Biden will be seen as an 'imposter president' as election was rigged against Trump, claims ex-Bill Clinton aide
Dick Morris' statement came despite the Electoral College declaring Biden as the official winner of the 2020 presidential elections last week
Former president Bill Clinton's advisor has claimed that the presidential election was rigged against Donald Trump and that president-elect Joe Biden will be viewed as an "imposter". Political strategist Dick Morris, while making statements on conservative TV channel Newsmax, denounced Biden as a "transparent fraud" and a "usurper".
The 74-year-old said: "We may have a situation with the president of the United States is a transparent fraud, in which he's a usurper, an impostor, and we may have to live with that for four years." Morris' statement came despite the Electoral College declaring Biden as the official winner of the 2020 presidential elections last week. The Democrat also won the popular vote by a clear majority. President Trump, however, has still refused to concede to Biden in the polls by claiming a massive "voter fraud". However, neither the Republican leader nor his campaign has provided any evidence to back the claims. Election officials have also consistently claimed that there is no evidence of voter fraud that would alter the election results.
"Let's at least understand who did it to us, and why they did it, and trace it back to China and the other actors who did this," Morris said, making a reference to a conspiracy theory alleging foreign interference in the elections. Morris, who worked as Clinton's reelection campaign manager in 1996, resigned just hours before President Clinton's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention (DNC). It was revealed at that time that Morris had allowed a prostitute in Virginia, Sherry Rowlands, to listen in on his private conversations with the president, according to the Washinton Post. Rowlands later recounted hearing Morris discuss the Whitewater scandal with Clinton after his phone was answered by former First Lady Hillary Clinton who went to call her husband.
Rowlands had said: "When (Bill Clinton) came back he sounds really mad…. and he said, 'Look, Dick, I would prefer you not use this phone anymore. You can understand Hillary is upset, my wife is not well, you know with all this Whitewater trial and everything, she is not well. You know the regular lines, do not call the private residence anymore.' And he was embarrassed and he said, 'I'm sorry, sir' and hung up." The Whitewater scandal involved an investigation into the real estate investments made by the Clintons and their associates Jim and Susan McDougal in the Whitewater Development Corporation.
Some had hoped that Trump and his allies' claims of voter fraud would quiet down after the official declaration of the election results by the Electoral College last week. However, the Republican has continued to insist that he won the polls. On December 13, Trump also refused to discuss whether he would attend Biden's inauguration in January and instead continued to insist that the Democrats "lost badly" in the 2020 presidential elections.
Trump, in an interview with Fox News host Brian Kilmeade, was asked whether he would "show up at the inauguration", to which the president replied saying: "I don't want to talk about that." The Republican leader then claimed that he did not lose the election to Biden. "I want to talk about this: we've done a great job," he said. "I got more votes than any president in the history of our country. In the history of our country, right? Not even close — 75 million far more than Obama, far more than anybody. And they say we lost an election. We didn't lose. If I got 10 million fewer votes, they say I couldn't have lost."
