So, it turns out that Trump-backed Arkansas Senator John Boozman disparaged the former president for disputing the 2020 election.

“Once the state agrees that hey, this is… this is the results…we’re going forward, then you have to let it go,” Boozman said. “This deal about Mike Pence being able to… That was absolutely nuts… that was just,” Boozeman added. “You know, if you’ve got a situation where somehow the Vice President can, they’d never leave office. You know, it’s just, it’s crazy… So I think once they certify, constitutionally, that’s where it ends and that’s Tom Cotton’s opinion.”
“Do you think some of that may have gone on a little bit in the 2020 election?” Boozman is asked.
“I’ve not seen, and again this might change tomorrow, but I’ve not seen anyone come forward, kind of like in, when we had the deal in Florida with Bush, you know the recount there,” Boozman said. “Nobody ever proved that… that wasn’t a good count. But with this deal, I mean nobody’s shown anything to prove that, you know there’s enough, if there was irregulation, nothing really in this last election would have changed it… in the states.”
Boozman then compared the 2020 election dispute to the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.
“I, you know, I don’t blame him in the sense that, we hear this out of Trump, this is a guy that during his entire presidency, you had a situation where the Democrats were doing the same thing. You know, they declared him illegitimate… and actually, the thing to watch as you go forward, is this investigation, that this guy is doing, a special prosecutor, about what all went on regarding the FBI and all of the Russia Collusion stuff they made up. You know, so, it works both ways,” he said.
Boozman earlier misquoted the president in order to blame him for the January 6 riot.
“I think he made a really tragic mistake in the way that he handled it,” Boozman said in January 2021.
“It was a huge mistake” for Trump to urge his followers “to march on the Capitol,” Boozman added, failing to note that Trump stipulated that the marchers “peacefully make their voices heard,” or that the riot started before any of those marchers could reach the capitol grounds.
Nonetheless, Boozman voted to acquit Donald Trump after the second politically motivated impeachment of the president.
“While former President Donald Trump bears some responsibility for what happened that day, the perpetrators who planned, coordinated and assaulted the Capitol building must be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law and brought to justice,” Boozman said in a statement.
