He made the remarks during an appearance on CNN.


“The biggest election fraud of the 2020 cycle  it didn't happen in any voting booth or in any mail-in drop box,” Conway said on CNN.  “It’s happening now with these people peddling the lie that he won the election.”

The comment came in response to a question about Rep.

“No. No way, no way, no way,” Jordan told CNN. “We should still try to figure out exactly what took place here. And as I said that includes, I think, debates on the House floor — potentially on Jan. 6.”

Trump, however, has refused to concede and has launched a legal battle to overturn the results. It has led to a long string of defeats across the country, including at the Supreme Court, which refused on Tuesday a bid by Trump allies to overturn the results in Pennsylvania. No public dissents were made to the court's order.

Trump's efforts have allowed him to raise money for his campaign, and his continued criticisms of the results, unsupported by hard evidence, have led to millions questioning the outcome.

The efforts have been supported by some state GOP officials, many of whom have courted Trump's support throughout his presidency.


During the CNN interview, Conway criticized a Texas lawsuit seeking to halt electors in swing states from finalizing Biden’s victory.

“This is the most insane thing yet,” Conway said. “The notion that the Supreme Court is going to have a litigation where states are attacking each other’s rules for choosing electors is insane, and they’re not going to do that.”

Despite the president’s insistence that he won, some of his allies have acknowledged Biden's victory.

Kellyanne Conway said in an interview with The 19th last week that "it looks like Joe Biden and Kamala HarrisKamala HarrisHarris highlights COVID-19 vaccination safety, efficacy in SC event to kick off tour Kamala Harris is still not ready for primetime (much less 2024) Lara Trump calls on Americans at border to 'arm up and get guns and be ready' MORE will prevail,” adding, “I assume the electors will certify that and it will be official. We, as a nation, will move forward, because we always do."
