Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley joined other GOP lawmakers on Wednesday, when he announced that he will object to to the certification of electoral votes to name Joe Biden President of the United States. It will be more than just a symbolic statement but the televised event, along with the objections from lawmakers, will finally lay out all the concerns of alleged voter fraud to the American public, said Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus Andy Biggs.
Biggs told me that he will also launch his objection to the electoral votes in Arizona and noted that the Democrats “will try to object and obstruct the process” throughout the proceeding.
The Jan. 6, proceeding, however, “will be the first time that the entire country won’t be censored by the left wing media – we will be out there debating election fraud. That’s the beauty of what will happen and the American people will hear all of it, some of them for the first time,” said Biggs.
Hawley is joining House Rep. Jody Hice, who also stated that he will not certify Georgia’s electors on Jan. 6. Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, along with members of the House Freedom Caucus, are also saying that they will object to certifying the electoral votes for Biden.
What does this mean? It means that on Jan. 6, at 1 p.m. when House and Senate lawmakers meet in the House chamber to vote the lawmakers will enter their objections regarding each state based on their concern that there was election fraud. Vice President Mike Pence will preside over the vote as president of the Senate chamber. As tradition, the Vice President will open the sealed certificates that will be submitted by each state but lawmakers will have the opportunity to voice their objections.
Moreover, issues regarding the 1877 electoral law will also come into play on Jan. 6, Biggs said. It’s known as the 1887 Electoral Count Act and it may play a role in one of the most controversial presidential elections in modern political history. Biggs said the law itself needs to be challenged ‘and I’m not the only one but many scholars do as well.”
The law actually requires electors to be chosen for the Electoral College, the constitutionally established body that elects the president, no more than 41 days after Election Day.
“I think the 1877 law is unconstitutional in my opinion,” said Biggs. “The fact that we are engaging in some kind of byzantine legal fiction may have us raising this issues to the Supreme Court after January 6.”
Biggs said Hawley’s announcement to object, could empower other Senators to come forward and join the objections. For example, Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R- Alabama, hinted in early December that senators should also object on Jan. 6 when Congress ratifies the election results. Others, like Sen. Rand Paul, R-KY, or Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, may also rethink their decision and announce their objections.
Hawley’s objections may lead others to join as suggested by Biggs and he made it clear that his objections also include the extraordinary bias exhibited by the media that worked against accurately informing the American people.
“Following both the 2004 and 2016 election, Democrats in Congress objected during the certification of electoral votes in order to raise concerns about election integrity,” Sen. Hawley said in a statement. “They were praised by Democratic leadership and the media when they did. And they were entitled to do so. But now those of us concerned about the integrity of this election are entitled to do the same.”
“I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on January 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws,” he added. “And I cannot vote to certify without pointing out the unprecedented effort of mega corporations, including Facebook and Twitter, to interfere in this election, in support of Joe Biden. At the very least, Congress should investigate allegations of voter fraud and adopt measure to secure the integrity of our elections. But Congress has so far failed to act.”
He ended his statement: “For these reasons, I will follow the same practice Democrat members of Congress have in years past and object during the certification process on January 6 to raise these critical issues.”
Hice announced on Dec. 21, that he had a meeting with President Donald Trump, Pence and the White House legal team. He said that he, along with members of the Freedom Caucus, will lead an ‘objection to Georgia’s electors on Jan. 6.”
“The courts refuse to hear the President’s legal case,” he said. “We’re going to make sure the People can!”

FBI punishing employees who attended Jan 6 rally by revoking security clearances
The official Twitter account of the GOP House Judiciary Committee released an alarming warning: “Whistleblowers alert that the FBI appears to be attempting to terminate the employment of employees who were engaged in protected First Amendment activity on January 6, 2021.”

A letter from ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), to FBI Director Christopher Wray, addresses how several whistleblowers exposed the FBI of stripping employees of security clearances.
The letter cites claims of multiple whistleblowers who say the FBI has been purposely punishing those who attended then-president Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6, 2021, by revoking their clearances. Reportedly many of them did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.
“While FBI employees may not participate in partisan political campaigns, [they] do not give up their rights to engage in political speech activity,” wrote Jordan. “We have serious concerns that the FBI appears to be retaliating against employees for engaging in political speech disfavored by FBI leadership,” he added.
The primary whistleblower is described as a 20-year veteran of the FBI and U.S. military. Jordan believes the FBI’s actions could potentially result in the administrative extermination of the individuals’ employment because the FBI requires top-secret security clearances for majority of its employees.
Jordan has required that the FBI brief the committee on the security clearances matter by May 20.
