Josh Hawley broadcasts that he’ll object to Biden’s win being licensed
Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) announced that he would object to the electoral college certification process and contest President-elect Joe Biden’s victory when Congress meets for its joint session on Jan. 6.
“At the very least, Congress should investigate allegations of electoral fraud and take steps to ensure the integrity of our elections. But Congress hasn’t acted so far, ”said Hawley.
Millions of voters who are concerned about the integrity of the elections deserve to be heard. I will appeal on their behalf on January 6th pic.twitter.com/kTaaPPJGHE

Hawley is the first Senator to object to certification. Objections are doomed: Although objections open the results to a floor debate and vote in each chamber, the Democratic-controlled House and several Senate Republicans have recognized Biden’s victory. The challenge would also fail in the Senate vote in the House of Representatives, even if Vice President Mike Pence acted as a tiebreaker.
President Donald Trump has continued to claim that despite all evidence to the contrary, the election was fraudulent. Though his legal efforts to reverse election results have failed, he has put his hopes on Republicans who will question the January 6 election results.
See you in Washington, DC on January 6th. Dont miss it. Follow information!
