It is being reported that an additional five Republican lawmakers are signing onto the resolution to censure Trump:
The censure resolution has been introduced by six House Rs:

The text of the resolution accuses President Trump of trying to steal the election by pushing for voter fraud investigations. It censures and condemns “President Donald J. Trump for trying to unlawfully overturn the 2020 Presidential election and violating his oath of office on January 6, 2021.”
The resolution criticizes President Trump for saying “if you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country anymore.” It also repeats fake news lies about President Donald Trump’s call with Georgia secretary of state Brad Raffensperger, inferring that Trump was trying to coerce Raffensperger into committing election fraud.
Fitzpatrick’s measure “publicly states that President Donald J. Trump has acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self-governance and the rule of law” and “censures and condemns President Donald J. Trump for trying to unlawfully overturn the 2020 Presidential election and violating his oath of office on January 6, 2021.”
Big League Politics has reported on how Republican officials have enforced the vote steal since the election was stolen from Trump in November:
Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, ostensibly a Republican, is telling President Trump to give up his crusade for electoral integrity and let widespread electoral fraud slide in his state and across the nation.
Duncan appeared on the fake news leader to claim that fighting against electoral fraud may cost the GOP two seats in the U.S. Senate. Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are facing off with Democrats in a runoff election next year that are expected to be close.
“I cannot think of a single scenario where continuing to fan the flames on misinformation around election fraud helps us on our January 5th runoff,” Duncan told CNN anchor Erin Burnett on Thursday night…
If Loeffler and Perdue lose in next year’s runoff elections, it will likely be due to the incredible failure of the Georgia Republican Party to secure their own elections as they have doggedly resisted transparency following the vote.
Loeffler and Perdue ultimately did fail because of the GOP’s unwillingness to investigate voter fraud. Violence occurred in Washington D.C. last week because of the Republican Party’s inability to protect the Bill of Rights and Constitution, and they are now doubling down on their failure.
