Trump on Explosive Election Audit News: 'The Crime of the Century!'
Trump weighs in on New Hampshire’s Election Audit
Donald Trump released an explosive statement on Monday responding to news that auditors in New Hampshire found that folds in ballots affected Republican candidates in the 2020 presidential election.
“New Hampshire’s Election Audit has revealed that large-scale voting machines appear to count NON-EXISTING VOTES."
"State and local communities are seeking confirmation. It’s probably true, but we’ll soon know,” Trump said.
The audit may have found why initial results were so far at variance from ones that were revealed in a follow-up hand count.
The fact that Democratic state House candidate Kristi St. Laurent was short of 24 votes of winning one of the four seats for grabs in Windham, a town of 10,000, triggered the audit.
When the recount was held, however, she was 420 votes short.
St. Laurent’s total has been overcounted by about 99 votes, while Republicans who finished ahead of her were undercounted in the initial tally.
The voting system used was AccuVote, which was different from other locations like Antrim County and Michigan which used the Dominion Voting Systems.
Trump also blasted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and others on the response to the 2020 presidential election.
“Why aren’t Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Republicans doing anything about what went on in the 2020 Election?” Trump said.
“How can the Democrats be allowed to get away with this?”
Trump also said in the statement:
“It will go down as the Crime of the Century! Other States like Arizona, Georgia (where a Judge just granted a motion to unseal and inspect ballots from the 2020 Election), Michigan, Pennsylvania, and more to follow.”
The audit of Maricopa County’s 2020 presidential election votes is still ongoing.
CNN reported on Friday:
“Meanwhile, in Georgia’s Fulton County, another audit is set to move forward after a judge on Friday green-lit the unsealing of 147,000 mail-in ballots cast there in the 2020 election. It follows three audits, including a hand recount, that Georgia conducted last year.”
Trump said he believes other states will follow suit.
He also mentioned Michigan and Pennsylvania, two battleground states where he sought recounts and legal proceedings.
Trump said in May 6 statement:
“Congratulations to the great Patriots of Windham, New Hampshire, for their incredible fight to seek out the truth on the massive Election Fraud which took place in New Hampshire and the 2020 Presidential Election."
“The spirit for transparency and justice is being displayed all over the Country by media outlets which do not represent Fake News. People are watching in droves as these Patriots work tirelessly to reveal the real facts of the most tainted and corrupt Election in American history. Congratulations Windham—look forward to seeing the results."
