President Trump has called for an investigation into widespread voter fraud. He has stated he has evidence for the claim and will release it when the time is right.
Naturally Democrats and the media have excoriated him over the claim. Now, it’s time for the RINOs to throw a public wrench in Trump’s plans.
From The Hill:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Sunday said he doesn’t want to spend federal funds to investigate what President Trump claimed was massive voter fraud in the 2016 presidential election.
While McConnell says there is voter fraud, he doesn’t believe it’s as widespread as Trump claims or requires federal intervention. He says that cleaning up voter rolls is best left to the states.
“Election fraud does occur,” he told CNN’s “State of the Union.” But he added that “there’s no evidence that occurred in such a significant number that it would have changed the presidential election.”
“I don’t think we ought to spend any federal money investigating that. I think the states can take a look at this issue. Many of them have tried to tighten their voter rolls, tried to purge people who are dead,” he added.
Trump claimed during a meeting at the White House with congressional leaders earlier this month that he lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton because of 3 million to 5 million votes by illegal immigrants.
The president announced on Jan. 25 that he would ask for “a major investigation” into voter fraud, including a review of people who are registered to vote in two states and people who are deceased but still on voter rolls.
It’s amazing to me how Republicans are so quick to voice public descent and disagreement with their party leader. As though it will win them points with their constituents. Most likely it will do the opposite and create resentment and a feeling to remove these incompetent republicans.
Time to fill the Congress with Trump Republicans.
