Donald Trump and Joe Biden eletoral dispute does not want to end. Almost a dozen Republican Senators and Senators-elect announced that they will vote against the counting electoral votes, on Saturday, January 2, 2021. The Congress are expected support the elected president, Joe Biden — despite the fact that no useful evidence of voter fraud in the the election.
The 11 Republican lawmakers said they choose to support the opposition to the Electoral college votes, if one is brought, and propose an election commission to conduct an “emergency 10-day audit” of the election returns in the “disputed states.”
The group of Republican senators includes; Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, James Lankford of Oklahoma, Steve Daines of Montana, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Mike Braun of Indiana, Sens.-elect Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Roger Marshall of Kansas, Bill Hagerty of Tennessee and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama.
almost a dozen Republican Senators made known their plans to vote against the counting electoral votes of competitive states that Biden won.
The statement reads:
“A fair and credible audit—conducted expeditiously and completed well before January 20—would dramatically improve Americans’ faith in our electoral process and would significantly enhance the legitimacy of whoever becomes our next President. We owe that to the People,”
They added that Congress’ vote on January 6 is the “lone constitutional power remaining to consider and force resolution of the multiple allegations of serious voter fraud on Saturday, January 2, 2021.
Marc Short, the chief of staff for the Vice president, in a statement said, “Vice President (Mike) Pence shares the concerns of millions of Americans about voter fraud and irregularities in the last election. The Vice President welcomes the efforts of members of the House and Senate to use the authority they have under the law to raise objections and bring forward evidence before the Congress and the American people on January 6th”.
Their are doubt that the action Trump’s Republican allies could change the election results, but experts says it could delay the affirmation of Biden’s victory as the winner and the next president.
Recall, on Wednesday Missouri Republican Seen. Josh Hawley became the first senator to announce the plan to oppose to the results. It’s was a significant action, since both House members and senators are required to oppose when Congress counts the electoral votes.
According to two GOP House members, The least of 140 House Republicans are expected to vote against counting electoral votes in the Congress.
On Saturday, Hawley tweeted that he’s “gladsee more Senators joining the fight”.
The 11 GOP senators and Senators-elect did not specify the states that would be rejected by them, on their statement, but Hawley pointed that he plans to object to at least Pennsylvania, the battleground state.
A New York Democrat, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer apparently dismissed the announcement on Saturday from an amount of Republicans tweeting:”Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be President and Vice President of the United States in 18 days.”
Mike Gwin, a spokesperson for Biden, completely reject the plan from the Republican senators, saying it was a “stunt” on Saturday.
“This stunt won’t change the fact that President-elect Biden will be sworn in on January 20th,”
“And these baseless claims have already been examined and dismissed by Trump’s own Attorney General, dozens of courts, and election officials from both parties.”
Trump has been trying to overturn the election by pushing the Congress. Whereas, his past campaign’s attempt to overturn the election results through the courts was not successful.
