Rep John Lewis: Trump Is Not Legitimate

The Democrat effort to challenge the legitimacy of President-elect Trump continues.

The latest attack comes from Representative John Lewis (D-GA).

NBC News reports:

In an exclusive interview with NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) said he does not believe Donald Trump is a “legitimate president,” citing Russian interference in last year’s election.

Asked whether he would try to forge a relationship with the president-elect, Lewis said that he believes in forgiveness, but added, “it’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president.”

When pressed to explain why, he cited allegations of Russian hacks during the campaign that led to the release of internal documents from the Democratic National Committee, and Hillary Clinton’s campaign co-chairman, John Podesta.

“I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” Lewis told NBC News’ Chuck Todd.

Lewis joins fellow Congressional Black Caucus member Maxine Waters (D-CA) in refusing to work with Trump.

Waters said, “I have no intention of pretending everything is all right, that we’re going to work together.”

Lewis knows the Russians didn’t hack into voting machines but facts don’t matter. Hillary Clinton lost because the public did not trust her because of numerous lies surrounding her private email system.

In addition, Clinton ran a lousy campaign.

The political left is fully engaged in trying to delegitimize Trump regardless of the evidence.
