President Trump asserted that he won big in Pennsylvania on Friday, Nov. 27, as he pointed to more than 1 million illegal mail-in ballots.
The president commented in response to Sen. Doug Mastriano (R-Pa.), who found the discrepancy between the mail-in ballots sent out and the received mail-in ballots.
“Pennsylvania reports having mailed out 1,823,148 ballots, of which 1,462,302 were returned. Yet total mail-in votes number 2,589,242? From where did the extra 2,589,242 — 1,462,302 = 1,126,940 votes come?” the image tweeted by Mastriano reads.
“This was posted on our Department of State dashboard but had since been deleted,” Mastriano said.
President Trump replied, “The 1,126,940 votes were created out of thin air. I won Pennsylvania by a lot, perhaps more than anyone will ever know. The Pennsylvania votes were RIGGED. All other swing states also. The world is watching!”

Earlier this week, Mastriano spearheaded a state Senate hearing in Gettysburg on the 2020 election issues and voting irregularities, which featured the president’s lawyer Rudi Giuliani and witnesses.
After the hearing, Mastriano expressed frustration over the extent of voter fraud, which he said is “by design.” Mastriano then vowed to “not let it stand.”
A Pennsylvania state court judge, also on Friday upheld a halt to certification of election results issued earlier this week and found it likely that mail-in balloting procedures violated the state constitution.

Mastriano revealed that the Pennsylvania Legislature would move to issue a joint resolution to assign presidential electors instead of Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, reported the National File.
“There is so much evidence of shenanigans and fraud, and we can’t stand aside and just watch this unfold around us here. You know, it’s not about disenfranchising anybody, it’s making sure every legal vote counted, and if there is extensive shenanigans out there, it’s up to the General Assembly to step in,” Mastriano said.
“So we have a fight on our hands, and we’re going to fight, we’re going to take that fight all the way to the Supreme Court if we have to,” he added. “We can’t certify an election result that appears to be corrupted.”
