Donald Trump has continued his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, but an expert on how Washington, D.C. works believes you should sleep well tonight.
On Saturday morning, Trump falsely tweeted that President-elect Joe Biden, "didn't win the Election. He lost all 6 Swing States, by a lot. They then dumped hundreds of thousands of votes in each one, and got caught."
Saturday afternoon, Trump falsely tweeted, "The lie of the year is that Joe Biden won!"
Biden did win.
Despite Trump's threats, former Director of the Office of Government Ethics Walter Shaub explained on Saturday evening why he is "not afraid."

We should encourage smart people with strong ethical values to go into government and serve their country where they are most needed. And we should thank our lucky stars that so many have already answered that call. Their fidelity to the oath is why I'll sleep well tonight. /16
