"It was like sending live ammunition out across the country that was bound to be harnessed and used in a fraudulent manner," White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany quoted President Donald Trump's lawyers regarding mail-in voting.

"And make no mistake, it was," she told Fox News host Mark Levin on Sunday's "Life, Liberty & Levin."

“Nevada, no greater example, where when they did the mass mail-out voting in the primary, you had ballots languishing in trash cans, pinned on apartment dartboards. And what did they do again? In the general election, mail out ballots across the state and really across the country when you look at these states, and the way they’ve been sending it out.”

Levin referenced the compilation of affidavits describing instances of voter fraud in key states during Election Night as representing a systemic attempt to steal the election from President Trump. 

“You know, Kayleigh, all of these changes are designed to help the Democrat Party, all of them. They don’t improve the voting system. They don’t improve the integrity of the vote," he said. Democrats "really want to hurry up because they want to kill this, don’t they?"

A full transcript of the interview follows:

Mark Levin: You have compiled what is significant evidence of fraud, not an email that says "look at this, we have 200,000 ballots." That’s not the way it works. You’ve got to find instances of fraud, patterns, and you have to follow them. And we don’t have subpoena power, you know, like the government does. What have you found? Give us some examples. 

Kayleigh McEnany: Yeah, quite a bit, Mark. And you hit the nail on the head that for a long time, for decades, in these Democrat-run cities, they have designed a system that no one has challenged where it has been rife with fraud. I have hundreds of pages of affidavits here, Michigan alone, where they saw ballots, piles of ballots going through machines multiple times, where they saw that when a name was not matched or found in the voter records, they were just logged in with the birthday Jan. 1, 1900, example after example. And this is an old system, an old fraudulent system. And it took this president winning new states, like Pennsylvania and Michigan, to finally challenge the old system. But more than even the instances of fraud we found, Mark, you hit the nail on the head back in September. You called this. When there were Democrat secretaries of state, around this country, redesigning our election systems, flouting the state legislators who under Article 1, Section 4, has the power to determine the time, manner, and place of elections, flouting that and changing and redesigning a system. Nevada, no greater example, where when they did the mass mail-out voting in the primary, you had ballots languishing in trash cans, pinned on apartment dartboards. And what did they do again? In the general election, mail out ballots across the state and really across the country when you look at these states, and the way they’ve been sending it out. And our lawyers described it to me this way: It was like sending live ammunition out across the country that was bound to be harnessed and used in a fraudulent manner. And make no mistake, it was. 

Levin: You know, Kayleigh, all of these changes are designed to help the Democrat Party, all of them. They don’t improve the voting system. They don’t improve the integrity of the vote. They certainly don’t help the Republicans, who mostly vote in-person where they have all these checks and balances in place. It’s not the Republicans talking about "if we win one election, we are going to destroy the judiciary and destroy the United States Senate" and so forth. And yet you can see the Thomas Friedman types, the media, and the Democrats, they all speak in one voice, demanding that we hurry up, hurry up, hurry up. You know it takes an assistant U.S. attorney months and sometimes years to bring one tax fraud case. You’re talking about at least six states with massive populations, where these volunteer lawyers that are working for the Trump campaign have to find ways to interview individuals who make allegations. There’s no subpoena powers and so forth. And they say, let's hurry up, hurry up. They really want to hurry up because they want to kill this, don’t they?

McEnany: Yeah, that’s exactly right. And you’re right that it takes time to do this. But what we’ve managed to find in just seven-plus days -- we found quite a bit -- people who are willing, in their own handwriting, to write down their allegation, put their name down, sign their allegation with a notary there, sworn testimony under penalty of perjury, and what is remarkable is the consistency with which the affidavits read, of poll workers being pushed out in Michigan, literally, physically pushed, one young woman called the c-word, another one of our poll watchers, who was a man of Chinese descent, being yelled at and said, "why are you here? You’re not an American." And when he said "I am an American," he was proceeded to be shouted down for five minutes. These people deserve to be heard and finally you have a president doing just that. But these Democrat secretaries of state, I can’t express enough, Mark, what they have done. I recall, when our campaign lawyers came to the president, this was months ago, saying "look at what they are doing across the country. They are redesigning a system," like Secretary Boockvar out in Pennsylvania saying "you can receive ballots up to three days after Election Day. No, they don’t have to be postmarked." Her telling the Supreme Court, "I’m not going to count those ballots; I'm keeping them to the side." The Supreme Court saying "OK, we believe you" and then she changes her guidance and it takes Justice Alito to rebuke her. They were consistently misrepresenting their opinion, changing deadlines, designing a system to prop up Democrats and Joe Biden.
