FOX News Host Admits ‘Intel Source’ Informed Show Trump Did in Fact Win Election
Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo shocked viewers on Wednesday when she announced that an “intel source” informed her that President Donald Trump had actually won reelection. While the television host didn’t divulge who her source was, there has been intense speculation and many have guessed that the source is the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe.
Ratcliffe is a frequent guest on Bargiromo’s show and has a close, ongoing, business relationship with the Fox Business host. Ratcliffe also has a highly anticipated report on the election that is expected to come out in just days. That report is expected to “throw a grenade into the whole mountain of fraud” according to some reports.
“An intel source told me President Trump did, in fact, win the election,” Bartiromo said on Wednesday. “He says that it is up to the Supreme Court to hear suits from other cases across the country to stop the clock. This follows the high court’s refusal to hear the lawsuit from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.”
The television host referenced the Supreme Court’s decisions not to hear the case brought by Texas, which was a huge disappointment to many conservatives who were open about their belief that the election was rigged.
In a dissenting statement from Supreme Court justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito the pair explained exactly why they stood against the majority decision not to hear the case.
“The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution,” the preamble to the justices’ statement said. “Texas has not demonstrated a judicially cognizable interest in the manner in which another State conducts its elections. All other pending motions are dismissed as moot.”
“In my view, we do not have discretion to deny the filing of a bill of complaint in a case that falls within our original jurisdiction,” the dissenting justices explained. “I would therefore grant the motion to file the bill of complaint but would not grant other relief, and I express no view on any other issue.”
The video clip of Bartiromo’s statement caused a stir on social media. Leftists called her out, branding her as a lunatic:
“@MariaBartiromo has officially tested positive as delusional,” said one member of the Blue Check Brigade. “Fox ‘Business’ Channel sounds more like fascist propaganda,” said another.
“If the likes of @MariaBartiromo, @SeanHannity & @SRuhle are allowed on the air w/major networks while clearly lacking in journalistic integrity, it begs the question of why when it’s clearly against the public good. Who does it benefit to keep the people uninformed?” said another commenter.
Other comments included:
“Biden will be inaugurated on January 20th along with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.”
“Ok. I try not to get political on here. But this is downright insane. What is wrong with people? Why do tv executives even allow this garbage on their network? It doesn’t matter who you voted for, this stuff isn’t reality. This isn’t the tv show @scandal. #EnoughAlready.
“People please stop give Trump your money! PLEASE IGNORE @realDonaldTrump! Stop feeding his ego & giving him the attention he craves & the money he needs! He knows he lost. It’s a con to get money from his sucker followers! Stop empowering & enabling him!”
For their part, the Texas Republican Party was far from satisfied with the high court’s decision.
“The Supreme Court, in tossing the Texas lawsuit that was joined by seventeen states and 106 US congressmen, have decreed that a state can take unconstitutional actions and violate its own election law,” Texas GOP Chairman Allen West said in a statement following the Supreme Court’s rejection.
“Resulting in damaging effects on other states that abide by the law, while the guilty state suffers no consequences. This decision establishes a precedent that says states can violate the US constitution and not be held accountable,” the retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel and former Florida congressman.
“This decision will have far-reaching ramifications for the future of our constitutional republic. Perhaps law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution,” West said.
“Texas GOP will always stand for the Constitution and for the rule of law even while others don’t,” the statement read.
