A group of GOP senators, led by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), are planning to object to the electoral college certification on Jan. 6, as reported by Fox News. The senators will not object if there is an emergency 10-day audit of the election results by an electoral commission.
The Cruz-led group now includes Senator’s Ron Johnson (R-WI), James Lankford (R-OK), Steve Daines (R-MT), John Kennedy (R-LA), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Mike Braun (R-IN).
Seveal senators-elect plan to object, including Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), and Tommy Tuberville (R-AL).
“Voter fraud has posed a persistent challenge in our elections, although its breadth and scope are disputed,” the lawmakers said in a statement Saturday. “By any measure, the allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election exceed any in our lifetimes.”
The statement highlights the importance of election integrity and ensuring Americans feel secure in their voting.
“Whether or not our elected officials or journalists believe it, that deep distrust of our democratic processes will not magically disappear. It should concern us all. And it poses an ongoing threat to the legitimacy of any subsequent administrations,” the statement reads.
The senators demand an appointment of an “Electoral commission” to investigate the election.
“We should follow that precedent. To wit, Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states. Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed,” the statement said.

Carter on Hannity: House Judiciary Committee will subpoena DOJ over Biden classified docs
Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”
“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.
Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
