Hawley and Cruz: How to lie without quite lying

For Republicans in Congress planning to vote Wednesday against certifying Joe Biden’s presidential election victory, the lie has become its own justification.

The lie is that Donald Trump was deprived of re-election due to fraud or some other shenanigans. Numerous courts have rejected those allegations, and the Justice Department hasn’t found any evidence of wrongdoing widespread enough to overturn the election results. The president and a few of his nuttier allies keep flogging claims that the election was stolen — and Trump might even believe his own lies about the election, if we’re to believe the recordings of his weekend phone call where he pressured Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “recalculate” that state’s voting results.
