That is, frankly, ridiculous. Trump lost fair and square. Joe Biden was legitimately elected president. Trump’s opinion is factually inaccurate. The end.
Another section of the Trump team’s response rejects the House’s assertion that, in the months prior to January 6, Trump “repeatedly issued false statements” in which he claimed the “election results were the product of widespread fraud.” The Trump team calls into question the legitimacy of pandemic-era changes in state and local election procedures, then argues: “Insufficient evidence exists upon which a reasonable jurist could conclude that the 45th President’s statements were accurate or not, and he therefore denies they were false.”
Another big lie
The Trump team’s response makes a third claim that is transparently false: “It is denied President Trump made any effort to subvert the certification of the results of the 2020 Presidential election.”
Subvert can mean overturn, overthrow, undermine — and whatever definition you choose, Trump clearly tried to do it.
But it’s telling that Trump won’t even stick to the truth when it’s apparent he’s probably going to win regardless.
