STEVE BANNON (HOST): First off, tee it up, you're going to be on Ari Melber today at 5 o'clock, I think Peter Navarro's also going to be on there. MSNBC's coming hard.

BORIS EPSHTEYN: 6 o'clock.

BANNON: 6 o'clock, sorry, 6 o'clock, you start the show, I think Navarro's going to be also on, they're coming hard at you guys today. GIve us, just quick tee up on the Ari Melber of it all.

EPSHTEYN: Major, big league showdown today, Ari Melber who, let's be honest, is a very smart guy over at MSNBC, was smart enough to reach out and say hey, we're doing a big show, can you come and talk about the bigger picture around Jan. 6, which obviously is the bigger picture around 3 November around the stolen election. So I'm going to be on MSNBC, on The Beat today, between 6, 6:15, we're going to start, we're going to go through it all.

And my bottom line is this -- you look at Arizona, Wisconsin, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and beyond, the story here is the big steal. They want to talk about the deadly insurrection. The only person who was killed in the quote, unquote insurrection on January 6 is Ashli Babbit. OK, so they want to talk about oh, this is the end of democracy, this is the end of our country, the only way, the only way we save our democracy is to get to the bottom of 2020.


EPSHTEYN: And to tell the American people, to let them know who truly won the election and I fully believe that's President Donald J. Trump.

BANNON: He definitely won it.


BANNON: Biden, suck on this. Little Jamie Raskin, suck on this. Trump won, Biden's illegitimate, and every day we go forward, we grow stronger. Jena Griswold, we grow stronger. You grow weaker, OK, and the reason we grow stronger, we have the truth on our side.


BANNON: Everybody knows this. Let me give you the inside baseball here. They're laughing in your face. They know they stole it. They know exactly – Marc Elias and, and – know exactly. And Bauer, Bob Bauer, the architect. Bauer's the architect, and Marc Elias is the chief engineer. They know exactly how they stole this. We went around the country. Raheem and I went around the country in the summer of 2021 or 2020, when they told us how they were going to steal in the Transition Integrity Project because they're already planning on a transition and how they're going to steal it. They're laughing in your face, and they used to be able to laugh and the Republicans would just go, oh, well don't call me a racist, don't call me anything. And no, now you got people say, hey, how about this? Suck on this. We're going to back you down and we're going to get to the bottom of it.
