Vice President Mike Pence is under immense pressure to do something radical on January 6th when the Electoral College meets to count votes: to ignore pro-Biden electors from battleground states suspected of voter fraud. A lawsuit filed Sunday by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) seeks to grant Pence the legal authority to do so.

Rep. Mo Brooks (AL) is also planning to challenge election results in battleground states accused of fraud. “It’s pretty clear that the momentum is growing in support of the objections to states’ submittals of Electoral College votes because of their flawed election systems and render them unworthy of trust,” said Brooks, who is backed by more than 30 House Republicans. 

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) joined the challenge on Wednesday: “I cannot vote to certify without pointing out the unprecedented effort of mega corporations, including Facebook and Twitter, to interfere in this election, in support of Joe Biden,” said Hawley. “At the very least, Congress should investigation allegations of voter fraud and adopt measures to secure the integrity of our elections. But Congress has so far failed to act.”

In his statement, Hawley cited Democrats’ objections to electoral votes in 2004 and 2016 based on concerns about election integrity. “They were praised by Democratic leadership and the media when they did. And they were entitled to do so. But now those of us concerned about the integrity of this election are entitled to do the same.”

Now that challenges have been made in both chambers of Congress, lawmakers may be forced to delay the January 6th vote-count and hold debates on up to 6 contested states’ election results. Each debate will last two hours, followed by a vote in each chamber to approve or disqualify that state’s slate of electoral votes. Votes would be trashed only if both chambers agree to do so. The last time this happened was in January 2005 when lawmakers objected to Ohio’s electoral votes following George W. Bush’s narrow victory over John Kerry.

This final attempt to reverse the outcome of the 2020 election has little chance of success. 

Several GOP Senators including Mitch McConnell (R-KY) do not wish to participate in the objection, and fear that it could wind up turning into a referendum on Trump and thus split the Republican Party. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) criticized the effort to reverse election results as “undemocratic” and “revolting.”

According to official results, President Trump received 232 electoral votes and Joe Biden received 306.

  1. Mitch is a Rino controlled by his Chinese wife. He’s a traitor that should be shot.

  2. Everyone knows that Trump won the election. It isn’t mathematical that Biden could have won. The election was stolen and the Biden family is crooked as a dog’s hind leg and that alone should be enough to disqualify him and Kamala.
    Come on courts and all Republicans. Get this fixed

  3. Yeah Josh Hawley, Missouri’s Constitutional Lawyer and Senator. The “Show-Me” State is alive and well. There was fraud, there was changing of the rules by compromised Judges, not State Congress’ as the Constitution requires. All the contested States have Republican Congressional Representation, but the local and state judges (of whom most if not all were Democrats) saw fit to change the rules. Democrats, you reap what you sow— you caused this problem.

  4. As an American citizen our Congressional Delegation has taken an oath to uphold the law. If a law has been broken, then they are required to investigate the crime. Voter Fraud is a crime. If there is one dead person’s vote in the election it is a crime. Those election officials in each County or Parish in America are responsible to make sure the elections results are correct. If they choose to turn a blind eye to the fraud, they have committed a crime.

    Both the Senate and House Members are required by their oath to uphold the law. If they choose not to they should be asked to resign their position or be tried for treason.

    I want to know the truth and I believe every American needs to know the truth. Without the truth Democracy will fail. Is that what our Founding Fathers wanted? We have had many patriots die for this one truth.honesty. Without it there is no trust and a Government will fail.

  5. Every single state should be challenged and debated, even those that were awarded to President Trump. That way the delay can be maximized to afford the best chance for the election to become subject to other provisions of law.

  6. Lucaya Democratic party participated in the theft of the election of 2020 they are criminals there conspirators their treasonous anti-American Behavior should be recognized they should all be removed from Congress the President should call in the National Guard and the military and the scored each and every single Democratic senator out of the House of Representatives and arrested for conspiracy against the Constitution

  7. Vice President Pence, I believe in what your doing, but REST ASURE , NOT DENYING THOSE “ IRREGULAR ELECTORAL VOTES “, WILL SHOW THE WORLD HOW WEAK AMERICA IS , AN OUR DEMISE WILL FOLLOW. GOD BLESS.

  8. The Republican party is already split into THE PATRIOTS’ PARTY and the sell out RINOS. RINOS are almost the same as Democrats. Without certification of Donald J TRUMP as our PRESIDENT; the stage is set to Primary Out RINOS; starting in 2022 for some Senate races and all House Seats. It will continue into 2024 with a PRESIDENTIAL-Senate- House. Then, in 2026 we will rid the Senate and House completely of RINOS and Democrats. We will have POLITICAL LEADERS that put Country before Party.
