Mick Mulvaney Shuts Down Maria Bartiromo’s Election Nonsense: ‘We Have to Be Honest’
Maria Bartiromo may have thought she had a kindred spirit on her Fox Business Show Monday morning when she brought up the Trump administration's final legal efforts to overturn the elections. But former White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney wasn't ready to go there with her.
At the end of a section on the COVID-19 relief package, Bartiromo turned and asked her guest to weigh his former boss's plan to petition the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for millions of postal ballots. "Mick, what do you think of this suit?" she inquired. "Could this be a potential win for President Trump?"
"Potentially safe," replied Mulvaney. “But I think we have to be honest with ourselves, Maria. So far, no one has been impressed with the results of the law. It was apparently conducted primarily as a public relations campaign, not a serious legal investigation. "

While it is "expected" that Trump and his campaign team "continue to use every tool at their disposal" to contest the elections, which he clearly lost, Mulvaney urged the president and his supporters to redirect their efforts instead Focusing runoff election in Georgia next month will determine control of the Senate.
"Because if the Democrats take control of the Senate, there will be no way to investigate at all after January 20," Mulvaney said, arguing that only then will we "finally find out what the 2020 election is about has happened".
"That's a great point, Mick, I'm glad you made it," a slightly deflated Bartiromo replied before ending the segment.
