Speculation on how the upcoming GOP-led challenge to the Electoral College vote-counting in Congress on Wednesday would go was the talk of Washington D.C. over the weekend.
According to The Epoch Times, former Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell was upbeat about President Donald Trump’s election challenge, even suggesting that the president is in a “really good position” for the upcoming fight, which will certainly make waves on January 6.
Pushing the allegation that widespread ballot and voter fraud took place in the 2020 election, Grenell, a close Trump ally, pointed out that Democrats have at least somewhat changed their tune with concern to whether or not there was actually any fraud in the 2020 election.
“The Democrats have moved from there’s not any fraud, to there’s not widespread [fraud], and now their new mantra is there is ‘not enough fraud to overturn’ the election,” Grenell said in a Newsmax interview, adding that “everybody knows this election was full of fraud.”
The former acting DNI under the Trump administration also highlighted the numerous failed attempts to convince courts across the country that voter fraud had taken place, adding that bringing that same evidence for all of Congress to see and debate on January 6 is finally a chance to have it all recognized.
“So I think that the rule of law and the process is that, on Wednesday, we get to showcase this to the politicians and see where the chips fall,” Grenell said.
Grenell was also quick to praise Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for joining the election challenge with 11 other Republican senators. Cruz’s announcement thrust the issue to the top of the media headlines, with much of the anti-Trump, mainstream media dedicating their weekends to speculating how the efforts are doomed to fail.
Many of Trump’s top allies in Congress have agreed to join the fight or at least expressed their support for such an initiative, however, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) both indicated that they’re staying out of the mix on Wednesday, each agreeing that the challenge strategy is not a good solution.
