Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) said he will object to the Electoral College’s scheduled certification of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, thus increasing the re-election option of President Donald Trump.
Although more than a dozen representatives said they would reject the proposed certification by Jan. 6, the support of at least one senator was needed, hence the vital importance of Hawley’s decision, which was echoed by millions of voters in a Dec. 30 tweet.
“Millions of voters concerned about the integrity of the election deserve to be heard. I will oppose Jan. 6 on their behalf,” Hawley wrote.

In the brief statement he added to his message, Hawley explained that in 2004 and 2016, “Congressional Democrats objected during the certification of electoral votes in order to raise concerns about the integrity of the elections.
Now he and the whistleblowers of the fraudulent 2020 presidential election are choosing to exercise the same right.
He argued, “I cannot vote to certify the Jan. 6 polling place results without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, did not follow their own state election laws.”
He also denounced the interference of mega-corporations like Facebook and Twitter that acted for Biden, and emphasized, “Congress must investigate the allegations of voter fraud and take action to ensure the integrity of our elections.”
Furthermore, he especially questioned the results in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Nevada.
The objections would generate a series of debates. Several senators have indicated their willingness to join the effort as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) tried to oppose the growing anti-Biden movement.
“I think it’s totally inappropriate for Mitch McConnell to try to walk away from this,” said Rep. Jody Hice (R-Ga.) on Dec. 21.
He added, “If we lose the integrity of the ballot box, we will eventually lose our country, so it has to be in the battle with us. You need to encourage senators to join in.”
While time is relentlessly running out, President Trump’s chances for re-election are increasing, and Jan. 6 is expected to be one of the most intense election days ever seen in the United States.
Although Democrats, supported by Big Tech and perhaps by foreign powers, have put up a myriad of obstacles in the face of the suspected evasion of the judiciary, hundreds of thousands of Americans are already preparing to head to Washington to meet there on that memorable date.
