Senator Josh Hawley specifically joined the “Story” on Wednesday, speaking after the Democrats expressed their opposition to plans to oppose presidential elections in several states when Congress passed the election next week.
According to current law, at least one U.S. Senator and one U.S. House of Representatives are required to debate the electoral votes of the state. Hawley, Maryland, became the first U.S. senator to declare a senator on Wednesday. He joined Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks.
The host Will Cain pointed out that the Missouri State Senator almost immediately drew a backlash from his Democratic colleagues. Connecticut Senator Christopher Murphy claimed that he was trying to “turn America into A state similar to Russia or China”
In an interview with CNN earlier in the day, Van Hollen said that Hollen was “undermining the public’s greater trust in our democratic process and supporting false Trump statements.”
Holly said: “First of all, when they were opposed during the election college certification in 2004 and 2016, I did not hear Democrats make such outrageous claims. Democrats have been doing this for many years, causing people to criticize Concerns about the integrity of the election,” on Fox News. “Now, when Republicans and 74 million Americans are concerned about the integrity of the election, should we sit down and shut up? Someone must stand up here.”
The lawmaker pointed out that Van Hollen was not opposed to Sen at the time. When President George W. Bush was re-elected in 2005 and thus defeated the then senator’s qualifications, Balabara Boxer of California formally opposed Ohio voters. John F. Kerry, D-Mass.
The late Cleveland Democrat and the late Rep. Stephanie Tubbs-Jones formally joined the opposition.
Holly said: “I think Van Hollen personally commended the Senate and Democrats in the Senate in 2005-January 2005, because they have the right to do so, and therefore oppose it. “Every senator and member of the House of Representatives Have the right to object. This is their judgment. “
Holly added that although Missouri-whose voters will vote for President Trump-is not one of the few states that are considering opposing, he still knows from his voters that they feel affected by Pennsylvania and Georgia. The so-called inconsistency in other states deprived the right to vote.
He said: “This is an opportunity for me as a U.S. Senator.”[H]This is my opportunity to stand up and speak, and this is what I want to do. “
Holly singled out Keystone State and accused officials there of “non-compliance.”[ing] Make your own laws during the election process. “
In 2019, the Republican majority legislature passed Bill 77, which was signed by Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf. The new law allows absentee voting in absentia-but some state Republicans claim that a majority of the state Supreme Court legislates on the bench when they issued a 2020 order giving voters until the Friday after election day to submit these vote. Pass mail and substantially negative signature verification requirements.
When talking about big technology companies like Facebook and Twitter, Holly said: “We have made an unprecedented intervention in the most powerful company and fully support Joe Biden. This is a censorship system we have never seen before.”
Hawley said: “We did not conduct a congressional investigation of the fraud.” “We need it. We do not have Congress to take action. We need to do this to protect our election. I will present all these points and try to make all of them. Have a debate.”
In response to Holly’s announcement, Biden’s spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki called the plan “antics” and claimed that it would have no effect on whether Biden opened on January 20.
