GOP Rallies Their Forces to Contest Electoral College in Congress

In the wake of a controversial phone call in which President Trump appears to pressure Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to overturn the state’s election results, Republican Senators and Representatives rally to object to the Electoral College certification vote scheduled for Wednesday, January 6.

On Saturday, President Trump reportedly joined a call with 50 Congress members led by Reps. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) and Jim Jordan (R-OH.) to discuss their objection to the disputed 2020 election.

“On January 6, 2021, I have a choice. I can ignore truth, surrender to socialism, and accept Electoral College submissions from states with election systems so badly flawed as to render their vote submissions unreliable, untrustworthy, and unworthy of acceptance,” Brooks stated. “Or I can fight for America and move to reject them.”

Mo Brooks and over 140 GOP Congress members reportedly plan to object at Wednesday’s vote. At least 11 Senate Republicans lead by Ted Cruz, also announced that they will vote for objections to the Electoral College results Wednesday when Congress convenes in a joint session to formally count the vote.

Meanwhile, in a call with Raffensperger – leaked by the Washington Post – the President claimed he won the election and said it’s not fair to take it away.

“You should want to have an accurate election,” President Trump told the secretary of state. “And you’re a Republican.”

Raffensperger responded by saying, “We believe that we do have an accurate election.”
