    They're doing their big lie in advance it seems.
    These Democrats?

    Republicans in and out of Congress continue to prop up the lie that the last election was stolen from Trump and continue to make challenging certified election results routine. After 147 Republicans in Congress voted not to certify the 2020 election results, legislators in four states have launched so-called election “audits” of their own. Election deniers are running to be the top elections officials in at least 12 states in 2022. And Trump’s most vociferous supporters in the party are pushing legislation in statehouses this year to make it easier to force partisan audits in future elections up and down the ballot.

    I see Paul is falling in line. Never too early to throw doubt on election results despite those elections being over 9 months away!

    Hey...I quote my sources.
    And if you read the article (I know, hard for you guys; I understand) it's talking about Republicans are questioning election processes and looking to put people into place to gum up the works.
    Which makes sense since he's been pushing the Big Lie since 2015.

    And I feel confident you guys don't think I'm a Republican...although many of my best friends here are.
    Also, most of them are embarrassed by the former president...which is understandable.

    If recent history is any gauge, the House will go to opposite Party of the incumbent president.

    Ok, so some Republicans are setting parameters for audits? Yes, they are. Not as bad a Biden attacking Our Constitution and Our (States and The People) Elections on Nov.

    Please tell me you have a Republican not named Jane Timken in mind. Any Republican whose main priority is pacifying Baby Trump is dead on arrival on my ballot. All 16 of them.

    I actually agree with the quote from Jamie Raskin in this article Paul linked - sort of

    “This is a disturbing potential implication of the electoral paranoia and lunacy that has been unleashed on the land by Donald Trump,” said Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin, who sits on both the House Administration Committee and the committee investigating Jan. 6. “Anyone can try to create a conspiracy and spread it like wildfire on the internet without any facts at all.”
    Second point- Is he referring to a Buzzfeed article from the 2016 election? Or is he referring to voter suppression in general which has been used by Democrats in recent decades? Yes, inquiring minds want to know…

    First point- And yes, dumbass Trump magnified the stealing of elections issues, but certainly didn’t create it.

    In an 8-to-1 ruling the Supreme Court said Trump can't claim executive privilege over documents sought by those investigating the insurrection.
