Donald Trump continues trying to push his phony narrative that he only lost due to “voter fraud” so he can pretend he’s “contesting” the election and continue fundraising from it. He also keeps trying to replace as many people as possible in certain agencies.
The Department of Homeland Security may have just demonstrated why Trump is so eager to try to install his own people in various federal agencies. Per NBC News, DHS just issued this statement: “There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”
Donald Trump has spent today falsely insisting in all caps on Twitter that a voting machine somehow deleted millions of Trump votes. So this DHS statement is a direct and specific repudiation of Donald Trump’s argument that this election was somehow rigged against him. No wonder Trump has become so paranoid of these federal agencies.
