Trump: Media Won’t Cover “Greatest Fraud in the History of Our Country”
In his first sit-down interview since the election, President Donald Trump slammed the mainstream media for its refusal to cover the rampant fraud that characterized Biden’s victory. Speaking with Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo, Trump said that media conglomerates were hiding behind their press freedoms to print lies, hide the truth, and keep the American public in the dark about the issues facing our democracy.
“The media doesn’t want to talk about it,” Trump said. “They know how fraudulent this is. It’s no different than Hunter. It’s no different than Hunter. They don’t want to talk about Hunter, so they totally closed it off, big tech and the media, other than The New York Post, as you remember, which took a lot of heat. It was terminated. It was terminated from, I guess, Twitter, maybe Facebook.
“But it’s a situation, the likes of which — we don’t have freedom of the press in this country,” he continued. “We have suppression by the press. They suppress. You can’t have a scandal if nobody reports about it. This is the greatest fraud in the history of our country, from an electoral standpoint. And I guess you could build it up bigger than an electoral stand — what’s bigger from an electoral standpoint? What is bigger than this? This is the essence of our country. This is the whole ball game. And they cheated.”
Bartiromo questioned why the Department of Justice wasn’t getting involved.
“You have laid out some serious charges here. Shouldn’t this be something that the FBI is investigating? Are they? Is the DOJ investigating?” she asked.
“Missing in action, can’t tell you where they are,” Trump said. “I ask, are they looking at it? Everyone says yes, they’re looking at it. Look, where are they with Comey, McCabe, and all of these other people? I said I’ll stay out of it. I wish I didn’t make that statement. There’s no reason, really why I have to, but where are they with Comey, with McCabe, with Brennan, with all these people they lied to Congress, they lied, they leaked, they spied in our campaign.”
Trump then wondered what was happening with the much-ballyhooed investigation being conducted by U.S. Attorney John Durham, a man who was tasked with getting to the bottom of the original Russia probe and its focus on the Trump campaign.
“What happened to Durham? Where’s Durham?” he asked. “So you’re asking a question. These people have been there a long time. I know FBI and FBI is great at the levels that we talked about, but it’s inconceivable. You would think if you’re in the FBI or Department of Justice, this is the biggest thing you could be looking at. Where are they? I’ve not seen anything. I mean, they just keep moving along, and they go on to the next president.”
Trump said he had no doubts about his claims, and he promised that he’ll do whatever it takes to prove that the election was fraudulent.
“I’m going to use 125% of my energy to do it,” he said. “You need a judge that’s willing to hear a case. You need a Supreme Court that’s willing to make a real big decision based on everything. It’s not like you’re going to change my mind. In other words, my mind will not change in six months. There was tremendous cheating here. Boxes were brought in. The mail-in vote is a disaster.
“By the way,” he warned, “if Republicans allow it to happen, you’ll never have another Republican elected in the history of this country at a Senate level or at a presidential level. You’ll never or at the House level. Mail-in voting is a total disaster.”
