If the Election Day shenanigans amount to a clear subversion of the results, Trump has a path to a remedy through the state legislatures of the relevant states.
“Just nonsense,” CNN quoted an anonymous former senior U.S. intelligence official responding to Donald Trump’s “baseless” allegation that Obama had candidate Trump’s “wires tapped” during the 2016 presidential campaign. A more careful look at the CNN article revealed hints of the truth peeking through from behind the carefully worded denials.
Kevin Lewis, a spokesman for Obama “denied” Trump’s allegation, stating, “no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice . . . neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen.”
Now we know that the Department of Justice was indeed surveilling the Trump campaign with the knowledge of President Obama. Did Obama ever “order” it? Probably not in so many words. But the substance of what Trump said in that fateful March 2017 tweet was true.
Trump gets things wrong. He exaggerates. He makes mistakes. But it’s wrong to characterize him as an out-and-out liar. When you unwrap his sometimes inartful declarations, you usually find a kernel of nuanced truth behind the bombast. Nobody cares when Biden lies because the lies follow the tide of the elite’s approved narrative. Trump is hated precisely because he sometimes correctly challenges official “truths.” He upsets the doublespeak and says the quiet part out loud.
Because of that history, I’m hesitant to dismiss his election fraud claims. And we’re seeing some familiar parsing by the mainstream media.
“There’s no voter fraud,” has been amended to “there’s no widespread voter fraud.” So should we all accept non-widespread fraud, whatever that means? I’ll leave it to other authors to inventory and assess the mosaic of statistical anomalies and anecdotal irregularities. Maybe these are just the product of wishful thinking by a sore loser. Our tech overlords, who so vigorously censor and undermine the pinpricks of election doubts, might be right. But if Trump is right, does he still have a path to victory in the 2020 election?
