Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ on Sunday that the House select committee investigating Jan. 6 would show evidence of the former’s direct involvement. President Donald Trump “to get states to nominate alternative voter lists”.
Anchor Dana Bash said, “Your hearing will include evidence about Trump voters in battleground states who submitted bogus electoral college ballots, even though Trump lost those states we’re talking about. We’ve heard from campaign officials before – Trump campaign officials have been involved in this. Do you have any evidence that the former president himself was involved?
Schiff said, “Yes. We will show evidence of the president’s involvement in this scheme. We will also, once again, show evidence of what his own lawyers have come to think of this scheme. And we’ll show brave state officials who stood up and said they wouldn’t go along with this plan to recall lawmakers in session or decertify Joe Biden’s results. The system held because many state and local election officials honored their oath to the Constitution. Many of them are both Republicans and Democrats.
Bash said, “Just to be clear, you said you had evidence that the then president was involved in publishing a fake voters list. Do you have proof that he directed it?
Schiff said, “You know, I don’t want to get ahead of our hearing. We will show in a hearing what the president’s role was in trying to get states to nominate alternative voter lists, how this scheme initially depended on the hope that legislatures would reconvene and bless him, and he continued anyway.
