'Go to the streets and be as violent as Antifa and BLM': Rep. Louie Gohmert says court rejection of his challenge to Biden's election win leaves Trump supporters no option except to take direct action

President Donald Trump's ally Rep. Louie Gohmert suggested supporters could 'go to the streets and be as violent as Antifa and BLM' in shocking remarks after courts denied his bid to overturn the election.

But Gohmert furiously backpedaled after outrage over his remarks - insisting his words had been 'twisted' and he was not advocating violence.

A U.S. judge on Friday rejected Gohmert's lawsuit against Vice President Mike Pence, who is set to preside Wednesday over a joint session of Congress to formalize the results of the 2020 presidential election.

The judge, appointed by Trump, said Gohmert and other Republicans who filed suit lack standing to bring the legal action seeking to overturn the election of President-elect Joe Biden.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gohmert is now denying that he encouraged violence.
