CNN’s John Berman says that while many Republicans say they want to move on from the 2020 election, former President Donald Trump just can’t let go of his election lie and keeps wanting to re-litigate the election.
Republican elected officials are still covering for Trump by repeating the lie that the election was stolen from him. In this latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains why these Republicans – who know that the election was not in fact stolen – are continuing to go along with this, and what it says about the current affairs of the GOP.
House Republicans should “anticipate a vote” on GOP Conference Chair, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wrote in a new letter. The vote is expected to end with Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) being ousted over her continued opposition to former President Donald Trump.
