A new effort by a group of Republican senators, led by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, marks a major win for President Donald J. Trump’s efforts to challenge the results of the 2020 election due to widespread fraud.
Cruz, with Sens. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.; James Lankford, R-Okla.; Steve Daines, R-Mont.; John Kennedy, R-La.; Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and Mike Braun, R-Ind. say that the election “featured unprecedented allegations of voter fraud and illegal conduct.”
Senators-Elect Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo.; Roger Marshall, R-Kansas; Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn., and Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala. joined the senators in a joint statement following their meeting today.
“Voter fraud has posed a persistent challenge in our elections, although its breadth and scope are disputed,” the statement said. “By any measure, the allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election exceed any in our lifetimes.”
This represents a significant push against the certification of states with serious fraud and calls for Congress to appoint an Electoral Commission to conduct a 10-day emergency audit of the election returns in states where the results are disputed.
Many patriotic Americans are calling on Cruz to be a replacement for current Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (if the GOP retains the majority) because of the Kentucky senator’s reluctance to support President Trump efforts to fight election fraud.
The senators cite substantial precedent of Democrats objecting to election results in 1969, 2001, 2005 and 2019: “And, in both 1969 and 2005, a Democratic Senator joined with a Democratic House Member in forcing votes in both houses on whether to accept the presidential electors being challenged,” they stated.
They also cited the 1877 election between Samuel Hayes and Rutherford Hayes, where there were allegations of fraud in multiple states.
“In 1877, Congress did not ignore those allegations, nor did the media simply dismiss those raising them as radicals trying to undermine democracy,” the lawmakers say. “Instead, Congress appointed an Electoral Commission — consisting of five Senators, five House Members, and five Supreme Court Justices — to consider and resolve the disputed returns.”
“We should follow that precedent. To wit, Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states. Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed,” the statement said.
Without that, they will vote against the certification.
“Accordingly, we intend to vote on January 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified’ (the statutory requisite), unless and until that emergency 10-day audit is completed,” they said in the statement.
“These are matters worthy of the Congress, and entrusted to us to defend. We do not take this action lightly. We are acting not to thwart the democratic process, but rather to protect it,” they indicated. “And every one of us should act together to ensure that the election was lawfully conducted under the Constitution and to do everything we can to restore faith in our Democracy.”
On Election Night, Trump was beating Joe Biden, until extraordinary proven evidence revealed extensive fraud was used by deep state operatives that flipped some red states including Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and Arizona to reach the 270 Electoral College votes needed to secure the presidency.
