For weeks, President Donald Trump has refused to accept the reality that President-elect Joe Biden defeated him in the 2020 election. Instead, he's propped up wild conspiracy theories and frivolous lawsuits claiming widespread voter fraud tipped the election in Biden's favor.
Most of the President's allies in the Republican party are standing by him, either by not acknowledging Biden's victory or parroting the President's claims designed to erode public faith in American democracy.
On Tuesday, when the President's own Attorney General, William Barr, said the Justice Department found no evidence of voter fraud that would've changed the outcome of the 2020 election, but the President's supporters still aren't convinced.
Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) told CNN Congressional correspondent Manu Raju that he wants to see "proof" that there's a lack of evidence of large-scale voter fraud.
The Bulwark's Mark Becker reacted to this statement in an article detailing a phone conversation he recently had with Johnson, in which Johnson acknowledged Biden was the winner of the election, but that it would be political suicide to publicly break with Trump.
Twitter users scorned Johnson for apparently believing the burden of proof isn't on those alleging voter fraud, but on those pointing out the claims' lack of veracity.
How do you show evidence that fraud didn't happen?
They soon began reminding their followers that Johnson is up for reelection in the 2022 midterms.
Despite the "outstanding" questions Senator Johnson believes exist, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris will be inaugurated on January 20th.
