Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton went after Republicans who have supported President Donald Trump’s public statements and legal challenges regarding the results of the election.
“The election was not close. There was no evidence of fraud. The states have certified the results,” Hillary Clinton said in a tweet Thursday. “Yet Trump continues to try to overturn the election at the expense of our democracy.”
“The emperor has no clothes,” she continued. “Republican electeds who continue to humor him have no spines.”
President-elect Joe Biden was projected the winner of the 2020 election by multiple media outlets in early November. Trump and his allies have since alleged that widespread voter fraud and improper counting of absentee ballots tipped the results against him.
Trump took to Social Media multiple times to claim that the “election was rigged” following his projected loss. A majority of Republican voters also agreed there were irregularities and Trump was the rightful winner.
Donald Trump’s campaign has introduced more than 50 election-related lawsuits, per The New York Times, mostly challenging the results in key battleground states that Biden won overnight – Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. But his team has lost or withdrawn virtually all of them, according to Forbes.
Texas Republicans petitioned the Supreme Court to take up a case Tuesday challenging the certification of election results in several battleground states.
