On Ted Lasso, determinations, and the GOP's endgame
January 2, 2021 (Heather Cox Richardson)
I’ve been wondering what the endgame is for the GOP as they continue to contest the election results.
Apparently, I just needed to wait for historian Heather Cox Richardson to break it down. She ties these current smears and baseless investigations as a continuation of the Benghazi investigation, which undoubtedly weakened Secretary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
It’s clear that their endgame is to sow enough distrust to de-legitimize any Democratic candidate or elected President. It might help them stay in power in the short term, but it’s a loss for our republic and the rule of law.
