Skip to comments.Some Republican Senators Are on Board With Electoral College Challenge: Rep. Taylor Greene
Posted on 12/24/2020 9:15:35 AM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) said that some Republican senators will join an effort to challenge Electoral College votes when the joint session of Congress meets on Jan. 6.
The process must be initiated by requires one senator and one House representative. In addition to Greene, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) and a number of GOP House lawmakers have pledged to challenge the votes.
“We have a very strong case, and our numbers are growing strong,” she said of the effort on Dec. 22 on Newsmax. “We talked to senators, and we’re good to go for this objection.”
Greene didn’t say which senators would join the challenge. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Sen.-elect Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.) have both suggested they might get involved, but there’s been no public confirmation.
If an objection is filed during the joint session for key states that cast Electoral College votes for Joe Biden, each chamber will have to hold a debate for two hours on whether to disqualify a state’s votes. Then a vote will have to be held in each chamber on whether to throw the votes out.
Greene said she spoke with President Donald Trump about possibly challenging the votes, saying: “I didn’t run for Congress to sit by and be quiet, so I called the president.
“I support him, I voted for him, just like everyone else, and I’m happy to support him in this trying time.”

We will find out who the true patriots are!
But not enough. No challenge on January 6th has any chance of winning in either house of Congress.
I agree. They should do it anyway.
You'll have evidence of that when they vote to override Trump's of the defense bill veto on Tuesday.
The ANTI-PATRIOTS will be EXPOSING their Red asses for all of us to see!! VOTE AGAINST ALL OF THEM NEXT TIME!!
The true patriots will be known to history as having rightfully stood up for our republic!
That is true! Will show who the elites are. They think we will go away!!!!!
Democrats will have a majority in the House. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see how this is going to unfold.
I can count them on my fingers.
I can count them on my fingers.
Democrats need a new speaker just in case.
Its all for show I figure but a lot of folks are sucked into it not understanding the devil in the details you point out.
Everybody write to your senators! Here is what I wrote to mine last night…
The evidence is absolutely OVERWHELMING that the Democrats stole the election in the Democrat-machine big cities in the five key swing states.
We need you to PLEASE stand up for our country and challenge the Electoral College in support of your House colleagues.
I urge you to ignore McConnell's threat to you to not object during Congress’s count and certification next month. He is a quisling, afraid to stand up for what is right. He said "an objection isn’t in the best interest of everybody." He could not be more wrong. A brave, princpled objection would stand up for the 75 million Americans who have been hideously disenfranchised by the Democrat's dirty and grossly illegal election fraud.
Representive Mo Brooks is showing the courage, leadership and fortitude we desperately need in the House.
Will you be counted among those who stand for Americans in the Senate and act to preserve the Republic? You may personally lose status, lose committee assignments and maybe even lose your Senate career. But what is the point in preserving that career if you helped cause the downfall of our great nation? Is that the ignominy you want on your record?
Yes. Under current rules, Trump won’t have a majority of the house nor the majority of the senate to reject the “certified” electoral votes of the contested states. However Trump should consider changing the rules.
Even if we get a couple to object, they will then need to debate it, then vote, right?
There is Zero chance the feckless republicants have the votes to overturn the cheat. The uniparty will continue on.
How pathetic that out of all the GOP senators, we have only a couple “maybes”, and that’s it!
Mark the ones who lack the courage to stand.
