Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee joined “Fox & Friends” Wednesday to express concerns about elected officials taking the “easy way out” in regards to election fraud allegations.

“I wish all the Republicans, in fact, let me say this, I wish all the Democrats – all the elected officials would demand a full accounting for how the ballots were tabulated,” Huckabee said in reference to a tweet made by Donald Trump criticizing lawmakers for not challenging the election results.

“I think too many of our politicians take the easy way out,” Huckabee continued. “They don’t want to rock the boat. They don’t want to be controversial. But they were elected to make tough decisions and a tough decision would be to call for a full accounting and absolute transparency.”

Huckabee noted that the Democrats have the most to gain if they were to demand an audit of the election results.

“If they truly believe that this election was absolutely done with integrity, then they ought to be the ones standing up and insisting for a full audit. That way they can say to the rest of us, ‘you see, we won it fair and square, there was no funny business, now you guys shut up for the next four years.’ And know what, that’s what we would have to do. Instead, we’re going to have four years of controversy.”

More than 100 House Republicans and a dozen Senate Republicans have said they will support Trump in the efforts to challenge the election results in battleground states.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Senate GOP members have urged members not to join the efforts.

However, Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley went against McConnell’s advisement and stated he will also challenge the election results. He was soon followed by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and others.

“Let there be transparency. Pull the curtains back,” Huckabee said. “That’s what America needs to know because if this election was all on the up and up, then Joe Biden has nothing to fear, in fact he has every reason to say with confidence, ‘I’m going to be sworn in as president.’ But if the funny business went on… and you don’t investigate it, then you leave this cloud over Joe Biden and his election.”

The Washington Post recently published an article saying that Trump continues to challenge the election without evidence.

“The press is pretending there’s no evidence.” Huckabee said referring to the article. “That’s simply a lie. There is evidence, and that’s what’s not been looked at.”

Congress will be certifying the election results today beginning at noon.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
