Disinfo: The Democratic Party came to power by falsifying the election results

Summary

The Democratic Party came to power by falsifying the election results, which indicates its intention to violate other laws so as not to be held accountable for what they did.

Disproof

Disinformation about the US in the context of the US presidential election.

In its interim assessment on the conduct of the election, the OSCE finds that the contest was "competitive and well managed" (p. 1), noting that "evidence-deficient claims about election fraud" (ibid.) have been refuted by "election officials at all levels" (p. 3) and "national security agencies" (p. 11).

There were extensive investigations about possible frauds, and most fraud claims turn out to be unfounded. This unprecedented scrutiny led to the conclusion that the November 3rd elections were the most secure election in the history of the United States.

Poland and Lithuania finance Svetlana Tikhanovskaya's political agenda

Polish and Lithuanian services finance and control the political activity of the Belarusian opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the protests in Belarus.

The protests in Belarus erupted after the results of the presidential election in Belarus on 9 August, which are considered fraudulent by a large part of Belarusian society.

Russia investigation was an anti-Trump coup plotted by the Obama administration

We will never learn what happened in Russiagate: how this espionage operation on the Trump campaign took place; how they set up the key Trump people; and how, essentially, a coup was plotted by the Obama team.

Disproof

The claim advances a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative attempting to cast doubt on the legality and integrity of the Special Counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.

We do, in fact, know what happened in what RT calls "Russiagate." The Mueller investigation ascertained that "Russia's two principal interference operations […] violated US criminal law" (p. 9) and were carried out in "sweeping and systematic fashion" (p. 1), noting that 13 Russian nationals implicated in these operations have been charged with "conspiracy to defraud the United States" (p. 174).

There was electoral fraud in the US because the Deep State didn’t want Trump reelected

Already before the election, president Donald Trump warned of the possibility of fraud, especially in postal voting. If everybody thought that the US presidential elections had lost all capacity of surprise with the arrival of an outsider like Trump, the 2020 election proved them wrong and showed that it could be historical, worsened by an electoral fraud allegedly cooked from inside the Deep State, that would despise a reelection for the New York tycoon.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory with no evidence presented to back it.

Allegations of electoral fraud have been dismissed more than 60 times by different US courts and judges, both Republican and Democrats, due to lack of any significant evidence, including the Supreme Court in two occasions. The OSCE Observation Mission has stated that the 2020 Presidential election were “competitive and well managed”. Read more OSCE statements on the American elections here.
