Donald Trump continues to stir the pot about his loss last month…..
It’s ALWAYS been about ‘The Donald’…No one else….
There is no chance the report of the Electoral College result could be overturned….
It would take BOTH houses of Congress to do so and House Democrats and even McConnell won’t let the Senate dispute the outcome…
But McConnell IS worried that the Trump continued efforts to rile things up , as he done for 4 years will just make things look shabby for the Republicans as Trump walks out the door and leaves ….
Of course while McConnell might want to moving ahead with talking about the legislation just done?
Donald Trump is STILL hogging the stage….
And keeping top level Republicans separated from Trump supporters who are still sending the billionaire money he can take with him leaving the Presidency…
McConnell and others ARE trying to get their party back….
It will NOT be easy….
Trump likes the money part…Always DID….
National Republicans are desperate to avoid a floor fight in Congress over the certification of the Electoral College vote next month, believing it would be horrible politics to continue waging what most recognize to be a hopeless battle to overturn the outcome of the election.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has intervened, asking his members not to join Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) or any other House members looking to object to the results on Jan. 6, when Congress meets to certify the Electoral College count.
President Trump is waging a pressure campaign to get senators to revolt. Incoming Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.), who will be sworn in Jan. 3, has said he’ll join the floor fight and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who has said he believes the election was “stolen” from Trump, is always a wild card.
Republican strategists are hoping McConnell can quash the insurgency, believing the debate over Trump’s refusal to accept the outcome of the 2020 election is tearing the party apart ahead of the Jan. 5 runoff elections in Georgia that will determine the balance of power in the Senate.
They say it’s bad for the GOP’s efforts to win back swing suburban voters if the party is associated with erratic flamethrowers, such as pro-Trump attorneys Sidney Powell, Lin Wood and Rudy Giuliani.
And after an election in which the GOP became more diverse, Republican strategists are furious over the harm they say is being done with Black voters, as the Trump campaign seeks to have the vote totals thrown out in Atlanta, Milwaukee, Detroit and elsewhere….
