Romney dings Trump’s election legal challenge in late-night tweet

Goeie more en welkom by Fox News First. You made it to the weekend … Now here’s what you need to know as you start your day

No love lost between Sen. Mitt Romney and President Trump
Sy. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, took to Twitter late Thursday night to launch a dramatic shot across the bow of President Trump’s legal challenge of the 2020 verkiesing.

Romney tweeted, “Having failed to make even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy before any court of law, the President has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials to subvert the will of the people and overturn the election. It is difficult to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American President.”

Romney’s office told Fox News after the tweet that “it goes without saying that applying political pressure to local officials not to certify legally cast ballots is outside the bounds of any regular legal challenge,” which is a reference to reports that Trump reached out to two GOP canvassers in Michigan’s Wayne County after a tense deadlock to certify ballots there. (The GOP canvassers appeared on “Die Ingraham-hoek” on Thursday night.)

Romney and Trump have not had a good relationship. Romney said he did not vote for Trump in 2020 but did vote to convict him for abusing presidential powers earlier this year at the president’s impeachment trial. Trump has called Romney a “LOSER,” and has mocked him over his 2012 election loss to former President Obama.

Romney’s tweet came after Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney, made the case for Trump’s legal challenge at a fiery news conference on Capitol Hill. He told reporters, “What I’m describing to you is a massive fraud.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden is the projected winner in the contest, but the Trump 2020 Campaign is contesting those calls, raising concerns in several battleground states. CLICK FOR MORE ON OUR TOP STORY.

Sean Hannity, host of ‘Hannity,’ reminded viewers Thursday night that President-elect Joe Biden was let off easy by the mainstream media during the campaign and given a pass while hiding from the coronavirus in his basement. Intussen, the same media pummeled President Trump “every single minute” of every day, Hannity said.

“So it’s no surprise that so-called journalists now have no interest in looking into cases of American citizens saying that these are serious abuses of power here," hy het gesê. “They got the outcome they wanted. … They don’t really care what happened.”
