Trump: The ‘Fake News Media’ Does Not Want Pennsylvania Audit
45th president blasts Wall Street Journal and Democrats
President Donald Trump slammed the Wall Street Journal in a letter to the editor, stating, “the election was rigged.”
The letter was in response to the WSJ Editorial Board’s Sunday article, “The Election for Pennsylvania’s High Court,” which supported the Republican nominee for Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court, Judge Kevin Brobson.
The opinion piece stated Joe Biden won 77 percent of Pennsylvania’s mail-in ballots before adding it “didn’t matter because Mr. Biden won the state by 80,555.”
Trump hit back, writing:
“Well, actually, the election was rigged, which you [the WSJ], unfortunately, still haven’t figured out.”
Trump laid out “just a few examples of how determinative the voter fraud in Pennsylvania was,” such as the “120,000 excess voters are not yet accounted for by the Pennsylvania Department of State—far more votes than voters!”
The 45th president then outlined 14 cases of “data integrity problems” found in the Audit the Vote PA, like “305,874 voters were removed from the rolls after the election on Nov. 3rd.”
The letter was posted by Trump’s chief spokeswoman Liz Harrington on Twitter:

Trump also slammed former Attorney General Bill Barr and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
He wrote the former AG “ordered U.S. Attorney Bill McSwain to stand down and not investigate election irregularities.”
Trump then claimed Zuckerberg “poured over $17 million to interfere in the Pennsylvania election.”
“This is why Democrats and the Fake News Media do not want a full forensic audit in Pennsylvania.
"In reality, 80,555 ballots are nothing when there is this much corruption or voter irregularities.”
Meanwhile, the Republican-led Pennsylvania State Senate committee faces hurdles conducting hearings on the 2020 election probe.
Pennsylvania is also facing lawsuits that have "some Democrats quietly worried.”
The WSJ is now under fire for printing the letter.
Philip Bump from the Washington Post claimed the WSJ was “enabling [Trump’s] dangerous misinformation.”
MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan tweeted:
“What an embarrassment… anti-democratic trash,” while then directing readers to Trump’s op-ed with a link.
