Trump administration officials have received their departure instructions from the White House administrative office in contradiction to President Donald Trump’s public statements about the fraudulent 2020 election. This is an unsubstantiated claim that its own security agencies and the Justice Department have put down.
According to a memo received from POLITICO, the employees have been informed of this “Will be leaving” in the week of January 4th,
The memo “Information was also included on payroll, benefits, sick leave, work records, ethics reviews and security reviews for outbound workers,” the outlet reported. The memo provides staff with a “comprehensive checklist” of the tasks they need to complete before they go, including “cleaning your refrigerator and microwave” and returning “all White House stationery.”
This development came after news outlets reported that Trump and several House Republicans met to discuss a plan to prevent Congress from confirming President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
That news sparked a response from Senator John Thune (RS. Dak.), Who said that efforts to object to the vote in the electoral college were ultimately pointless.
“I mean, it would go down like a shot dog in the Senate,” Thune told CNN. “I just don’t think it’s very useful to go through them all when you know what the final result will be.”
Trump later attacked Thune, saying that someone would put him in the foreground in the 2022 midterm elections.
Republicans in the Senate forget so quickly. At the moment they would have dropped 8 seats without my support in the last election. RINO John Thune, “Mitch’s Boy”, should just let it play. South Dakota doesn’t like weakness. He will be in primary school in 2022, his political career is over !!!
