Donald Trump isn't the only one promoting the Big Lie. Trump's former economics advisor Peter Navarro is trying to sell it too. Newsweek reports that:
Navarro, one of the first Trump administration staffers to publicly support the former president's baseless voter fraud claims, continued to insist that the 2020 election was stolen from his former boss in an interview on Steve Bannon's War Room podcast.
"I wrote the Navarro reports, I call them that because The Hatch Act, it's done on my own time, showed very clearly as you had said that not only did Trump win, he won in a freakin landslide," he said.
Navarro repeated the claim twice when requested by Bannon. "In a freaking landslide, full stop," he said. "Trump not only won, he won in a freakin landslide."
Others from the Trump Clown Car have joined Navarro for the ride:
Former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and advisor Stephen Miller joined Navarro in publicly promoting the Trump campaign's legal efforts to overturn his election loss, frequently appearing on Fox News to claim that they had evidence to prove widespread voter fraud.
There continues to be no evidence to support their claims:
After the election, the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said there was "no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised."
In December, former U.S. Attorney General William Barr, widely viewed as one of Trump's most loyal Cabinet officials, also said there was "no evidence" to support widespread voter fraud claims.
All this offers further confirmation that owning a doctorate from Harvard does not inoculate you from insanity.
