Michael Flynn tells Newsmax that Georgia runoffs are 'fake elections'

Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn on Thursday said that Georgia’s critical Senate runoff races are “fake elections.”

During an interview on Newsmax TV’s “Greg Kelly Reports,” Flynn said the Republican Party needs to “start standing up” to support President TrumpDonald TrumpTrump vows 'No more money for RINOS,' instead encouraging donations to his PAC Federal judge rules 'QAnon shaman' too dangerous to be released from jail Pelosi says Capitol riot was one of the most difficult moments of her career MORE as he continues to dispute the results of the 2020 election.

“They’re all worried about Georgia,” Flynn said. “They’re all worried about this runoff in Georgia. It’s a fake election.”

The Peach State has become a frequent attack of the president and his allies as they claim the election was riddled with widespread voter fraud.

“You can’t have another election on the same system,” Flynn said. “It’s a broken system, and we cannot allow a system that’s tied to foreign powers to be used to vote for the president or any election, any elected office in our country.”

Kelly then said that Republicans would “breathe a sigh of relief” when Trump leaves office.

“They’re weak and they lack courage,” Flynn responded. “There’s a few of them, there’s not enough of them.”

However, some have warned that the president’s refusal to concede the election could harm Republicans in Georgia.

Earlier this month, former Speaker Newt GingrichNewton (Newt) Leroy GingrichMORE (R-Ga.) called pro-Trump attorneys Lin Wood and Sidney Powell “totally destructive” for encouraging supporters of the president not to vote until they speak out on the president’s behalf.

Meanwhile, Republicans faced two legal setbacks this week amid a push to enforce stricter voting rules ahead of the runoffs.
