Fox News anchors like Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Neil Cavuto are more than willing to admit that Joe Biden won the election. The network’s personalities, like Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro and Sean Hannity are still telling viewers that the race could be overturned.
But no Fox personality, however, has been pushing conspiracy theories harder than Maria Bartiromo. Trump has rewarded her faith by interviewing with her multiple times since the election. And her theorizing continued on Monday morning when she said that an intel source told her Trump actually won the election.
The Fox Business host was joined by Alan Dershowitz, a pro=-Trump lawyer. She began, “Challenging election results, as we await today’s Electoral College decision, an intel source telling me that President Trump did in fact win the election.”
“Following that rejection of the Texas lawsuit, the president still maintains that the race is not over. And I spoke with one source high up in the intel community, and he said this, Alan, he said, ‘Trump did win. There was election fraud, but to prove it requires the FBI and the DOJ to drill down on all of the election fraud issues related to voter and ballot issues. They’re not doing it because the wrong people run the place, and they didn’t want Trump to win. Now they’ve run out the clock with the Electoral College here.”
