(Jul. 13, 2021) — On Tuesday morning, Donald Trump’s political organization “Save America” spokeswoman Liz Harrington tweeted a video of her Monday-evening appearance on OAN‘s “The Real Story” with host Natalie Harp in which Harrington termed the Biden administration “illegitimate.”
The discussion began with Harp’s monologue during which she recounted a recent statement made by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) pledging to “stop the worst” of the Biden agenda if he were to regain the Majority Leader position after the 2022 midterm elections.
“Just on Thursday, Mitch McConnell said his path back into the majority is simple, saying, ‘If I become the majority leader again, it’s not for stopping everything; it’s for stopping the worst,'” Harp quoted McConnell’s words, which also appeared on a placard in back of her. “‘It’s for stopping things that fundamentally push the country into a direction that at least my party feels is not a good idea for the country.’ But you know what?” Harp continued. “You failed there, Mitch McConnell, as did every other Republican who claims moral supremacy, because you failed to stop the worst. You failed to stop the very thing that is fundamentally destroying our country, really the only thing that matters: Democrats usurping our right to free and safe elections. You know, Democrats like to say, ‘Elections have consequences,’ but so do crimes, and the consequences of the crime of the century are what we’re living through now, and what we still have yet to: record violence, a broken border, inflation, rising gas prices, energy dependence, unemployment, and so much more. So as much as Republicans say they want to stop all this, saying it is futile, because they could have stopped it in November, and as President Trump has said, he would be stopping all this, but they didn’t. They prefer to try to stop him and our movement, standing on the sidelines, and yes, even cheering on the other team…”
Harp concluded her opening by saying that “haters on both sides of the aisle” will soon discover that “nothing’s stopping the movement that will save America.”
Introducing Harrington, Harp said that the “Republican establishment” is “just as bad if not worse than the Democrats,” to which Harrington responded, “What could be worse than allowing American votes to be stolen, to allow an illegitimate person to be sitting in the White House destroying our country? It is the worst thing imaginable, and they did nothing about it, and in fact, they aided the Democrats in stealing the election and rigging it beyond comprehension…”
Harrington then invoked a “letter” Trump said he was given by a former U.S. attorney in Pennsylvania, William M. McSwain, claiming that then-Attorney General William P. Barr instructed him not to investigate claims of election fraud.
“On Election Day and afterwards, our Office received various allegations of voter fraud and election irregularities,” McSwain wrote to Trump in a letter dated July 9, 2021. “As part of my responsibilities as U.S. Attorney, I wanted to be transparent with the public and, of course, investigate fully any allegations. Attorney General Barr, however, instructed me not to make any public statements or put out any press releases regarding possible election irregularities. I was also given a directive to pass along serious allegations to the State Attorney General for investigation — the same State Attorney General who had already declared you could not win.”
Page 2 of the letter informed Trump that McSwain disagreed with Barr’s directive but that as a former Marine officer, he observed the order. Additionally, McSwain wrote, he will seek to run as a Republican for Pennsylvania governor in 2022 to unseat Gov. Tom Wolf (D). “I would be honored to have your support,” McSwain added.
“…Not only did Bill Barr say, ‘Don’t make any statements about this; don’t bring it to the public’s attention, all of this voter fraud in Philadelphia; give it to the Democrat attorney general, who pronounced before the election in Pennsylvania that ‘there’s no way President Trump could win.’ Well, so that biased person was then put in charge of all the real, legitimate allegations, the breaking of law, the stuffing the ballot box, the counting the ballots after the election, the using mail-ins to rig it in favor of Joe Biden — those were unconstitutional moves, violations of our free and fair elections, and they did nothing about it, and in fact, worked with the Democrats to rubber-stamp this fraud.”
Harrington then agreed with Harp that “our movement is not going anywhere; it’s the biggest movement in American history, and in fact, it’s just getting started.”
