Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich took to Twitter on Friday to say that the 2020 presidential election could be the “biggest presidential theft” since 1824 as he urged legislatures around the country to call for recounts.

“The more data comes out on vote anomalies that clearly are not legitimate the more it looks like 2020 may be the biggest Presidential theft since Adams and Clay robbed Andrew Jackson in 1824,” Gingrich tweeted. “State legislatures should demand recounts.”

Gingrich doubled down early Saturday morning, when he tweeted that Republican state legislators should read an analysis from Patrick Basham, the founding Director of the Democracy Institute and senior fellow of the Cato Institute. In this analysis, Basham listed ten “peculiarities” which he believes lack “compelling explanations,” including swing states halting their ballot counts on election night and removing observers. He also cited statistically abnormal vote counts and “historically low absentee ballot rejection rates.”

“Every Republican state legislator should read Patrick Basham’s analysis and demand an oversight committee to review their state’s vote,” Gingrich tweeted. “Basham makes clear the election was almost certainly stolen in 5 states. Every Americanm should be worried by the theft.”

Later in the day on Saturday, Gingrich took to Twitter once again to say, “Two-thirds of the nation say it is fair for President Donald Trump to ask for a recount in key states, according to a new Newsmax/McLaughlin & Associates poll released Thursday.”

Though various media outlets have called the 2020 presidential election for Biden, Trump has yet to concede and has pledged to fight this out in various legal challenges that he claims will expose mass voter fraud. The president has said that he will even take this all the way to the Supreme Court, if it comes to that.

In an op-d for The Epoch Times earlier this week, Gingrich alleged that election officials in Democratic strongholds of Pennsylvania ”exceeded their authority in order to give voters preferential treatment,” but their work was sloppy and the courts ”need to stop them from destroying more evidence.”

He claimed that officials in certain Pennsylvania counties used ”a variety of illegal practices that were used to inflate the number of votes received by Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, including disparate treatment of voters based on where they live and outright manipulation of Pennsylvania’s voter registration system by partisan activities.”

”Specifically, election workers illegally ‘pre-canvassed’ mail-in ballots to determine whether they were missing a secrecy envelope or failed to include necessary information,” Gingrich wrote. ”When ballots were found to be flawed, voters were given an opportunity to correct, or ‘cure,’ their ballots to make sure they counted. In at least some cases, Democrat Party officials were even given lists of voters to contact about curing their ballots.”
