A senator and a representative could object.

Senator Rand Paul may join Congressman Mo Brooks in objecting to the certification of electoral college votes in Congress. Both chambers of Congress are scheduled to vote on the pending electoral college votes on January 6th, 2021.

We’re still looking at all the legal stuff that’s happening with the legal cases and we’ll make our decision after we’ve seen all the legal challenges,” the senator told CNN on Dec. 10.

Barry Moore of Alabama and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia have both pledged to vote against the certification of the pending electoral college votes, which give Joe Biden 306 votes and the presidency. The two are slated to be sworn into office in coming days, and join Alabama’s Brooks in challenging the electoral college votes.

Ron Johnson of Wisconsin hasn’t ruled out joining a challenge to the certification of results as well. Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, is slated to hold a hearing in his committee about irregularities and election improprieties this week.

The objection to certifying electoral college votes is likely to be overruled through Senate procedure, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell congratulating Joe Biden for winning the election on Tuesday.

Some of the primary objections to the results of the 2020 presidential election cite violations of election law in critical swing states such as Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania’s governor ordered election workers to accept absentee ballots in contravention of commonwealth law. A lawsuit from the state of Texas and seventeen other state attorney generals against pending election results and illegal election practices was rejected by the Supreme Court last week.

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks

The Democrat complained about masks.

New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.

Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”

This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.

Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.

Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.

Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
