Citing possible electoral fraud, eleven US Republican senators opposed the certification of the result of the US presidential election 2020.
The House and Senate are scheduled to meet on Wednesday January 6. There is talk of certifying the victory of Democrat Joe Biden in the presidential election in the United States.
This procedure should be a simple formality, but the task has become much more complicated to install Joe Biden in the White House. Why? Because eleven Republican senators have refused this certification by Congress, reported Red State.
In a statement made public on Saturday, January 2, the elected officials thus demanded that Congress appoint “an electoral commission, with full authority to investigate” probable “electoral fraud”. Indeed, since the result of the ballot − first announced by the American media − the Trump camp has continued to challenge the billionaire’s defeat in court.
The commission, requested by the eleven Republican senators, should “conduct a ten-day emergency audit on the results in the states” where the vote was very close between the two candidates. In the absence of an audit, “we will vote on January 6 to reject the voters of the disputed states” the press release stated.
Vice President Mike Pence, as the president of the Senate, is the person who will preside over the count. He has signaled official support for the challenge. Pence’s chief of staff released a statement on the issue, according to BizPac Review: “Vice President Pence shares the concerns of millions of Americans about voter fraud and irregularities in the last election.”
Senators also lamented: “The allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election exceed any we have known in our lives.” The states concerned could subsequently revise their electoral results.
As a reminder, Wednesday, December 30, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley was one of the first to challenge Joe Biden’s victory. He had announced his intention to oppose the certification of the Biden victory at the ceremony scheduled for January 6.
