Mo Brooks discharges after Fox News host says there is no evidence of vote fraud in 2020

Republican Congressman Mo Brooks was sent into a conniption by a Fox News host who accurately maintained that there was no evidence that the 2020 election had been stolen from Donald Trump.

When he appeared on “Fox News Sunday,” Mr. Brooks was interviewed by Sandra Smith, who asked the congressman what Mr. Trump had asked him to do after the 2020 election, and why he thought the ex-president was putting him in his shoes. current senate had rejected. campaign.

Mr Brooks replied that between September last year and the endorsement approval, he and Mr Trump had many conversations centered around the idea that the ex-president could be reinstated and the 2020 election being rescinded.

“And I can see that he wants to do that, okay?” said Mr Brooks. “He was robbed in my opinion in 2020, in his judgment he was robbed, so I can understand that wish. The conflict was when I would explain that the law doesn’t allow us to.”

As Mr Brooks put it, “What is being done now in 2020 is irreversible under the US Constitution and the US Code, and I am one of those who believe in law and order. I may not like that that is the endgame.” but that’s the endgame.”

However, Mr. Brooks lost his grip on this pragmatic stance when Ms. Smith pointed out that Mr. Trump’s claims of mass electoral fraud in 2020 have never been substantiated with credible evidence.

“Oh no, that’s wrong!” shouted the congressman, throwing his hands in the air. “I don’t know why you people in the media keep saying that, but that’s absolutely not true.”

Fox News faces a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems, which accuses the network of falsely claiming it rigged the election. There will be a trial next April.

Citing the number of congressmen and senators who voted against the certification of the January 6 election, even after the Capitol was violently attacked by a horde of Trump supporters, Mr. Brooks remarked to Ms. Smith that “you haven’t done your homework.” done”.

Pointing out that dozens of US election fraud lawsuits were being thrown out of court for their lack of evidence, Mr Brooks demanded a “time out” and urged to “have the final say on this”.

“The courts are not the ultimate arbiter of who wins a federal election contest,” he said. “Congress is.” He then quoted the opinions of several judges as evidence for his arguments, along with the film 2000 mulesa “documentary” claiming cell phone records reveal the existence of a massive fraudulent operation to “trade” illegitimate Biden mail-in votes to turn in boxes.

The film has been promoted by Mr. Trump himself and several others, but has also been flatly debunked.

Mr. Brooks recently came in second in the Alabama Senate primary, despite losing Mr. Trump’s support, though on Jan. 6 he continued to use unqualified quotes and photos of him of Trump on campaign mailings sent during were posted on election day.

While announcing his endorsement, Mr Trump quoted Mr Brooks’ comments at a rally where he told supporters to stop obsessed with the last election and focus on the next game.

“Some people are despondent about voter fraud and election theft in 2020,” he said at the event last year. “People, put that behind you, put that behind you.”

However, Mr Trump’s decision to withdraw his endorsement had more to do with Mr Brooks’s steady slippage in the polls at the time, raising the prospect that he could embarrass the former president — who has since seen several of his top supporters fall seriously short in top-level racing in Georgia and elsewhere.

Mr Brooks’ second round against Katie Britt, who finished best in the first round, will take place on June 21.
