Newsmax hosts embrace conspiracy theory claiming Trump can still win since Kamala Harris hasn’t resigned her Senate seat
On December 15, Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield floated a bizarre election-related conspiracy theory. Introducing a segment on false accusations of widespread voter fraud, Stinchfield claimed that Vice President-elect Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) believes President Donald Trump could still win the presidential election given that Harris has not yet resigned her current seat in the United States Senate.
On December 7, Newsmax host Greg Kelly suggested the same.
This is deranged.
On Monday the Electoral College convened across the nation and officially confirmed Joe Biden and Harris’s win with 306 electoral votes to Trump’s 232.
Additionally, as The New York TImes pointed out in debunking tweets about this conspiracy theory, there is absolutely nothing unusual about Harris having not yet resigned her Senate seat. Everyone is aware that she will do so at some point in the next month.
