For starters, they claim the 2020 election “featured unprecedented allegations of voter fraud.” Of course, those claims emanated from the very person seeking to benefit from this coup: Trump.
Yet the objectors misleadingly suggest that Trump has not had his day in court yet, writing: “Ideally, the courts would have heard evidence and resolved these claims of serious election fraud. Twice, the Supreme Court had the opportunity to do so; twice, the Court declined.”
The senatorial statement concludes with the line, “Every one of us should act together to ensure that the election was lawfully conducted under the Constitution.” It was — as countless lawsuits, recounts and audits bear out.
But facts don’t matter to Trump or those like Cruz — It’s about power at all costs. To Trump and his GOP allies, democracy is simply an obstacle standing in the way of their fanatical lust for power.
