Republican political strategist Karl Rove is strongly suggesting that President Donald Trump change his narrative about the 2020 election.
Rove said Sunday that if the president does not change his tune soon, he risks a bipartisan conviction in the Senate.
“Every Republican senator needs to take this seriously,” Rove said of Trump’s upcoming impeachment trial, according to Breitbart. “I think it’s all going to boil down to: what’s the president’s defense?”
Rove also warned that following lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s lead is dangerous, saying:
Rudy Giuliani charted a very bad course for the president in the morning papers when he suggested that the argument was going to be that there couldn’t have been incitement because all the charges of widespread voter fraud are true. Well, those charges, and the so-called experts that the campaign has mustered to advocate them, have been rejected by over 50 courts with judges appointed by President Trump, President Obama, Present Bush, President Clinton, and I think even one Reagan justice.
So if it’s the Rudy Giuliani defense, there is a strong likelihood that more than 17 Republicans will [vote to convict] because essentially that argument is this was justified — the attack on the Capitol and the attempt to end the congressional hearing on certifying the election was justified — because all these charges are true, and frankly, they aren’t.
