Christie, a Trump confidant who helped prepare for the debate, said the Republican Party should focus on trying to win Georgia’s two run-offs on Jan. 5 to secure a Senate majority instead of continuing with failed legal challenges of election results.
“The rear-view mirror needs to be torn off,” Christie said.
Late Saturday night, after a federal judge rejected Trump’s legitimate attempt to invalidate all Pennsylvania votes, Sen. Patrick J. Tommy (R-Pa.) Congratulated Biden and newly elected Vice President Kamala D. Harris on their victory and encouraged the president to accept the result.
“President Trump has exhausted all credible legal options to challenge the outcome of the Pennsylvania presidential race,”
That result, Toomi noted, followed Georgia’s certification on Friday for Biden’s victory there, and Michigan GP leaders rejected efforts to block certification of Biden’s clear victory there.
“I congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice-President Kamala Harris on their victory. “Both are dedicated civil servants and I will pray for them and for our country,” Toomi said.
Republicans in the Senate generally avoided commenting on Trump’s actions, with more than 40 not responding to a request for comment Thursday and Friday about the president’s efforts to get Michigan lawmakers to reject Biden’s apparent victory there by more than 150,000 votes.
Republicans are aware that any alleged lack of loyalty to the president could prompt him to attack deserters – just as Trump did on Saturday night when he called Judge Bran “a product of Senator Pat” No Tariffs “Toomi.”
However, even Trump supporters who support the challenge of law have said that Biden is likely to win and that the General Services administration must allow the Democratic Transition team access to the best briefings so that they can be hit. on the ground on January 20.
“I just think you need to start this process, give the incoming administration all the time they need,” Senator Kevin Kramer (RN.D.) told NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday.
Kramer said the transition process should have started at least a week ago, but said Trump’s legal team could continue to push for their actions in the states and provide real evidence of electoral fraud.
This, Kramer said, is “just a legal process.”
However, Christie said that Trump’s lawyers made their fantastic statements only at press conferences or other media appearances. “They don’t do it in court,” the Republican presidential candidate said in 2016, suggesting they were afraid to swear such unfounded arguments before federal judges.
“That must mean that the evidence doesn’t exist,” Christie said.
