The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) will feature seven talks on “protecting elections” as former President Donald Trump, the annual convention’s top speaker, continues to baselessly claim that he won the 2020 presidential election.
Three “protecting elections” events will take place on Friday, according to the CPAC 2021 schedule, and the remaining four will go ahead on Sunday—when Trump is slated to deliver a keynote speech to close the conservative conference.
The subtitles for the talks vary but indicate that panelists are likely to take issue with state election rules, or allege that the November election was impacted by mass voter fraud in favor of President Joe Biden.
“Failed States (PA, GA, NV, oh my!)” is the title of one panel discussion on “protecting elections,” while another promises a talk on how “the left pulled the strings, covered it up, and even admits it.”
The second talk on the 2020 election, scheduled for the first full day of the conference, will cover “other culprits” in the outcome of the race—namely the “judges & media” who supposedly “refused to look at the evidence.”
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) is expected to sit on the panel. In a December speech on the House floor, he claimed that there was “irrefutable” and “overwhelming” evidence that Trump would have won a second term in the White House if “only lawful votes” had been counted.
The Liberty Buzz has contacted the American Conservative Union for comment and further details on the panel discussions.
Trump is set to make his first major public appearance at CPAC on February 28 and deliver an address to conservative activists gathered in Orlando, Florida. Several of his allies on Capitol Hill are also slated to appear at the event, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL).
