The left is on a quest to make everyone believe that the 2020 and 2022 lections are the fairest in the land… and they just got some help from Sean Hannity, who said under oath, that he did not believe President Trump’s claims of election fraud. Does Sean Hannity believe that Joe Biden won 81 million legal votes, at a time in this country when we were flooded with an unprecedented number of mail-in ballots that went completely unsupervised? I don’t know; I have never personally heard him address that specific topic on his show – that doesn’t mean he hasn’t addressed it.
But on thing I do know is that people were getting dozens of unrequested ballots sent to their homes, but all of that is totally normal, according to many folks on the left.
Now, I know Sean’s testimony had to do with Dominion specifically, and the claims Sidney Powell made, and I agree, that stuff was goofy… But all of that happened at a time when the country was in chaos after all the “secret night-time ballot counting” and people were in a frenzy.
Strange things happen during a frenzy.
But now, the left is using Sean’s testimony to further “prove” that our elections are perfectly fine.
The New York Times reported that on Nov. 30, 2020, Sean Hannity hosted Sidney Powell on his prime-time Fox News program. As she had in many other interviews around that time — on Fox and elsewhere in right-wing media — Ms. Powell, a former federal prosecutor, spun wild conspiracy theories about what she said was “corruption all across the country, in countless districts,” in a plot to steal re-election from the president, Donald J. Trump.
At the center of this imagined plot were machines from Dominion Voting Systems, which Ms. Powell claimed ran an algorithm that switched votes for Mr. Trump to votes for Joseph R. Biden Jr. Dominion machines, she insisted, were being used “to trash large batches of votes.”
Mr. Hannity interrupted her with a gentle question that had been circulating among election deniers, despite a lack of supporting proof: Why were Democrats silencing whistle-blowers who could prove this fraud?
Did Mr. Hannity believe any of this?
“I did not believe it for one second.”
That was the answer Mr. Hannity gave, under oath, in a deposition in Dominion’s $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News, according to information disclosed in a court hearing on Wednesday. The hearing was called to address several issues that need to be resolved before the case heads for a jury trial, which the judge has scheduled to begin in April.
Mr. Hannity’s disclosure — along with others that emerged from court on Wednesday about what Fox News executives and hosts really believed as their network became one of the loudest megaphones for lies about the 2020 election — is among the strongest evidence yet to emerge publicly that some Fox employees knew that what they were broadcasting was false.
Yes, this is being taken way out of context and used as propaganda by the New York Times and others, and I am sure Hannity wasn’t trying to “sabotage” us, but it’s still frustrating to see.
Here’s the far-left podcast Young Turks discussing it.
This is how even people on our side are reporting it: “BOMBSHELL REPORT: Sean Hannity Admits in Deposition HE DID NOT BELIEVE TRUMP’S VOTER FRAUD CLAIMS – ‘I Did Not Believe It for One Second’..”

Again, in all fairness, Hannity was referring to the wacky Dominion stuff.
Regardless of Sidney Powell, I do agree that these voting machines seem as if they’re very unreliable and we should go back to paper ballots.
