WYOMING —On Nov. 20, Wyoming Congresswoman and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney released a statement urging the president to present evidence of election fraud or to concede the presidency.
Cheney said, “America is governed by the rule of law. The President and his lawyers have made claims of criminality and widespread fraud, which they allege could impact election results. If they have genuine evidence of this, they are obligated to present it immediately in court and to the American people. I understand that the President has filed more than thirty separate lawsuits. If he is unsatisfied with the results in those lawsuits, then the appropriate avenue is to appeal.”
She went on to suggest the president should concede saying, “If the President cannot prove these claims or demonstrate that they would change the election result, he should fulfill his oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States by respecting the sanctity of our electoral process.”
President Donald Trump responded directly to Cheney’s statement on Nov. 21 tweeting, “Sorry Liz, can’t accept the results of an election with hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes cast, enough to easily flip the Election. You’re just unhappy that I’m bringing the troops back home where they belong!”
Twitter flagged the tweet with the link, “this claim about election fraud is disputed.” The link brings users to more information about voter fraud, citing the rarity and sharing facts including, “Election officials at the Department of Homeland Security said that the November 3rd election was the most secure in American history.”
Former Vice President Joe Biden received 306 electoral votes, above the 270 needed to win. He also won the popular vote with, 51.1% or 79,853,558 votes compared to Trump’s, 232 electoral votes and 73,800,473 votes.
