At noon on December 12, 2020, hundreds of thousands of Americans gathered again in Washington, D.C., to protest against election fraud and fraud. The picture shows a rally on the National Mall.
Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama said On Tuesday that he would challenge the electoral College vote when Congress meets jointly on January 6. He also dismissed senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s call for senators not to challenge the Electoral College vote, which Brooks said is more critical.
‘If you give up, the chance of success is zero,’ Brooks said in an interview, according to Newsmax TV. “There is a better chance to fight than to give up, so I will fight.”
Electors in all 50 U.S. states and Washington, D.C. completed their voting on Monday. In Pennsylvania, Georgia, Nevada, Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan and new Mexico, on one side is the state elected democratic electoral college vote democratic candidate senator biden and kamala Harris, but on the other side, republican voters are on the same day announced the “alternative” vote for President trump and vice President Mr. Burns.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke earlier Tuesday, declaring that the electoral college had solved the problem and congratulating Mr. Biden on his election. McConnell also called on senators not to challenge the electoral College results on January 6, according to media reports. Late Tuesday, Ms. Brooks, 66 years old, dismissed Mr. McConnell’s remarks.
“That is exactly what Senator McConnell was hoping for,” he said. “[But] Senator McConnell is not the key. It’s the American voters.”
Brooks: If voters ask for action have confidence that elected officials will respond appropriately
The law allows members of Congress to oppose the electoral votes of any particular state. But a written objection from at least one representative and one Senate member is required. Brooks said he has not asked any senators to object, and does not know if any will.
“It depends on whether senators are willing to fight for our republic, and the electoral system is its foundation,” Brooks said. “If the Senators fight for our republic, we shall count the votes in each state, and demurred according to the state.”
Brooks did not say which states he and his colleagues plan to oppose on the electoral vote, but in the C-SPAN interview, he noted that Pennsylvania, Georgia, Nevada, Wisconsin and Arizona might be targeted.
Brooks said he will discuss with members of Congress what to do on January 6. He said the number of House members expressing support for his efforts was in the “double digits,” but gave no details.
“If voters demand action, Then I am very confident that these elected officials will respond appropriately,” Brooks said.
“So everything is in the hands of the voters.” He said.
State electors vote for president Poll: half of voters think the election was rigged
Newsmax TV reported on Tuesday that a large number of Americans believe there was serious voter fraud in the November 3 election, according to a McLaughlin poll.
The poll showed that in response to a question like “Do you believe there was electoral fraud and voter fraud in the November presidential election between Joe Biden and Donald Trump?” Forty-six percent of voters said yes and only 45 percent said no.
A majority of American voters do not believe that voter fraud did not occur in the presidential election. Worryingly, with so many people voting for Biden in this poll, they still can’t say this was an honest election.
The report says when state presidential electors went to the polls this week, almost half of them said the election and voters were clearly fraudulent.
The national survey questioned 1,000 potential voters on December 9, solstice and December 13.
Representative: The highest level of integrity must be ensured in American elections
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany also said Tuesday that President Trump will not give up and remains engaged in ongoing lawsuits challenging election fraud.
Jeff Van Drew, a New Jersey Republican, is one of 126 Republican congressmen who have signed on to support Texas’s lawsuit against the four states.
“I think it’s because we support the president, I think it’s because we worry about electoral integrity,” he told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday.
“This is the important part. Whatever problems the president may have, we have to make sure that we have the highest level of integrity in an election, and frankly, we don’t, “he said. He said.
A few years ago, he added, “we were better at voting than we are now.”
“Certain states have changed their electoral laws, changed the way they vote in a very serious and major way, without a vote in the legislative assembly or in the legislature,” van Drew said.
“That’s not the Constitution. It’s not the law. I believe in rule of law. They should absolutely meet in the legislature, and obviously in the Legislature. That’s what litigation is about, that’s what the focus is.” He said.
Van Rieu said “the highest level of integrity in the American election” must be ensured.
