Mike Lee volunteers to talk with Jan. 6 Committee after texts about overturning election

Source: Raw Story

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) on Sunday volunteered to speak with the Jan. 6 Select Committee over text messages he sent to then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows about overturning the 2020 election.

During an interview on Fox News Sunday guest host Shannon Bream asked Lee about the criticism he has received for pursuing an alternate slate of electors that would reject the election of Joe Biden.

"First of all, I knew how bad Joe Biden would be as president," Lee said, defending his text messages. "I knew what a disaster he would be in the Oval Office."

-snip-

Lee said that he felt a responsibility to ask Meadows about the plan to overturn the election.

17. No. Not according to Wikipedia.

There is nothing in that Wikipedia entry about Lee being a Scientologist.

You should delete your post.

4. thanks for trying to protect the country, mike lee

("I knew how bad Joe Biden would be as president"

there is nothing wrong with trying to protect voters from their own votes

besides, i believe the constitution says if a senator whose initials are M L wants to overturn a presidential election they can absolutely give it a try regardless of what it entails

7. Remember now,

Mike Lee wanted Trump to replace James Comey with Merrick Garland. I have no idea why, just reporting the facts.

14. So tfg could fill his spot on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals...

Duh.

Of course... Lee also voted against Garland to come out of the Senate Judiciary Committee for AG:

Republican senators who voted against Garland were Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Lee of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Josh Hawley of Missouri, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, John Kennedy of Louisiana and Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee.

https://rollcall.com/2021/03/01/senate-judiciary-sends-garland-nomination-to-the-floor/

And voted against him when it hit the floor:

https://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_votes/vote1171/vote_117_1_00114.htm

Of course... None of those facts make it seem like Garland is a repug plant.

21. Lee knew how bad Joe Biden would be as president? Biden?

This is what he KNEW about Trump in 2016:

"I would like some assurances on where hes going to stand his ground. Id like some assurances that hes going to be a vigorous defender for the U.S. Constitution. ...that is not an unreasonable demand. - Mike Lee, July 2016.

08 Oct 2016, after the Access Hollywood tape came out that Trump called "a distraction:"

"Mr. Trump, I respectfully ask you, with all due respect to step aside. Step down. Allow someone else to carry the banner of these principles. - Mike Lee, 08 Oct. 2016.

Four years later, Mike Lee, "Man with Principles", would become the co-chair of Trumps 2020 re-election campaign in Utah.

Someone needs to stand behind Senator Mike Lee while he's talking and make jerk-off motions with their fist for the hearing-impaired. (H/T to the Rude Pundit.)

23. I knew what a disaster Shrub would be but I didn't try to overthrow the government.

I knew what a disaster Trump would be, but I didn't storm the Capitol, get people killed, to try and overthrow the government.

Since that's his excuse for his actions.

Though by disaster, he and I have very different definitions.
