“The Election in Many Ways Was Stolen”: Rand Paul Goes Off During Senate Heating, Blasts Dems

During a Senate hearing on Wednesday over election issues, Republican Senator Rand Paul went off, stating that “fraud happened” in the 2020 election.

“The fraud happened,” Paul said. “The election in many ways was stolen.”

Paul was responding to comments made by former United States Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Chris Krebs who stated that the 2020 election was the most secure election.

“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 security of the internet and technology, but he never has voiced an opinion, he’s welcome today, on whether or not 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 was 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 very clear that he is not backing down. On Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump unleashed a Twitter storm in response to Monday’s electoral vote, 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!”

He later added, “Tremendous evidence pouring in on voter fraud. There has never been anything like this in our Country!”

On Wednesday, the President doubled down.

“Perhaps the biggest difference between 2016 and 2020 is @FoxNews, despite the fact that I went from 63,000,000 Votes to 75,000,000 Votes, a record 12,000,000 Vote increase. Obama went down 3,000,000 Votes, and won. Rigged Election!!!”

President Trump also blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who earlier congratulated Joe Biden on his electoral victory.

“Trump’s allies slam Mitch McConnell for congratulating Biden https://mol.im/a/9057747 via @MailOnline,” President Trump tweeted while citing an ariticle from the Daily Mail. “Mitch, 75,000,000 VOTES, a record for a sitting President (by a lot). Too soon to give up. Republican Party must finally learn to fight. People are angry!”
