RELEASE: Too Afraid to Take a Stand, Sununu Says Trump’s Lies About Election Fraud Aren’t Dangerous
Concord, N.H. -- Yesterday, WMUR’s Adam Sexton asked Governor Sununu if he thought that Trump’s lies about voter fraud in the 2020 election -- including in New Hampshire -- were dangerous. Too afraid to take a stand, Sununu said that Trump lost New Hampshire but refused to call Trump’s comments dangerous, “Do I consider them dangerous? No, I wouldn't say dangerous. I just, I don't really consider them to be honest.” You can watch the discussion here. SEXTON: Do you consider those comments dangerous? SUNUNU: Do I consider them dangerous? No, I wouldn't say dangerous. I just, I don't really consider them to be honest. While Sununu refused to acknowledge that Trump’s lies about the election are dangerous, this week Wyoming Congresswoman and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post where she made it clear how dangerous Trump’s claims are and said, “Trump repeats these words now with full knowledge that exactly this type of language provoked violence on Jan. 6. And, as the Justice Department and multiple federal judges have suggested, there is good reason to believe that Trump’s language can provoke violence again.” “Granite Staters see right through Sununu’s sad and pathetic attempts to protect his political ambitions by refusing to say how dangerous Trump’s Big Lie is,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley.
