Former GOP rep. tells Republicans not to 'fear' Donald Trump
The former president has repeatedly teased a return to electoral politics ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.
"While he is still popular within the party, Mr. Trump is a diminished political figure: 66 percent of Americans now hope he won't run again in 2024, including 30 percent of Republicans," Comstock said, citing a Quinnipiac poll published on May 26.
"He is not the future, and Republicans need to stop fearing him. He will continue to damage the party if we don't face the Jan. 6 facts head-on."Comstock went on tourge a proper, bipartisan investigation of the events of January 6, suggesting it could take the form of a commission or a congressional committee and said:"Republicans should be part of the process, to help provide accountability and prevent future attacks."
She argued that the GOP can win elections on policy issues and that the party doesn't need toembrace falsehoods about the last presidential election."Reconsider the commission, let the investigation go ahead, and run and win in 2022 on the truth," Comstock concluded. headtopics.com
