House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) ripped President Donald Trump’s effort to challenge the 2020 election saying it “borders on treason.”
He also trashed Rudy Giuliani’s press conference yesterday.
“He is undermining the very essence of democracy, which is: You go to the poll, you vote and the people decide. There’s no doubt that the people decided,” Hoyer said of Trump.
“I think this borders on treason,” added Steny Hoyer. He wasn’t the only one not happy with Rudy and Trump’s presser yesterday:
“Having failed to make even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy before any court of law, the President has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials to subvert the will of the people and overturn the election,” Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said in a statement.
“It is difficult to imagine a worse, more undemocratic act by a sitting American President,” Mitt added.
Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) also trashed Rudy saying “wild press conferences erode public trust.”
“So no, obviously Rudy and his buddies should not pressure electors to ignore their certification obligations under the statute we are a nation of laws, not tweets,” Sasse said.
“President Trump lost Michigan by more than 100,000 votes and the campaign and its allies have lost in or withdrawn all five lawsuits in Michigan for being unable to produce any evidence.”
