Republican Congressman Paul Mitchell has voted in line with President Trump more than 95% of the time. As a member of the House Republican leadership team, he helped whip the vote to ensure Trump’s cornerstone policies became law. Insiders even considered him a contender to win the GOP primary for Michigan’s 2022 gubernatorial race.

However, the retiring representative has had enough of the GOP — citing his disgust with the Republican Party’s support for unsubstantiated, albeit compelling, allegations of systemic voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

The Detroit News reports:

Mitchell’s announcement came shortly after Michigan’s electors cast their votes in the Electoral College on Monday for President-elect Joe Biden, who won Michigan by 154,000 votes.

Trump has repeatedly made unproven claims that there was “massive” voter fraud in Michigan’s election, but Mitchell for weeks has called on the president to concede for the good of the nation.

He laid out his reasoning for leaving the party in a letter Monday to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Roney McDaniel.

While he acknowledged disconcerting aspects of the election process, Mitchell said Trump and his legal team have failed to “provide substantive evidence of fraud or administrative failure on a scale large enough to impact the outcome of the election.” He continued:

“If Republican leaders collectively sit back and tolerate unfounded conspiracy theories and ‘stop the steal’ rallies without speaking out for our electoral process, which the Department of Homeland Security said was ‘the most secure in American history,’ our nation will be damaged,” Mitchell said in the letter.

Mitchell has represented Michigan’s heavily-Republican 10th District since 2017.

Mr. Mitchell – you will see shortly that you are wrong. It’s too bad you had a knee-jerked reaction instead of “Patience, Little Grasshopper”.

Mr. Mitchell is not a loyal person, I don’t want to say he is a looser, but I do believe that he is totally wrong in saying that there was no voter fraud. I’m disgusted by this congressman.

I wonder what his retirement is on the taxpayer?

The far-left, liberals, Democrats and other far-left groups will welcome him. That is his other option. If his heart and mind suddenly leans toward socialism, let us thank him for his years of service and wish his farewell…a wish of happiness or welfare at parting, especially a permanent departure. God bless

He is an atypical Washington DC “rino” swamp-dweller!
Fact is, most Republicans in the most evil, corrupt, immoral city in our great country
have no loyalty, no integrity, and no courage when things get a little tough.
They would throw their own parents under the bus in order to keep their cushy jobs,
Cadillac medical benefits, unbelievable retirement benefits, influence, bribes, pay-offs,
power, and control!!! Don’t doubt me on this, folks!

It’s not just Republicans everybody in DC for the most part need to go. They don’t give a damn about us they just line their pockets and to hell with the people.

Mr. Mitchell-I do not see what you mean by “Conspiration Theories” and “unsubstantiated ” allegations. There may not be enough “libertis” taken with our votes, but these should be investigated and the perpetrators be held accountable!! Instead you should remain in the party and help make meaningful changes so that these types of “irregularities” be prevented from happening. But then I am a very altruistic person and wearr my heart on my sleeve. I would not last a day among the alligators in the swamp.

The Lefties are willing to fight, DIRTY, and the GOP cant/wont push on that for fear of what will become of their careers….So, they fold, like the wet rags they are, and pretend to fight another day, and yet nothing ever changes!!!
The only real change is when Pres. Trump got elected and he upset the corrupt way of life , that is our Federal Govt, and that wasn’t going to work for any of them…especially the criminal left-nutz!!! So you see what they did….the whole world sees what they did….and NOTHING will change!!!
Until “We the People” band together and fight back!!!

Yup! The bullies have taken over the schoolyard and there doesn’t seem to be many who will stand up to them. Even the Supreme Court is running from their threats. During the election season I was as disgusted with many of the Republicans as I was all of the Democrats. Concede for the good of the Country!!! That’s the same thing people like the likes of Romney said. What good is that?! Showing us all and the world that cheating in U.S. elections will get you the power you crave. I haven’t a clue how all this will play out, but I would suggest “Dr.” Jill Biden not get too attached to the furniture she picks out because I feel certain she won’t be in the White House long. That wasn’t the plan from the beginning and it’s already being set up to remove Biden from office, either through mental decline (precedent being set by those trying to remove Diane Feinstein for that) or using the Hunter Biden scandal to get it done. One way or the other it will be done, thus disenfranchising all the people that actually voted legally for Biden. That does add to the numbers who will consider changing things in the future.. I never thought the Country would ever come to this and I did my part to make sure it didn’t, but if people think 2020 was bad, the next four years will be more of the same and worse. Doing away with all small business will not stop and life will become harder and harder for all of us. If the election fraud can be stopped, there might be hope for 2022.

We have been Slaves Without Chains for forty years or more. But now Trump comes along and upsets the system. That is why it took all the media, and big tech, big pharma, and a bunch of crooked Judges to get rid of him. They think of us as their slaves, their servants, serfs, tenants, and old blue collar workers. They are now destroying the middle class and their businesses while the big boys gobble up their customers. Clever, greedy, corrupt, and anti-God, anti-Christian, they are our worse enemy because they are an extension of Satan.
