Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell held a conference call among several Republican senators, seeking to publicly pressure Josh Hawley for his stance in opposing the fraudulent presidential election held in November.
According to reports, Mitch McConnell, who is at the center of criticism from his fellow Republicans for not joining the fight against the scandalous electoral fraud, had tried to persuade Senator Josh Hawley during a video conference among Republicans for intending to oppose the counting of electoral votes on Jan. 6 in the Senate.
The House and Senate will meet in a joint session on Jan. 6 to certify the Electoral College votes to confirm who will be the next president of the United States. But at least 140 Republican congressmen are expected to challenge Biden’s constituents from states with obvious irregularities during the presidential election and not accept a count of their votes.
Any objection, if supported by at least one member of the House and one member of the Senate, would trigger a series of debates. Republican Representative Mo Brooks and Senator Josh Hawley, respectively, announced that they will lead the race.
In turn, several senators have indicated their willingness to join the effort, while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to persuade Republicans to limit their action.
Despite the efforts of Senate Majority Leader McConnell, two Republican members of the House of Representatives told the media that they expect at least 140 of their Republican colleagues in the House to vote against counting the electoral votes on Jan. 6, when Congress was expected to certify candidate Joe Biden’s victory. The Gateway Pundit reported.
According to a source familiar with the call McConnell organized with the Republicans, the Senate leader pressured Missouri Senator Josh Hawley to explain the reason behind his plans to oppose the Electoral College vote.
“Hawley did not respond to multiple questions from McConnell, even when asked to present his plan to oppose the Electoral College vote, and the senators soon acknowledged that he was not actually on the call. The call occurred early Thursday,” according to CNN.
Republicans found no explanation for McConnell’s actions, or the only explanation they found is that he is deliberately trying to turn the U.S. Senate over to the Democrats.
President Donald Trump has warned that he will not forget the Republican senators, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who have refused to support him in the battle against a fraudulent election.
In a Christmas Eve tweet, President Trump complained that several senators have done nothing to help him, even though the president has helped them get to the finish line since he entered the White House.
“I saved at least 8 Republican Senators, including Mitch, from losing in the last Rigged (for President) Election. Now they (almost all) sit back and watch me fight against a crooked and vicious foe, the Radical Left Democrats. I will NEVER FORGET!” President Trump wrote.
