Comstock urged her fellow Republicans to ditch the former president – whom she mockingly described as the “patron saint of sore losers” – if they wanted to win the election. Trump lost Republicans in the White House. The GOP also lost control of the House and Senate during its tenure.
Comstock served in the House from 2015 to 2019. Last month she joked that if Trump “disappears tomorrow, I don’t think you would have many Republicans in the search group.”
A key step for his party should be a full investigation into the deadly U.S. Capitol riot, Comstock said. Republicans should “be at the forefront of finding answers to the insurgency and diminishing power of QAnon and the other conspiracy theories Mr. Trump has fueled.” Instead, Republicans opposed a bipartisan commission to investigate the violence.
“It’s not the future, and Republicans need to stop fearing it,” Comstock said of Trump. “He will continue to harm the party if we do not face the facts of January 6 head-on. “
“Republicans need to be more confident in their policies and stop being afraid of a dangerous and diminished man who has divided the country and now divides our party,” she concluded. “Reconsider the commission, let the investigation continue, run and win in 2022 on the truth.”
