Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Trump Cites Debunked Conspiracy that Dominion Changed Votes”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

After an hour-long Twitter frenzy of tweets and retweets that were critical of his once-beloved Fox News, the commander in chief pivoted to an all caps promotion of a debunked conspiracy theory promoted by OANN White House reporter Chanel Rion.

Trump cited a report that a company called Dominion, the maker of voting machines used across the country in the November 3rd general election, “deleted 2.7 million trump votes nationwide,” before listing specific votes switched by state.

“REPORT: DOMINION DELETED 2.7 MILLION TRUMP VOTES NATIONWIDE. DATA ANALYSIS FINDS 221,000 PENNSYLVANIA VOTES SWITCHED FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP TO BIDEN. 941,000 TRUMP VOTES DELETED. STATES USING DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS SWITCHED 435,000 VOTES FROM TRUMP TO BIDEN.” @ChanelRion @OANN

There are a number of unverified, baseless, and largely debunked conspiracy theories that are being promoted in the more unhinged parts of Trump’s base of supporters. President Trump appears to find great comfort in that space, perhaps because it keeps him from admitting that he lost an election to President-elect Joe Biden, whom Trump has derided as the worst presidential candidate in history.

The Dominion voting machine conspiracy is base on what is claimed to be a last-minute “patch” or computer software update that happened on the eve of the election. These voting machines were used in counties in Georgia, Michigan, and, yes, Pennsylvania, but as of yet, there is no evidence from a reliable news source that gives any indication of validity.
