Anyone who has followed former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s career and has watched him in the years since knows he’s not prone to BS conspiracies or hyperbole.
A superb analyst and renowned historian, Gingrich — the man who led the GOP takeover of the House in 1994 with his “Contract With America” after Democrats controlled the chamber for four decades — knows the political landscape better than just about anyone else these days.
So when he talks about things like, say, “vote fraud” and other “shenanigans” during the 2020 election cycle, it’s worth listening to because the man knows of what he speaks.
In an interview Sunday with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, Gingrich made it quite clear that stuff happened in his home state of Georgia and elsewhere during the previous election cycle.
And while he did not come right out and say that Donald Trump should still be sitting in the Oval Office today, the implication is clearly there.
“You can actually buy an official Georgia presidential ballot on eBay. And, you can also buy a number of states,” Gingrich said.
“So when they tell you they were controlling the ballots, it’s just not true. This was a very open system. It was a system where people could cheat, and did. And without getting into an argument about how big the cheating was, it was large enough that every American should expect that they have the right to vote, that they have the right to have their vote counted, they have a right to have their vote held legally and accurately, and they shouldn’t have their vote canceled by someone who’s cheating.
“And that’s exactly what’s been going on… In every one of the states that was very close that Trump lost you had those kind of shenanigans and you had state law violated in every single one of those states. In my mind, there was no question that those states were in fact stolen. That doesn’t make the national media happy but I think as a historian people will find it’s absolutely true,” he added.
That is some powerful political mojo coming from a guy who knows.
