While some of Fox News’ “news” anchors have strongly rebuffed President Donald Trump’s electoral fraud plots, it appears others are prepared to give them some credibility.
Referring to Trump’s campaign lawyer Sidney Powell’s belied theory that Dominion Voting Systems software transferred “millions of votes” from Trump to President-elect Joe Biden, Fox News presenter Bill Hemmer, said Monday afternoon that Powell’s unproven plot “seemed compelling. “
In an interview with Maria Bartiromo, the Fox Business presenter, who Boosts Trump on Sunday, Powell – who also pushed a conspiracy that the CIA was involved in transferring votes to Biden – claimed she had evidence to back up her claims, but she was only going to ‘tell on national television. “
“We are on the verge of annulling election results in several states and President Trump won not only by hundreds of thousands of votes, but by millions of votes which were displaced by specially designed software. Powell said.
With the Trump campaign’s election lawsuits dismissed or withdrawn from court, Hemmer released a clip of Powell’s interview before noting that Powell did not share anything to support his claims.
“So this is Sidney Powell, she’s the president’s lawyer, claiming to have evidence of electoral fraud and that she ties it to a voting machine company called Dominion,” Hemmer said. “The company denies all accusations of fraud. The Trump team did not share their evidence with the Americans. Fox News saw no evidence. “
Introducing Fox News legal analyst Andrew McCarthy, Hemmer then suggested that despite the lack of evidence, Powell’s theory may still be true.
“I don’t know if we’re in a different situation from last Thursday when we spoke. I saw that interview with Sidney Powell and Maria on Sunday, it looked compelling, ”began the veteran presenter. “And now?”
McCarthy, for his part, said the Trump campaign now had to present evidence if it was to have its allegations of electoral fraud taken seriously.
“You know, at a certain point, Bill, it doesn’t do any good to say, you know, a lot of things are filled with possibilities of fraud,” he noted. “You know, December 8 is the day… is the safe haven provision in federal law where states must certify their electoral votes. If you want to prevent this from happening, now is the time to set up or close. “
McCarthy also pointed out that while Powell has yet to reveal any evidence, Dominion and other parties the Trump team has tried to implicate have all denied the campaign’s claims.
“Now, I have no way of knowing or negotiating this claim that it is true or false, but all I know is that a party that has direct knowledge says it is not true and the other party, which is the president’s team, maintains saying that we are collecting evidence, but they are not putting anything on the table.
Hours after Bartiromo’s interview with Powell on Sunday, Fox News weekend anchor Eric Shawn conducted a thorough verification of the president’s various allegations of electoral fraud, specifically debunking the Dominion software conspiracy while noting that “Such baseless and false claims are an insult to thousands of people. election officials and workers across the country. “
