Eleven Republican senators, led by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, announced Saturday that they would object to the certification of states’ Electoral College votes when Congress meets on Jan. 6.
As of now, 686 of you have petitioned Congressman Peter Welch to investigate allegations of fraud. Is a petition treason? The First Amendment protects our right “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” What could be more American?
Vermont Congressman Peter Welch will not support an investigation into alleged 2020 General Election electoral fraud, either before or after Inauguration Day on Jan. 20 he said at a Montpelier press conference Tuesday.
Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, surveyed swing-state Biden voters and found that the media’s refusal to cover certain stories may have cost President Donald Trump the election.

“The State of Texas’s motion for leave to file a bill of complaint is denied for lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution,” the nation’s highest court wrote in an unsigned ruling released Friday evening.
What Texas says is all of those changes in the rules and all of the ballots that were cast according to those changes in the rules were all invalid votes, and that therefore the Electoral College votes of those four states should not be allowed to be counted.
The suit argues that each of the four states violated the Electors Clause of the U.S. Constitution, which Texas argues vests “state legislatures with plenary authority regarding the appointment of presidential electors.” The lawsuit asks the Supreme Court for a declaratory judgment that states violated election law and thus their electoral votes should not be counted.
Texas has filed an unprecedented motion with the U.S. Supreme Court, asking for leave to file a complaint against the states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin over the 2020 presidential election. The motion alleges that changes made in election rules in those states violated the Constitution.
Donald Trump and Joe Biden will have to get in line for bragging rights. This fall’s presidential election, the results of which the Trump campaign continues to challenge in key battleground states, is hardly the first national election that went into overtime.
Lawsuits remain ongoing in several states alleging election irregularities and fraud, and improperly followed state and federal procedures, which could impact how and when Electoral College votes are cast on Dec. 14.
The group shouted with bullhorns and held signs during the evening protest, where individuals contested the results of the race between President-elect Joe Biden and President Donald Trump, according to video.
