Representative Cori Bush (D-MO) Tuesday on MSNBC’s “All In” accused her Republican colleagues in the House of Representatives of being involved in a “racist attempt to overturn an election” by voting to object to the electors and certify President-elect Joe Biden’s win.
Bush said, “Our Republican colleagues chose to do the work, to try to overturn the 2020 election. And on top of that, incite this insurrection that happened on January the 6th. There is no way that we can sit back and allow that to happen and just say, ‘Oh, but those are our colleagues, you know, we shouldn’t do anything, let’s just work on Donald Trump.’ Uh-uh-uh-uh, Donald Trump is not the only problem. We have to work on getting Donald Trump out, but we cannot allow his minions, we cannot allow his friends, we cannot allow his cousins to stay in place. Those doing his bidding have to go as well. You want to abide by the Constitution. If you want to abide by your sworn oath, it’s time for you to go.”
