CNN host thinks he nailed voter fraud researcher, then he comes out with this head-scratcher

Gregg Phillips, the former Texas Health and Human Services Commission deputy commissioner who founded “the first mobile anti-vote fraud app” VoteStand, has made national news of late for his contention that 3 million people voted illegally in the last election.

Given the likely fact that, 3 million or not, very few illegals voted for Donald Trump, the President has become more than a little interested in this data.

This has drawn the attention of mainstream media outlets like CNN, determined to “prove” Phillips wrong.

The VoteStand founder appeared on the network twice on Friday, first with host Chris Cuomo, then later with guest host John Berman filling in for Anderson Cooper. The theme of both appearances was Phillips’ contention that his data wasn’t quite ready to be released to the public, and CNN was quick to pounce on that as evidence that there is nothing behind the claims.

“We’re going to release all of this to the public,” Phillips told Cuomo. “We are going to release our methodology and release the broad data and our conclusions and we’re going to release everything to the public as soon as we get done with the checks. (We) believe it will probably take another few months to get this done.”

Phillips essentially told Berman the same thing later that evening, but the CNN guest host, determined to press further, asked what the evidence looked like.

He described a “very sophisticated operation” that builds “analytics around the list so we can understand patterns and who is voting where and when.”

The two argued over how many actual non-citizens are in the U.S., and Berman seemed incredulous that 3 million out of even a possible 33 million would have voted illegally.

According to Phillips, the system “has not only allowed it to occur but has facilitated and fostered the means through which it occurs.”

Apparently speaking for the network, Berman said, “We don’t think so,” and asked Phillips, “Do you know so?”

“We believe we do, and that’s why we’re going back and double-checking,” Phillips said, essentially saying they would “expose the list to the public” when they are ready.

Berman then asked Phillips whether he had “cross-checked” his data by contacting voters on this list. Phillips seemed incredulous, saying essentially accusing someone of committing “two felonies” was “above his pay grade.”

“It’s not my problem,” Phillips said. The list, when ready, would be turned over to Jeff Sessions and the proper officials.

Stunningly, the CNN guest host mentioned that he spoke earlier with Loyola law professor Justin Levitt who apparently “hasn’t come across one person who has gone in and checked the wrong box.”

So, according to the mainstream media, “not one person” has purposely voted illegally?

Not only is CNN putting all their eggs in the basket of Phillips and his group completely lying about their list based only on the fact that it’s not ready to be released just yet, they now also seem to be insisting that not one single person voted illegally in the last election.

As Bill O’Reilly has aptly pointed out, neither of those bets seem rational or reasonable, but then again, nobody ever accused the mainstream media of being either of those things!
