Steven Calabresi, co-founder of Federalist Society, opposed Donald Trump’s impeachment last year. However, he now believes the president’s tweet on Thursday criticizing postal voting and hinting at the idea of ​​postponing election day has crossed the line. Mr. Calabresi wrote an op-ed in The New York Times saying: “Until recently, I took as political hyperbole the Democrats’ claim that President Trump is a fascist.”

“But this latest tweet is fascist and itself constitutes grounds for the immediate dismissal of the president by the House of Representatives and his dismissal by the Senate. “It was Thursday morning that Donald Trump tweeted this universal postal vote, “2020 will be the most INACCURATE and FRAUDULENT election in history.”

“A great embarrassment for the USA.

“Postpone the election until people can vote properly, safely and securely ??? “

Trump’s claims that postal voting leads to increased fraud are unfounded.

Postal voting has increased amid concerns from voters about contracting the coronavirus as they go to the polls.

Mr. Calabresi, who voted for Donald Trump in 2016, has voted Republican in every presidential election since 1980.

He added that elected officials must keep President Trump in check.

The longtime Republican supporter said, “All Republicans in Congress must tell President Trump he cannot postpone the federal election.”

He added: “Anyone who says otherwise should never be elected to Congress again.”

However, Steven Calabresi is not the only conservative who disagrees with Donald Trump.

Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader, said the November 3 election date was not yet set in stone.

He made the remark during a TV interview.

While Kevin McCarthy, Republican House Leader, made it clear that “never in the history of federal elections have we ever held an election and we should move forward with our elections.”

The Federalist Society is pushing for an originalist and textualist interpretation of the Constitution.
