U.S. Senate candidate Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL05) appeared on the Dinesh D’Souza podcast on Tuesday following his heated exchange Sunday with Sandra Smith of Fox News when Brooks repeated his assertion that there was significant fraud in the 2020 election.

“When I hear these talking heads on TV or in the media just out of hand reject the idea that there was significant voter fraud or election theft activity in 2020 without any evidence to support what they say, I know it is wrong,” Brooks said. “I know what the burden of proof is. I know what the evidence is to a large degree in regards to what happened in 2020. I personally believe that the evidence is overwhelming and compelling that there was major voting fraud and election theft in the 2020 election.”

Brooks said that the media wants a “Smoking gun or a signed statement or something irrefutable” that election fraud happened. “You are not going to get that," he said. "Rarely do you even get that in a court of law when you are prosecuting an alleged criminal and you are trying to get a guilty verdict from a judge and a jury. That is not the standard by which we operate.”

Brooks and D’Souza criticized the mainstream media for their oft-repeated assertions that there was no voting fraud in 2020.

“From my point of view that this incessant parroting back by the media ‘No fraud, no fraud, no fraud," said Brooks. "It is almost like a tape recording when they haven’t done their own research their own understanding of the United States Constitution and United States code is incomplete. They don’t apply the facts to the law and to the consequence that they are doing a great disservice to our country by continuing to falsely assert that there was no substantive voting fraud or election theft activity in the 2020 election. To me, the evidence is overwhelming and compelling to the contrary."

Brooks maintains that non-citizen voting played a role in President Trump’s defeat in 2020.

Dinesh D’Souza produced the controversial documentary ‘2000 Mules’ which tracked the movements of paid ballot harvesters in the 2020 election through their cell phone tower pings and claims that significant voter fraud occurred in multiple swing states.

Brooks is reportedly being investigated by the secretive House Jan. 6 Commission over statements that he said about the 2020 election and how those statements may have allegedly influenced the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6, 2021.

Brooks is in his 12th year representing Alabama’s Fifth Congressional District. He is a former State Representative, Madison County commissioner, district attorney, prosecutor, and career litigator.

Brooks faces Katie Boyd Britt in the June 21 Republican primary runoff for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Richard Shelby (R).

The eventual Republican nominee will appear on the Nov. 8 general election ballot along with Democrat Dr. Will Boyd and Libertarian John Sophocleus.
