Path 27

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) is railing against Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) for his refusal to acknowledge President Joe Biden as the election’s fair winner.

Host of ABC’s “This Week” George Stephanopoulos noted the Republicans who have argued a trial to impeach President Donald Trump in the Senate would be unconstitutional.

“It is constitutional,” Klobuchar responded.

She continued, “As I listened to Rand Paul, George, I just kept thinking, man, this is why Joe Biden won.”

Klobuchar explained, “The American people right now are struggling. They need pandemic relief. They are literally trying to balance their toddlers on their knees and their laptops on their desks, and teaching their first graders how to use a mute button just to go to school. They need help.”

She expressed confidence in the ability lawmakers have to conduct the impeachment trial while tackling other issues.

Klobuchar took to Twitter to criticize Paul for pushing false election claims and Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for their failure to prioritize the interests of Americans.

“Rand Paul spent all his time on @This Week ABC spewing crazy discredited election conspiracy theories. Hey Rand/Hawley/Cruz, Americans don’t want another mad mob insurrection. They want the vaccine!” she tweeted.

Stephanopoulos pressed Paul on why he could not admit Biden won the election, as IJR reported.

“I’m not willing just to sit here and say, ‘Oh everybody on the Republican side is a liar’ and ‘there is no fraud.’ No, there were lots of problems, and there were secretaries of state who illegally changed the law, and that needs to be fixed,” Paul said on Sunday.

He is adamant there is a “great deal of evidence of fraud and changing of the election laws illegally.”

Paul also said he thinks “a thorough investigation is warranted.”
