Seth Meyers was blown away by how shut a bunch of “dangerous rip-off artists” got here to overthrowing the nation’s democracy.
On “Late Night time” Wednesday, Meyers reviewed footage of the fourth Jan. 6 committee listening to from earlier this week. The Home panel investigating the U.S. Capitol assault interviewed Rusty Bowers, an Arizona GOP official who stated that after the 2020 election, former President Donald Trump’s authorized adviser Jenna Ellis informed him that that they had proof of electoral fraud however she didn’t have it on her.
“That is simply me, but when I used to be making ready for a excessive stakes assembly with a outstanding Republican official to persuade them to overturn their state’s election outcomes, reversing the desire of 80 million individuals and probably frightening a constitutional disaster, I feel I’d bear in mind to carry the proof. However that’s simply me,” Meyers joked.
“They really thought they may get away with saying that they had the proof, simply by no means having it with them. These persons are such dangerous rip-off artists. It’s truly outstanding how shut they got here to overthrowing American democracy,” he added.
