As the President’s legal team, (and other, not really affiliated legal teams), continue to seek out litigious paths to victory for President Trump, at least one member of Congress is honoring the old adage, “if you want it done right, you have to do it yourself”.
The official Trump legal team is getting rebuked by just about every judge that they go in front of, and they’re running out of time. The Constitution mandates that Joe Biden’s inauguration will take place on January 20th, creating a hard and steadfast deadline for Rudy Giulini and Co.
With these chances dwindling, Re. Mo Brooks of Alabama is signaling a backup plan.
Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., says he will challenge the tally of Electoral College votes when Congress officially certifies the results of the presidential election on Jan. 6.
The move, while unlikely to succeed, has generated praise from the president.

In an interview with Politico, Brooks said he’d challenge the election results, calling the process “badly flawed” without evidence and echoed false claims from President Donald Trump that mail-in voting is “unconstitutional.”
The congressman said he would pursue the effort if a member of the Senate also joined him in challenging the certification, though he noted none have so far come forward. Brooks said he has had “indirect” conversations with Republican senators about the matter.
Brooks was vehement in his belief.
“In my judgment, if only lawful votes by eligible American citizens were cast, Donald Trump won the Electoral College by a significant margin, and Congress’s certification should reflect that,” Brooks claimed. “This election was stolen by the socialists engaging in extraordinary voter fraud and election theft measures.”
If nothing else, Brooks could bring the issue to the mainstream, as a great many media outlets have opted to dismiss the ongoing legal challenges to the election.
