White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said that President Trump joined in a tight circle with “several” members of Congress to talk tactics on how to “fight back” against the fraudulent result of Joe Biden’s presidential bid.
“Several members of Congress just finished a meeting in the Oval Office with President @realDonaldTrump, preparing to fight back against mounting evidence of voter fraud. Stay tuned,” Meadows said on Twitter Monday evening, Dec. 21. The tweet stands out in stark contrast to the usual material from federal and state officials who claim no evidence of voter fraud.

Trump team lawyer, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, discussed on Newsmax that the team had a plan of action in another attempt to challenge the election results. So far, their claims have been refuted by the courts, but the president is not prepared to give in and wants justice for the American people.
The new session of Congress will meet to count and certify the Electoral College votes on Jan. 6, and House Republicans are looking to have Biden’s victory overturned. It is a long shot, as Democrats have a narrow majority in the House, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell from the Republican-controlled Senate does not encourage GOP senators to support the president’s attempts to flip the election result.
Alabama’s incoming GOP Sen. Tommy Tuberville is the Republican senator-elect from Alabama, and he’s proposing to object to the election results in the Senate on Jan. 6, giving Republicans at least one required representative in each chamber to force deliberation on the matter, as reported by The Washington Examiner.
Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene was at the White House meeting and shared a short video on Twitter after the White House meeting, which she called a “planning session.” The tweet alluded to a “rapidly growing” group of Republicans in the House and Senate, adding their support.
.@realdonaldtrump deserves his day in court, AND we are definitely going to give him his day in Congress.
We have a rapidly growing group of House Members and Senators.
Jan 6 challenge is on. 🇺🇸
