Senator Bernie Sanders said the GOP is no longer a political party but a “cult” because it has largely remained silent or supportive as the president continues increasingly desperate challenges to the election results with no real evidence of fraud.

Only a few high-profile Republicans in Washington like Senator Mitt Romney of Utah have dared to criticize the president’s post-election conduct, even as he and his associates continue to repeat false conspiracies about the election and take highly controversial moves like the president personally calling election officials in Michigan to pressure them to decertify election results.
