Senate Republicans on Thursday forcefully rejected President Donald Trump’s suggestion that the 2020 election results might not be accurately determined, but largely declined to address previous bipartisan conclusions that such rhetoric aids foreign adversaries.
“It’s just not accurate,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said when asked whether Trump’s comment was inappropriate. “I’m confident the election process is going to work just fine,” Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) said, though he declined to weigh in on whether Trump’s suggestion was appropriate.
Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), a senior member of the Intelligence Committee who is facing a tough fight to win reelection this year, noted that her state “has had no-excuses-needed absentee ballots for a very long time, and it’s always worked very well.”
