House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) refused to say the 2020 presidential election was “not stolen” despite being given six chances.
During an interview on ABC News on Sunday, host George Stephanopoulos repeatedly asked Scalise to say the 2020 election did not have widespread fraud.
“Can you say unequivocally that the 2020 election was not stolen?” the host asked again.
“What I’ve told you is there are states that didn’t follow their laws,” Scalise replied.
“That’s not what I asked,” the host pushed back. “Can you say unequivocally that the 2020 election was not stolen?”
“Look, Joe Biden’s president, I know you and others want to talk about 2020,” Scalise deflected, citing challenges with Russia and China.
“I just want an answer to the question, yes or no,” Stephanopoulos said.
But he never received an answer.
“I’m talking about what’s wrong with our country today, how to fix the problems, how to secure America’s border,” Scalise said.
