Fox News anchor Eric Shawn has, for the second time in days, refuted President Donald Trump’s allegations of election fraud.
As some Fox News presenters are helping the president amplify allegations of election fraud, Shawn is among the members of the network who oppose the baseless allegations.
Shawn responded on Sunday to statements Trump made just a few hours earlier in an interview with Maria Bartiromo on the network. Shawn continued to tell the audience American News Center that many GOP officials and other experts said the president’s allegations of a falsified vote were “false and unfounded”.
On Wednesday, Shawn returned to the subject with the subtitle “Investigating Trump’s Electoral Fraud Claims” on the day Trump gave a 46-minute video speech and allegations of repeated corruption, machine manipulation and mysterious votes appeared.
During the mediated fact-finding and citing election officials, Shawn rejected Trump and his allies’ claims that a “huge vote count” had increased the number of elected president, Joe Biden.
“Election officials say they don’t mean that,” Shawn Martha told MacCallum presenter. “They say there is no vile big item for Biden, only the votes they insist on are properly counted as required by law.”
He said the increase in votes took place on the Pennsylvania battlefield. This was raised at an impromptu hearing in Gettysburg on November 25, held by attorney Rudy Giuliani Trump.
But Shawn said election officials told him that the peaks were due to the number of votes cast on the computers and that it was customary to report a large number of votes shortly.
“Describing the fraudulent vote as evidence showed either a woeful ignorance of the fundamentals of the election administration or a deliberately false claim to mislead the public,” Pennsylvania secretary Kathy Boockvar said of the office.
He said none of the country’s thousands of officials and election workers “reported huge fraud or anything like that with these spikes.”
McCallum also raised allegations by truck driver Jesse Morgan on Fox News Hannity who said he led hundreds of thousands of ballots from New York to Pennsylvania on October 21st.
But citing election officials, Shawn said the completed ballot papers were executed between state lines and disappeared “simply can’t happen.”
“They say that every vote corresponds to one voter and are double-checked and confirmed. They say it is simply not possible to simply sign hundreds of thousands of fake ballots or sign the ballots into the system in some way,” he said. Newsweek contacted Trump’s campaign for comment.
