Schumer says the “massive lie” concerning the election “is spreading like a most cancers” amongst Republicans

Speaking at a meeting of the regulatory committee on an electoral reform billSenate majority leader Chuck Schumer (DN.Y.) criticized Republicans for supporting former President Donald Trump “Big lie that the election was stolen.”

“Unfortunately, the big lie is spreading among Republicans like cancer. It envelops and consumes the Republican Party in both houses of Congress, ”said Schumer.

“Every Republican in this room knows Joe Biden won the election fair and place. Every Republican knows that Donald Trump committed the big lie. But the price of joining today’s Republican Party is silence in the face of demonstrable lies, ”he added.

“Liz Cheney was telling the truth to the Force, and she’s fired for that,” said Schumer.

Most important of Schumer’s concerns: Republicans working to limit Americans’ ability to vote.

Don’t tell us that these laws are about electoral fraud, ”he said, referring to the GOP’s claims that despite evidence to the contrary, electoral fraud is widespread. “In America you are more likely to be struck by lightning than you are to commit electoral fraud. These laws are about one thing and one thing: it will make it harder for Americans to vote.”

Schumer also came to defend Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), Who Republicans are willing to oust her position as Republican of House No. 3 for refusing to entertain Trump’s fictions.

“Liz Cheney was telling the truth to the Force, and she’s fired for that,” said Schumer.

The favorite to replace Cheney in her role as conference leader is Elise Stefanik, who received Trump’s approval.
