RUSH: Folks, there is so much happening here with this election fraud story that it has been a challenge for me -- because I've been somewhat distracted the past week, even longer than that.
It's been a challenge even for me to put all these pieces together. So the first question: What the hell is that Georgia video? It's amazing. Can it be explained away by the left? I don't think they can explain this away. And who are these people in the video? Well, we now know the name of one of the people in the video. This is the suitcase video, this suitcase-underneath-the-table video?
When all the Republican monitors are gone, here come the suitcases with all the ballots, and we now know the name of one of the people engaged in this. This is exactly... This is exactly the kind of evidence that we need, and we need it proton. We are running out of time here. Somebody is going to have to come forward and just claim they are counting stored legal votes or tell us what the con was and who ordered it.
It's gonna have to happen this way.
The smoking gun video. How long have we been told, folks, that the Trump team has no evidence of voter fraud? We've been told this since the first allegation of it was made. Despite the hundreds of sworn affidavits, the hours of sworn testimony before legislatures in Georgia, Nevada, and elsewhere. And how about all of these people testifying?
You know, C-SPAN's had it. All kinds of television networks have had these people, average, ordinary Americans coming forward and explaining -- the witnesses explaining -- what they saw. It has been fantastic to watch, if you're into the civics aspect of this. They have been giving testimony before legislatures in Georgia, Nevada, and elsewhere.
Now we have a smoking gun -- or, rather, smoking suitcases -- and the media and the rest of the Democrats are still out there saying there's no evidence. And I'm not sure surprised. They're trying to run the stall. They're running the clock out. They're in the prevent defense here, folks. They're just gonna let the clock run out. What is it? Ten days from today the electors vote.
That's their timeline right now. The media and the rest of the Democrats are still saying there's no evidence. (interruption) "Do they even know what 'evidence' means?" Yes, of course they know what evidence means; they're lying through their teeth about it. Now here's the thing. In case you haven't heard, during a hearing at the Georgia senate yesterday, Rudy Giuliani, the Trump team played a video that showed at least four cases of ballots pulled out from under a table.
Four cases. Suitcases! These are not small, little attache cases. These are four suitcases, at least. They contained ballots. "They were pulled out from under a table. The ballots were then counted and scanned while there were no partisan poll watchers present, as is required by law." That's written kind of weird. The poll watchers are required to be there -- as required by law -- and they weren't there.
The poll watchers and the media had been told to go home 'cause of a water main break (chuckles) that we now know never happened and they say there's nothing to see here? They say that this is standard operating procedure? A lied-about water-main break to clear the place out? Jackie Pick, an attorney Trump legal team volunteer, said that the unobserved and illegal counting went on from 10:30 p.m. until 1 a.m.
Jackie Pick said the number of ballots counted after the observers left is beyond the margin of victory for Plugs, who chases his dog's tail. In fact, each box consisted of about 6,000 ballots. Four boxes would add up to about 24,000 votes. Biden's margin of victory is fewer than 13,000. You see where this matters. It matters one heck of a lot.
Now, Rudy said in TV interviews later the same thing happened in six other states. So here comes the question or the questions that everybody's asking. Where's the FBI? Where's the DOJ? Georgia Democrats have been caught trying to nullify the votes of over 75 million Americans, and our premier law enforcement agency is nowhere to be found.
I know Bill Barr says no evidence of fraud in an interview with the AP back on Tuesday. He said Tuesday, "The Justice Department's not uncovered evidence of systemic voter fraud that would change the outcome of the election. He said, 'There's a growing tendency to use the criminal justice system as sort of a default fix-all, and when people don't like something, they want the Department of Justice to come in and investigate.'"
Oh, no. You don't get to do that! We just went through four years of the FBI being corrupted and used to spread the essence of a political coup, and now we are told, "We're not gonna allow this monkeying around here with the DOJ. We're not gonna have the DOJ come in and fix every problem." How about when the DOJ's the source of the problem?
Well, the FBI's part of the Department of Justice. How about when the FBI's part of the problem? So you see, folks, the theft of a presidential election? It's not important enough to investigate. However... Ah, it's just extremely frustrating. The Trump legal team, led by Rudy and Jenna Ellis, said, "In response to Barr's comments, 'With all due respect to the attorney general, there hasn't been any semblance of a Department of Justice investigation.
"We have gathered ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states, which they've not examined. We have many witnesses swearing under oath that they saw crimes being committed in connection with voter fraud. As far as we know, not a single one has been interviewed by the DOJ. The Justice Department also hasn't audited any voting machines or used their subpoena power to determine the truth."
Now, that's an interesting point. Now the governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, wants the secretary of state to start auditing signatures now. But don't misunderstand what that is. That's not the signatures on the ballots. I'll have to explain what he's asked for as the program unfolds. We are still at the setting-the-table stage of what's coming on the program today, and let me continue to do that.
Let's talk about Trump and his role in this, because -- as is the case always -- he has to deal with so much pressure. He has to deal with a maze, a labyrinth of pressures that are coming at him from every direction. He has to... For example, he has to reassure his base that he's doing all humanly possible to ensure that votes are counted and fraud is rooted out.
He has to do that. His base is demanding it. He has to do it. He has to reassure his base that he's doing everything he can to ensure that our votes are counted. The fraud seems to be mind-boggling! We've got sudden, nocturnal troves of votes in suitcases. We have missing ballots. We have improper absentee ballots. We have computer questions.
We have violations of state voting law. We have out-of-state voters. We got dead voters. We got voters voting three and four times. We've got the Zuckerberg $350 million con. (That's a separate story on how Facebook has tried to rig the game.) Another point: Time is of the essence here for Trump to do whatever it is he's gonna do. We're running out of time, folks.
We got 10 days until the Electoral College assembles and votes.
State officials will certify -- officially -- the votes and the states will then choose the electors to vote in accordance with their state totals. So in enough of these five disputed states (and those states remain Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Wisconsin, and Georgia) either a judge will have to throw out the vote and order recounts, or the state legislatures are gonna have to step in and pick new electors.
The magic number is 270. That's where Trump has to get. Doesn't matter if it's 271, 275; 270 is the magic number. I think in order to force the issue... Now, remember, I am the guy that said Trump needs to go to Georgia and do rallies for these two senators down there. He needs to do MAGA rallies. He needs to not let go of this. He needs to keep the energy alive.
(interruption) Yes, yes, yes. We'll get into Lin Wood and this business of people shouldn't vote for the two Senate candidates. This is a lot to wade through out there. I mean, there's really a lot to wade through -- and, of course, folks, one of the big challenges... (sigh) You know, I don't want anybody misunderstand me here.
It's getting harder and harder... Can I have the attention of the mainstream media? This is a pull quote. You're gonna love this quote from me. Mainstream media, stop what you're doing. Here comes the pull quote. Ready? Three, two one: "As a conservative, it's getting harder and harder to not look like a kook. (laughing) Just kidding!
But no. All of this stuff that's floating around out there is impossible to keep up with, because there's a lot of it. There are so many theories, and all of them have a trace of validity to them, and the left is doing everything it can to make every one of them appear to be right out of Kookville. So people that believe these things have got to run the risk -- or weather the storm -- of being called a kook because that's how they're trying to quit all this.
They know, for example, mainstream Republicans don't want anything to do with kooks, racism, bigotry, homophobia, whatever. So all they have to do is run around and say, "Every one of these theories that we're hearing to explain voter fraud, it's just Kook City! It's just Kookville." So they're trying to get mainstream media Republicans... They don't have to work very hard on this, by the way.
Mainstream Republicans have a patent on staying silent. I think the campaign to call these people kooks is almost as effective as calling them racists. (interruption) You disagree with that? You look like you... (interruption) You mean the suitcase video? (interruption) They can call it kooky! They can say that there's a legitimate explanation for it and never explain what it is -- or they could just not show the video.
I mean, what do we think they're gonna do? They haven't aired Trump's speech. Trump gave a speech on election fraud. It may be one of his best speeches. They're not covering it. But they're ripping it to shreds. They didn't cover it. They didn't broadcast it. But CNN's in there ripping it to shreds -- and the same thing here with that suitcase video.
If nobody sees it, does it exist? And if they want to go further and claim, "That's just another kook theory from Lin Wood. I don't believe what we're having to put up with," or whoever they want to lay it off on. So this is one of their techniques here is to chalk all of this stuff up to kookism and a bunch of brave people are gonna have to just ignore that.
Now, Trump doesn't care, and he needs to be the guiding light of influence on this. He has shown himself to be fearless no matter what he's accused of, and that's what this is gonna take, and it's gonna take the Republican Party joining this effort. So we've got five disputed states here: Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Wisconsin, Georgia.
A judge is gonna have to throw out the votes and order recounts or the state legislators are gonna have to step in and pick new electors. They need daily press conferences. All next week they need clear graphs, they need charts and graphs up there to show how they cheated. Six out of 10 Americans believe fraud occurred.
We need seven or eight of 10 to get public support. Right now, six out of 10 do. They need a chart that shows seven out of eight of 10 Americans believe they were cheated, believe fraud occurred. That will get public support to remind judges to do the right thing. But they're gonna have to work at this. It isn't just gonna happen, is the point.
