Unlike the criminals in the GA RICO case, Wisconsin fake electors evaded criminal prosecution by admitting something a few GOP legislators still cannot do, admit that @POTUS won the 2020 election.
MADISON, Wis. — In a legal settlement Wednesday, the 10 Republicans who signed official-looking paperwork falsely purporting Donald Trump won Wisconsin in 2020 have agreed to withdraw their inaccurate filings, acknowledge Joe Biden won the presidency and not serve as presidential electors in 2024 or in any election where Trump is on the ballot.
Wednesday’s civil settlement marks the first time pro-Trump electors have agreed to revoke their false filings and not repeat their actions in the next presidential election. It comes as Republicans in two other states face criminal charges for falsely claiming to be presidential electors, and investigations are underway in three additional states.
The lawsuit, filed last year by two of the state’s rightful electors, alleged the Republicans had taken part in a conspiracy to defraud voters and sought up to $200,000 from each Trump elector. No money is being exchanged as part of the settlement.
Trump: I'll be a dictator on day one.
Former Trump White House advisor and campaign manager, Steve Bannon, tore into Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday after Hannity asked the former president if he would be a “dictator” if returned to the White House.
Bannon, who regularly insults Fox News on his far-right, conspiracy theory-promoting podcast, fumed at Hannity for asking the question and called the veteran host an “idiot” and “dumb.” Bannon began his monologue by calling Rupert Murdoch a “moron” and Fox News “TV for stupid people.”
“Sean Hannity actually thought he was helping Trump last night,” Bannon raged, quoting the host’s question to the former president: “Let me ask you a question, will you be a dictator?”
Bannon then praised Trump for heckling Hannity with a comical reply and argued that the Fox town hall audience was not just laughing at Trump’s reply, but they were laughing at Hannity. “By the way Sean, they are laughing at you,” Bannon jabbed.
“You’re an idiot,” he continued, pulling no punches.
