Donald Trump’s chief of staff has called for an investigation into a strange myth about election fraud

There are plenty of fictional stories about alleged fraud in the 2020 US election – but this alternative seems odd enough. It goes like this: according to supporters of the “Italygate” conspiracy legend, voting machines were located in United States of America Influenced by Italian military satellites. This alleged manipulation led to a victory Joe Biden against Donald Trump Contributed.

As it is now known, this legend also had its supporters in the White House. At the very least, the emails show that President Trump’s chief of staff contacted Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen about the matter. According to “New York Times” reports, Mark Meadows sent a total of five emails to Rosen in December 2020 and January 2021. In one of those emails, he asked the attorney general to open an investigation into the Italygate case.

Investigations would have brought legitimacy

With such a formal investigation, the Department of Justice would have given the conspiracy tale some legitimacy. To support his demand, Meadows sent a link to a YouTube video in which a former CIA employee commented on “Italiegate.”

Meadows did not succeed: Minister Rosen refused to open an investigation into Italygate or any of the other conspiracy myths. The incident is further evidence of Trump’s efforts to misuse the Department of Justice for his own purposes. Because he faced resistance from Rosen, he apparently considered appointing one of his supporters to be attorney general in the final days of his presidency.

Attorney Jeffrey Clark, according to a report in the New York Times in January, would have Trump illegally to win the election. Georgia must help.
