Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) admitted Donald Trump had legitimately lost Wisconsin, stating that Republicans had turned the state blue.
Senator Ron Johnson blames Trump for the loss of Wisconsin in an undercover video.
EXCLUSIVE: Sen Ron Johnson blames Trump for the loss of Wisconsin in 2020 and tells me "the results are obviously not skewed". https://t.co/OeRkVkkVAN
Senator Johnson spoke to an uncover reporter when he said 51,000 in Wisconsin voted not for Trump but for other Republican candidates. Johnson said, "The results are obviously not skewed."
Johnson continued, “Together, Republicans got 1.661 million votes. 51,000 votes more than Trump got. Trump lost by 20,000. If Trump had got all the Republicans who voted for the Assembly candidates, he would have won. "
Johnson also admitted in a December 2020 phone conversation with the Wisconsin County Republican chairman that Joe Biden legitimately won the election, but it would be career suicide to cross Trump and his big lie.
Republicans know the big lie is BS and Donald Trump lost a legitimate election, but they are not going to proclaim it because it would practically end their political career.
The point they miss is that they would face backlash individually if they shouted the big lie, but if the party itself had collectively advocated democracy and gave Trump the boot, they would not be in the position to be they are today.
Ron Johnson sounded like a different person in this video.
Republicans like Johnson knowingly destroy democracy because they put self-interest above the country.
