WATCH: Lou Dobbs Tells Trump It’s Time to Take “Drastic Action”
More and more Republicans have recently come out and say that Donald Trump needs to stop with his fraud claims. Republican Congressman Paul Mitchell asked that the president “stop the stupid.” And on Monday, the Conservative National Review called Trump’s actions a disgrace.
There are, however, still many Conservatives that are willing to support the president’s behavior. And Lou Dobbs is among the most ardent. The Fox host not only had Sidney Powell on his Monday show, he also called for Trump to take “drastic action.”
Seemingly speaking directly to the president, Dobbs said, “And as I said at the outset of the broadcast, Sidney, this is no longer about just voter fraud or electoral fraud. This is something much bigger. And this president has to take, I believe, drastic action, dramatic action to make certain that the integrity of this election is understood or lack of it, the crimes that have been committed against him and the American people.”
The Fox host continued, “And if the Justice Department doesn’t want to do it, if the FBI cannot do it, then we have to find other resources within the federal government. We’ve got to rise above this because the nation itself — this is an assault on the core of a democracy, any democracy. Our ability to cast a secret ballot. Your thoughts, Sidney, as we wrap up here.”
Powell, of course, agreed with him. “That’s exactly right, Lou,” she said. “It affects the bedrock of our democratic republic. It can’t be allowed to stand and, frankly, I’m about to think the entire FBI and the entire Department of Justice need to be hosed out with Chlorox and fire hoses.”
