As Bonchie covered earlier, Team Trump held a press conference Monday afternoon, and Fox News almost immediately cut away, saying they had no evidence of widespread fraud. Well, as I wrote shortly after the presser, Kayleigh McEnany described some particulars of widespread fraud in Pennsylvania. When she was finished, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel (I refuse to put the “Romney” in there) detailed some specific instances of wrongdoing in Michigan – and one of them is a “hoo-boy” instance.
Wayne County, Republican poll watchers were denied their legal right to monitor the election and purposely kept in the dark, both literally and figuratively. Election workers blocked windows and padlocked doors.
There are thousands of reports of poll watchers being intimidated and unable to do their job, and as of 4 pm this afternoon 131 affidavits have been completed just in Michigan, with over 2800 incident reports that have been submitted to us since Election Day.
Two new lawsuits were filed today by people who were working in Detroit, and a whistleblower — we have gotten their information to the Eastern District of Michigan.
McDaniel stressed to the reporters that with over 2800 incident reports, it takes time to vet each one, interview the witness, and create an affidavit based on that interview. She asked the reporters to read the affidavits and emphasized:
We should all be alarmed by this, no matter where you are on the political spectrum.
We’ve heard hundreds of instances of election workers who…verbally accosted our poll watchers and refused to let them challenge questionable ballots. Election workers were wearing Biden T-shirts and applauding when our poll watchers were kicked out.
Of the few ballots that Democrat election workers did allow us to challenge, our observers say those ballots were then moved back into the regular pile after our poll watchers were intimidated and pushed from the process.
McDaniel added that the RNC will not stop until every last issue has been uncovered and that they’ve deployed legal teams in several states.
We do have a whistleblower, which I discussed earlier this week, who was in Detroit as an election worker, not a Republican poll watcher, who, under affidavit, says that they were working on November 4th, and they were told to backdate ballots to November 3rd so they would count…so that has been submitted to the US Attorney in the Eastern District of Michigan.
And there’s more:
If you look at the recent lawsuit…an election employee with the City of Detroit working at a polling location for three weeks prior to the election…directly observed on a daily basis other City of Detroit election workers and empoyees coaching voters to vote for Joe Biden and the Democrat party. This employee witnessed these workers and employees encuraging voters to do straight Democrat ballot and witnessed these election workers and employees going over to the voting booths with voters in order to watch them vote and coach them who to vote for.
During the last two weeks…she was specifically instructed by her supervisors never to ask for a driver’s license or any photo ID when a person was trying to vote.
All absentee ballots that existed were required to be input to the QVF system by 9 PM on November 3rd, 2020. This was required to be done in order to have a final list of absentee voters who returned their ballot prior to 8 PM November 3rd, 2020. In order to have enough time to process the absentee ballots, all polling locations were instructed to collect the absentee ballots…once every hour on November 3rd. On November 4th, 2020, a City of Detroit election worker was instructed to improperly pre-date the absentee ballots received that were not in the QVF.
McDaniel was going on with more things the election worker observed when a “journalist” butted in with, “But is it enough to matter?” Who knows?! What happened to “All votes matter?”
Another “journalist” asked for the name of the “whistleblower,” but McDaniel said it might not be available because the person is a whistleblower and they may be provided protections. DUH. So the “journalist” continued, “But do you have any evidence that shows that illegal votes were cast?” I didn’t quite catch the eyeroll McDaniel must have had, but she patiently replied:
Well, I just – I think I just went through that with you. With somebody backdating when a ballot was received, that’s called illegal.
The lawsuit was published later Monday by Jenna Ellis.
The enormity of what’s happening in media cannot be ignored. If an attorney held a press conference and said she has evidence exonerating her client, the press should NOT cut away and substitute its own judgment, claiming no proof. That’s acting as a party in interest, not press.
