On Fox News Thursday night, Tucker Carlson — usually a staunch defender of President Donald Trump — scorned the performance of Sidney Powell, an attorney for the president’s campaign who alleged widespread voter fraud and conspiracy theories during a press conference earlier in the day.
“What Powell was describing would amount to the single greatest crime in American history,” said Carlson. “Millions of votes stolen in a day. Democracy destroyed. The end of our centuries-old system of self-government, not a small thing … we took Sidney Powell seriously, we have no intention of fighting her, we’ve always respected her work. We simply wanted to see the details. How could you not want to see them?”
“So we invited Sidney Powell on this show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week, actually, and listened quietly the whole time,” said Carlson. “But she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests, polite requests, not a page. When we kept pressing she got angry and told us to stop contacting her. When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they told us Powell has never given them any evidence either, nor did she provide any today at the press conference … she never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another.”

If the GOP thinks Trump is ushering in a crisis — why did they support him for the last year?: Bulwark editor
Veteran newsman Carl Bernstein revealed that there are 21 Republicans too scared to reveal they think President Donald Trump should have reached the end of his options to fight the 2020 election. Still, most of them aren't speaking out publicly and they spent the past year enabling Trump, knowing full well that this is who he is.
Writing for the Bulwark on Monday, Jonathan V. Last cited editors of the National Review who are calling Trump's behavior “disgraceful” and “the most outlandish and irresponsible performance ever by a group of lawyers representing a president of the United States.”
‘You can’t vote no’: GOP canvasser gets schooled at Michigan certification meeting
A Republican member of Michigan's Board of State Canvassers was confronted by a former state elections director over attempts to delay certification of the state's election results without a vote.
"I think, first of all, the answer is, of course, you can't vote 'no,'" Chris Thomas told Board member Norm Shinkle. "There is no 'no' in this circumstance. Each of you play a necessary role -- you're at the pinnacle of Michigan's democracy -- you're the endgame of the statewide elections for 2020."
Thomas went on to say that after 5.5 million people have exercised their right to vote, it's the Board's responsibility to make the results "which are already widely known, official."
