(TruthAndLiberty.com) – On Sunday the White House slammed House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) over his refusal to accept that the 2020 presidential election had not been stolen.
In a recent interview on ABC News’s “This Week” the Republican Representative refused to reply when asked repeatedly whether the 2020 presidential election had been stolen.
In response to this stance Andrew Bates, the spokesperson of the White House stated that it was time to stop pushing forward a “dangerous conspiracy theory” that has been disproved repeatedly. He added that this conspiracy theory has done “unprecedented” damage to the United States and that more than 80 federal judges have debunked these claims. He further pointed out that even national security officials from the Trump administration have stated that this was an inaccurate theory.
Bates also pointed out that this was a time when Democrats and Republicans in Congress needed to collaborate in “good faith” and that it was not the time to continue fueling a conspiracy theory that had led to the Capitol being attacked and had caused division among the American people.
On Sunday, George Stephanopoulos, an ABC anchor asked Scalise about the decision of Rep. Ken Buck (R-Colo.) to exit Congress and about the comments that he had about many GOP leaders lying to the people and stating that the election had been stolen.
Scalise had avoided providing a direct response and instead just pointed out all the work that he and Buck had done in order for the country to get back on track.
