He added: “The president and his allies are playing with fire. First the courts, then the state legislatures, now the Congress – they are asking for the results of the presidential election to be overturned. If so, you have the best evidence, but neither the institutional firebrand members of Congress nor the president are opposed to the electoral college vote. “
“When we speak privately, I have never heard of a Congress Republican accusing the election results of fraud – not one,” Chas wrote. “Instead, I hear them talking about their concerns about how they will view President Trump’s most serious supporters.”
Howley was the first senator to announce plans to oppose the results, as both a councilor and a senator must object when Congress counts election college votes on Jan. 6.
The objection will not change the outcome of the election, delaying the inevitable confirmation of Biden’s victory against Trump in November. Democrats will reject any objection in the House, and many Republican senators argued against it, providing a platform for Trump’s unsubstantiated conspiracy theories that the election was stolen from him.
Chas attacked Trump’s conspiracies on his Facebook post, drawing on cases that failed the Trump campaign in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Wisconsin and Georgia, and wrote that the cases tried by the president were “fundraising tactics.”
“This is not radical rule, this is swamp politics – it shows very little respect for the honest people in my state who write these checks,” Chas wrote.
Sauce ended his long presentation with a discussion of the responsibility he feels in protecting American companies at this time.
“Let it be clear what’s going on here: we have ambitious politicians who think there’s a quick way to tap the president’s populist base without doing any real, long – term damage. But they are wrong – this issue is bigger than anyone’s personal ambitions,” Chas wrote.
The lawsuit filed by Trump’s staunch ally, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton – tried to sue Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Wisconsin, all of which went to Biden and invalidated their election results.
Trump now expects Congress to certify next week as the next opportunity to reverse this decision, but the process – even if drawn up by members of Congress who oppose state decisions – will inevitably end once Biden enters the White House on January 20.
