Evidence of voter fraud? Richard Grenell didn't offer any.
However, the gay adviser to President Trump and former acting director of national intelligence made very serious claims of it a Wednesday press conference in front of a Nevada polling center.
There, he was "announcing a federal lawsuit to stop counting illegal ballots in Nevada. Clark County officials must start answering questions as to why. We demand transparency," he summed up on Twitter. At the conference, he claimed that thousands of votes were cast illegally and the polling center lacked proper election observers.
Despite the enormity of his accusations, Grenell refused to answer questions from reporters. "You're here to take in information," he told them. When the unmasked campaigner was chased down by MSNBC reporter Jacob Soboroff, who challenged his assertions -- "Where is the evidence of the fraud?" he asked -- Grenell ducked into a nearby van.
Grenell has emerged as a chief source of misinformation from the Trump campaign -- he recently headlined a Trump Pride event with Lara Trump where she claimed that "dead cats" are voting for Democrats with mail-in ballots. He has also toured with Tiffany Trump in order to chip away LGBTQ+ support of Joe Biden with false claims of the president's allyship.
Nevada is one of the targets of lawsuits from the Trump campaign during a presidential election where these ballots may be the deciding factor.
