Former US Attorney General Bill Barr likens chasing election fraud claims to playing “whack-a-mole” as former President Trump responds to the January 6th House committee’s “one-sided” proceedings.
Per Barr’s deposition to the January 6th House committee, he repeatedly warned the White House that there was “no evidence to support Trump’s claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 election.”
On Monday, Trump issued a 12-page rebuttal to testimony and evidence presented in public hearings Monday and last Thursday.
Trump repeated his claims that the November 2020 presidential election was stolen from him and rigged.
Excerpts from STATEMENT BY PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP:
“The truth is, according to Joe Biden, that the Swamp has created the “most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics,”and it centers around
ballot trafficking. How unfair and illegal is this? How do you win an election against this? But we did, getting almost 75 million votes, the most in history for a sitting President.”
“Nobody brings this up, but as President, I suffered years of vicious lies, scandals, and innuendo concerning a fake and contrived narrative of Russia, Russia, Russia. The entire Russia Hoax was a concoction made up by Hillary Clinton and the Democrat Party. It was used as an excuse for her loss, but endured throughout my entire Administration.
It was a fake and fraudulent narrative, and now they’re trying to do it again.”
“The illegal ballot harvesting operation is an insult to the democratic process, but the kicker is the media feeding us the bogus line that this was the most secure election in U.S.
history. What a load of bologna! The data shows us how compromised the system was. The math shows us that it changed the outcome of the Election.”
