Paul Mitchell quitting the Rep. Party, citing Trump's efforts to overturn the election



Rep. Paul Mitchell, Republican of Michigan, told CNN that his disgust and dissatisfaction with President Donald Trump's attempts to reverse the election outcome prompted him to ask the House Clerk to change his political allegiance to "independent,"


"This party has to stand up for democracy first, for our Constitution first, and not political considerations," Mitchell said on CNN's "The Lead."


"Not to protect a candidate. Not simply for raw political power, and that's what I feel is going on and I've had enough."

Mitchell, who is retiring at the end of this session of Congress, says he fears that the House GOP leadership's participation in the outgoing President's conspiracy theories and attempts to disenfranchise millions of American voters to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's victory could cause "long-term harm to our democracy."


It is "unacceptable for political candidates to treat our election system as though we are a third-world nation and incite distrust of something so basic as the sanctity of our vote," Mitchell wrote in his letter, which was sent Monday.
