Allegations of the stolen election of the former president are surging
Washington— Loyalty to lies has become a test of loyalty to Donald Trump and a means of self-protection for Republicans.
Trump’s infamous move about the election theft did not help save his presidency, because the High Court, the state government and the state legislature eventually rallied in the chaos that his dissatisfaction had exacerbated the rebellion, claiming that he was legal. The failure of the process and the honesty of the process led to it.
Now, those “big lie” accusations are never closer to the truth than before.
Republicans are expected to believe in false facts and pretend to be so, or at least don’t let people know that they are not. Trump or his supporters criticized Republican leaders in states from Georgia to Arizona for opposing this lie.
Everyone involved in Trump’s ruthless election proposition agrees that the “big lie” is the focus of the problem. President Joe Biden said so. Cheney said so. Dominion Voting Systems claimed in a large-scale lawsuit that Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani “made up and spread a’big lie.’
Trump tried to describe this sentence by opposing his accuser, which is his presidency model when he criticized “fake news” after his own criticism.
“From today, the fraudulent presidential election in 2020 will be called a “big lie”! It said in a statement last week.
The elections held by Trump’s party led to the loss of Republicans’ presidency and majority of seats in the Senate, while preventing them from gaining power in the House of Representatives. Nonetheless, as Republicans gamble on the energy and enthusiasm of their main supporters on the focus of next year’s midterm elections, Trump’s arrogance towards the party is on the rise.
When Trump makes fantastic claims about rigged elections, this gamble needs to stop suspicion.
The device was developed in Florida, and Republican Governor Ron DeSantis organized a fake signing ceremony at Fox News last Thursday, asking him to actually sign elsewhere. The bill introduces new restrictions on voting to solve problems that state officials admit that they have not yet discovered but may arise in the future.
Even if state leaders declared that Trump’s case was groundless, Republicans continued to impose restrictions on voting in multiple states and at the federal level.
“They cannot change the 2020 election, but they can use it as a prerequisite for restrictive new voting laws,” said Richard Hasen, an electoral law scholar from the University of California, Irvine.
