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.

Search Warrants Served at AZ Nonprofit in Connection to 2020 ‘Ballot Trafficking Election Scandal’
Search warrants were served to an employee at a Yuma, Arizona nonprofit organization in connection to illegal ballot trafficking.
The ballot trafficking scheme was investigated in True The Vote and Dinesh D’Souza’s recent documentary “2000 Mules.” The documentary makes the claim that the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen by illegal ballot trafficking done through nonprofit organizations.
The ballot trafficking scheme was discovered by residents in Yuma County, and the documentary features the undercover investigative work of David Lara and Arizona State Senate candidate Gary Snyder as well as the investigations of Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips.
“18 months ago, we knew that when the full story was told about Yuma County, Arizona, it would reveal systematic, systemic, ballot trafficking, with connections that spread nationwide. It’s now happening, thankfully with law enforcement fully engaged. Much more remains to be revealed in the days ahead,” said Catherine Engelbrecht to the Gateway Pundit.
Sources tell The Gateway Pundit a group from Phoenix with the Attorney General’s office executed the search warrants. Additionally, The Gateway Pundit reports:
The nonprofit facilities were not raided. However, Tony Reyes, the Executive Director of Comité de Bien Estar, confirmed to The Gateway Pundit that Comité de Bien Estar’s Membership Coordinator, Gloria Torres received search warrants at the nonprofit office, and law enforcement is looking for evidence of voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.
“That 2000 Mule Documentary is starting to permeate all throughout this process,” said Reyes.He then confirmed that officers showed up to the office, “confiscated her phone, and basically went to her house.”
Tony Reyes is also the current Chairman of the Yuma County Board of Supervisors and they run the elections in Yuma County.
Gloria Torres is a current San Luis City Council Member and Gadsden Elementary School District Board member who faced a recall effort last year stemming from her political ties to Gadsden Elementary School Board member Guillermina Fuentes.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Fuentes, who serves on the San Luis School District Board, was indicted with four class four felonies of Forgery and Conspiracy and ballot abuse in the 2020 Elections.
