Shamelessly doing his part to erode American democracy, Congressman Cline has proclaimed his support for conspiracy theorist extraordinaire Sidney Powell, an attorney for Donald Trump, in her delusional effort to overturn the results of the 2020 Presidential election.
According to an AP News Fact Check:
Trump attorney Sidney Powell spun fictional tales of election systems flipping votes, German servers storing U.S. voting information and election software created in Venezuela “at the direction of Hugo Chavez” — the late Venezuelan president who died in 2013. She also said Trump beat Democrat Joe Biden “by a landslide,” which he decidedly didn’t — Biden was the clear winner.
Powell’s claims are so absurd that even reliable Trump supporters like Fox News’s Tucker Carlson are calling her out.
Carlson said he repeatedly reached out to Powell for evidence of her claim and invited her on the show. He said her claim “could amount to the single greatest crime in American history” if it were true.
“When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her,” Carlson said. “When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they told us Powell has never given any evidence either. Nor did she provide any today.”
But Powell insists: “The entire election, frankly, in all the swing states should be overturned and the legislatures should make sure that the electors are selected for Trump”
Cline’s willingness to follow Powell down this particular rabbit hole tells you all you need to know about his dead-end loyalty to Donald Trump– who, for his information, will no longer be President as of 12:01 p.m. on January 20, 2021.
