GOP Representative Scorches Trump Over 'Constitution' Post

Linkedin Share

Donald Trump made serious waves this week after Elon Musk began airing some of Twitter’s previous dirty laundry, specifically in regard to the platform’s actions during the 2020 electoral cycle.

Namely, Musk suggested that Twitter’s work to suppress a story about Hunter Biden’s “laptop from Hell” occurred despite the fact the fact that the story was not Russian “misinformation”, (as some had claimed), but was indeed veritably true.  A former Twitter “safety chair” also suggested that the suppression of the story was “a mistake” as Musk began his campaign of transparency.

The news once again infuriated former President Donald Trump, who stated that this sort of election “interference” should come with consequences.  Trump went on to suggest that the issue superseded the power of even the Constitution, however, and that comment had several lawmakers rather concerned.

Rep. Mike Turner (Ohio), the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, on Sunday condemned former President Trump’s suggestion to suspend the Constitution over unfounded claims of mass electoral fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

During an appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” moderator Margaret Brennan asked Turner if he condemned Trump’s post on Saturday calling for “the termination of all rules,” including those in the Constitution, over his election claims.

“Absolutely,” Turner responded. “And I believe, answering your question, that people certainly are going to take into consideration a statement like this as they evaluate a candidate.”

Turner has had plenty of disagreements with Trump in the past.

“I, first of all, vehemently disagree with with the statement that Trump has made,” Turner said on CBS. “Trump has made 1,000 statements in which I disagree.”

Trump officially announced his 2024 reelection campaign several weeks ago, making the former President the first Republican to enter the race.
