Another former top Republican ally of President Donald Trump is the latest to break with the White House over the continued legal battles over the 2020 election.
And the battle between Trump loyalists and establishment Republicans has grown nasty.

Rep. Paul Mitchell, R-M.I., said he voted “96% in support of [Trump] admin policy” but said it was time for Trump to concede on Sunday… and then called the president’s fight stupid.
Oh my God. .@realDonaldTrump Please for the sake of our Nation please drop these arguments without evidence or factual basis. #stopthestupid https://t.co/IMMImXrckV

He was joined by Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., who said it was “silly” to consider the FBI rigged the election on behalf of Biden, and called the notion a “baseless” conspiracy.
The @FBI did not rig the election. If you find yourself believing they did, please stop, and say it out loud, and you will realize how silly it sounds. @realDonaldTrump simply flooding the zone with baseless conspiracies again.

Trump fired back against establishment Republicans recently.
He said he was “ashamed” to have endorsed Gov. Brian Kemp, R-G.A., and attacked the state’s Republican Secretary of State on Sunday.

The president claimed Kemp and Georgia Republicans haven’t done enough to help his struggling legal battles.
“Everything has to be approved by the legislature, and they had judges making deals, and they had electoral officials making deals like this character in Georgia who’s a disaster,” Trump said of the state’s Secretary of State George Raffensperger.
Raffensperger has defended the integrity of the election in Georgia and recently called on Trump to leave quietly.
“And the governor’s done nothing. He’s done absolutely nothing,” Trump added of Kemp. “I’m ashamed that I endorsed him. But I look what’s going on. It’s so terrible.”
Another Trump ally, lawyer Lin Wood, again called on Trump supporters to boycott the upcoming Georgia senate elections to punish “RINO” — Republican In Name Only — establishment politicians.

Wood said he would not participate in further elections unless Republican lawmakers do more to support the president.
I choose not to vote in another fraudulent election with rigged voting machines & fake mail ballots.
The future of this nation will not be be determined by fraudulent elections.
This is not about an election. This is a color revolution to overthrow our government.

Wood and Trump have both repeatedly claimed the election was rigged against the president.[Sponsored] This Food Grows Cancerous Tumors – Do Not Eat It
But in the face of mounting court battle losses, time is running out for the White House’s legal team if they hope to overturn the current results. The president’s lawyers have made bold claims to the public, but have so far refused to enter their evidence into the legal system.
