Kayleigh McEnany brandishes 200 pages of affidavits alleging voter fraud as she appears on Hannity a day after being cut-off by Fox for unsubstantiated claims - as former RNC chair admits the numbers are too small to make a difference

 White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany appeared on Fox News to present 234 pages of affidavits she claimed were proof that election fraud took place, as she listed new cases the Trump campaign alleges to have uncovered. 

Her appearance on Hannity came a day after the network cut away from McEnany as she spoke in a 'personal capacity', claiming that they could not air her claims of fraud as they were unsubstantiated. 

Yet she was given free reign on Tuesday night, listing a number of allegations as both she and RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel vowed that they would continue to contest the election result until the end. 

McDaniel revealed that they have now received claims of 11,000 incidents of fraud from witnesses and have compiled 500 affidavits from these witnesses so far, as they work slowly to verify their claims. So far Republicans have filed a tiny handful of affidavits making it impossible to verify McEnany's claims that the 500 contain fraud.

Yet their claims of new evidence came just minutes after former RNC Chair Reince Priebus warned Hannity that if the GOP is to continue fighting for the chance to appeal the results they have to stop trying to make claims of fraud in places which they convincingly lost.

Despite broadcasting the claims of fraud from Trump-loyal Republicans over the past few days, Fox has announced Joe Biden as winner, as have the other major networks. 

McEnany claims she is working in a 'personal capacity' for the Trump campaign; as a government employee she is forbidden from speaking on political issues. It is unclear if the Harvard law graduate - she got in on a transfer - is speaking in her capacity as an attorney.

NEVADA POLL WORKER CLAIMS SHE ALSO SAW VOTER FRAUD

An anonymous whistleblower claimed to Fox News host Laura Ingraham that she too witnessed voter fraud in Clark County, Vegas, which was one of the most watched counties in the country when it came to the election. But where she claimed she witnessed it was redacted.

The poll worker appeared in silhouette with her voice disguised on the show. 

She claims she saw white envelopes being passed around and ripped open near a 'Biden-Harris van.' She claimed she saw people there marking ballots.

'As I got closer, I thought "those are ballots". I walked by four or five times. On the next time I walked by, they were putting them in envelopes.

'They were putting them in a white and pink envelope,' she said. They were apparently using the vans as a surface to mark the ballots.

Ingraham said: 'But you didn't say anything?'

'I kind of gave them a wide berth. We were told not to interact with people out there.' 

The woman says five or people then formed a 'human wall' to block her view of what they were doing. 'One of them looks at me and the while line moves as I walk by them and it scares me.'

But she did not apparently report it to any supervisor. 

She has signed an affidavit and given it to the Trump campaign testifying about what she claims she saw. 

But the campaign has not released it except for a page which was shown on screen on Fox News. 

McEnany had with her the 234 pages of affidavits she said came from Wayne County, Michigan, and brandished them as proof on several occasions while berating the media she accused of ignoring the reports. 

'We keep hearing the drum beat of where is the evidence but right here 234 pages of sworn affidavits, from real people, real allegations, signed with notaries,' she said. 

'In one county, Wayne County, Michigan, in one batch of ballots, 60 percent had the same signatures, 35 had no voter record but were counted anyway, 50 ballots were run multiple times through a machine. 

'One woman said her son was deceased but still voted,' she added. None of those claims can be verified and the affidavits have not been released.

'This is one county where our poll watchers were threatened with racial harassment, pushed out of the way, and Democratic challengers were handing out documents saying how to distract GOP challengers.' 

Those claims too are unverified. 

'The president wants justice for the 72million plus forgotten men and women of this country,' McEnany concluded. 

It is unclear what number she was referring to; so far Trump has 71,925,902 votes and Joe Biden has 79,996,528 votes. 

The Trump campaign filed a lawsuit in Michigan on Monday claiming that their poll watchers and 'challengers' said they could not get close enough to see what was happening. 

The federal judge has not yet given an indication on what their action will be on the suit but it comes after the campaign filed a similar lawsuit with the same claims that was quickly dismissed. 

Last Wednesday, the campaign filed a lawsuit to halt the vote count in the state saying the poll watchers were denied 'meaningful access' to the counting of ballots or surveillance video of the ballot drop boxes. 

Yet, the case was dismissed by Thursday with the judge ruling there was no legal basis or evidence. 

On Tuesday night, Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani claimed that the affidavits held by McEnany would be published on Wednesday.    

McDaniel reiterated the claims that poll workers in Michigan were being pushed out of the room, stating that it would now make it hard for Republicans to know what happened to the votes once they left. 

She alleged that some mail-in ballots in Detroit were being brought in in the middle of the night so none of the process could be observed, despite the judge already making a ruling that there was not evidence of this.   

'How do we remedy this? If you have nothing to hide, why are you kicking out people out?' she questioned.

She also accused the election of being 'rigged' from the beginning and that the media were now contributing. 

'Laws being passed in the name of COVID to create a porous election,' she accused. 

'They kicked Republicans out of it and now the media is rigging it again by saying they won't listen to these stories, not going to validate the 11,000 incident reports, 500 affidavits about this states, testifying under oath they were disenfranchised from this election.

'It is stealing,' she continued, 'when you validate a vote that shouldn't be in, it's stealing from a person.'

Yet she urged Trump supporters to be patient, as it was a 'long process' and 'canvassing is not yet done'. 

She was echoing the words of her predecessor Priebus who moments before had said that it would be next week before most states finished their canvassing for evidence of any irregularities or mistakes in the vote count.     

He explained that the canvas would remove any votes that should not have been included from a recount before a winner is declared but that each party has the right to appeal votes being included if they believe they were fraudulent.

Yet he warned that there must be a large number of votes involved, or at least enough to swing the election, if it was to be taken as far as the Supreme Court. 

'You can bring every single vote that matters and every one of your complaints and appeal each to the court of appeal,' he said. 

'Where things do get dicey is can I bring a complaint the to Supreme Court that alleges ten votes and the court is looking at it and you lost by 19,000, they're not going to take it. It's important at some point, fraud has to meet a certain point to bring to the Supreme Court.' 

Trump and his campaign have yet to present no substantial evidence of abuse and as of Tuesday evening, had filed no new cases today.

They have already filed cases in Pennsylvania and Michigan which claim poll watchers could not get close enough to see counting fully, after initially complaining they were not allowed in at all then admitting they were.

But neither allege abuse on a scale which would lead to overturning the almost 50,000 lead Joe Biden has in Pennsylvania and the 150,000 he has in Michigan. Ballot counting abuse has not been alleged in court anywhere else. 

As McEnany and McDaniels made their claims on Hannity, the president was on a Twitter rampage, retweeting reports of fraud and claiming that 'people will not accept this rigged election'. 

Their appearance also came after McEnany had been cut off by Fox for stating that Republican wanted 'every legal vote to be counted, and every illegal vote to be discarded'.

'Whoa, whoa, whoa – I just think we have to be very clear. She's charging the other side as welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can't in good countenance continue to show you this,' said host Neil Cavuto and he cut away from her press briefing. 

'I want to make sure that maybe they do have something to back that up, but that's an explosive charge to make, that the other side is effectively rigging and cheating. If she does bring proof of that, of course we'll take you back. So far she has started saying, right at the outset – 'welcoming fraud, welcoming illegal voting'. Not so fast.' 

The move infuriated Trump, coming from the network that was considered an ally. 

Yet it increasingly frustrated the president during the election count by calling the likes of Arizona for his rival Biden before other networks. 

Also on Monday, another Fox host was caught live, exasperated that the fraud claims were being aired when the network has declared Biden the winner. 

'What? What is happening?' Sandra Smith said. 'We've called it'.
