ONE WEEK AFTER MOB VIOLENCE AT THE CAPITOL,

SC GOP STILL STANDING WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP

SC Republicans continue to support President Trump’s reign of terror against Democracy

COLUMBIA, SC— The SC GOP continues to support Donald Trump’s assault on Democracy in the remaining days of his lame duck presidency. SC Attorney General Alan Wilson claims he had no knowledge of a robocall sent out by Republican Attorney Generals inciting violence and also supported lawsuits looking to overturn the 2020 election.

Lindsey Graham pressured Georgia election officials to invalidate votes. Following the insurrection, he gave a shameful speech from the Senate floor where he publicly denounced the President and Graham’s previous loyalty to him. Today, Lindsey Graham is joining Trump for a press appearance on immigration at the Texas-Mexico border.

SC House Republicans are also complicit and their continued seditious behavior will be further exposed as House members convene to move forward the process of removing Donald Trump from office later this evening.

“When will South Carolina Republicans call for the impeachment of Donald Trump instead of continuing to rubber stamp the behavior of he and his acolytes in Washington and here at home?” asked SCDP Chair Trav Robertson, Jr. “Now Lindsey Graham is standing right beside him at the border. The hypocrisy is dizzying and the voters will not forget who stood for the Republic and who handed it over to the insurrectionists.”

SC Republicans are adamant in their refusal to rebuke Donald Trump actions which resulted in a deadly breach of the United States Capital. South Carolina’s Republican elected officials took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic and are miserably failing to do so.
