Trump Says FBI & DOJ Could be Involved in “Rigged Election”
President Trump on Sunday said his administration’s Department of Justice and the FBI could be “involved” in an alleged widespread voter fraud conspiracy plot in the 2020 presidential election.
There has been no evidence of widespread voter fraud, but Trump on Sunday — in his first TV interview since the election — continued to say that the election was “rigged.”
“This is total fraud,” the president said on Fox News. “And how the FBI and Department of Justice — I don’t know, maybe they’re involved. But how people are allowed to get away with this stuff is unbelievable.”
For Allies Who Need It, Trump’s Tough Love is the Finest Love of All
High above the West Coast, flying home from a diplomatic mission to Asia, National Security Advisor Robert C. O’Brien reflected Monday on the notion that tough love is the finest love of all. Sometimes only a close friend has the concern or the courage to say what other won’t: Put down the fork, put away the bottle, and pay your bills, before you get into deeper trouble. Far better to hear such advice from a friend than from a boss, business partner, or banker.
“It’s counterintuitive to some on the Left, who believe that subservience, acquiescence, and enabling our friends somehow helps them,” O’Brien told me. “What helps them is to be candid, truthful, and frank with them about what we can and can’t do, and what we need them to do.”

If Trump’s campaign challenges in court fall short and he does not get a second term in the White House, it’s still unlikely we’ve seen the last of Trump.
Two sources “familiar with conversations” inside Trump’s sphere told Axios that Trump is speaking with his advisers about running again in 2024.
