Kobach: Congress may be in for a fight over electoral vote cerification

President Donald Trump and his team of experienced lawyers have, so far, come up short in their efforts to convince state or federal courts that the election results should be invalidated based on allegations of widespread voter and ballot fraud.

However, according to Breitbart, former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach indicated that there’s one last move that Trump’s Republican allies can make, which will happen on January 6 when U.S. Congress formally accepts the Electoral College’s votes for Joe Biden. Kobach said America could see a “big fight” in Congress that day because some congresspeople are planning to object to the results. 

“It is possible for members of Congress to raise objections, and that appears to be what some states are planning,” Kobach told Breitbart News Daily host Alex Marlow.

Kobach went on to talk about some Republican legislatures “submitting the names of a Republican set of electors,” pointing out that challenges would be made especially for the states that changed their 2020 election rules without using the proper legislative actions.

The former secretary of state added that if Republicans manage to pull off an event in which they’re able to dispute the official outcomes of various states, that the ordeal will “start to look like the Hayes-Tilden election of 1876, which is the last time that a disputed election went to Congress.”

He added that it’s time for people to relax, grab a bag of popcorn and enjoy the show while expressing confidence that the fight to overturn the election could very well still be in play.

Kobach’s prediction could come to fruition, as The Hill reported that Republican Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) is attempting to lead an effort within Congress to garner support for objecting to Congress’ counting of the Electoral Vote certificates come January 6.

“This is not unusual, 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 submissions from states with such flawed election systems that they are not worthy of our trust,” Brooks said.

Only time will tell how it all pans out, but needless to say — this thing appears to be far from over.
