“I’d be interested to know whether or not my opponent, Me. Hageman, is willing to say here tonight that the election was not stolen. She knows it’s not stolen,” Cheney gesê.
Egter, Cheney said that doing so would cost Hageman Trump’s endorsement. “If she says it wasn’t stolen, he will not support her,” the congresswoman said.
Hageman made several false claims about the 2020 verkiesing, met verwysing na die “2000 Mules” film that peddles conspiracy theories about ballot drop boxes and “Zuckerberg money” — a reference to donations from the charity of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, to help local elections officials navigate the coronavirus pandemic.
“The truth matters
,” Cheney gesê. “And the claims that Ms
. Hageman is making about the
2020 election are the same claims for which the President’s lead lawyer
, Rudy Giuliani, was disbarred
,” het sy bygevoeg, verwys na Giuliani’s suspension from practicing law in New York state by an appellate court that found he made
“demonstrably false and misleading statements
” oor die 2020 verkiesing.
“They are simply not true. It is not true that there was sufficient fraud to change the results of the 2020 verkiesing. The President’s own attorney general has said that, the President’s own deputy attorney general has said that and, ek bedoel, President Trump — President Trump’s campaign manager said that; President Trump’s White House counsel said that; President Trump’s own family said that.”
