Senate Republican Majority Leader and Republican Whip urge elected Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) to ignore his constitutional duty to challenge voter lists in states with credible charges of widespread voter fraud and forgery Ballots abound.
Sources close to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) say he will “reach out” to Tuberville in an attempt to arm the elected senator to abandon his party president and persuade him to remain silent in any contesting the electoral college vote.
McConnell and the establishment Republican apparatus in the Senate telegraphed that they would rather betray their party’s incumbent president by not challenging the corrupt votes of the Electoral College of Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Georgia and Arizona, rather than engaging in a “disorderly ground battle.” finalize the results of the electoral college vote.
Several House Republicans, led by US Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL), rallied to accept their constitutional duty. A few US senators – including Tuberville, Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) have indicated that they are also prepared to challenge the tainted results of the states in question.
Republican Senate Whip John Thune (R-SD) said establishment Republicans in the leadership will make it clear to Tuberville that embracing his constitutional duty to suspend the Electoral College vote count in the joint session of Congress on January 6, 2021 be a futile and politically damaging move.
In essence, the Republican leadership of the United States Senate – led by McConnell, Thune, and United States Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) – are more concerned with the evolution of politics than with defending the United States Constitution and the sanctity of the United States. freedom and fairness. elections.
“Ultimately, each senator will have to make their own decision about this, but I think there will be people, yes, who will contact him just to find out” what he is going to do, Thune said of the Tuberville’s intentions.
“I hope in the end that all senators will conclude that this election must be over and it is time to move on,” Thune said.
McConnell, Thune and Blount, the chairman of the Senate Rules Committee, have all advised Republican senators not to challenge the Electoral College vote next month.
Projecting the milquetoast philosophy commonly held by the Republican leadership in the Senate, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), an adviser to the Senate GOP leadership, said: “It basically comes down to motions,” Cornyn said in s opposing the elections. College account. “It’s a futile exercise.”
It is not clear why Senate Republicans are prepared to exercise their constitutionally mandated duties to the American people in challenging voter fraud and corrupt elections.
If the Electoral College vote was challenged during the Joint Session of Congress on January 5, 2021, the election would be referred to the United States House of Representatives where a vote of delegations would take place. As it stands, this tally would favor President Trump.
