According to a recent poll, President Trump reported that 92 percent of Republican voters believe the election was rigged. “Poll: 92% of Republican Voters think the election was rigged!” President Trump wrote on his Twitter account on Dec. 16.

This figure is in line with the strong support that Trump’s followers expressed in Washington’s massive demonstrations in recent weeks.

Likewise, the Republican base seems to be challenging some “red party” career politicians who have said there’s nothing to be done after the Electoral College vote on Dec. 14.

Such is the case with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who even congratulated Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

Early Wednesday, President Trump tweeted an article reporting on the Republicans’ reaction to the Kentucky senator.

“Mitch, 75,000,000 VOTES, a record for a sitting President (by a lot). Too soon to give up. Republican Party must finally learn to fight. People are angry!” the president said.

On the other hand, Republican representatives and senators have stated that nothing has been decided yet.

Congress could proclaim the re-election of the president in the special session of Jan. 6, 2021, in which the votes of the Electoral College must be certified.

Republican Representative Mo Brooks said that President Trump won the Electoral College if only legitimate votes are counted.

Brooks stated that, in effect, the Jan. 6 session would not be able to validate the electoral votes of those states in dispute, where a vast amount of evidence has been presented for fraud and irregularities that took place during the Nov. 3 election.

“The law is very clear, the House of Representatives in combination with the United States Senate has the lawful authority to accept or reject Electoral College vote submissions from states that have such flawed election systems that they’re not worthy of our trust,” the Alabama congressman explained.

“And in this instance, with what has happened nationally, I’m quite confident that if we only counted lawful votes cast by eligible American citizens, Donald Trump won the Electoral College, and we should not be counting illegal votes and putting in an illegitimate President of the United States,” he continued during a dialogue with Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs.

In that sense, he developed the strategy whereby Republican congress members, loyal to President Trump, could ensure that only legitimate votes are counted.

“On Jan. 6, I’m going to object to the submissions of Electoral College votes from various states that, in my judgment, have such flawed election systems that their vote counts are unworthy of our ratification in the United States Congress,” he said, pointing out that the only thing he needs is for a senator to join his claim.

“If we have a House member and a senator, then by golly, that forces a House vote and a floor vote on whether to accept this systematically flawed election system or to reject it,” he added.

As it turned out days ago, Brooks’ proposal has already received the support of Senators Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Rand Paul of Kentucky.

With the endorsement of one representative and one senator in the Jan. 6 session of Congress, each chamber will have to debate for two hours and then cast a vote on whether to disqualify a given state’s votes.

Both chambers would have to vote in favor of the initiative.

Brooks expressed hope that Congress would be able to “have an honest, fair, and accurate election.”
