A majority of House Republicans are anticipated on Jan. 6 to contest the electoral votes handed to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
CNN reports that more than 140 GOP representatives will refuse to certify Biden’s highly contended votes in a presidential election that has been riddled with fraudulent vote counts, hidden or erased information and questionable procedures.
Refusing to sweep fraud under the rug
As Democrats and the mainstream media continue to bury massive amounts of valid evidence identified as voter fraud in key swing states – that turned the election away from President Donald Trump toward Biden after midnight on Election Day – judges not wanting to oppose the Democrats are still raising many hurdles for Republicans to challenge the vote counts.
“Numerous affidavits testifying to various types of election fraud have been filed in courts in several swing states,” The Western Journal reported. “These affidavits constitute evidence of fraud, but those allegations have yet to be proven by state courts, and the legal action remains ongoing.”
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) is one of the leaders in the refusal to certify the problematic election results via the courts, and as a result, both chambers of Congress are voting on the issue.
“I cannot vote to certify the Electoral College results on January 6 without raising the fact that some states – particularly Pennsylvania – failed to follow their own state election laws,” Hawley recently tweeted.
Even though many acknowledge Hawley’s earnest quest for justice and fairness in the vote count, Business Insider suggests that the GOP House member is heading much of the opposition to attract Trump supporters for a potential 2024 White House run of his own.
Against all odds?
However, because Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) does not stand against certifying Biden’s electoral votes – along with Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) – Hawley and the large number of Republicans standing behind him in the House, including Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), will likely not see overwhelming support in the Senate.
“[W]hile California Rep. Kevin McCarthy is a great minority leader, he does not hold the same power and influence over decision-making in the House that McConnell does in the Senate, and is thus not as capable of keeping his caucus in line one way or the other,” the Journal noted. “McCarthy has neither publicly denounced nor praised the House Republicans who reportedly plan to challenge the Electoral College vote certification.”
A number of reasons have been offered for the bold stand against Biden – and for election integrity.
“Moreover, many House Republicans who believe the election was unfairly stolen from the president have nothing to lose by taking such controversial action, as they either represent heavily Republican districts or banked on Trump’s energy to win,” the report added. “Loyalty to Trump is currency in some conservatives’ circles, so taking a stand over the election results puts some in safe territory for their political future.”
In an attempt to stand on safe ground with the establishment and mainstream media, McConnell proceeded to look past the rife fraud and try to bury the voting scandals without investigating the matter any further.
“Our country has officially a president-elect and a vice-president elect,” McConnell said the day after Biden was announced to have “officially” received enough Electoral College votes to win the presidency.
Giving little acknowledgement to the foul play witnessed in numerous battleground states affecting millions of votes, the Kentucky senator attempted to make it look as if Democrats stealing an election was not an issue.
“”Many millions of us had hoped the presidential election would yield a different result, but our system of government has processes to determine who will be sworn in on Jan. 20,” McConnell insisted, according to another report.
Not on my watch …
Many prominent Republicans are unabashedly calling out Biden and Democrats’ alleged foul play in the election.
“Among the more than one dozen Republican House members who have already publicly said they’ll vote against counting the electoral votes next week are Reps. Mo Brooks of Alabama – who’s spearheading the effort – Jody Hice of Georgia, Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey and Joe Wilson of South Carolina,” CNN informed. “Included in that group are eight Republican lawmakers from Pennsylvania, who announced their intentions in a joint statement earlier Thursday.”
It was also mentioned that a handful of incoming Republican House members have announced their upcoming refusal to certify the electoral votes given to Biden, including Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Rep.-elect Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.), Rep.-elect Diana Harshbarger (R-Tenn.) and Rep.-elect Lauren Boebert (R-Co.).
