Former President Donald Trump this month called Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and encouraged him to decertify President Joe Biden’s 2020 election win in that state, Vos said in a new interview.
Trump wants Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos to do something different.
Vos said that Trump introduced the topic after the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled absentee ballot drop boxes in the state illegal earlier this month.
“It’s very consistent. He makes his case, which I respect,” Vos said to a News channel. He said that Trump wants him to do something different in Wisconsin. He explained that it’s not allowed under the Constitution. “He has a different opinion.”
What did Trump post on Truth Social?
The Republican lawmaker said in the same interview that Trump took to his social media platform “Truth social” on July 9, calling on the Wisconsin legislature to turn the election to the actual winner by airing his grievances with the politician.
Vos has constantly said that his state’s legislature does not have the authority to revoke the votes of a slate of electors despite claims by some GOP lawmakers that it does.
Why did Trump think Speaker Robin Vos would do nothing about the amazing Wisconsin Supreme Court decision?
Former President Trump wrote, using a critical term that only describes “Republican” in name. He added that it looks like Speaker Robin Vos, a long time professional RINO always looking to guard his flank, will not be doing anything about the amazing Wisconsin Supreme Court decision,”
He continued, saying that the Democrats would like to sincerely thank Robin and his fellow RINOs for letting them get away with ‘murder,” A Rigged and stolen election.
Biden overthrew Trump in Wisconsin by a margin of 49.4% to 48.8%.
In 2021, Trump accused Vos of “working hard to cover up election corruption” after denying to do a forensic inspection of the results of the 2020 election in the state.
Vos eventually started an investigation into the 2020 election in his state.
Vos’s interview arrives two days before Thursday’s scheduled public hearing of the U.S. House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol insurrection by a mob of Trump supporters.
When did the event of Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol insurrection begin?
The event began after Trump’s claim for weeks that he had won the 2020 election and that claiming Biden’s victory was based on ballot fraud. The mobs interrupted the certification of Biden’s Electoral College victory for hours by a joint session of Congress.
Biden beat Trump by a margin of 306 to 232 votes in the Electoral College.
A special grand jury in Georgia investigates to collect evidence and testimony as to whether Trump and his allies committed crimes to get officials there to overthrow Biden’s 2020 victory in that state.
The Wisconsin state Supreme Court blocks the use of drop-off boxes outside election offices for absentee ballots in forthcoming elections.
Nearly two weeks ago, the Wisconsin state Supreme Court blocked the use of drop-off boxes outside election offices for absentee ballots in forthcoming elections. According to the ruling, such ballots must be mailed in or delivered directly to a local election office.
Trump has claimed, without evidence, that such drop boxes were used in Wisconsin to swing the election to Biden falsely.
Vos explained to the TV channel that the July 10 Supreme Court decision regarding ballot drop boxes would only affect the law moving forward and cannot be applied retroactively in previous elections. Vos has supported this decision and called the drop boxes “illegal.”
Trump responded to the interview Tuesday evening while again encouraging Vos to act.
He wrote, “So what’s Speaker Robin Vos doing on the Great Wisconsin Supreme Court Ruling declaring hundreds of thousands of DropBox votes illegal?”. He also adds that right now is not a time for him to hide but a time to act.
Who is Robin Vos?
Robin J. Vos was born on July 5, 1968, is an American Republican politician and the 79th speaker of the Wisconsin State Assembly, and has served in that role since 2013. He has been a member of the Assembly since 2005 and represents most of the southern half of Racine County. Vos is also president of the National Conference of State Legislatures.
After Joe Biden won the 2020 election and Donald Trump denied to concede while making fraud claims, Vos appropriated $680,000 in taxpayer money to fund an investigation by Michael Gableman to look into the fraudulence in the 2020 election. Gableman issued a report in March 2022 that was widespread with false claims of fraud and conspiracy theories.
