Congress Certifies Electoral Votes - GOP Lawmakers Object

(RepublicanDaily.org) – Since media organizations announced Joe Biden was set to be our new president, despite widespread allegations of voter fraud, the nation has been in a state of suspense. In the early hours of Thursday, January 7, Congress certified the Electoral College votes despite the objection of a number of Republicans.

There was a motion to refuse to certify the votes. However, this was defeated 92-7 in the Senate, and 282-138 in the House of Representatives. Despite the earlier efforts of senators like Josh Hawley (R-MO) to start the discussion about voter fraud, the Senate did not have a debate on the motion before the vote.

Donald Trump released a statement shortly after the certification through the Twitter account of one of his aides, Dan Scavino. The statement re-asserted Trump’s view that there had been large-scale election fraud. However, it also stated there would be an “orderly transition” of power on January 20.

So, where do we go from here? Despite the possibility that malevolent actors may have swayed the outcome of 2020’s election, Joe Biden looks set to take over the White House in two weeks’ time. But Trump and his legal team will continue the fight to make America great again, according to the commander-in-chief.
