The Big Lie

  • The letter proclaimed, without citing any evidence, that there were “a number of anomalies, statistical improbabilities and accusations of fraud that bring the election results in several states into question.”
  • Despite the lack of evidence directly referenced in the letter, the congressmen contended that “more than enough evidence has been presented to warrant the issuing of subpoenas, search warrants and the impounding of ballot materials and election devices for forensic analysis.”
