Trump campaign paid researchers to prove 2020 fraud but kept findings secrethttps://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2023/02/11/trump-campaign-report-electoral-fraud/
Former president Trumps 2020 campaign commissioned an outside research firm in a bid to prove electoral fraud claims but never released the findings because the firm disputed many of his theories and could not offer any proof that he was the rightful winner of the election, according to four people familiar with the matter.
The campaign paid researchers from Berkeley Research Group, the people said, to study 2020 election results in six states, looking for fraud and irregularities to highlight in public and in the courts. Among the areas examined were voter machine malfunctions, instances of dead people voting and any evidence that could help Trump show he won, the people said. None of the findings were presented to the public or in court.
About a dozen people at the firm worked on the report, including econometricians, who use statistics to model and predict outcomes, the people said. The work was carried out in the final weeks of 2020, before the Jan. 6 riot of Trump supporters at the U.S. Capitol.
Trump continues to falsely assert that the 2020 election was stolen despite abundant evidence to the contrary, much of which had been provided to him or was publicly available before the Capitol assault. The Trump campaigns commissioning of its own report to study the then-presidents fraud claims has not been previously reported.
They looked at everything: change of addresses, illegal immigrants, ballot harvesting, people voting twice, machines being tampered with, ballots that were sent to vacant addresses that were returned and voted, said a person familiar with the work who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe private research and meetings. Literally anything you could think of. Voter turnout anomalies, date of birth anomalies, whether dead people voted. If there was anything under the sun that could be thought of, they looked at it.

was stolen. Game. Set. Match.
And what about the fact that he did the stop the steal rallies, the Jan 6th really AND kept fundraising while lying about it being rigged..... After he was told it wasn't stolen? That's big time fraud.
That simply strains credulity.
