Trump made clear that his strategy in 2024 is to install unwavering Trump loyalists throughout the state and federal government. 1:  Using his political clout to put Trump loyalists who still believe claims of election fraud  in charge of election administration in key states; A Reuters report looked at the “15 declared Republican candidates for secretary of state in 5 battleground states -- found that 10 out of the 15 candidates have either “declared that the 2020 election was stolen or called for their state’s results to be invalidated or further investigated.” 2: Elect Trump loyalists as governor in key states: include candidates who are likely to do Trump's bidding. .3: Put Trump loyalists in charge of Congress: r estore the Republican majorities in Congress. A majority might be all that's needed to rubber-stamp efforts in the states to swing the election to Trump."

Here is how it works: In February, Grassley announced that he would not vote to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial. But, in a lengthy statement explaining his decision, Grassley expanded on his criticisms of Trump. Grassley flatly stated that Trump lost the election, and harshly criticized Trump's efforts to retain the presidency after his legal efforts failed:

The reality is, [Trump] lost. He brought over 60 lawsuits and lost all but one of them. He was not able to challenge enough votes to overcome President Biden's significant margins in key states. I wish it would have stopped there.

It didn't. President Trump continued to argue that the election had been stolen even though the courts didn't back up his claims. He belittled and harassed elected officials across the country to get his way. He encouraged his own, loyal vice president, Mike Pence, to take extraordinary and unconstitutional actions during the Electoral College count. My vote in this impeachment does nothing to excuse or justify those actions. There's no doubt in my mind that President Trump's language was extreme, aggressive, and irresponsible.

Nine months later, Trump's conduct has only gotten worse. Trump's lies and conspiracy theories about election fraud have gotten wilder. Trump has recast the January 6 attack on the Capitol as a "protest," claiming those charged with crimes are being "persecuted so unfairly."
