Charlie Sykes, the founder of the conservative website The Bulwark, on Tuesday bemoaned what he fears has become “the new litmus test for many Republicans.”

Namely, having “no sense of shame whatsoever” in their ongoing efforts to peddle former President Donald Trump’s election lies about the 2020 election.

“Whatever’s been happening since January 6th, you have these folks who are escalating it,” Sykes told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace.

“They have no sense of shame whatsoever, they are getting encouragement from Mar-a-Lago and this is becoming, I think, the new litmus test for many Republicans,” the conservative pundit continued.

It poses “a real danger going forward in undermining confidence in elections,” he added. “I don’t think it’s overstated at all.”

The report said draconian restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the virus in 2020 reduced virus mortality rates by just 3.2 per cent — equating to 6,000 fewer deaths in Europe and 4,000 fewer in the US. The researchers hit out at modelling from researchers at Imperial College London, led by Professor Neil Ferguson - dubbed Professor Lockdown for his gloomy forecasts that are credited with spurring the UK into lockdown.
