Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Sunday refused to say the election wasn’t stolen, giving cover to former President Donald Trump’s lies about voter fraud that inspired the deadly insurrectionist attack on the Capitol earlier this month.
Paul, who voted to certify the electoral votes on Jan. 6, suggested during an appearance on ABC News’ “This Week” that there may have been rampant voter fraud and ballot-counting issues.
The Justice Department, led at the time by Trump pick William Barr, and election officials nationwide have said there’s no evidence of widespread fraud or misconduct that would overturn President Joe Biden’s win.
“This election was not stolen,” host George Stephanopoulos told Paul. “Do you accept that fact?”
Paul, failing to answer directly, responded that there should be a debate over whether there was any fraud.
Pressed repeatedly by @GStephanopoulos, Sen. Rand Paul won’t say the 2020 election wasn’t stolen, calls for investigation of fraud, but doesn’t provide evidence.— This Week (@ThisWeekABC) January 24, 2021

“This election was not stolen … there were no type of irregularities that would have changed the result in one state,” Chris Christie says, adding that Republicans making the claim are trying to score "political points” with people Trump “lied to.” https://t.co/oQYlmOfsHG pic.twitter.com/HcW8pihN1k— ABC News (@ABC) January 24, 2021
