“Georgia Republican Secretary of State blasts Trump telling him this has gone too far.
As Republicans in Georgia pleaded Tuesday with President Trump to stop making baseless claims about the election being stolen from him, GOP leaders in Washington remained silent about the avalanche of lies, conspiracy theories and open threats of violence made by the president’s allies.
“The future will take care of itself,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell when asked why he had not condemned Trump’s unproven claims. “The Electoral College is going to meet December 14th, there will be an inauguration January 20th.”
But in Georgia, an official in the office of Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger delivered a passionate rebuke of Trump and those in the GOP who have stood by and said nothing as the president has misled millions of Americans about the election, sparking death threats against Raffensperger and his family, as well as against rank-and-file election workers.
