Congressman cites Trump's efforts to overturn election in announcing decision to quit GOP

Mitchell, who is retiring at the end of this session of Congress, says he fears that the House GOP leadership's participation in the outgoing President's conspiracy theories and attempts to disenfranchise millions of American voters to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's victory could cause "long-term harm to our democracy."
It is "unacceptable for political candidates to treat our election system as though we are a third-world nation and incite distrust of something so basic as the sanctity of our vote," Mitchell wrote in his letter, which was sent Monday.

You guys sound like Mike Bloomberg when he said he could teach anybody how to farm in a few minutes.  Just throw some seeds in the ground and water it.

My uncle is a blue collar welder.  He would be one of your uneducated "white guy" deplorables.  He's probably more intelligent than most of the people here.  He's started multiple business and has done very well for himself.  The class he associates with has been left behind while people swapping pieces of paper on wall street are making a killing.

Isn't Trump the epitome of the people swapping pieces of paper on wall street...making a killing...even while he's in office as President!  Cheers!

No argument there.  I've never defended Trump.  I don't like the guy.  All of these arguments devolve back to "Trump is a terrible person".

His lack of character is the root cause of why he's a terrible president.

It will be interesting to see Trumpís influence on the Republican Party going forward. age might make it really easy for the Dems to win the next election unless they screw up of course,- the reason being that he has enough loyal backers in his own party to support him come heíll and high water, but not enough to win a large enough numbers of voters after having seen him in action for 4 years. S time goes on, I expect Trump to get even more riled up, abrasive and extreme and unless the Republicans can mount an effective challenger to displace him and his supporters with someone more agreeable, they could easily lose another election.

But who knows, perhaps we all go to the deep end which could be in either extreme direction, but I hope not.
