    Default Trump pushed bizarre election fraud conspiracy theory involving Italian satellites

    The Trump administration pushed the Attorney General to investigate a bizarre conspiracy theory that Biden used Italian satellites to steal the election
    Thomas Colson Jun 16, 2021, 7:03 AM

    Trump's White House pushed a bizarre election fraud conspiracy theory involving Italian satellites.
    Trump's chief of staff pressed officials to investigate baseless claims of election fraud.
    One Department of Justice official branded the conspiracy theory "pure insanity."

    Donald Trump's administration pushed for an investigation into a bizarre conspiracy theory that President Joe Biden used Italian satellites to steal the 2020 election, emails released by House lawmakers this week revealed.

    The tranche of emails obtained by the House Oversight Committee detail repeated attempts by Trump officials to make the Department of Justice investigate baseless claims of election fraud in an attempt to overturn Biden's election victory a move that leaders of the department ultimately rejected.

    The documents show that Mark Meadows, who was Trump's chief of staff, tried at least five times to pressure Department of Justice officials to investigate various conspiracy theories which suggested the election had been stolen from Trump.

    On December 30, Meadows emailed then-acting United States attorney general Jeffrey Rosen details of an alleged plot by which American electoral data was manipulated in Italian facilities.

    The email was a translation of a document from a person in Italy who claimed to have "direct knowledge" of the plot.

    The person said that US electoral data had been manipulated in Italian facilities in coordination with US intelligence officials from the CIA then loaded onto "military satellites."

    They claimed that the true data revealed that Trump was "clearly" the winner of the election, a position they claimed was confirmed by sources within the Italian secret service.

    On January 1, Meadows again emailed Rosen about the plot, providing a link to a YouTube video that referenced the conspiracy theory. Rosen forwarded the email to then-acting deputy attorney general Richard Donoghue, who replied: "Pure insanity."

    Meadows and Rosen ultimately decided not to investigate the claims of election fraud

    Rep. Carolyn Maloney, chairwoman of the House Oversight Committee, said the documents showed that "President Trump tried to corrupt our nation's chief law enforcement agency in a brazen attempt to overturn an election that he lost.

    "Those who aided or witnessed President Trump's unlawful actions must answer the Committee's questions about this attempted subversion of democracy," she said.
    See the Right Wing Super Patriot:

    Now you know what a Right Wing Super Patriot is:
    Someone who loves his country while hating 90% of the Americans who live in it.

    Italian satellites are deployed only to share glorious opera throughout the world.

    Regardless of how absurd any of it is, Tucker even has the FBI behind January 6th now, it matters little, the task is to just throw it out there, plant the innuendo for the demagogues to echo, have the “regular contributors” extend its life, eventually, some of lemmings will believe it, and when adding all the absurdities together, a grand conspiracy to crucify Trump is born

    Been an ongoing strategy for five years now

    The Right Wing Media is not interested in reporting the truth. They're only interested in reporting what bullshit they can get their viewers to believe.
    They report the bullshit and their viewers decide what bullshit they're willing to believe. Then, the Right Wing Media runs with that bullshit.
    And their viewers have proven they can believe some pretty outrageous bullshit.

    The Right Wing is really in a panic about the Jan 6 Capitol Riot and how it reflects on RepubliQans. Their outrageous conspiracy theories have no limit. They'll keep introducing these crazy conspiracy theories until they find one that their minion followers will swallow. Shouldn't be hard.

    First, it was members of “antifa” or Black Lives Matter demonstrators who infiltrated the pro-Trump mob that breached the Capitol. Now Republican lawmakers have suggested that federal law enforcement, with support from Democratic officials, intentionally provoked an attempted insurrection on 6 January, injuring dozens of law enforcement officers and threatening elected officials.

    But didn't the RepubliQans say that it was a peaceful protest and 'just like a normal tourist day'? If it was peaceful, what was the FBI doing there?
    The RepubliQans can't even get their fucking story straight. They're falling over themselves to try to mitigate the backlash from the Capito Riot.
    And it's pretty fucking embarrassing.

    And no one on the right can even prove that, so what does that say about you?

    I have no interest in proving it as it will likely never happen but just like a "not guilty" verdict doesn't mean innocent, not being able to prove it happened doesn't mean it didn't.

    Rightys believe because they do not know how our election system works. They are not aware of the safeguards. When they say really really stupid things like they stuffed ballot boxes, they show total ignorance. Then Italian satellites? The right is absolutely wrong. The fact that they buy these insane ideas proves they are ignorant of how it all works. They are not knowledgeable enough to know how ashamed they should be.

    Ok well in that case, I can't prove that you're NOT retarded so you'll just have to take my word for it that you are.
