DISINFO: US Democrats will kill witnesses to cover up election fraud and other crimes


US courts refused to review the merits of Trump’s cases on electoral fraud, despite very obvious falsifications in at least four states. Later on the Capitol unrest, organised by the Democratic Party, suspended the discussion about electoral fraud in the US parliament. We can expect many other crimes by the US Democrats to follow, with the aim to cover up the already committed ones.

Violent riots under the motto “White lives matter” and extrajudicial killings of witnesses are to follow. The Democrats are well experienced in such things, and many strange deaths of people who attempted to investigate the Clintons’ crimes proves this. The new US administration will do its best to interfere into Belarus’s and Russia’s affairs in order to divert public attention from domestic issues.


This publication promotes aims to discredit the US Democrats and the US political system overall and contains recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about alleged Western aggressiveness towards Belarus and Russia. It falsely claims that massive electoral manipulations allegedly were covered up by the US Democrats and judicial branch of power, and promotes groundless claims about Democrats-organised Capital unrest as well as about suspicious circumstances behind the deaths of people who allegedly investigated the Clintons' crimes.

President-elect Joe Biden, who was a candidate of the Democratic Party, won the popular vote by 7 million votes. Although the Trump campaign filed 62 election lawsuits to overturn the result, 61 of them have been dismissed. The OSCE Observation Mission stated that the 2020 Presidential election vote was “competitive and well managed”. Read more OSCE statements on the American elections here.

On 6 January 2021, during a debate in the Senate, a number of Trump supporters broke through security perimeters and violently entered the Capitol, the seat of the US parliament, the Congress. The aim of the protesters was to impede the process of formally installing Joe Biden as the President of the United States, despite Biden winning the November election. An overview of the incident can be found here.

See other examples of these disinformation narratives, such as claims that the result of the US 2020 election doesn’t matter because the real ruler is the Deep State, that Hillary Clinton published the Deep State strategy for the world, and that the Capitol unrest was a double conspiracy.
