Former President Donald Trump announced that he was withdrawing his endorsement of Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), who is running for U.S. Senate in Alabama. Brooks, who is running behind in the polls, evidently angered Trump when he refused to declare Trump won the 2020 election.
In a shocking statement, Brooks responded to Trump’s release revealing the personal conversations that he had with Trump, in which the former president directly told him to overrule the election and hold another vote. Brooks, a lawyer, would know that this directly links Trump to an effort to overthrow the election.
The startling admission was compared to the infamous “flip” that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen made after Trump abandoned him. Some giggled at the internal GOP drama while others noted the significance for the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and what lead up to it.
