Alabama’s new Republican senator-elect has suggested he may join Representative Mo Brooks in challenging the results of the presidential election when the new Congress convenes in January, receiving praise from Donald Trump and his supporters.

Tommy Tuberville, the rookie senator set to be sworn in on 3 January, just three days before Congress convenes to certify the results of the 2020 election, indicated this week he may join a controversial last-ditch effort to overturn Mr Trump’s resounding defeat against President-elect Joe Biden.

Despite the Electoral College confirming Mr Biden’s win and both the Justice Department and Department of Homeland Security finding no credible evidence or mass voter fraud as the president has suggested, Mr Tuberville appeared to indicate he was in support of contesting the results.

Mr Tuberville was confronted by a liberal activist at a recent campaign stop for Georgia’s Republican senatorial candidates Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in the upcoming special elections, and asked if he would “fight to make this election right” in a recorded moment that went viral.

Appearing to believe that he was speaking to a supporter, the senator-elect responded: “You see what’s coming. You’ve been reading about it in the House. We’re going to have to do it in the Senate.”

Mr Tuberville said earlier to the crowd, “we’re going to get that all corrected,” seemingly referring to Mr Trump’s loss in the election.

“I’m gonna tell you: Don’t give up on [President Trump],” he said to cheers, adding: “Don’t give up on him.”

As the senator-elect’s comments made national news, Mr Trump was quick to respond with tweets praising the former Alabama football coach, who he described as a “great champion and man of courage” in a tweet that called on other Republican senators to “follow his lead.”

“We had a landslide victory, and then it was swindled away from the Republican Party – but we caught them,” Mr Trump claimed, reigniting his debunked conspiracy theories about his electoral defeat, adding: “Do something!”

In another tweet, Mr Trump said about Mr Tuberville: “Tommy will be more popular than ever before – a hero!”

Mr Brooks, the Republican congressman who said he would contest the results of the election when the new Congress convenes, would require at least one GOP senator to join him in those efforts in order to put the issue up to a vote.

But the idea of overturning Mr Trump’s defeat lacks support in the House and the Senate, where Republican leaders have called on lawmakers to move forward.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell urged his party not to join any challenge to the national vote in a call to Republican senators earlier this week. No senators on that call expressed an interest in joining Mr Brooks.

However, several Republicans have yet to indicate whether they will abstain from joining the challenge, from Ms Loeffler in Georgia to Josh Hawley in Missouri.

Yet Mr Trump continued to heap praise onto the incoming senator, retweeting a number of his supporters expressing their hopes that the vote could be overturned if Mr Tuberville joins Mr Brooks in the controversial move.

Donald Trump Bans The Mention Of Richard Nixon In Final Days

Published

By

The twice-impeached Trump repeatedly has made his policy clear on Nixon, the last president to resign.

The new He Who Must Not Be Named is the late President Richard Nixon ― at least in the final days of the Trump administration.
Soon-to-be-ex President Donald Trump has ordered advisers not to mention the name of Nixon, who resigned in 1974 under the cloud of the Watergate scandal, CNN reported Thursday. In separate conversations with aides, Trump declared a ban on any utterance of his disgraced predecessor ― even cursing out one adviser and demanding “never to bring up the ex-president ever again,” according to CNN.
Trump has shut down calls that he resign with just days to go in his own disgraced presidency. He told people that he didn’t trust that Vice President Mike Pence would pardon him like President Gerald Ford did when he replaced Nixon, CNN reported.

Carl Bernstein, whose Watergate reportage for The Washington Post helped lead to Nixon’s downfall, told Anderson Cooper on Thursday (watch the video above) that Trump’s final days appear to be nothing like Nixon’s ― resignation or not.

In his final days “Nixon was not a deluded, deranged, out-of-control president of the United States who has to be restrained in a constitutional straitjacket, which is really what is going on right now,” Bernstein said. “The military won’t heed his orders, we know something about that. People around him are trying to restrain him because they think he is dangerous.”

On the other hand, Nixon, “though he was drunk part of the time,” turned to introspection at what he had done ― something Trump would be unlikely to do, Bernstein said.

While Nixon deserved his fate, Bernstein had even harsher words for Trump, who finds his ruinous presidency indelibly stained by the Capitol riot he incited.

The reporter called him a “seditious president of the United States who inspired and celebrated a riot to burn down the Capitol, which is really what occurred. He encouraged it.”

It was Trump, ironically, who earlier in his presidency invoked Nixon’s name as a way of bragging about his strategy to subvert the Russia investigation. 

“I learned a lot from Richard Nixon,” Trump said in spectacularly un-self-aware commentary in May on “Fox & Friends.” “Don’t fire people.”

“I learned a lot. I study history,” he continued. “And the firing of everybody — I should’ve in one way, but I’m glad I didn’t, because look at the way it turned out. They’re all a bunch of crooks and they got caught.”
