MAGA congressman drops dime on Trump: He 'asked me to rescind 2020 elections' and 'immediately remove Biden'
Rep Mo Brooks office

U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), a far-right Congressman who allegedly strategized with then-President Donald Trump on ways to overturn the election, spoke at the January 6 rally wearing a bulletproof vest while urging “American patriots” to “start taking down names and kicking ass,” confessed Wednesday that Trump had asked him “to rescind the 2020 elections, immediately remove Joe Biden from the White House, immediately put President Trump back in the White House, and hold a new special election for the presidency.”

It is possibly the most damning accusation or admission yet from a Trump insider, someone who up until hours ago had been endorsed by the former president in his race for a U.S. Senate seat. Brooks was also the first member of Congress to declare he objected to the results of the 2020 election being certified.

“As a lawyer,” Brooks claims, “I’ve repeatedly advised President Trump that January 6 was the final election contest verdict and neither the U.S. Constitution nor the U.S. Code permit what President Trump asks. Period.”
