Republican figure Kari Lake recently addressed the ongoing controversy surrounding the 2020 election during an appearance on Steve Bannon’s War Room on Real America’s Voice. This discussion came in response to former President Trump’s recent indictment on speech-related charges in Washington DC.
During the interview, Lake asserted that the current conflict in America can be characterized as a battle between “We the People” and a “tyrannical” government. She firmly stated, “Well, yeah, it’s pretty obvious that it’s we the people versus our tyrannical government right now. And there’s only one candidate who’s willing to stand up to that swamp or the tyranny, and that’s President Donald J. Trump.”
Lake further emphasized her belief that the 2020 presidential election was fraudulent, suggesting that the January 6 riots were orchestrated to divert attention away from the corrupt certification of the election results. According to Lake, “All that January 6 was a staged riot to cover up the fact that they certified a fraudulent election.”
Expressing her opposition to the idea of impeaching Joe Biden, Lake proposed revisiting the alleged election fraud from 2020 instead. She argued, “If we just go back and deal with this fraudulent election and what happened in 2020, we don’t have to impeach him, because he really isn’t, in my opinion, and many others and you look at the evidence, the true president. Why don’t we decertify 2020 [election], and that’s the way we deal with it?”
Lake took to Twitter to further vocalize her stance, tweeting, “Impeaching the illegitimate occupant in the White House isn’t necessary here. We have all of the evidence from the fraudulent election. Let’s decertify 2020. Save our legislators the trouble.”
This interview and Lake’s subsequent social media posts reflect a growing sentiment among some Republicans that the 2020 election was marred by fraud and irregularities. While these claims have been thoroughly investigated and debunked by multiple courts, election officials, and independent audits, individuals like Lake continue to hold firm in their belief that the election was illegitimate.
It is important to note that these allegations have been widely refuted, and the Biden administration has consistently maintained that the 2020 election was secure and accurately reflected the will of the American people. Despite this, the debate surrounding the election results persists in certain political circles.
As the country moves forward, it is crucial to foster a productive and constructive conversation about election integrity, allowing for evidence-based discussions and transparent examination of any legitimate concerns. However, it is equally important to acknowledge the verified and certified results of the 2020 election and ensure that democratic processes are respected and upheld.
