Former President Donald Trump's spokeswoman delivered an ominous warning about the future of democracy in speaking to her boss's claims of a stolen election in 2020.
Liz Harrington, a former Republican National Committee official, told One America News Network there would not be another election without a "fix" to the November contest, which election authorities have defended against Trump's allegations of widespread fraud.
"When all these Republicans and RINOS suddenly start pretending like they cared about election integrity, it's always the next election. Well, what the base is focused on, what the average American is focused on, regardless of your party if you were paying attention during the election, what you were focused on, is we can never allow this to happen again. And we have to fix what happened in 2020 or otherwise there's not going to be a next election," Harrington told host Natalie Harp on Monday.
Harrington said GOP opposition to H.R. 1 and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, voting reform bills backed by Democrats in U.S. Congress, is an "admission" that the 2020 presidential election was rigged, a claim that's been widely disputed by election officials on the federal, state, and local levels, as well as voting technology companies at the center of many of the allegations.
“Really, all this talk now of election integrity and stopping H.R. 1, stopping the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, isn’t that an admission that something was wrong on Nov. 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7? All the aftermath and all the rigging and all the cheating that went on — that is an acknowledgment that the system that the Democrats and their allies in big tech put into place [that] they're trying to make permanent," she said.
“The best poll was Election Day, seeing the turnout and really the best truth because we know these counties like Fulton County in Georgia, Wayne County in Detroit, in Phoenix, Maricopa, in Allegheny, in Philadelphia. We know they’ve been crooked for decades, but the turnout on Election Day made them take it to a whole different level," she added.
Harrington said Republican leaders have been "way too silent for way too long" on the 2020 contest, and she vowed to keep the pressure on.
“We’re not gonna stop getting to the bottom of it," she said.
Trump has not publicly said whether he will run again for the White House in 2024 after losing his reelection bid to President Joe Biden last year. Still, he has taken an active role in helping Republicans in their campaigns for the 2022 midterm elections and opposing those he views as political enemies.
Trump and his allies filed a wave of lawsuits challenging the 2020 results, but they have been widely rejected by courts around the country. They have now turned their attention and hopes to the GOP-led Arizona Senate's controversial audit of the 2020 election in Maricopa County and any others that pop up.
Legal experts have been busy over the past several months pushing back against claims by Trump allies such as My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell and attorney Sidney Powell, saying there is no legal mechanism for a former president to be reinstated.
