President Donald Trump is making a fool of congressional Republicans who continue to back him. Days after a dozen senators said they would reject the 2020 presidential election results over allegedly sincere concerns about fraud, Trump is all but openly asking people to commit fraud to throw the election to him.
Insisting—against all evidence—that he actually beat President-elect Joe Biden in Georgia, Trump asked state officials to help him find the votes he would need to make it official. “All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state,” Trump said on a Saturday phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and others. “So what are we going to do here, folks? I only need 11,000 votes. Fellas, I need 11,000 votes. Give me a break.”
