Axios is reporting that a new book by former Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA) asserts that AG Drew Wrigley shared a plan with Sen. Kevin Cramer for a “last-ditch effort” to demand recounts of absentee ballots in key states. Cramer then forwarded that plan on to Trump Chief-of-Staff Mark Meadows.
This comes on the heels of CNN reporting that showed Meadows was also in communication with pro-Trump operatives who wanted to seize voting machines. In a 60 Minutes interview, Riggleman said many of the texts in Meadows’ inbox laid out a “roadmap to an attempted coup.”
“If you’re going to give advice on overturning an election to the Chief of Staff at the White House, then you should share that advice with the rest of the state. North Dakotans deserve to know whether their Senator and their Attorney General – who was a US Attorney at the time – were conspiring to invalidate the will of the people,” said Democratic-NPL Party Chair Patrick Hart. “We need to hear answers from Wrigley and Cramer immediately.”
