Trump Rebukes FBI, DOJ, Congress And Supreme Court In Morning Twitter Tantrum


President Trump spent part of his Saturday morning rebuking federal officials who have not helped him win a second term since losing the election and Congress for stimulus negotiations.

The president falsely referred to the “Rigged & Stolen” election and said that if such acts occurred to a Democratic presidential candidate, “the Democrat Senators would consider it an act of war and fight to the death,” while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the rest of the Republican senators “do NOTHING.”

Trump and a handful of Republican House members created a plan to object when the Electoral College votes are counted and certified in front of Congress. For the objection to move forward, it needs a senator’s backing, and while one or two have implied they would, McConnell has recognized Joe Biden as president-elect and told his caucus not to sign on to the challenge.

Trump also criticized the “’Justice’ Department” and the FBI, claiming they “have done nothing about the 2020 Presidential Election Voter Fraud … despite overwhelming evidence” and said that “they should be ashamed.”

Neither the FBI nor the Justice Department has found evidence of election fraud that reached a magnitude affecting the outcome of the race. Trump also turned his wrath to the Supreme Court, which he called “totally incompetent and weak,” saying “they don’t want to see” the “absolute PROOF” that his campaign has.

The Trump campaign and GOP-adjacent groups have sought to bring lawsuits calling the integrity of the election into question. They have also alleged that states violated their constitutions by passing certain voting-related measures designed to make it easier and safer for people to vote amid the coronavirus pandemic. The cases have widely been dismissed, and many of the theories alleged have been debunked. The Supreme Court has not taken any election-related case for lack of standing.

Trump also took a shot at special counsel John Durham. Durham, the top federal prosecutor in Connecticut, is heading up a criminal inquiry into the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation.

“Where the hell is the Durham Report?” he said. “They spied on my campaign, colluded with Russia (and others), and got caught. Read the Horowitz Reports about Comey & McCabe. Even the Fake News [New York Times] said ‘bad’. They tried it all, and failed, so now they are trying to steal the election!”

He turned his attention to the stimulus negotiations in Congress. Both parties agreed to a massive spending and coronavirus aid package, which Trump said he wouldn’t sign at the eleventh hour. Trump’s contention with the bill was that it included billions of dollars to foreign countries while only providing $600 to people for economic relief. The president demanded foreign spending get cut and the funding for those in the U.S. get raised to $2,000 a person. Congress has yet to come up with a solution.

Trump said, “I simply want to get our great people $2000, rather than the measly $600 that is now in the bill. Also, stop the billions of dollars in ‘pork.'”
