In a recent gubernatorial debate, West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner, a Republican, made the bold statement that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) played a role in stealing the 2020 presidential election from President Donald Trump.
Mac Warner, a 23-year veteran of the U.S. Army and current Secretary of State of West Virginia, has positioned himself as a battle-tested leader on his campaign website. His military and administrative experiences form a significant part of his gubernatorial campaign.
During the debate, Warner doubled down on his past allegations of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election. This time, he implicated the CIA directly, stating: “The election was stolen, and it was stolen by the CIA.” Warner referred to testimony by Mike Morrell, the former Deputy Director of the CIA, before Jim Jordan’s House Judiciary Committee.

In his speech, Warner cited his own military service and that of General Michael Flynn as evidence of their familiarity with psychological operations. He accused the CIA of lying to the American people about the Hunter Biden laptop issue, claiming that both the CIA and FBI knew it was not Russian disinformation but allowed the lie to go forth to the American people.
While Warner has sewn these claims together before, most notably while speaking at a ReAwaken America rally last August, his most recent statement has garnered significant attention.
The West Virginia Secretary of State’s allegations come at a time when the country is still grappling with the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election. The claims of election fraud and the role of the CIA have sparked a heated debate among politicians and the public alike.
As a result of Warner’s statements, a number of other prominent figures have come forward to share their thoughts on the matter. Republican Representative Adam Kinzinger took to Twitter to express his disbelief, calling the claims “insane” and suggesting that those making them have “brain worms.”
Meanwhile, Lara Logan, a former CBS News journalist, shared a link to an article about Warner’s claims, seemingly in support of his assertions. Similarly, Chuck Callesto, a political activist and former congressional candidate, tweeted about the story, calling it a “BREAKING REPORT.”
Despite the controversy surrounding Warner’s claims, it is important to note that the West Virginia Secretary of State has been a vocal supporter of former President Donald Trump and his claims of election fraud. Warner has questioned voting methods in swing states like Pennsylvania and Michigan and promoted an endorsement from former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who was among Trump’s most prominent allies in supporting election fraud claims.
As the debate surrounding the 2020 presidential election continues, Warner’s allegations of the CIA’s involvement in stealing the election will undoubtedly add fuel to the fire. While some may dismiss his claims as conspiracy theories, others may see them as further evidence of a larger issue at play.
In any case, the West Virginia Secretary of State’s bold assertion has thrust the issue of election integrity back into the spotlight, and it remains to be seen how the political landscape will be affected in the coming weeks and months.
