Senator Josh Hawley spoke for millions of disenfranchised Trump voters in a hearing on Wednesday.
He pointed out the hypocrisy of Democrats for saying Trump voters should just shut up and accept the outcome of the 2020 election, despite overwhelming evidence of voter fraud.
He also reminded Democrats that they put America through hell for four years over the Russia collusion hoax and therefore are not in a position to lecture anyone.

Sen. Hawley: Galling for Russia ‘hoax’ Dems, media to call voters ‘nutcase’ for election concerns
Sen. Josh Hawley unloaded on Democrats Wednesday for essentially telling 74 million Americans to “shut up” about election integrity concerns.
The Missouri Republican, speaking before the Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee, said it’s “absolutely unbelievable” how Democrats and the media are treating legitimate questions about how the 2020 presidential election was conducted.
Mr. Hawley said that “every single” constituent in a group of nearly 30 people at a recent meeting expressed the stance that “they had been disenfranchised.”
“These are normal, reasonable people,” the senator said. “These are not crazy people. These are reasonable people and who, by the way, have been involved in politics. They’ve won, they’ve lost. They’ve seen it all. These are normal folks living normal lives who firmly believe that they have been disenfranchised. And to listen to the mainstream press quite a few voices in this building tell them after four years of non-stop Russia hoax — it was a hoax…
“I’ll tell you what: 74 million Americans are not going to shut up,” the Republican continued.

Millions of Trump voters have been waiting to hear someone in the Republican party say these words.
Hawley is absolutely right, and other Republicans would be wise to follow his lead.
