Republican strategist Karl Rove said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that President Donald Trump will be convicted in the Senate with Republicans voting for impeachment if his defense is there was widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. …
[Rove:] “If it’s the Rudy Giuliani defense, there is a strong likelihood that more than 17 Republicans will [vote for impeachment] because essentially that argument is this was justified, the attack on the Capitol and the attempt to end the congressional hearing on certifying the election was justified because all these charges are true and frankly they aren’t.
It’s all about the foundational lie. All this because they rigged one little election more than usual … The snowball of lies and suppression required to cover up the lie of a free and fair election just keeps growing.
