More conservatives break with Trump over election claims

Source: The Hill

A growing number of conservative Republicans are breaking with President Trump and his legal team over what they view as a dangerous effort to overturn the election results by promoting conspiracy theories.

...

The voices range from Fox News’s Tucker Carlson to Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) to conservative lawyers and thought leaders such as Karl Rove.

...

“This is delusional,” said Mark Braden, the former chief counsel at the RNC. “I’m a professional Republican so it’s not easy for me to have to deal with my friends on this. Look – voter fraud occurs. I’ve seen it. It happens. But you have to be realistic about the size and scope of it.”

Republican lawyers interviewed by The Hill said Trump’s early legal challenges on voter fraud were defensible and reasonable, even if they had no chance of changing the outcome of the election. But they’re disturbed by the dark turn things have taken, and worried that Trump’s claims are undermining democracy and misleading millions of his own supporters.

1. You all foisted him on this country

You all knew exactly what he was, and how he would act. Yet you have gladly backed his evil. Worshipped him like a golden calf. All you care about is power and money, money and power.

2. EXACTLY.

I, for one, will NEVER forget where this piece of shit came from, nor will I forget who supported him and shoved him on the rest of us.

3. Too little, too late.

The choice was clear - Biden had won in a landslide, and Trump lost in a humiliating defeat. Trump turned it into a battle between himself and democracy, and these Republicans chose to sit on the sidelines to see who won. By doing so they showed their lack of character and lack of true patriotism. They also violated their oath of office, which is "to protect the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic." The moment Trump refused to concede he became the latter.

So they're slowly "coming around"? Fuck them and the cows they rode in on.

6. Trump is only doing what the Republican leadership has been doing for over forty years.

It is very simple and very easy to comprehend. That is the transition of the presidency into a authoritarian who has absolute dictatorial powers who will put the country in the hands of the plutocrats.
