On Monday, Alabama Republican Representative Mo Brooks said “dozens” of House Republicans may object to the final Electoral College results. On January 6th, Congress will meet to tally the votes, but not without some level of push-back. Brooks has declared that the “overwhelming” and “compelling” evidence of “serious voter fraud and theft” is worthy of contesting the 306 electoral votes given to President-elect Joe Biden.
In speaking to Fox & Friends, Brooks said, “there are dozens in the House of Representatives who have reached that conclusion, as I have…we’re going to sponsor and co-sponsor objections to the Electoral College vote returns of Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada and maybe more depending on where we collectively want to go.”
Brooks says it remains to be seen whether any senators will join them in objecting to the results, as allegedly Senate Republican leaders have suggested its members to not join the efforts. Senator John Thune (R-SD) said, “I just don’t think it makes a lot of sense to put everybody through this when you know what the ultimate outcome is going to be.”
National Review reports “House Republicans may be able to force a vote on certification of the election, though the effort will almost certainly fail in the Democrat-controlled body.” Brooks, nonetheless, believes it’s worth a fight, pushing back against critics. “Well, it is sad to the extent that we’ve got Republicans who are unwilling to do their homework or unwilling to make tough decisions.”
Results currently stand with Trump receiving 232 Electoral Votes, trailing behind former vice president Joe Biden’s 306 votes.
Trump Campaign: Legislatures in PA, AZ and MI to Hold Hearings on Voter Fraud
The state legislatures of Pennsylvania, Arizona and Michigan will hold hearings on voter fraud after the disastrous and corrupt 2020 presidential election, according to the Trump campaign.
In a statement, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani said, “It’s in everyone’s interest to have a full vetting of election irregularities and fraud. And the only way to do this is with public hearings, complete with witnesses, videos, pictures and other evidence of illegalities from the November 3rd election.”
“There were serious irregularities, we have proof of fraud in a number of states, and it is important for all Americans to have faith in our electoral process,” Trump attorney Jenna Ellis said in a statement. “All we have wanted from the outset is to count every legal vote and discount every illegal vote.”
The first hearing will be held tomorrow in Pennsylvania at the State Senate in Gettysburg where legislators will hear from individuals who have signed affidavits regarding 2020 election fraud. Giuliani will also give a presentation at the hearing.
The Arizona legislature will hold its hearing on Monday, Nov. 30 and the Michigan legislature will hold one on Dec. 1.
The Trump campaign pointed to a section of the Constitution that states state legislatures have the sole authority to select their representatives to the Electoral College, “providing a critical safeguard against voter fraud and election manipulation.”
“State Legislatures are uniquely qualified and positioned to hold hearings on election irregularities and fraud before electors are chosen,” the campaign said.
Michigan, Arizona and Pennsylvania have all been at the center of controversy following November 3, with many claiming all types of fraudulent election activities took place to help Joe Biden gain votes over President Trump. It will be difficult for these state leaders to deny that fraud took place once the Trump campaign presents its case.
Detroit: Dominion Contractor Says She Witnessed Fraudulent Actions During Ballot Counting
In a sworn statement, a contractor for Dominion Voting Systems said that she saw “fraudulent actions take place” at Detroit’s ballot-counting site on Election Day.
Melissa Carone, who was doing IT work at the TCF Center, worked from 6:15 a.m. on Nov. 3 to 4 a.m. the next day, before returning for several more hours later on Nov. 4. Carone said in an affidavit that she “witnessed nothing but fraudulent actions take place.”
She said she saw workers count some ballots four or five times, and noticed that one of the counters had even counted a batch of ballots eight times.
“I confronted my manager, Nick Ikonornakis, saying how big of a problem this was,” Carone said. “Nick told me he didn’t want to hear that we have a big problem. He told me we are here to do assist with IT work, not to run their election.”
Carone also asserted that she saw workers filling out blank ballots after receiving documents that they couldn’t read or had something spilled on them.
“They were supposed to be filling them out exactly like the one they had received but this was not the case at all. The workers would also sign the name of the person that the ballot belonged to—which is clearly illegal,” she said, adding that she contacted the FBI about what she saw.
Dominion didn’t immediately respond to a request by The Epoch Times for comment.
The affidavit was submitted as a supplement to a lawsuit in Michigan.
The suit was brought this week by the Great Lakes Justice Center on behalf of Cheryl Costantino and Edward McCall. Plaintiffs allege that because of multiple irregularities, the election in Wayne County should be voided.
“The main concern is, obviously, the clear fraud that occurred in the counting process of the votes in Wayne County, and the way votes were manufactured by workers that were there,” David Kallman, senior counsel with the center, told The Epoch Times.
David Fink, lead counsel for the city of Detroit, said in an emailed statement to The Epoch Times that the lawsuit raises “baseless allegations, trying to undermine confidence in a well-run election.”
“Like two previous lawsuits, this case is not based upon actual evidence of any election fraud or misconduct,” he added.
The suit was notable because it contains five affidavits from poll observers and a sixth from a city of Detroit worker, all of whom said they witnessed election fraud.
Detroit and other areas of Michigan are such hot spots for election fraud that GOP state senators are demanding a full audit of the 2020 election results.
