U.S. House Republicans appear to be gaining momentum in their bid to reject the results of the Electoral College this week. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) tweeted out that around 50 lawmakers joined President Trump and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on a conference call Saturday night to discuss the upcoming joint session of Congress and their plans to reject the results. Brooks concluded his tweet by saying, “Morale is HIGH! FIGHT!”
“The momentum to fight against voter fraud and election theft is rapidly gaining,” Brooks told Fox News. “And as a consequence, the numbers that we had who were supportive yesterday are almost always supplemented by reinforcements today and the next day.
“In my judgment, the primary reason so many congressmen and senators are now coming forward to fight this fight is because so many American citizens have made it known that this fight is critical to America’s future,” Brooks said.
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) is one of the Republican senators against the move to reject the Electoral College results. In a tweet, Romney released a statement saying, “The egregious ploy to reject electors may enhance the political ambition of some, but [it] dangerously threatens our Democratic Republic. The congressional power to reject electors is reserved for the most extreme and unusual circumstances. These are far from it.”
President Trump, meanwhile, is calling for his supporters to “join the march for Trump” in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6. The Trump campaign even has a website, trumpmarch.com, for his supporters to RSVP for the event.
While it’s unclear how all of this will play out, things are definitely shaping up for a wild week ahead in the nation’s capital.
