FEC Chairman Says He Believes ‘There Is Voter Fraud’ in Key States

The chairman of the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) stated that he believes there is evidence of voter fraud and other alleged irregularities.

In a recent interview, FEC Chairman Trey Trainor said reports of fraud in some battleground states are credible “otherwise they would allow the [poll] observers to go in,” referring to reports of some polling areas refusing to allow GOP observers to check on the process on Election Day and the days after.

“When you have claims of, you know, 10,000 people who don’t live in the state of Nevada having voted in Nevada, you have the video … they’re (poll workers) either duplicating a spoiled ballot right there or they’re in the process of just marking a ballot that came in blank for a voter,” Trainor told Newsmax. “That’s a process that needs to be observed by election observers.”

In the interview, he agreed with Trump’s campaign lawsuits, while saying that questionable actions by elections officials in several states could make the election illegitimate.

Trainor, an appointee of President Donald Trump, noted that state laws allow those observers to be there, and “if they’re not,” then it’s an “illegitimate election.”

“Our whole political system is based upon transparency to avoid the appearance of corruption,” he said the interview while alleging that Pennsylvania and other states have not been transparent. “I do believe that there is voter fraud taking place in these places,” he added.

Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, a Democrat who is in charge of the state’s elections, has denied claims there is fraud or irregularities in her state.

“I swear an oath that I am here to represent, to oversee elections—fair, free, safe, secure, and accessible elections,” Boockvar told the Morning Call newspaper.

“I don’t care who is on the ballot. I don’t care who is running against them. I want to make sure every candidate has an opportunity to run and win and make sure that every vote for or against them is counted accurately.” She added: “And I will fight to the end on behalf of any candidate. I don’t care whether I agree with them or I don’t agree with them.”

Joe Gloria, the registrar of Clark County in Nevada, rejected the Trump campaign’s allegations of voter fraud as well as the claim that 10,000 people voted out-of-state in a news conference last week.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS)’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency on Thursday concluded that the Nov. 3 election “was the most secure in American history,” saying that “election officials are reviewing and double checking the entire election process prior to finalizing the result.”

Lin Wood on Why He Signed On to the Trump Team

RUSH: Top attorney Lin Wood — this guy’s a First Amendment lawyer, free speech. This is the guy that defended the Covington kids and got them huge settlement deals from CNN and other news organizations. And he is livid over what he’s seen. First Amendment lawyer.

He says: “They Took a Victory from Donald Trump and They Called it a Lie…This Country is Under Attack.” That’s attorney Lin, L-i-n, Lin Wood, on why he’s joined Trump’s legal team. “He spoke at a rally in Georgia on Saturday about why he joined the Trump team in its fight against Democrats, Big Media and Big Tech lies and attempts to steal the election for Joe Biden.”

Here’s how he began his speech. “I was sitting around Tuesday night watching the election returns, I’ve loved politics all my life, since I first voted in 1972. And I saw what I assumed was going to happen. I saw President Trump building up what I believed was going to be almost an historic landslide victory. Then all the sudden every network, including FOX News, started doing what they do best — they started lying to the American public. And they took a victory from Donald Trump and they called it a lie. They took a defeat from Joe Biden and lied and said he won. And they sent you to bed, turning off the count of the vote so you could wake up the next morning like I did and go ‘What happened?’

“What happened? When I was asked by President Trump to help him in Georgia and perhaps other places around this country, I said ‘yeah’… I said yes because there is a cloud over this country. And if we don’t get it right and we don’t figure out what happened that night, that cloud is going to get darker and darker until it turns into a storm cloud and we’re going to lose our freedom.”

If we cannot have fair and open elections with integrity where people trust the outcome, we have lost our freedom. “So it is time to fight back… This is a constitutional crisis and if we don’t fix it and find out what happened and get it right, we’re going to lose our constitutional rights… 43 years of practicing law I never dreamed the day would come where I would be in the United States of America and there would be censorship. If they take away your right to free speech what are they going to take away next?” And your right to free speech is voting for who you want to vote for. If they can change your vote, if they can cancel your vote out, you do not have free speech or free anything else.

So Lin Wood says: “Let’s find out what happened. This is about truth versus lies… If you don’t think this was planned, enjoy losing your freedom under the Kamala Harris Administration. And she’s not going to be running this country. There are people who are going to be running this country who are rich, they’re globalists, some don’t even live here, a lot of them are involved with foreign countries.” She’s a placeholder. Biden’s a placeholder.

“It’s time to tell the truth and be truthful and face the truth. This country is under attack. This was nothing more than a revolution. They’re trying to take away your rights. They’re trying to take away your Constitution. They’re trying to take away ultimately your freedom. Don’t let them do it. Donald Trump is for the people that’s why the people voted for him… [Trump] he’s troubled because he sees what being done to the people… I’d like to see the Republicans stand up for this President. I’ve watched him for 4 years and he’s been out there fighting for the people and he’s almost always been fighting by himself. … It’s time for us to fight for Donald Trump.”

That’s Lin Wood, well-known First Amendment lawyer, on Saturday in Georgia explaining why he signed on to the Trump team.
