“What is the party doing to make certain it isn’t called?” he asked the GOP lawmaker. “I see so little animation in the Republican Party on this. It’s as if it’s just another day at the store and when, in fact, I believe the fate of the republic hangs in the balance here. Don’t you?”

Nunes argued that Republicans are trying to get their message across but are being censored by the mainstream news outlets and social media sites such as Facebook, calling for the use of alternative apps such as Parler and Rumble instead.

Dobbs then attacked “radical” Democrats, accusing them of intimidating Supreme Court Justice Brett KavanaughBrett Michael KavanaughVoting rights, Trump's Big Lie, and Republicans' problem with minorities Supreme Court agrees to hear case on HS coach's suspension over on-field prayers The Supreme Court, vaccination and government by Fox News MORE and “millions of Americans with their violence, their antifa, their Black Lives Matter.”

“This is an effort to intimidate,” Dobbs concluded. “This is an attempt to take over the country and deny this president what is rightfully his, a second term.”

Dobbs’s comments come as Trump and his campaign have launched efforts to challenge the election outcome in various states, including Georgia, where a recount is underway.

Trump has not conceded the presidential race, and his campaign has faced a series of setbacks in court recently as it attempts to challenge the election results.
