Dem Rep. Rips Josh Hawley for Planned Objection to Electoral College Votes

The mood on Capitol Hill is taking a turn for the worse.

January 6th, 2021 may very well come to be known at Donald Trump’s last stand.

The Commander in Chief and his team have been working feverishly in an attempt to convince the nation, and more importantly its judges, that the 2020 election was stolen via “widespread voter fraud”.  These efforts have been largely unsuccessful, however, with the President’s legal team failing to gain traction on more than four dozen separate instances of litigation.

On January 6th, Congress will move to approve the results of the electoral college, which show Joe Biden winning the presidency with 306 votes – well over the 270 needed.

But Republican Senator Josh Hawley has now stated that he will object to those results, setting off a legislative process that could provide Trump with the outcome he desires.

Not everyone was happy with Hawley’s decision.

Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that his colleague Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) is attempting to overthrow democracy by announcing he will object to the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral college win in the Senate on January 6.

Mitchell said, “Your Republican colleague Josh Hawley of Missouri announcing today he’s going to object to the Electoral College vote certification on January 6. It’s unlikely to change the result, it’s not going to happen, but it’s going to cause delay, lengthy debate, both Houses in Joint Session. It’s a complicated process that sets off.”

Murphy said, “Let’s be clear, Josh Hawley and anyone who supports his effort are engaged in the attempted overthrow of democracy. There is no evidence that there was any fraud. Senator Hawley apparently believes that if a Democrat wins the presidential race, it must be illegitimate by definition, even absent any actual evidence of misbehavior.”

The Connecticut lawmaker went on to suggest that Hawley’s actions would be a threat to Democracy in the future as well, signaling his concerns for the 2020 midterms and the 2024 election as well.
