Former Republican National Committee spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington not only doesn’t believe that President Donald Trump incited a violent insurrection last week, but on Tuesday she claimed that, actually, the “real insurrection” was President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory.
During a Tuesday morning appearance on the stridently pro-Trump cable news channel Newsmax, first spotted by Media Matters, Harrington parroted the emerging conservative talking point that impeaching Trump for inciting a seditious mob would further inflame Trump supporters and potentially plummet the country into violence.
“They don’t want unity. They want uniformity,” she fumed. “That’s been the goal. They want one-party rule. That’s what they’re trying to do.”
