DISINFO: Groups in the shadow dictated the outcome of US Presidential Elections


Groups in the shadow, which we have never seen, could not reconcile. They could not stand the fact that Donald Trump, whom they do not like, could have the power for additional four years, and keep in his hands Soros, Gates, the media and other resources.


A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative targetting the 2020 US Presidential Elections.

There is no proof that “groups in the shadow” were trying to create an obstacle against Donald Trump’s coming to the power. In November 2020 election, Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump and was elected President of the United States. Joe Biden became the first presidential candidate to win more than 80 million votes and had 306 electoral votes, while Trump had 232.

As regards the fairness of the elections, OSCE ODIHR stated in its preliminary findings and conclusions that “The 3 November general elections were competitive and well managed despite legal uncertainties and logistical challenges”. Although there were allegations with regard to frauds in the elections by Donald Trump, Attorney General William Barr declared that there is no uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election by the U.S. Justice Department. All these pieces of evidence show that Joe Biden’s defeat over Donald Trump happened through legal means.

Read similar cases regarding US 2020 elections such as "A great majority of American citizens recognise that the 2020 Presidential Elections were corrupt" and "There is massive evidence of electoral fraud in the 2020 US Presidential Elections".
