Leading Republicans Pressured to Find Fraud
Prominent conservatives have called on members of their party to find fraud in the 2020 Election, even after it was proven secure.
January 6th Investigators are in the process of compiling a list of all the times election fraud was pushed between November 2020 and the January 6th Insurrection.
Donald Trump’s Call to Georgia
On January 2, 2021, President Trump pressured Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brad Raffensperger, to find votes to overturn election results in his favor after he lost to Joe Biden in the November polls.
In a one-hour audio conversation, Trump urged Raffensperger to find votes for him in the state of Georgia. "So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state."
"You should want to have an accurate election. And you're a Republican," Trump said.
After 3 ballot counts, Raffensperger confirmed election results were correct and pushed back on President Trump’s claims. "We believe that we do have an accurate election," Raffensperger said in response, to which Trump replied, "No, no you don't. ... Not even close. You're off by hundreds of thousands of votes."
“Yeah, sad but true ... I’m a conservative Republican and I’m disappointed, but those are the results,”Raffensperger said.
Since Raffensperger refused to invent election fraud, Trump has since backed another Republican opponent to replace him in the coming election.
Trump Pressured Barr to Order An Investigation of Election Fraud
Attorney General William Barr ordered the Department of Justice to investigate claims of voter fraud. Barr’s memo ordered prosecutors to "pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections."
Richard Pilger, who was director of the Election Crimes Branch of the Justice Department, resigned in protest of the order.
Barr made a U-turn after resigning in December, disclosing that President Trump was furious when he told him there was no evidence of voter fraud. "I told him that all this stuff was bulls--- ... about election fraud. And, you know, it was wrong to be shoveling it out the way his team was," Barr said.
Wife of Supreme Court Justice, Virginia Ginni Thomas, Pressures White House Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, to Find Fraud
The House January 6th Committee is now investigating text messages between Former White House Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, and Virginia Ginni Thomas, a conservative activist and Wife of Supreme Court Justice, Clarence Thomas.
The messages show that Thomas attended the Stop the Steal Rally that preempted the US capitol insurrection on January 6th, 2021 and spent the months in between the 2020 Election and Inauguration pressuring Meadows to find voter fraud and prevent the election from being certified.
Thomas urged Meadows to work to overturn the elections, describing Biden’s victory as a “heist”.
"Help This Great President stand firm, Mark!!! ... You are the leader, with him, who is standing for America's constitutional governance at the precipice. The majority knows Biden and the Left is attempting the greatest Heist of our History," wrote Thomas.
Meadows responded to Thomas’ messages with, "I will stand firm. We will fight until there is no fight left. Our country is too precious to give up on. Thanks for all you do."
Giuliani’s Claims Voter Fraud
President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, claimed at a November 15 news conference that thousands of ballots arrived early at a counting center in Detroit, suggesting those ballots were meant to shore up Biden votes. This claim and several others on election fraud were rejected by a judge on November 13th, 2020.
Pompeo Announces Trump’s Second Term
America’s top diplomat under President Trump, Mike Pompeo resisted the election results, insisting there was going to be a smooth transition to a second term Trump administration and added that President Trump had defeated Joe Biden.
Because then Vice President Mike Pence presided over the election certification in Congress, many Republican leaders like Pompeo and Guiliani pressured him to overturn the election results. However, Pence determined he has no right to overturn the election results, angering many Trump supporters that were convinced of fraud by other elected officials.
