Fetterman said on MSNBC, “I know he made similar calls to the Republican leadership in Pennsylvania. And it doesn’t matter. Nothing will change it. That’s it. This is a mathematical certainty. All that sound and anger will end with Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20th. We have refuted this line by line. They were shredded down from the Supreme Court by every court. And they don’t just tear them apart. They stack up unanimously. Which team in American history was ever 1 in 59 and still trying to buckle up and act like they weren’t the greatest running joke since the New York Jets. “
It was believed that Trump’s illegal efforts weren’t limited to the state of Georgia. To let. Governor Fetterman confirmed that Trump had tried to illegally reverse election results in all swing states. It is illegal for an elected official, including the President, to use his power to disrupt and alter the results of an election. There is no doubt that Trump has asked Republican officials across the country to find votes for him in the five swing states Joe Biden won.
A criminal complaint has been forwarded to the FBI, and it is increasingly looking like Trump may face prosecution for attempting a coup against democracy.
