…
Added Newsmax and OAN to the lawsuit.

In addition to these lawsuits, OAN was sued by two election workers in Georgia who the network (and Rudy Giuliani) asserted had engaged in criminal misconduct while counting votes. There was never any evidence to support the charges and the network knew it. Which is why they recently settled with the election workers. And now they have aired a concession that their “reporting” was untrue. OAN admitted that…

“Georgia officials have concluded that there was no widespread voter fraud by election workers who counted ballots at the State Farm Arena in November of 2020. The results of this investigation indicate that Ruby Freeman and Wandrea ‘Shaye’ Moss did not engage in ballot fraud or criminal misconduct while working at State Farm Arena on election night. A legal matter with this network and the two election workers has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties through a fair and reasonable settlement.”

For the record, Georgia officials concluded that “there was no widespread voter fraud” a year and a half ago. It was OAN who continued to peddle lies about it until faced with this lawsuit. And their falsehoods fueled Trump’s “Big Lie” the election was “stolen,” wherein he had even cited the falsely accused election workers by name at his cult rallies.

This admission of “fake news” by OAN only relates to the incidents in Georgia. However, the network is still on the hook for broader allegations of defamation in the other lawsuits and they have altered their editorial stance on election fraud. In fear of further litigation, they placed a disclaimer on the air prior to a crocumentary by MyPillow’s Mike Lindell, disavowing any connection to it or its preposterous assertions. It’s title, “Absolute Proof” had the conspicuous flaw of containing no proof whatsoever. Not unlike the crocumentary by convicted election fraudster, Dinesh D’Souza.

OAN is going to have considerably more trouble arriving at a settlements with Smartmatic and Dominion. Their slander was more than just defamatory. It caused substantial financial and reputational harm. But OAN’s future is already in doubt since they were dumped by their biggest distributer, DirecTV.

Tucker Carlson Hysterically Hypes Bogus Election ‘Fraud’ Film By Convicted Election Fraudster

A year and half ago, Donald Trump decisively lost the presidential election to Joe Biden. But the sting of that humiliation continues to torment the twice impeached, former reality TV game show host, and failed real estate con man. And in his desperation, Trump persists in peddling his “Big Lie,” the delusional, factless allegations that the election was “rigged.”

Fox News. Tucker Carlson

Throughout that same period of recent history, Fox News has embraced and dispensed Trump’s lies to their willfully gullible viewers. And now a new film is being pitched that purports to blow the lid off of the election fraud scandal. Surprisingly, its title, “2,000 Mules” is not a reference to the numerous jackasses who produced it. But unsurprisingly, it was featured on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program on Thursday night, between segments where he is fawning over Russian dictator, Vladimir Putin.

RELATED: Tucker Carlson: US is Only Aiding Ukraine to ‘Punish Russia’ for ‘Stealing Hillary Clinton’s Coronation’

Carlson introduced this segment with a trio of Democrats asserting, correctly, that “the 2020 election was the most secure in history:”

Rep. Adam Schiff: The American people chose Joe Biden to be their next president by an enormous margin. The successful conduct of that election, among the most secure in American history, was not an accident.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren: The 2020 election was the most secure conducted in modern history.

Rep. Eric Swalwell: You’re gonna see states like Arizona and Georgia learn the wrong lesson from 2020, the most secure election ever.

To which Carlson replied with a maniacal laugh…

“That’s just the most secure election ever. Really hair hat? Tell us how. He can’t tell us how. He’s just lying. Maybe it was the most secure election ever, but we have a right to determine for ourselves if it was the most secure election ever. Period. We have an absolute, god-given right.”

And the video of this malarkey was posted by Donald Trump’s Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington:

“Hair hat”? Let’s just set aside that boneheaded attempt at an insult. Carlson is complaining that those who claim that the election was secure can’t confirm it. Of course the obligation to confirm rests with those who allege fraud. And they have had a year and a half, and more than sixty court cases, to prove their allegations and have failed entirely. It is Carlson and his cohorts who are lying. If he is so intent on “determin[ing] for ourselves” whether the election was rigged, what’s stopping him? Why hasn’t he, or Trump, or Fox News, done so yet? Perhaps because they know they are lying.

RELATED: WTF? Tucker Carlson Mocks Biden for Believing that He Won in 2020, Which, of Course, He Did

On this episode of Carlson’s propaganda-fest, he interviewed the film’s producer, Catherine Englebrecht. She’s the president of True the Vote, a rabidly partisan and thoroughly disreputable band of wingnut activists. Englebrecht worked with the convicted felon, Dinesh D’Souza, on “2,000 Mules.” For the record, after pleading guilty, D’Souza was convicted of – wait for it – campaign finance fraud! A crime so heinous that, naturally, Trump pardoned him. Now he’s using his experience as an election cheat to make false allegations about election cheating.

Needless to say, the film that Carlson and Fox News are promoting contains no evidence of voter fraud whatsoever. If they had anything incriminating they would have already presented it in court, under oath, where legal remedies could be addressed. But they continue to have nothing but wild accusations without a shred of proof. In fact, all the proof is held by those who certified the election.

The New York Times contacted election officials in all fifty states, including Republicans, and every one said that there was “no evidence of widespread fraud or irregularities in this election.” That’s the same conclusion made by a “voting integrity” commission formed by Trump himself. And several members of Trump’s administration also upheld the legitimacy of the election. For instance, the director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Chris Krebs, said that

“The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. […] There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”

And that’s not all

Christopher Wray, FBI Director: We have not seen, historically, any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election, whether it’s by mail or otherwise.

Benjamin Hovland, of the U.S. Election Assist­ance Commission: Time and time again, when the rubber hits the road, there’s no evidence — whether that’s in court cases, whether that’s in the presidential commission that was … an embarrassment.

Ben Ginsberg, Veteran Repub­lican Party Election Lawyer: As he confronts losing, Trump has devoted his campaign and the Republican Party to this myth of voter fraud.

Karl Rove: Mr. Trump must prove systemic fraud, with illegal votes in the tens of thousands. There is no evidence of that so far.

Attorney General William Barr: To date, [DOJ invest­ig­at­ors] have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a differ­ent outcome in the elec­tion.

Attorney General Barr later elaborated on his view telling ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl (in his recent book “Betrayal”) that “My suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all bullshit.” Which, come to think of it, is actually a pretty good description of Carlson’s crackpot conspiracy theorizing, as well as the whole four years that Trump was occupying the White House.

Trump Spokeswoman Thrills QAnon Crowd with Call for Mass Arrests of Imaginary Election Riggers

The “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged” continues to be the top priority of Donald Trump’s endless crusade for constant attention, blind adoration, and the financial fleecing of his faithful flock. It’s almost all he talks about at his traveling cult rallies and staged, right-wing interviews.

So naturally Trump’s spokes-shill and Twitter proxy, Liz Harrington, is hammering away at the same illusory issues. Harrington recently spoke at the “Patriots Arise” conference in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, a QAnon affiliated affair where crackpot conspiracies are welcomed with enthusiastic glee. According to reporting by Vice, Harrington painted a frightening picture of what would occur if they failed to address the fictitious election fraud that her boss is so obsessed with:

“It’s so important to have accountability and have that trust restored because otherwise you’re going to get more of it. There’s no accountability? Yep. They’re gonna start arresting political opponents. They’re gonna start throwing political dissidents in jail. They’re going to parade people and interrogate you for your free speech.”

OMG! Harrington is foretelling a dystopian future of oppressive, police-state tactics to clamp down on innocent Trumpists who are only worried that democracy has been subverted by communists, or Satanists, or whoever is the cartoon villain of the moment. Never mind that they have been unable to produce a shred of evidence of any election rigging cabal despite trying for more than a year and half.

However, Harrington has a solution to avoid this harrowing holocaust of political prisoners. And ironically it is centered on implementing a campaign of mass political arrests:

“You think it’s gonna be better next time? You really think if there’s no arrests made from 2020, if there’s no real exposing of it and getting these people and holding them accountable, you really think they won’t do it again?”

That’s right. If there are no arrests made of the perpetrators who don’t exist, then what never happened in the first place is all going to happen again. Harrington told Vice that “Anyone who violated election laws should be charged. They could start with those who committed election fraud felonies on camera.”

Harrington is absolutely right about charging election law violators. Although the biggest problem with her proposal, from her perspective, is that nearly all of the relatively few cases of election fraud so far uncovered were committed by Republicans and Trump supporters. In some cases the criminals were Trump’s closest associates, including his former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows.

Harrington’s demand that mass arrests be undertaken for crimes that she can’t prove took place is a gross subversion of justice. But the principle of holding actual wrongdoers accountable is honorable and appropriate. Hopefully the Justice Department is listening and will begin to hand down indictments for Trump and his accomplices who tried to orchestrate a violent coup. There is already ample evidence of those crimes – and many others – in the public record. Because, as Harrington helpfully pointed out, “if there’s no real exposing of it and getting these people and holding them accountable, you really think they won’t do it again?”

Trump Posts ‘Foolproof’ Evidence that the Election Was ‘Rigged’ But it’s Only Proof for Fools

Sixteen months after the 2020 presidential election Donald Trump is still whining petulantly about the election being “rigged” and “stolen” from him. In all of that time – including more than 60 court challenges – he has failed utterly to produce a shred of evidence. He has succeeding only in establishing himself as the biggest sore loser in American politics. Even his cult followers are bored with his schtick.

Donald Trump

Trump’s persistence in this lost cause continued Tuesday with a post by his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington. The tweet made some emphatic declarations regarding his insistence that the election was rife with voter fraud. He said that…

“This is 100% conclusive and determinative evidence. When will the Republicans finally act. Not only was the 2020 Election Rigged, but they’ll do it again. Leadership, for once, must step up to the plate and hit the ball out of the park. This is your chance. The people, who are disgusted with your weakness and indifference, are waiting. Schumer and Pelosi would never stand for this if it were the other way around. This is ‘foolproof,’ on video tape for everyone to see. Do something!”

Not surprisingly, what Trump is describing as “100% conclusive and determinative evidence” is neither conclusive nor determinative. It isn’t even evidence. Trump is regurgitating the results of a thoroughly disreputable pack of prevaricators known deceitfully as “True the Vote.” These election truthers put together a video collage of what they claimed were people committing felony voter fraud by depositing multiple absentee ballots in drop boxes in Georgia.

The only problem with that accusation is that everything seen on the videos was perfectly legal. According to Georgia law

“…mailing or delivery [of absentee ballots] may be made by the elector’s mother, father, grandparent, aunt, uncle, brother, sister, spouse, son, daughter, niece, nephew, grandchild, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, or an individual residing in the household of such elector.”

Additional authorized persons include caretakers for the disabled and employees of hospitals and prisons for voters thus confined. Nothing in Trump’s so-called “evidence” indicated that anyone depositing the ballots was not legally permitted to do so. What’s more, there was no way of knowing who the votes were for on those ballots. So even if the persons depositing them in the drop boxes were unauthorized, they may have been Trump voters who were in violation of the law. Which, more often than not, is the case.

And that’s not all. When Trump promised a couple of weeks ago that this allegedly incriminating evidence would be released, he said that it would reveal “four or five million people cheating.” Obviously, it would be impossible for that many ballots to be stuffed into the drop boxes. And, once again, since we still wouldn’t know who the votes were for, there’s no way the election outcome could be altered.

Nevertheless, on the basis of this baloney, Trump is demanding that some ambiguous “Leadership” figure “step up to the plate” and take some unspecified action. There is, of course, no legal path to the remedies that Trump and his cronies have babbled about for the past year, such as decertifying the election and coronating himself as King of America. It’s just more of the seditious coup plotting that Don Trump Jr was recently caught engaging in.

So Trump’s latest sorry attempt at proving that the election was rigged has just turned out to be another pathetic sham orchestrated by some really bad con artists. Who would have thought that such a conclusion to a Trump project would end up this big a failure?
