Trump’s remarks Tuesday indicate he has no intention of letting go of his unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud even though some Republicans cite his criticisms against the November election as partly to blame for turnout in two Georgia Senate runoffs that Democrats won, handing the party control of the upper chamber.

Many Republicans dropped their questions over the legitimacy of the presidential election after the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill.

The insurrection marked a failed attempt to halt Congress’s certification of the Electoral College results, though the mob did succeed in forcing lawmakers to flee for safety, with some rioters seeking to harm top Republicans and Democrats, including former Vice President Mike PenceMichael (Mike) Richard PencePence says he hopes conservative majority on Supreme Court will restrict abortion access Federal judge to hear case of Proud Boy alleged Jan. 6 rioter seeking release from jail The Hill's 12:30 Report - Presented by Facebook - Dems attempt to tie government funding, Ida relief to debt limit MORE and Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiManchin cast doubt on deal this week for .5T spending bill Obama says US 'desperately needs' Biden legislation ahead of key votes Congress shows signs of movement on stalled Biden agenda MORE (D-Calif.).
