“I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president,” Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) told Chuck Todd today in an interview. “I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” he said.

Rep. Lewis added: “I don’t plan to attend the inauguration. It will be the first one that I miss since I’ve been in Congress. You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong, is not right.”
