Trump: ‘I’m doing the country a big favor’ with my conspiracy theories about voter fraud

Published

on

At Wednesday's White House briefing on coronavirus, President Donald Trump was once again asked about his conspiracy theories about mail-in ballot fraud, in light of his move to sue the state of Nevada to stop an expansion of the practice.

When confronted with his previous lie that Nevada isn't checking signatures, Trump doubled down, saying it would be "physically impossible" to verify the ballots. He then repeated, for the third day in a row, his complaints about the New York primary process — and when a reporter pointed out to him that the delays in ballot reporting isn't evidence of fraud, he replied, "well, you're reading a different newspaper than me." He added that "I'm doing the country a big favor" by talking about these issues.

WATCH: White House official grilled on Trump’s lie that children are ‘almost immune’ to COVID-19

On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows was grilled by anchor Wolf Blitzer over President Donald Trump's lie that children are "almost immune" to coronavirus.

Bill Barr has a ‘tell’ that reveals exactly what he will do to win Trump the election: Former Justice Department spokesperson

Published

on

Former Justice Department lawyer Matt Miller said that Attorney General Bill Barr has a "tell" that Miller thinks reveals what Barr will do about his new attempt at a GOP-run Russia investigation.

The MSNBC panel discussion looked back at Barr's testimony to the House Judiciary Committee, where he admitted that the White House government appointees have discussions about the 2020 campaign during Cabinet Meetings. Conducting politics under the government is strictly prohibited.

"He has a tell, and the one that you just showed is an example, where there's an answer where you expect the attorney general to give," Miller began. "In the confirmation hearing, the answer you expected him to give was that he would recuse himself from the Russia investigation because of his previous writings on the topic, a memo he had written that was seen as the audition for the job. And he didn't give that answer, and I think we found out why shortly after, it was because he wanted to interfere in the Mueller probe. He's wanted to go back and then discredit it afterward."
