McEnany also made the completely incorrect claim that there was no orderly transfer of power from Barack Obama’s administration to the then president, Donald Trump’s future government.
To get his point across, McEnany tried to argue the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election – a probe that later went into the Mueller investigation ̵
Voting by mailing
McEnany again spread the baseless idea that mail-in polls are susceptible to widespread fraud and suggested “there are real issues” over large-scale mail-in polls.
Facts first: Election experts have repeatedly told CNN that mail-in ballot papers are a safe form of voting and are not the subject of widespread fraud. There have been no reports from either of the two officials from the individual parties of widespread voter fraud by mail-in poll.
On November 12, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency issued a statement calling this year’s election “the safest in American history.”
Deaths due to coronavirus
McEnany also claimed that the initial projections put the number of potential Covid-19 deaths in the United States at two million, adding “we are well below the 2 million that this could have been.”
Facts first: This is misleading.
In other words, it would be the loss of human life if nothing was done at all to alleviate the virus.
The report did not analyze what would happen if only the federal government did not take any action against the virus, but what would happen if there were absolutely no “control measures or spontaneous changes in individual behavior.”
McEnany claimed that the investigation led by Mueller “acquitted President Trump.”
Facts first: This is false.
