An Electoral debate is expected to occur on Jan. 6 after Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) declared Wednesday, Dec. 30, to join the GOP group to challenge the Electoral College vote. The Trump campaign said that they would present “specific evidence” of voter fraud during the debate next week.
Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller said that specific examples of fraud would be different than those in the legal battles that the president’s legal team has fought in the courts.
“Any of the [court] dismissals have been on process,” Miller told Newsmax TV.
Miller revealed that lawyer Rudy Giuliani had filed a new Supreme Court case in Wisconsin that said the campaign had identified over 50,000 ballots in the state cast unconstitutionally. The fight in Wisconsin has centered on ballots cast by people who should not have been allowed to vote.
“Article II of the Constitution makes it very clear, the state legislatures, and state legislatures alone, set up the voting systems for each state, the codes and the way they are conducted,” Miller said.
“What we have here is over 20,000 ballots that were cast without actually having an application on file, the mail ballots. Wisconsin’s very clear, very specific you got to have an application on file,” he added.
Miller also cited “suitcases of ballots” found in Georgia, the campaign’s inability to “inspect the machines” in Arizona, and Michigan where “they’re running through ballots multiple times.”
“These are the specific types of evidence we want to present to the American people on the national stage and not allow local politicians to sweep it under the rug,” the advisor noted.
The objection from Hawley, along with at least one House lawmaker, would ensure a debate in the two chambers of Congress for a maximum of two hours. During that time, the Trump campaign will have a chance to present their hard evidence as to why the electoral votes from certain states like Wisconsin and Pennsylvania should not be certified.
Newsmax citing Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), said that “upwards of” 100 GOP lawmakers will vote not to accept Democrat Joe Biden’s victory when Congress convenes on Jan. 6 to count the Electoral College votes.
