Rand Paul Schools ABC Host Over Election Fraud
The MSM refuses to accept that there was anything wrong with this election. Most will not even broach the topic of election fraud unless they have a Liberal panel ready to attack. But ABC's George Stephanopoulos brought on Senator Rand Paul and dared to ask if the presidential election was stolen. Paul was quick to let him know how things are and that he was sick of the MSM pushing their narrative instead of facts.
"Senator Paul, let me begin with a threshold question for you. This election was not stolen, do you accept that fact?
SENATOR RAND PAUL, (R-KY): Well, what I would say is that the debate over whether or not there was fraud should occur, we never had any presentation in court where we actually looked at the evidence. Most of the cases were thrown out for lack of standing, which is a procedural way of not actually hearing the question.
There were several states in which the law was changed by the secretary of state and not the state legislature. To me, those are clearly unconstitutional and I think there’s still a chance that those actually do finally work their way up to the Supreme Court.
Courts traditionally and historically don’t like to hear election questions. But yes. Were there people who voted twice? Were there dead people who voted? Were there illegal aliens who voted? Yes, and we should get to the bottom of it.
I’ll give you an example. In my state, when we had a Democrat secretary of state, she refused, even under federal order, to purge the roles of illegal voters. We got a Republican secretary of state and he purged the rules. It does make a difference and those things do occur."
STEPHANOPOULOS: I have to stop you there. No election is perfect. But there were 86 challenges filed by President Trump and his allies in court, all were dismissed. Every state certified the results after investigations counts and recounts. The Department of Justice led by William Barr said there's no widespread evidence of fraud. Can’t you just say the words, this election was not stolen?
PAUL: Well, what I would suggest is that if we want greater confidence in our elections, and 75 percent of Republicans agree with me, is that we do need to look at election integrity and we need to see if we can restore confidence in the elections.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, 75 percent of Republicans agree with you because they were fed a big lie by President Trump and his supporters to say the election was stolen. Why can't you say President Biden won a legitimate, fair election
PAUL: -- I think where you make a mistake in -- hey, George. George. George, where you make a mistake is that people coming from the liberal side like you, you immediately say everything's a lie instead of saying there are two sides to everything.
Historically what would happen is if said that I thought that there was fraud, you would interview someone else who said there wasn’t. But now you insert yourself in the middle and say that the absolute fact is everything I am saying is a lie."
STEPHANOPOULOS: Hold on a second. He said the election was stolen. This election was not stolen. The results were certified in every single state after counts and recounts.
PAUL: You’re saying -- you’re saying that absolutely it was -- you’re saying there was no fraud and it’s all been investigated and that’s just not true.
STEPHANOPOULOS: I said the Department of Justice found no evidence.
PAUL: Well, let -- no. Let’s talk about the specifics of it.
In Wisconsin, tens of thousands of absentee votes had only the name on them and no address. Historically those were thrown out, this time they weren't. They made special accommodations because they said, oh, it’s a pandemic and people forgot what their address was.
So they changed the law after the fact. That is wrong, that's unconstitutional. And I plan on spending the next two years going around state to state and fixing these problems and I won’t be cowed by liberals in the media who say, there's no evidence here and you're a liar if you talk about election fraud.
No, let's have an open debate. It’s a free country."

Paul destroys Stephanopoulos. The ABC host was likely thinking he would have back-up from Senator Klobuchar but she has technical difficulties and was unable to come to his aid. Paul let Stephanopoulos know that there was fraud and that most of Trump's lawsuits were thrown out without even being heard. You can't say this election was legitimate when the courts refused to even see the evidence and States were accepting ballots that normally be thrown out.
