Election disinformation exposed
There’s a massive disinformation campaign that’s making baseless claims about the 2020 election, dividing the American people, and causing many to lose trust in our democratic process. And that’s a big problem for the whole country. That’s why Issue One launched a new video series telling the truth about the 2020 election, by millennial conservative and “Swamp Stories” podcast host Weston Wamp.
EPISODE 1: NO BASIS IN FACT OR LAW
When President Trump first claimed that the 2020 election was stolen, millennial conservative and host of the “Swamp Stories” podcast Weston Wamp was suspicious. How did Republicans win congressional seats all across the country — gaining seats in the U.S. House — on the same day that Trump claimed there was rampant fraud by Democrats?
But, still, Trump’s claim of a rigged election deserved to be properly investigated. And here’s the key: it was.
Watch: Weston Wamp, millennial conservative and host of the “Swamp Stories” podcast, debunks allegations of fraud in the 2020 election.
One of his most loyal allies, Attorney General William Barr, said that the Trump Justice Department uncovered no evidence of fraud at a level that would affect the outcome of an election.
More importantly, in more than 60 court cases filed by the Trump campaign all across the country, there were zero rulings supporting their claims of fraud.
Many of the judges were appointed by Republican presidents. Eight of them were appointed by Trump himself.
Here’s what the Trump-appointed judges said:
The Trump campaign’s claims are “bizarre.” “(Trump) lost on his merits”Trump appointee Judge Brett Ludwig
“Calling an election unfair does not make it so. Charges require specific allegations and then proof. We have neither here.”Trump appointee Judge Stephanos Bibas
Trump’s attorneys “harm the public interest” and their arguments have “no basis in fact or in law”Trump appointee Steven Grimberg
Trump lost on his merits. No specific allegations or proof. No basis in fact or law.
Trump’s own attorney Sidney Powell, who claimed that Dominion Voting machines were manipulated to help Biden, changed her narrative altogether once she faced a lawsuit from the company.
Her attorney actually said that people shouldn’t have been foolish enough to believe her. This was her defense:
“No reasonable person would conclude that the statements were truly statements of fact.”Attorney for Sidney Powell
