In a recent episode of his "Hold These Truths" podcast, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) told electoral reform advocate Nick Troiano that many of his pro-Donald Trump colleagues in the House know, that the accusations of a stolen 2020 presidential election are false but continue to push the story for political gain.
Crenshaw ripped into his colleagues for pushing the 'Trump is a victim' story, stating, "It was
always a lie. The whole thing was always a lie. And it was a lie meant to rile people up.”
According to the HuffPost's Lee Moran, Crenshaw continued, "I’ve talked about this ad nauseam, it really made me angry. Because I’m like, the promises you’re making that you’re going to challenge the electoral college and overturn the election—you had no intention of ever doing that."
Crenshaw went on to say that he believes many of his colleagues are simply afraid of Trump and his supporters. "They’re scared of him," Crenshaw said. "And so, they don’t wanna cross him, and they think that if they just go along with this big charade, that somehow he’ll be mollified, and he won’t primary them."
Crenshaw concluded by saying that he hopes his colleagues will have the courage to stand up to Trump and tell the truth about the election. "I wish more people would just have some goddamn backbone and courage and just tell people what actually happened," Crenshaw said. "The election wasn’t stolen."
It's good to see that at least some members of Congress are willing to speak out against Donald Trump and his lies about a stolen election. As Rep. Crenshaw points out, Trump's entire election fraud story was always a lie, meant only to rile up his supporters and keep them engaged in his political circus.
Unfortunately, too many members of Congress are too afraid to stand up to Trump, even when they know he is lying. It's time for more elected officials to find the courage to tell the truth and stand up for what's right. And that includes Democrats who need to start cleaning there houses of the DINO’s (Democrat in Name Only) if we hope to restore the public’s trust and confidence in our system of Government.
