I told you this day would come. Our Iowa Republican delegation made history as it was the only one in the country to include multiple Republicans in the House AND at least one in the Senate (we have two there) to not have a single GOP member vote against certifying the 2020 Presidential Election results.
There was, and in my opinion still is, plenty of reason for concern and doubt when it comes to the results of the 2020 Presidential Election. I am not going to go through those concerns. Even if people do not agree with the concerns, they should at least be able to note the concerns existed.
Early in Biden’s presidency, even a significant number of Democrat voters believed the election was stolen.
Yet not a single Republican in Congress from Iowa — Randy Feenstra, Chuck Grassley, Joni Ernst, Mariannette Miller-Meeks or Ashley Hinson — had the courage to object to certifying the election results. Nobody was asking them to overturn an election, we were just asking for two weeks to investigate. To ask questions and to get answers.
All of them gave their stamp approval to the Biden presidency by voting to certify the election. And, keep in mind, at least a couple of them publicly said there was fraud in the election.
And when all this happened, I said just wait, they’re going to claim they fought the radical Biden agenda every step of the way — even though Grassley himself said he was looking forward to the Biden agenda.
Regardless, today I sat and listened to letters from Feenstra and Grassley where they decried the Biden agenda and the destruction being done to our country. But the destruction started on Jan. 6 — when they voted to certify the election results. That was their chance. That was their time.
And they passed.
So forgive me if I’m unconvinced that they’re the conservative champions and fighters we need in D.C. today. They might be willing to tell us they are, but when they had an opportunity to show us, they whiffed.
