With January 6th coming up quickly, attorneys such as Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, to name a few, are working feverishly to overturn the election via lawsuits while other everyday patriots are focusing on challenging the Electoral College vote results on Jan. 6 during a joint session of Congress.
If both a House member and senator object, the two chambers would have to meet separately, debate the issue, and then have a majority in both chambers vote to uphold the objection to a state’s slate.
In addition, a few state legislatures are holding election integrity hearings. AZ just ordered a forensic audit of the Dominion voting machines in the largest county. A group called, Stop The Steal, is fighting to hold politicians accountable.
In spite of all their efforts, short of a huge Supreme Court victories, Mitch McConnell and GOP Senate RINOs have decided to not back Trump’s team’s efforts on January 6th.
Yes, the Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) who did a great job pushing through 300 federal judges and 3 Supreme Court Justices.
Mitch just acknowledged Joe Biden as President-elect, the winner of the November election, congratulating him from the Senate floor on Tuesday, one day after the Electoral College voters gathered to make their votes. Biden and McConnell had their first known conversation since the election on Tuesday.
Now McConnell is urging Republicans to not object during Congress’s count and certification of the Electoral College vote next month.
From The Hill
McConnell’s made comments during a caucus call on Tuesday, according to two sources familiar with the call, and come as House Republicans are eyeing a challenge to the results on Jan. 6 during a joint session of Congress.
A Republican senator who participated in the call said that McConnell, Senate Republican Whip John Thune (R-S.D.) and Senate Rules Committee Chairman Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) all urged colleagues not to object to states’ electoral votes when they are received on the House floor next month.
McConnell warned that any GOP senator who signed onto a House Republican objection to a state’s electoral votes would then force the Senate to debate and vote on the objection, putting fellow GOP senators in a bad position.
The GOP leader said an objection “isn’t in the best interest of everybody.”
No Senate Republicans indicated during the call that they are currently planning to object.
“Not that I heard,” said Sen. Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), asked if anyone indicated that they would object during the call.
Sen. John Barrasso (Wyo.), the No. 3 GOP senator, added that he hasn’t “heard of any” GOP senator willing to object next month.
“I think that there was encouragement on the phone for us to accept the result, as much as it’s not what we, you know, would have envisioned for the next four years, and to try to do what’s best for American people, which is to look forward,” said Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) said about the call.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) has said he will object as part of next month’s Electoral College count and is likely to gain support from other Trump allies in the House.
But to successfully force a debate and vote on his objection he’ll need support from at least one GOP senator. That’s only happened twice since 1887, according to the Congressional Research Service.
