A longtime GOP election lawyer destroyed President Donald Trump’s claim that widespread voter fraud is the only way he would lose the election in November to Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
Ben Ginsburg has spent decades looking for proof of widespread election fraud, but has never found it.
Yet, Trump has repeatedly claimed that voter fraud is a liberal conspiracy to boot Republicans out of their rightful place in power. He’s been making this claim for years now, especially since learning that he lost the popular vote in 2016 by nearly 3 million votes.
Even then, his own voter fraud commission could not find evidence of voter fraud and it was disbanded.
Now Trump is at it again, but this time he is taking aim at mail-in votes. But, again, the problem is that no such voter fraud exists except for a couple of individual cases that are quickly caught and have no bearing on the final result.
“I’ve been looking for 38 years on Election Days, along with literal legions of other Republican lawyers and political operatives, for elections that are rigged in fraud,” Ginsburg told Morning Joe on Wednesday. “It is true that there is an occasional election where you can prove fraud. Those are caught.”
Ginsburg also strongly rebuked Trump for questioning the legitimacy of our elections.
“But elections and the credibility of the results of the elections is a fundamental bedrock of our democracy and to say overall that elections are rigged and fraudulent and the only way I can win is if there’s cheating going on, is just not borne out by 38 years of looking for those incidents, and it’s time for the Republican Party to basically deal with that reality in what they do,” he continued.
“There is no demonstrable proof of rigged or fraudulent elections or even really anything to be able to rise to the level of the rhetoric of rigged and fraudulent elections in the vast majority of states,” Ginsburg concluded.

Trump is so desperate to hold onto power that he will say anything to convince his supporters that he did not lose it legitimately. He is trying to create an excuse to refuse to leave office when the time comes to swear in Biden as the next president. That’s why he is crying voter fraud and doing everything he can to suppress the vote ahead of Election Day. Because losing means he can finally be prosecuted for his crimes and America can move past this nightmare of an administration.
