Election 2020

For months, President Trump and his allies have made numerous false claims about election fraud in various competitive states, including at a rally before a mob stormed the Capitol. Here, we tackle some of the claims.

Democrats, seeking to impeach President Trump, say his comments incited the crowd to storm the building while lawmakers were certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. Mr. Trump denies that he said anything improper.
