Explosive testimony at a Senate hearing on the 2020 election Wednesday will make you wonder if Joe Biden really did win the state of Nevada by some 33,600 votes. An attorney for Donald Trump repeated a disputed claim Wednesday that there were four times more fraudulent votes than Biden’s margin of victory.
Nevada certified its vote for Joe Biden on November 23rd and the Electoral College has elected Joe Biden the winner of the election, but the count has been in dispute since Election Day and beyond.
In testimony before the U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee, Trump attorney Jesse Binnall claimed that his statisticians, using open source information and databases, determined that 130,000 votes cast in the November 3rd election were fraudulent—nearly four times Biden’s win margin.
A judge threw out his lawsuit on behalf of President Trump alleging the fraud, as The Nevada Independent reported.
[The judge] summarily dismissed its claims of voter fraud and request for an overturn of election results in a ruling on Friday, writing that the campaign’s evidence provided “little to no value” based on questionable or “unsound” methodology, adding that the evidence failed to show any “credible or reliable evidence that the 2020 General Election in Nevada was affected by fraud.”
The Trump campaign nonetheless appealed the decision to the state Supreme Court on Monday, saying in filings that the court failed to take into account “expert” testimony provided by the campaign and applied a higher evidentiary standard than required to prove sufficient voter fraud had occurred.
However, ABC News reported that Senator Rand Paul said that the judges “didn’t rule on whether there was fraud, as many cases were dismissed on procedural grounds before they were argued on the merits.”
“The courts have not said there isn’t fraud,” Paul said. “The courts simply didn’t rule on or hear from the fraud.”
Lawyers argued that oversight of the election continues to be necessary. Jim Troupis, who filed a suit for the Trump campaign in Wisconsin, followed Paul’s logic.
“If you don’t do this inquiry, there really isn’t going to be any analysis and there isn’t going to be an opportunity to get to the very integrity we all want,” Troupis said. “No one suggested at any point in the process that the allegations in Wisconsin are anything but serious and substantive,” Troupis said.
Binnall testified that Nevada’s election chaos began in August when lawmakers passed AB 4, the universal vote-by-mail measure that increased mail-in voting tenfold.
On August 3, 2020, after a rushed special session, Nevada legislators made drastic changes to the state’s election law by adopting a bill known as AB 4. The vulnerabilities of this statute were obvious: it provided for universal mail voting without sufficient safeguards to authenticate voters or ensure the fundamental requirement that only one ballot was sent to each legally qualified voter. This was aggravated by election officials’ failure to clean known deficiencies in their voter rolls. Because of AB 4, the number of mail ballots rocketed from about 70,000 in 2016 to over 690,000 this year.
The election was inevitably riddled with fraud and our hotline never stopped ringing. While the media and the Democrats accused us of making it all up, our team began chasing down every lead. Our evidence came both from data scientists and brave whistleblowers.
We know how easily the mail-in balloting system is gamed. It’s a ripe target for voter fraud as a study by former President Jimmy Carter and James Baker concluded in 2005.
“Citizens who vote at home, at nursing homes, at the workplace, or in church are more susceptible to pressure, overt and subtle, or to intimidation. Vote buying schemes are far more difficult to detect when citizens vote by mail.”
The Carter Center claimed in 2020 that some things could be done to help secure the mail-in vote, but said that even in COVID times people should have the option to vote in person and that states should use stringent security measures. Mass mailing of ballots, which Nevada did with no ballot request, was not on the list of security measures.
Binnall said that their data study, along with “brave whistleblower” testimony, revealed that there were at least 130,000 unique fraudulent votes. Here’s the breakdown of the ones they could verify and have been provided to the public.
- 42,000 people voted more than once
- 1,500 dead voters cast ballots
- 19,000 non-Nevada residents voted (number doesn’t include students and military)
- 8,000 people voted using non-existent addresses
- 15,000 votes were cast from commercial addresses or vacant houses
- 4,000 ineligible foreign nationals voted
Binnall said 130,000 is probably a low number.
[T]he actual number is almost certainly higher. Our data scientists made these calculations not by estimations or statistical sampling, but by analyzing and comparing the list of actual voters with other lists, most of which are publicly available. To put it simply, they explained their methods so that others could check their work.
The Trump attorney said that so far no one else has even tried to double-check their findings.
After the election, Binnall announced that Trump had won.
“Donald Trump won … after you account for the fraud and irregularities that occurred,” campaign attorney Jesse Binnall told reporters as he announced a new lawsuit asking a state judge to declare Trump the winner or to invalidate the presidential vote results.
Also testifying at the hearing Wednesday was the former head of Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security who was fired by President Trump. He said it was time to put fears of voter fraud aside. Politico reported that Chris Krebs was the only witness called by the Democrats and he used the occasion to toss water on the idea of voter insecurity and fraud.
“Some people just don’t want to hear how these systems actually work and what’s actually capable across these systems,” Krebs said, emphasizing that paper receipts that accompany election systems in nearly every state in the country help minimize the prospect of fraud.
Krebs also described a worsening climate of threats against elections workers, fueled by the false fraud claims, that he worried would have a “chilling effect” in future cycles.
Binnall maintains his assertion of enough voter fraud to cost Trump the Nevada election. “Our evidence has never been refuted, only ignored,” he said.
This week’s testimony on Capitol Hill may give Binnall’s study the attention and scrutiny he believes it deserves.

Rand Paul: Voter fraud 'happened' and election was in 'many ways stolen'
By Andrew Mark Miller, Social Media Producer | Washington Examiner
“The fraud happened,” the Kentucky Republican said during a Wednesday Senate hearing on election security. “The election in many ways was stolen, and the only way it'll be fixed is by in the future reinforcing the laws."
“We can’t just say, 'It didn’t happen,'” Paul said about fraud allegations across the country. “We can’t just say, 'Oh, 4,000 people voted in Nevada that were noncitizens, and we’re just going to ignore it.'”
.@RandPaul: "The fraud happened. The election in many ways was stolen and the only way it will be fixed is by in the future reinforcing the laws."
President Trump and Republicans nationwide have taken legal action in several states amid accusations of widespread voter fraud, which the president and many of his supporters believe changed the outcome of the race.
Republicans have provided examples of irregularities in key swing states, including Michigan, Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Nevada, and 17 states filed a suit challenging the election results, which the Supreme Court declined to take up.
In Wednesday's hearing, attorney Jesse Binnall testified that Nevada's election was "inevitably riddled with fraud," pointing out tens of thousands of votes he said should not have been counted.
"The [Nevada] election was inevitably riddled with fraud." Attorney @jbinnall alleges:
•Over 42,000 people voted more than once.
•At least 1,500 dead people are recorded as voting
•More than 19,000 people voted even though they didn’t live in Nevada
Trump has consistently stated that he believes the 2020 election was stolen and said Wednesday that it is "too soon to give up" on his legal challenges.
Rep. Mo Brooks vows ‘I will not surrender’ election fraud fight
By Paul Bedard, Washington Secrets Columnist |Washington Examiner
The leader of a House bid to challenge the Electoral College election of Joe Biden said that he is “cautiously optimistic” of winning the needed support in the Senate to fight on despite Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s urging to have President Trump step aside.
Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks said he expects the support of at least one senator when he moves next month to challenge the electoral votes of several states in which the Trump campaign has claimed election fraud. Without a Senate ally, the effort fails.
“I'm cautiously optimistic that there will be one or more United States senators who will fight to reject voter fraud and election theft,” he said in an interview.
Sens. Rand Paul and Kelly Loeffler are rumored to be considering a vote to reject some state electoral tallies. In a Senate hearing today, Paul said "fraud happened."
A republic is nothing without honest & accurate elections. Heroic patriots fought & died to give America a republic. Media reports Senate ducks election fraud theft ...because it requires a “terrible vote”??!! I can only hope that is “Fake News”.
Several polls show broad GOP voter support for Trump's fight.Brooks has used the media and social media to urge voters to press their senators to challenge ballot fraud. And he hopes voters consider it a do-or-die issue in the next election of their senators.
“Ultimately, whether a senator acts on behalf of our country will be determined by whether that senator’s employers, the American people, have made it known to the senators that this is a litmus test issue. Either you fight for America, or voters never vote for them again and fight against them,” said Brooks.
While the process is a bit unclear, in the end, the House votes either to accept the Electoral College election of a president or the House votes. The Senate does the same for vice president.
The pressure from political leaders to move on is stiff, but Republican Brooks is not backing down.
“I have a choice. I can either fight for my country and an honest and accurate election system that underpins our republic or I can surrender. I will not surrender on an issue of this magnitude. Voter fraud and election theft must be stopped. And on Jan. 6, Congress faces a choice. We can either vote to reject voter fraud and election theft or by our silence, or vote, ratify voter fraud and election theft. I choose to fight,” Brooks told Secrets.
Brooks said there were historic levels of fraud in several states, and he believes that if those votes are tossed, Trump would be the winner. But Washington appears ready to move on, accept the Electoral College vote and Trump court defeats, and welcome the Jan. 20 inauguration of Biden.
Brooks said that he has not appealed to other Republican members to join his cause, but they are. And he said that in the face of criticism, giving in is not an option.
“My path is simple. I can either fight or surrender. When you surrender, you're guaranteed to lose. As long as you fight, you have a chance of prevailing,” he said.
Americans Can Save The American Election System.

Trump's lead attorney investigating voter fraud in Wisconsin, James Troupis, testified that the frustration his team faced was that the courts not only refused to hear the evidence but were following the Biden campaign directive that election fraud, as a subject, was not be discussed.
Nevertheless, the former judge stated that his team found 200 thousand invalid votes that were inappropriately counted. Currently, Biden leads Trump by 20 thousand votes in Wisconsin.
Trump lawyer for Nevada's election-fraud investigation, Jesse Binnall, testified that through a detailed examination of voting records his team found 42 thousand people who voted more than once, 19 thousand people who voted who did not live in Nevada, 8 thousand people who voted not having an existing address and 4 thousand non-citizens that voted. The lead counsel stated that the investigation team uncovered over 130 thousand instances of clear voter fraud. Currently, Biden leads Trump by 12 thousand votes in Nevada.
Democrat ranking member senator Gary Peters told the committee that hearing the witnesses' testimony was a "Destructive exercise that has no place in the U.S. Senate." Along with stating that he has seen no evidence of voter fraud, he said that the entire matter was a source of Russian disinformation.
Listening to the comments of Senator Peters as well as other Democrat committee members, one inescapable fact must be seared into the minds of all Americans. And that is that Democrats and leftists are incapable of seeing the evidence of voter fraud pertaining to the 2020 Presidential election. That statement is worth repeating. So again, Democrats and leftists are incapable of seeing the evidence of voter fraud pertaining to the 2020 Presidential election.
Does that mean the evidence isn't clear enough? NO. Does that mean there isn't enough evidence to overturn the election? NO!
The above statement proposes that because of the deep hatred for Trump and his "America first" policies, Democrats and leftists have become psychologically blinded to all presented evidence. In their minds, it can not and will not exist.
It explains why after hundreds of presented affidavits, sworn public testimony by average American citizens, and telling video footage, Democrats continually repeat that no evidence exists.
It is the equivalent of standing beside the destroyed USS Arizona and saying that no evidence exists that the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor or watching the thick black smoke from ground zero and concluding that there is no proof that America was attacked on 9/11.
How can the truth ever be known to people like this? It can't. And that's the point. The Democrat party is overflowing with people with the same inability to examine the truth as Senator Peters.
Like it or not, this is today's reality, and in such an actuality, there is no way to have the evidence presented in any liberal court. The propaganda "media" will not allow the evidence to be shown to the American people. Big tech will use every means necessary to censor all discussions regarding proof of the stolen election.
The left has already determined that the truth regarding the election no longer matters. Democrat Politicians who in the past, at least cared about the optics, if not about the facts, don't even care about that anymore.
Democrats and their propaganda networks have taken the position that whatever it took to get President Trump out of office was justified. Pelosi and Schumer might just as well face their propaganda friendly cameras and tell the American people that the election was stolen for the good of the country. If such a statement was made, would Biden concede the election to Trump? The answer is obvious - Hell no.
So, what can be done? Conservative Republicans and many independents are playing an unwinnable game with one-sided rules drastically favoring Democrats. The time has come to stop playing a losing game. Stop trying to convince the inconvincible or persuade the unpersuadable. Freedom-loving Americans must disengage from participating in social media platforms that believe in censorings, such as Twitter and Youtube.
The focus should be on peacefully obstructing any further progress toward a transference of power. President Trump should not concede the election because it was stolen and is not, and can never be valid.
The American people who voted for Trump should disagree with a fraudulent election and should not acknowledge a phony product born from that theft. Those who fear that by fighting back, the country will become divided are missing the point that the country is already divided. Those who fear that the Republic will not survive millions of Americans disregarding the Democrats version of the 2020 election fail to understand that the Republic will not survive the forced acceptance of a stolen election.
The way back to sanity is by Conservative Republicans and independents uniting and embracing the truth. Like a schoolyard bully, Democrats and their propaganda wing are trying to force Americans not to give up their lunch money but to give up their vote. That's too high a price, and it is a demand that must be immediately confronted and pushed back on.
