Donald Trump Says Fake Electors Scheme Was ‘Official Act’

Date:

In a stunning revelation, former President Donald Trump has defended his role in a scheme to appoint fake electors in several states, characterizing the moves as an “official act” that was part of his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

The fake electors scheme, which has been investigated by the January 6th Committee, involved a group of Trump supporters who were tasked with certifying the electoral votes of their respective states, even though they did not actually win the presidential election. The move was widely seen as an attempt to undermine the integrity of the democratic process and to undermine the results of the election.

In a recent interview, Trump was asked about his involvement in the scheme and his response was revealing. “I was doing an official act, in my opinion,” he said. “I was doing what I thought was necessary to ensure that the election was fair and that the people’s will was represented.”

When asked to clarify what he meant by “official act,” Trump seemed to suggest that he was referring to his role as the president-elect at the time, and that his actions were in line with the duties and responsibilities of the office. “As president-elect, I had a responsibility to ensure that the election was conducted fairly and transparently,” he said. “And if that meant calling on my supporters to take certain actions, then that’s what I did.”

Trump’s defense of the fake electors scheme has sparked outrage from critics, who see it as an attempt to undermine the integrity of the democratic process. Many have also pointed out that the actions taken by Trump and his supporters were illegal and did not have any basis in law.

“This is just another example of Donald Trump’s attempts to undermine the democratic process and to undermine the will of the people,” said a spokesperson for the January 6th Committee. “The scheme to appoint fake electors was a clear attempt to subvert the will of the voters and to overturn the results of the election. It’s a serious violation of the law and it’s a threat to the very fabric of our democracy.”

Trump’s comments come as the January 6th Committee continues to investigate the events leading up to the January 6th attack on the US Capitol. The committee has subpoenaed several key witnesses, including Trump’s former Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, and his former lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, who played a key role in the fake electors scheme.

The investigation has already uncovered a number of damning details, including evidence of Trump’s involvement in the scheme to appoint fake electors and his efforts to pressure state officials to reverse their certification of the election results. The committee has also uncovered evidence of Trump’s attempts to use intimidation and bullying to undermine the election process, including his characterization of the election as “rigged” and “stolen.”

As the investigation continues, it’s clear that Trump’s defense of the fake electors scheme is just the latest example of his efforts to undermine the democratic process and to undermine the will of the people. The investigation is ongoing, and it’s likely that we will learn more about Trump’s involvement in the scheme as the evidence continues to unfold.
