KASICH: Republicans Either ‘in Lockstep’ w/Trump or They’re ‘Afraid’ of Him

'It is just sort of amazing to me that Republicans just keep sitting on their hands...'

Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich claimed that many of his fellow Republicans are “either in complete lockstep” with President Trump, or “they’re afraid of him.”

In an interview with NPR, Kasich said the reason many Republicans won’t speak out against Trump’s allegations of voter fraud is because they either agree with him, or they’ve been bullied into silence.

“They’re afraid that they’ll be primaried or they’re afraid they’ll be severely criticized,” he said. ”And it’s a pretty remarkable situation. [Biden] has clearly won this election and it is just sort of amazing to me that Republicans just keep sitting on their hands. It makes no sense.”

Kasich said Trump’s refusal to concede is “absurd.”

“There should be total and complete cooperation between the Trump administration and the incoming Biden administration in any variety of ways in which to deal with the distribution of the vaccine, a whole series of issues going forward,” he continued.

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made a similar comment this weekend when he called Trump’s legal team a “national embarrassment.”

“Elections have consequences, and we cannot continue to act as if something happened here that didn’t happen,” Christie told ABC News on Sunday.

Christie accused Trump’s lawyers — namely, Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, and until recently Sidney Powell — of making bold allegations to the press without offering evidence to back them up in court.

“They don’t do it in the courtroom,” Christie said. “It must mean the evidence doesn’t exist.”

Giuliani and Ellis distanced themselves from Powell this weekend, releasing a statement that clarified Powell’s independent role.

“Sidney Powell is practicing law on her own,” Giuliani and Ellis said in their statement. “She is not a member of the Trump Legal Team. She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”
