Former ambassador John Bolton, a conservative Republican who once served in the Trump administration but later became a critic of the president, rejected claims of election fraud.
"I think as every day goes by, it's clearer and clearer there isn't any evidence," Bolton said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday. “But if the Republican voters are only hearing Donald Trump's misrepresentations, it's not surprising that they believe it.”
“It's critical for other Republican leaders to stand up and explain what actually happened: Donald Trump lost what, by any evidence we have so far, was a free and fair election.”
In response, Trump posted a tweet bashing Bolton as “a real dope” who was “one of the dumbest people in government that I’ve had the 'pleasure’ to work with.”
