Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich Responds Perfectly When Pressed Over Claim that 2020 Election Was ‘Stolen’
Posted on 11/11/2020 1:37:19 PM PST by Kaslin
Well, one thing is clear. Youre not going to muzzle Newt Gingrich in how he feels about the 2020 election. He broke out the flamethrower during his media hit last Sunday. And the former Speaker of the House was also able to comment about something that got him muzzled by Fox News hosts back in September when he mentioned George Soros heavily funding Democrats in local races, specifically district attorney races. Thats also a fact; Fox News reported on it.
Gingrich did not hold back at all, stating that this was a corrupt race, adding that Democrats stole five of six states. The legal fight should carry on, and rightfully so. We have allegations of voter fraud that are serious. We have dead people showing up. We have a United States Postal Worker who overheard a scheme to illegally backdate ballots. And no, he did not recant. Thats fake news. There are reports about scores of ballots in Georgia that have been flagged over change of address issues. Theres a lot of funny business going on which is why the Department of Justice is throwing its weight concerning looking into these allegations. Thats not to say this will flip some states, but it could toss some fraudulent ballots, chip away at Bidens lead, and make 2020 a whole new ballgame.
Were still in Hail Mary territory. I mean, fourth and forever at our own 10-yard line, but theres a chance. All we need is around 50,000 Biden ballots to be invalidated in Arizona, Georgia, and Wisconsin for this to become very interesting. It would be a 269-269 Electoral College tie between Trump and Biden, which would lead to a contingent election in the House of Representatives. Votes are cast by state delegation in the House; the GOP leads 26-23 in that regard.
But what about the claims that of this election being stolen, which host Jedidiah Bila pressed Gingrich on to clarify. The former House Speaker had the perfect response, but first, read the core of his remarks on the 2020 race. He led into his commentary by first offering his take on Joe Bidens call for unity (via Real Clear Politics):
NEWT GINGRICH: Well, it's a nice sentiment. First, you go out and the Democrats steal five or six states, and that's what Republicans believe we're watching. We think we have evidence of a lot of it. Then you turn around and you say let's forget four years of Nancy Pelosi, let's forgot four years ago of impeachment, harassment, opposition, hostility, hatred, and now that I've won, why don't we make nice together?
I think he would have to do a lot to convince Republicans that this is anything except a left-wing power grab, financed by people like George Soros, deeply laid in at the local level, and, frankly, I think that it is a corrupt, stolen election. It's very hard for me to understand how we're going to work together without some very, very big steps by Biden. And I have -- I have doubts if the left-wing of his party would tolerate him genuinely trying to work with Republicans.
JEDIDIAH BILA: Yeah, Newt. No, I just want to ask you for clarity, because the accusation of incidents of voter fraud, which do happen in every election, unfortunately, is very different from the accusation of a stolen election. That's very serious. The implication here is that there's enough widespread voter fraud going on that would have changed the outcome of the election. I haven't seen evidence of that to this moment. Is that what you're suggesting has happened here?
GINGRICH: What I'm suggesting is you don't see the evidence because the local officials who are Democrats hide the evidence and then turn to you and say, "Since you have no evidence." So they say, "Oh, we let the poll watchers in the building." That's right. But they kept them far enough away they couldn't see anything. And I think I can show you case after case, it happened magically at almost exactly the same moment on election night that a series of key states quit counting, almost as though they were coordinating what they were doing.
And then it happened a few hours later, about 4 in the morning, that they had huge data dumps of Biden votes. Now, I don't know how -- how do you prove that without really having to get the FBI directly involved? And given the FBI for the last four years, why would you trust them? The entire deep state has tried to destroy Trump for four years. We know it now as a fact. We know that -- how hard they worked to undermine him. And I think if you're a typical Trump supporter, you regard this as an effort by people on the left to do everything they can at every level, including the news media. The news media's 93% anti-Trump.
Right on, Mr. Speaker. Ive been mentally preparing myself for a Biden win. Ive fluctuated. Last week was not good, but these new allegations and affidavits regarding voter fraud are worthy of an investigation. At the very least, there should be a total audit of the votes in the states in question. Until then, the votes are still being counted. And we have to make sure every legal vote is accounted for in this race. In the end, again, Biden could end up on top, but for now, let the legal challenges play out. Keep fighting. And do not give in to the liberal medias nonsense.
Good article but I stopped reading after about 40 words. Do these people get paid by the word?
This remark by talking heads of I haven't seen evidence of that... kills me - as though evidence has to be presented to the networks, who would just spike it, rather than present it in a court of law, which is what is going on as we speak.
Excellent! Newt did great work when he was Speaker of the House in the 90s and then the GOP just dumped him because he was embarrassingly successful.
A very smart man who keeps his eye on the issues and call them as he sees them.
I don’t understand why his wife hasn’t resigned in protest yet, as Vatican ambassador to a heretic antipope.
I thought with the loss of NE-2 it was impossible to have a 269-269 tie.
Perhaps that district could be recounted and overturned, or the State legislature could declare it inconclusive and only send 4 electors instead of 5.
She gets on my nerves.
I guess maybe she feels she can do some good. Bergoglio doesnt like her or her husband and has been very hostile.
JED has turned I to a dumb liberal.
I think we can make nice and heal if we have full audits in every dim state. Virginia. Minnesota. Michigan. California. Nevada. Etc.
Or we could revote and do it with purple ink fingerprints.
the pained looks on the press faces was priceless...
How long did the same people go on about Russia w/o a piece of evidence and still yet to find any but Trump is still guilty.
It's hard to see evidence when you head is stuck ...
Need to audit the whole country. Not just dim states. At the same time clean up the voter rolls. Anyone shown to have voted in more than one location must give a sworn statement under penalty of perjury if they claim all votes were not from them.
Jedediah looks like she’s been sucking lemons.
One of the key elements missing in the left’s discussion of election fraud is the seemingly coordinated efforts made on a national level to affect the vote count. If efforts to manipulate the vote were in one state, that would be bad enough. But the coordinated timing of ballot counting shutting down across multiple states on election night, the statements of election officials guaranteeing Biden’s win before votes were counted (including Biden’s own statements), the middle of the night jumps in vote tallys, etc., also across multiple states, and more, suggests that this is much more than an isolated incident or two. In my opinion, and based on the evidence produced thus far, this is a massive multi-state organized crime enterprise.
Exactly! There wasn't evidence of collusion with Russia, and there wasn't evidence of an abuse of power when Trump was impeached, but that didn't stop the Democrats and the media from trying to get Trump removed from office.
But the facts are here that there is evidence of fraud, found in a matter of days.
Shes on the list!
