President Donald Trump’s supporters across the nation are ramping up efforts to contest the November 3 election results ahead of Wednesday’s official certification by Congress. Some Pennsylvania lawmakers are appealing to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Georgia Republicans who just received a last-minute court hearing.
The frantic efforts are taking place just as Republicans are also trying to win two US Senate runoff elections in Georgia that will determine control of the Senate, while the president’s lawyers place their bets on an appeal they sent to the US Supreme Court on top of urging legislatures in as many as six states to object to the certifications. This is all 100 percent Constitutional.
Republican congressional leaders are saying that up to as many as two dozen, possibly more, representatives in the House and at least one senator, Josh Hawley of Missouri, will object to the chosen electors for Joe Biden in several contested battleground states, which bring on a debate that will last at least a two-hours on Wednesday. A little birdie told me that right now Mitch McConnell is hammering Senator Hawley to get him to stand down and not object on January 6.
McConnell is an odd duck. He knows that the Republicans in the House and Senate did very well in the 2020 elections as the down ballot to the president, because they rode on Trump’s coattails. However, McConnell has abandoned the president in his quest to overturn the election with massive voter fraud in the key battleground states. He hasn’t lifted a finger to help a president of his own party when his involvement could have given weight to the election fraud that robbed over 74 million Trump voters across the country.
Adding to the pressure, on Thursday, two dozen Republican state lawmakers in Pennsylvania, spearheaded by state Senator Doug Mastriano, sent letters to McConnell and House minority leader Republican Kevin McCarthy, asking that Pennsylvania’s election results not be accepted by Congress until further investigation of irregularities is completed.
“Actions taken by the PA State Supreme Court and Secretary [of State Kathy] Boockvar in the 2020 general election were so fraught with inconsistencies, improprieties and irregularities that the results for the Office of President of the United States cannot be determined in our state,” the lawmakers wrote. “This election is an embarrassment to our nation.”
And it was an embarrassment, yet the Democrats are not capable of being embarrassed. Wouldn’t you think Joe Biden would be shouting from the rooftops if the Democratic Party really wasn’t involved in massive election fraud in the 2020 election?
“We the undersigned ask that you dispute the certification until an investigation is completed,” they added to the letter that was signed by 8 state senators or senators-elect and 19 state House members, 27 lawmakers in all.
Momentum was building among Trump supporters in Georgia after the GOP-controlled state Senate Judiciary Committee approved an audit of voting machines in Fulton County, and they held a hearing where one expert claimed he could get into voting machines that weren’t supposed to be able to connect to the Internet. The Democrats must have lied when they said the machines could not access the Internet early on in the aftermath of the election. The expert said he was able to do this now, during the two Senate runoff elections!
The Superior Court in Fulton County scheduled a hearing for Monday, accepting an emergency petition from a group of Georgian voters called Voter GA demanding a “forensic inspection” of November mail-in ballots.
“We have just received notice that we will be granted a hearing Monday, January 4 at 11 am on our Emergency Petition to visually inspect and forensically examine all Fulton County mail-in ballots,” petitioner Garland Favorito told The Epoch Times. “That includes those processed at State Farm Arena and those that auditors detected as potentially fraudulent.”
The Trump legal team filed an appeal with the US Supreme Court to challenge the results in Wisconsin while at the same time they were urging Republican legislatures in up to six states to object to the certifications on Wednesday: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
“President Trump continues to fight for the American people and election integrity,” Trump legal team lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in a statement this week when they filed a lawsuit arguing against Wisconsin’s results to the US Supreme Court. “We have to restore integrity to our process through every legal and constitutionally viable mechanism. America has seen the extent of corruption in this election and is demanding swift resolution.
“We hope that state legislatures in Wisconsin and the five other states will not wait on a court order but exercise their plenary constitutional authority and we continue to appeal to them as well as seek judicial remedy.”
