GOP Rep on Trump asking about using military to overturn election: ‘It was just a conversation’


During a segment on CNN this Saturday, Rep. John Curtis (R-UT) was asked about the recent report surrounding President Trump’s alleged inquiry about an idea raised by his recently pardoned former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who suggested during a recent appearance on Newsmax that President Trump has “military capabilities” at his disposal to overturn the 2020 election results.

“You have to remember it was a conversation, not a revolution,” Curtis said. “There are far more important things in front of us and I think we need to move on and tackle them.

Pushing back, CNN’s Bianna Golodryga told Curtis that “we can’t just grow numb to incidents that would happen in a third-world country.”

But Curtis insisted that the subject of martial law was only brought up in a conversation and wasn’t intended as a plan.

“We don’t know anything about the details, and you just can’t get me all riled up about that,” he said.
