If you read CJR regularly, you know we have some very serious concerns when it comes to Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT).
I have maintained throughout this election that winning both seats in Georgia was imperative because we simply can no longer count on Romney to protect conservative interests in this country.
Romney proved those concerns right when he attacked Trump’s bid to ensure election integrity, and Trump absolutely blasted him for it.
Romney the RINO
Democrats continue to pitch the narrative that what Donald Trump is doing is somehow hurting the country.
We say that even though some may not like Trump’s approach, we need to expose whatever irregularities there are in our election now, regardless of how this election plays out.
There simply is no way we went from having, as Democrats put it, one of the most suspect elections in 2016, to the most secure election of all time.
The ONLY reason Democrats are saying this is because they believe they won the crowned jewel and they don’t want to undermine Joe Biden’s presidency (which is exactly what they did to Trump for the last four years).
Taking all that into consideration, it is rather disturbing to see Republicans like Romney side with Democrats on this…

Trump Pushes Back
There has been friction between Romney and Trump since the 2016 election.
That friction has only gotten worse since Romney lost his bid for an administration position and voted to impeach Trump.
After Trump heard about Romney’s comments, Trump went off against Romney on Friday morning…
RINO Mitt Romney should read this. I’m sure, however, that he feels he got slaughtering by Obama “fair and square”. https://t.co/GGZKfSAp8z

Romney, unfortunately, is not the only one siding with Democrats these days.
Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) recently stated, “Based on what I’ve read in their filings, when Trump campaign lawyers have stood before courts under oath, they have repeatedly refused to actually allege grand fraud — because there are legal consequences for lying to judges.
“President Trump lost Michigan by more than 100,000 votes, and the campaign and its allies have lost in or withdrawn from all five lawsuits in Michigan for being unable to produce any evidence.”
This all leads us back to a point made by Tucker Carlson and something we covered earlier today.
At this point, Trump is starting to lose support even among his most ardent followers simply because while the campaign is making a lot of allegations and claiming it has enough proof to turn this election upside down, nobody has seen any of it yet.
For the sake of his own followers, the Trump campaign is going to have to present his evidence sooner rather than later or risk alienating a large chunk of people that are backing him right now.
The worst possible thing the Trump campaign can do right now is give false hope or just flat-out mislead voters on what is happening in these elections.
If they continue to throw these allegations around and claim to have evidence only to never provide it, it will destroy any hopes Republicans have of keeping Trump’s base engaged long enough to flip the House in 2022 and win back the White House in 2024.
If these voters are deceived, they will all become disenfranchised again, and we simply cannot afford to have that happen right now.
