Much of this was encouraged by the president, and much of it happened because we lack any type of leadership to speak truth to power.
A glaring example of this was Sen. James Lankford who betrayed his oath of office, his state and his country by initially encouraging the belief that the election was stolen, despite any evidence.
A man in his position has access to information if there were any actual fraud.
