Top Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney has added her voice to a number of Republicans calling on President Donald Trump to concede defeat to President-elect Joe Biden.
The House Republican Conference Chairwoman and Wyoming Rep who is the number 3 Republican in the House urged the president to concede defeat if he can’t prove his alleged widespread voter fraud claims.
The President’s campaign legal team led by Rudy Giuliani has lost a number of court cases in some states.
In a statement on Friday, Cheney asked the President to respect the country’s electoral process and back down if he can’t provide evidence to back his claims.
Cheney’s call is a deviation from other top Republicans in the House including Minority leader Kevin McCarthy who has supported the president since he lost the elections two weeks ago.
The President hit back at the congresswoman in a tweet saying he can’t accept the results of an elections which saw thousands of fraudulent votes cast.
Republican senators Pat Toomey and Susan Collins also voiced out their concerns with the president’s handling of his defeat and called on him concede defeat.
