This week was a tough one for the President and his supporters, both around the country and in Congress as well.
As the Commander in Chief continues his attempts to prove that widespread voter fraud stole the 2020 election from him, there are Republican allies of Trump who are slowly backing away from the spotlight. They see an inevitable flashpoint on the horizon in which either Joe Biden is inaugurated, or all hell breaks loose, and they certainly don’t want to be tethered to the latter.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is the latest GOP figure to drift away from his MAGA moorings, not only openly acknowledging Biden’s win, but also warning the rest of his party not to interfere with the electoral process as it comes through the Capitol.
Senator-elect Tommy Tuberville isn’t making any promises.
Earlier this week, Sen.-elect Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) suggested he could challenge the Electoral College votes from several states in the U.S. Senate when Congress meets to certify the November 3 election outcome, which had been declared a victory for Joe Biden.
In a video posted by “Undercurrent” executive producer Lauren Windsor on Twitter, Tuberville hinted at the possibility while on the campaign trail for Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) in Georgia.
“Well, you see what’s coming,” he said. “You’ve been reading about it in the House. We’re going to have to — we’re going to have to do it in the Senate.”
Tuberville clarified his remarks some hours later, making it clear that he hadn’t made any binding pact to challenge those results but that it may be considered his “due diligence” to do so.
