Jenna Ellis Spreads Debunked “Suitcases” Claim On Fox

Mediaite reports:

Jenna Ellis visited Fox Business to push a voter fraud conspiracy which has already been rejected by Republican election officials. Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo brought Ellis in, on Friday morning, with a video showing Georgia election workers moving suitcases from underneath a table. “You see individuals going to this table, and underneath the table there are suitcases, apparently those suitcases are full of ballots,” Bartiromo said.

“Absolutely shocking, Maria,” Ellis said. “What happened is that at about 10:30 at night in that voting center location, the election officials told everyone to just go home, stop counting. And then four people remained behind. And you can see from the video that they reached under a table, and took out four big boxes of ballots and kept scanning them through, through the night.”

From the fact-checking site Lead Stories:

Two high-level officials with the Georgia secretary of state’s office and a state elections board monitor each told Lead Stories that their investigations revealed nothing suspicious in the video.

The officials said the ballots seen in the video were in regular ballot containers — not suitcases — and they had been removed from their envelopes and processed while news media and election observers for the Republican Party and Trump campaign were present.

The media and party observers were never told to leave because counting was over for the night, but they apparently followed workers who left once their job of opening envelopes was completed, the chief investigator for the secretary of state told Lead Stories.

The last clip below was just posted to Trump’s channel.
