On Wednesday, Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo alleged during her morning show that an intel source had told her that President Trump did, in fact, “win the election.”
“An intel source told me President Trump did, in fact, win the election. He says that it is up to the Supreme Court to hear suits from other cases across the country to stop the clock,” Bartiromo said. “This follows the high court’s refusal to hear the lawsuit from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.”
Republican Senator Rand Paul has also been questioning the integrity of this year’s presidential election. On Wednesday, during a Senate hearing over election issues, Paul stated that “fraud happened” in the 2020 election.
“The fraud happened,” Paul said. “The election, in many ways, was stolen.”
Paul had said this in response to former United States Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Chris Krebs’ comments. He stated that the 2020 election was the most secure.
“The only way it will be fixed is by, in the future, reinforcing the laws and the last comment I would say and Mr. Krebs can speak for himself,” Paul said. “I think his job was keeping the foreigners out of the election. It was the most secure election based on the security of the internet and technology. Still, he has never voiced an opinion; he’s welcome today whether dead people voted. I don’t think he examined that. Did he examine non-citizens voting? So to say it was the safest election, sure I agree with your statement if you are referring to foreign intervention.”
“But if you are saying it’s the safest election based on no dead people voted, no non-citizens voted, no people broke the absentee rules,” he continued. “I think that’s false, and that’s what has upset a lot of people on our side is that they are taking your statement to mean ‘oh well, there were no problems in the election.’ I don’t think you examined any of the problems that we have heard here. So really, you are just referring to something different.”
President Donald Trump has also made it clear again that he will not be conceding. On Tuesday morning, he started a tweetstorm in response to the electoral vote on Monday, promising that there is “much more to come.”
“Tremendous problems being found with voting machines. They are so far off it is ridiculous,” President Trump tweeted. “This is not what the USA is all about. Law enforcement shielding machines. DO NOT TAMPER, a crime. Much more to come!”
“68% error rate in Michigan Voting Machines. Should be, by law, a tiny percentage of one percent. Did Michigan Secretary of State break the law?” he added in another tweet. “Stay tuned!”
