As President Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory continue to be thrown out of court, a Republican congressman in one of the states that Trump is trying to undermine voters’ will tells him it’s “over.”
Representative Fred Upton (R-MI), who called the attempt by Michigan Republicans to pass legislation to repeal the election results in the state, is a “dead end”, appeared on CNN on Sunday morning to speed up the campaign of the president for pressure to get Michigan. legislators to award him the state.
“You know what? Voters have spoken,”
Upton noted that although the president had personally invited Republican lawmakers to the White House, Michigan lawmakers withdrew from the meeting, stating unequivocally that Biden’s victory in Michigan would remain. He also rejected another attempt by the Republican National Committee and the Republican Party in Michigan to delay voter verification, saying the GOP should “return to power.”
CNN presenter Dana Bash went on to broadcast a video of Trump’s lawyer Sidney Powell, calling for the results in all swing states to be “repealed and for the legislature to ensure voters are elected to Trump,” citing an unfounded conspiracy centered around voting software. millions of votes.
“You are in a swaying state. When you hear the president’s lawyer say he wants to overturn these results, what is your reaction? Bash wondered aloud.
“You know, voters talked,” the veteran congressman said. “And here in Michigan, it’s not a razor-thin margin. That is 154,000 votes. You have to let the voices stand. ”
“The process has been going on for a long time,” Upton concluded. “It works. And there are no problems with fraud anywhere. 154,000 votes. In my race committee in the county, it was a draw of the dead even. They had to pull to see who won because it was exactly the same. 154,000 votes are,” he concluded. . “
Gradually, more Republicans are signaling to the president that his gambit to undo Biden’s decisive victory in the election is in vain and it is time to begin the transition to an incoming administration. Over the weekend, Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) said Trump had “exhausted all credible legal options to challenge the outcome of the Pennsylvania presidential race” and that “he must accept the election result and facilitate the presidential transition process.” “
