Republican lawmakers in Washington are fracturing over President Donald Trump’s futile effort to persuade Congress to overturn his re-election defeat, as his allies spar with conservatives who say the Constitution doesn’t give them the power to override voters.

Trump further undermined his case after he asked Georgia’s secretary of state on Saturday to “find” the nearly 12,000 votes he’d need to overcome President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the state -- a call some Democrats say would amount to another impeachable offense by the outgoing president.
