President Donald Trump called GOP leaders “pathetic” in a series of tweets after a group of Republican Pennsylvania lawmakers announced that 200,000 more votes were counted than voters in the 2020 US election.
The President pointed out how Pennsylvania State Representative Frank Ryan “found troubling discrepancies after an analysis of Election Day data,” adding that the 200,000 vote discrepancy gives him “far more votes” than needed to win the state.
“…not to mention hundreds of thousands of votes in other categories which increase my already big lead into a landslide. All other Swing States show likewise,” added President Trump.
President Trump was quick to criticize GOP leaders, declaring that “WE NEED NEW & ENERGETIC REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP. This can not stand.”
This comes as key Republican leaders have refused to fight for election integrity amid the evidence of voter fraud in the 2020 US election.
Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-SD) have made efforts to pressure Senator-Elect Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) to ignore his constitutional duty to challenge electoral slates in states where credible accusations of widespread voter fraud and ballot tampering are evident, as National File reported:
Sources close to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), say he will “reach out” to Tuberville in an attempt strong arm the Senator-Elect into abandoning his party’s president and to coax him into remaining silent in any challenge to the Electoral College vote.
McConnell and the establishment Republican apparatus in the Senate have telegraphed that they would rather betray their party’s sitting President by not challenging tainted Electoral College votes from Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia, and Arizona, than to engage in a “messy floor fight” over finalizing the results of the Electoral College vote.
“Can you imagine if the Republicans stole a Presidential Election from the Democrats – All hell would break out,” said President Trump. “Republican leadership only wants the path of least resistance. Our leaders (not me, of course!) are pathetic. They only know how to lose!”
President Trump noted that some Republican Senators and members of Congress “forgot” that he got them elected in the first place.
