Krebs was asked on Face The Nation why Trump is waging a disinformation campaign against the US electoral system and he replied, “I don’t know if it’s deliberate or willful blindness, but the outcome of the 2020 election is clear. The key states have certified themselves in the last few days and will continue to certify in the run-up to the seating arrangements for the electoral college on December 14th. But this race is over. We have to prepare for January 20th and the next government. “
Here is the Cancer tweet referenced in the Face The Nation interview:
I would much rather watch football now. Still, everyone should be watching the rally to see an active, coordinated #disinfo campaign that is undermining confidence in our elections. This is not blunt for candidates. This is corrosive to democracy. I’d rather watch football.

Trump seems to believe that if he can convince enough Americans that the election has been rigged, he can void the election result. Trump is waging an active disinformation campaign against the US election, and the results could be disastrous for the Republican Party if several thousand Republicans stay home and do not vote in the Georgia Senate runoff.
Every single Republican standing with Trump is waging a disinformation campaign that is a crime against the democratic electoral process.
