Theories, no evidence

Editor:

It’s recently been reported that former President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, stated to to the Speaker of the Arizona House that: “We’ve got lots of theories, we just don’t have the evidence.” He was, of course, referring to Trump’s never-ending allegations that the 2020 election was stolen.

I have no idea how many Republicans in these parts still adhere to this trumped-up story about the 2020 presidential election, though I note with some amusement that none of the “Write of Center” authors has addressed it. Instead, they’ve gone back to hanging their hat on bumper-sticker-like prognostications about what the Republican Party purportedly stands for. (See e.g., “Discussing the American majority, 22 July 2022) One of the things that lawyers learn in law school is how to discern the difference between evidence and allegation, fact and fiction, veracity and deceit. Unfortunately, way too many Republicans are in dire need of a quick course on just such distinctions. With regard to allegations of voter fraud and the 2020 presidential election in particular, these Republicans should read a recent report distributed online by the conservative Cato Institute and written by a number of prominent political conservatives. That publication is titled “Lost, Not Stolen: The Conservative Case that Trump Lost and Biden Won the 2020 Presidential Election.”
