Cruz-led GOP has filed a lawsuit against the Elect Oral College Ledge Certificate. Senators demand an emergency audit

Sen. G.O.P., led by Ted Cruz, R-Texas. The group of senators will object to the certifications of the results of the presidential election next January, unless there is an emergency 10-day audit of the results by an election commission.

Cruz and other senators claimed in the Nov. 3 election that “unprecedented allegations of voter fraud and illegal behavior have been demonstrated.”

“Voter fraud has consistently posed a challenge in our elections, although its breadth and scope are disputed,” legislators said in a statement on Saturday. “By any measure, the allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 elections exceeded any in our lifetime.”

To date, no evidence of widespread voter fraud has been presented that could alter election results. Dozens of legal challenges posed by the Trump campaign and its supporters have been rejected by judges across the country.

A source familiar with the GOP’s senators’ efforts told Fox News that it was Cruz who on Wednesday pressed for the official approval of the votes of the Electoral Rule College Ledge, electing J. Biden, the former vice president of the joint session of Congress.

Lawmakers say Democrats objected to the election results in 1969, 2001, 2005 and 2019. “And, in both 1969 and 2005, Democratic senators joined with a member of the Democratic House on whether to accept suffrage in both houses. Presidential voters are being challenged,” he said.

Senators and elected members are urging Congress to appoint a commission to conduct a 10-day emergency audit of election returns in the disputed states. They featured representations of the 1877 race between Samuel Tilden and Rutherford Hayes, which led to allegations of fraud in several states.

The legislators said in a statement that “in 1877, Congress did not ignore those allegations, nor did it simply dismiss the media as a radical attempt to undermine democracy.” “Instead, Congress appointed an election commission – comprising five senators, five members of the House and five judges of the Supreme Court – to consider and resolve the contentious issue.”

“We should follow that example. The rationale is that Congress should immediately appoint an election commission to conduct a 10-day audit of election compensation crisis in disputed states, with full investigative and fact-finding powers. Evaluate the commission’s findings and, if necessary, , May convene a special assembly to certify the change in their opinion. “

If not, the senators intend to vote against the certificate.

“Accordingly, we intend to vote on January 6 to reject voters in the disputed states as ‘not being given regularly’ and ‘legally certified’ (legally required), until and until the emergency 10-day audit is completed.” To the statement.

With Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell publicly acknowledging Biden’s victory, it’s unclear whether he will bring more Republicans to his cause. While lawmakers have noted that most Democrats and some Republicans will vote to certify the results, they argue that will increase public confidence in the audit process.

“These are worthy matters for Congress and we have been entrusted with the responsibility to defend them. We do not take this action lightly. We are not taking action to thwart the democratic process, but to protect it,” he said. “And elections under the constitution were held legally and we must all work together to do as much as we can to restore trust in our democracy.”

Efforts by senators for President Trump’s continued efforts to challenge the election results are a sign of a major victory. Trump has repeatedly claimed that he defeated Biden, beating several states, including Georgia and Arizona, to get the 270 electoral college votes needed to secure the White House.

Trump’s campaign has sparked a number of legal challenges, with Trump himself urging states with Republican governors and legislators to reverse Biden’s victory – as he alleges, without evidence, that widespread voter fraud has tilted the scales.

Senate G.O.P. Leaders are opposed to attempts to challenge Biden’s victory, with McConnell urging Republicans behind closed doors not to fight the election results.

But if the G.O.P. The group of senators will object, and with similar efforts from House Republicans, the joint session of Congress will be dissolved, and then the House and Senate will meet separately to discuss any electoral vote in the state.

After that, each board will vote to accept or reject any contested votes. The House and Senate will then reconvene a joint session.

In the House, at least 10 incoming house G.O.P. No fresh people rip. Moe Brooks, R-Ala. By, endorses the action against the certificate.

The last time this happened (and only the second time in U.S. history) was in January 2005, when President George W. Bush Following Bush’s re-election victory over Massachusetts Democratic challenger John Kerry. A Senate Democrat – Barbara Boxer of California – and a House Democrat – Ohio Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones – objected. In 2017, a handful of House Democrats objected to Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton, but no Democrats in the Senate joined them.

The state’s electoral vote stone will be thrown only if both the House and Senate vote to do so – which is unlikely to get a Democratic majority in the House, and pressure to be ratified by GOP Senate leaders.
