Ben Sasse (R-NE) has an excellent and long statement on Facebook that slams "Republican" charges of voter fraud, and it's appreciated. It deserves praise, and good too that he has occasionally been critical of Trump. Know, as well, that this lunacy he describes at length didn't just pop up and come from nowhere, but it's what the GOP in Congress has been building too for four years.
You can read the statement here.
Republicans in the Senate had their chance to convict Trump of impeachment, but except for Mitt Romney they all voted to give him a pass. ALL. They wouldn't even allow evidence!
For all the good moments a few GOP Senators did have -- and again, good for them, including Sasse -- the Republican members of Congress in their entirety overall enabled Trump for four years and are all complicit.
"Dad, you're driving much too fast!!!" is a good thing to say at times on a cross-country road trip, but when he's driving too fast the whole way, at a certain point those in the car have to get him to pull over so you can take the keys away.
