Trump-supporting Americans are reassured as Vice President Mike Pence finally addresses the upcoming congressional joint session.
The Vice President spoke to a crowd in Rock Springs Church in Milner, Georgia while campaigning for Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) and David Perdue who are facing a Senate runoff on Jan. 5.
Pence said that President Donald Trump and Republicans will "have our day in Congress."
"I know we all got our doubts about the last election. … I promise you, come this Wednesday, we’ll have our day in Congress. We’ll hear the objections. We’ll hear the evidence, but tomorrow is Georgia’s day," he added.
Marc Short, Pence's chief of staff, said in a statement on Saturday that the vice president “welcomes” an effort by some lawmakers to "raise objections" on Jan. 6, when Congress meets to certify the Electoral College vote.
“Vice President Pence shares the concerns of millions of Americans about voter fraud and irregularities in the last election,” said Short.
“The Vice President welcomes the efforts of members of the House and Senate to use the authority they have under the law to raise objections and bring forward evidence before the Congress and the American people on January 6th,” the statement continued.
Until today, those had been Pence's only remarks on the matter.
According to The Epoch Times, a dozen Republican senators and at least 50 House Republicans have pledged to object to key states’ electoral votes amid allegations of voter fraud, irregularities, and what they say are unconstitutional laws that changed restrictions around mail-in ballots. The challenge requires at least one senator and one representative, which would then trigger a two-hour debate on a state’s electoral votes before a majority vote is held on whether to accept or reject a state’s electors.
Pence, as Vice President, will preside as president over the Senat during the Jan. 6 session. Dozens of Republican lawmakers are planning to object (here, here, here), their goal being to overturn the 2020 US election results and make a path for Trump to win the presidency.
