President Trump Thanks Alabama Congressman Who Vows To Challenge Electoral College Votes
President Trump issued a thank you to Alabama GOP Rep. Mo Brooks, who recently stated that he was going to challenge the Electoral College votes on January 6th when Congress meets to certify the results of the presidential election.
“Thank you to Representative Mo Brooks!” Trump posted on Twitter.
Brooks has echoed a lot of the concerns the president has raised concerning voter fraud during the presidential election.
“I’m doing this because in my judgment this is the worst election theft in the history of the United States,” Brooks told The Hill this week. “And if there was a way to determine the Electoral College outcome using only lawful votes cast by eligible American citizens, then Donald Trump won the Electoral College.”
Brooks added that he is “not focused on what is in the legal pleadings in all these lawsuits all over the country.
“There’s some number of votes that probably were illegal in some different places to some degree,” he told The Hill. “That is not abnormal.”
Brooks went on to say that it’s “extremely difficult in a court of law to determine how many illegal votes were cast and who they were cast for.”
“And that is one of the reasons why the FBI, the Justice Department, and the federal judiciary are wholly inadequate for handling this issue,” he added.
According to the Congressional Research Center, one person from the House and one person from the Senate are required to challenge a particular state’s Electoral College returns in writing. If that requirement is met, both the House and Senate would have two hours of debate and then decide whether or not to accept the returns.
Both chambers have to agree to exclude a state’s return from the Electoral College vote.
There are still folks out there trying to fight the good fight concerning the integrity of the voting system. Don’t lose heart. This isn’t over yet.
