President Trump and his supporters aren’t giving up their fight to overturn the results of the election on the basis of widespread voter fraud committed by Democrats on November 3.
But it will all be decided when Congress convenes to certify the Electoral College results on January 6.
And this new lawsuit targeting Mike Pence could stop Joe Biden from becoming President.
On January 6, members of the House and Senate will meet for a joint session of Congress in order to certify the Electoral College results.
As Vice President, it will be the duty of Mike Pence to reside as President over the Senate during the January 6 joint session of Congress, where his role will be to officially certify the results.
But Congressman Louie Gohmert and several other adamant Trump supporters in the U.S. House just filed a lawsuit targeting Mike Pence’s role as President over the Senate during the January 6 joint session of Congress.
In the lawsuit, Gohmert, claimed the 1887 Electoral College Count Act is unconstitutional because it limits the Vice President’s powers under the U.S. Constitution. The lawsuit urges Mike Pence to reject the current slate of electors and replace it with the pro-Trump electors chosen by Republicans in several key states like Arizona.
The Hill reports:
The lawsuit focuses on Pence’s role in an upcoming Jan. 6 meeting of Congress to count states’ electoral votes and finalize Biden’s victory over President Trump. Typically, the vice president’s role in presiding over the meeting is a largely ceremonial one governed by an 1887 federal law known as the Electoral Count Act.
But the Republican lawsuit, which was filed against Pence in his official capacity as vice president, asks a federal judge in Texas to strike down the law as unconstitutional. The GOP plaintiffs go further: They ask the court to grant Pence the authority on Jan. 6 to effectively overturn Trump’s defeat in key battleground states.
January 6 is “D-Day” for President Trump and his supporters.
Mike Pence is front-and-center.
And Louie Gohmert’s lawsuit, if successful, will allow Pence to perform his duty under the Constitution and replace the current slate of electors with the pro-Trump slate chosen by Republicans.
Are you optimistic about the joint session of Congress coming up on January 6?
