Senator Ted Cruz has chosen his side, and he stands with the will of the American people and the President of the United States. He and other GOP Senators will OBJECT to the Certification of the Electoral College, and DEMAND and emergency audit.
A coalition of GOP Senators led by Cruz will object to the certification process. They include Sens. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.; James Lankford, R-Okla.; Steve Daines, R-Mont.; John Kennedy, R-La.; Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and Mike Braun, R-Ind.; as well as Sens.-elect Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo.; Roger Marshall, R-Kansas; Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn., and Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala.
Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri was the first Republican Senator to make a stand earlier in the week, and he will of course join the group as well.
“Voter fraud has posed a persistent challenge in our elections, although its breadth and scope are disputed. By any measure, the allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election exceed any in our lifetimes,” the lawmakers say in a statement.
According to sources, it is Senator Ted Cruz who is orchestrating the effort and gathering Senators to object to this fraudulent election.
The Senators are calling for Congress to appoint an Electoral Commission to conduct a 10-day emergency audit of the election returns in states where results are disputed. Something that shouldn’t be hard to do if we truly are a free nation.
The Senators cite a precedent from 1877 between Samuel Hayes and Rutherford Hayes, where allegations of fraud existed in multiple states.
“In 1877, Congress did not ignore those allegations, nor did the media simply dismiss those raising them as radicals trying to undermine democracy,” the lawmakers say. “Instead, Congress appointed an Electoral Commission — consisting of five Senators, five House Members, and five Supreme Court Justices — to consider and resolve the disputed returns.”
“We should follow that precedent. To wit, Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states. Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed,” they say.
Without that, they will vote against the certification.
“Accordingly, we intend to vote on January 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified’ (the statutory requisite), unless and until that emergency 10-day audit is completed,” they say in the statement.
This is a developing story as Cruz is expected to add more Senators to this list.
