Trump Accuses McConnell, Others In Gop Of Failing To Fight For Him

By

President Trump on Saturday accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans of failing to fight on his behalf regarding the outcome of the 2020 presidential election – which Trump continues to argue was “Rigged & Stolen.”

The president’s latest claims came just 25 days ahead the scheduled Jan. 20 inauguration of Democrat Joe Biden, following the Nov. 3 election and a Dec. 14 vote by the Electoral College that all but confirmed Biden’s victory. Only a Jan. 6 session on Capitol Hill – at which lawmakers are expected to accept the election results – stands between Trump and the conclusion of his time in the White House.

It didn’t have to be that way, Trump suggested Saturday, alleging that McConnell and Senate Republicans haven’t worked hard enough to assure him a second term.

“If a Democrat Presidential Candidate had an Election Rigged & Stolen, with proof of such acts at a level never seen before, the Democrat Senators would consider it an act of war, and fight to the death,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Mitch & the Republicans do NOTHING, just want to let it pass. NO FIGHT!”

In another tweet, the president also accused the Justice Department and FBI of abandoning him. Attorney General William Barr, who led the DOJ, served his final day in the post Wednesday after announcing his resignation.

“The ‘Justice’ Department and the FBI have done nothing about the 2020 Presidential Election Voter Fraud, the biggest SCAM in our nation’s history, despite overwhelming evidence,” Trump asserted. “They should be ashamed. History will remember. Never give up. See everyone in D. C. on January 6th.”

In a previous tweet Dec. 19, Trump had invited his supporters to attend a “Big protest in D. C.” on the day that Congress is scheduled to accept the election results.

“Be there, will be wild!” Trump wrote at the time.

In subsequent tweets Saturday, Trump railed about a lack of results from Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe, and derided the U. S. Supreme Court as being “totally incompetent and weak” regarding his allegations of election fraud.
