On January 2, 2020, Texas Senator Ted Cruz released a joint statement with Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, Montana Senator Steve Daines, Louisiana Senator John Kennedy, Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn, and Indiana Senator Mike Braun along with incoming Wyoming Senator Cynthia Lummis, Kansas Senator Roger Marshall, Tennessee Senator Bill Hagerty, and Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberbille regarding the Electoral College certification process on January 6, 2021. The statement read as follows:
America is a Republic whose leaders are chosen in democratic elections. Those elections, in turn, must comply with the Constitution and with federal and state law.
When the voters fairly decide an election, pursuant to the rule of law, the losing candidate should acknowledge and respect the legitimacy of that election. And, if the voters choose to elect a new office-holder, our Nation should have a peaceful transfer of power.
Voter fraud has posed a persistent challenge in our elections, although its breadth and scope are disputed. By any measure, the allegations of fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election exceed any in our lifetimes.
And those allegations are not believed just by one individual candidate. Instead, they are widespread.Reuters/Ipsos polling, tragically, shows that 39% of Americans believe ‘the election was rigged.’ That belief is held by Republicans (67%), Democrats (17%), and Independents (31%).
Some Members of Congress disagree with that assessment, as do many members of the media.
But, whether or not our elected officials or journalists believe it, that deep distrust of our democratic processes will not magically disappear. It should concern us all. And it poses an ongoing threat to the legitimacy of any subsequent administrations.
Ideally, the courts would have heard evidence and resolved these claims of serious election fraud. Twice, the Supreme Court had the opportunity to do so; twice, the Court declined.
On January 6, it is incumbent on Congress to vote on whether to certify the 2020 election results. That vote is the lone constitutional power remaining to consider and force resolution of the multiple allegations of serious voter fraud.
At that quadrennial joint session, there is long precedent of Democratic Members of Congress raising objections to presidential election results, as they did in 1969, 2001, 2005, and 2017. And, in both 1969 and 2005, a Democratic Senator joined with a Democratic House Member in forcing votes in both houses on whether to accept the presidential electors being challenged.
The most direct precedent on this question arose in 1877, following serious allegations of fraud and illegal conduct in the Hayes-Tilden presidential race. Specifically, the elections in three states-Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina-were alleged to have been conducted illegally.
In 1877, Congress did not ignore those allegations, nor did the media simply dismiss those raising them as radicals trying to undermine democracy. Instead, Congress appointed an Electoral Commission-consisting of five Senators, five House Members, and five Supreme Court Justices-to consider and resolve the disputed returns.
We should follow that precedent. To wit, Congress should immediately appoint an Electoral Commission, with full investigatory and fact-finding authority, to conduct an emergency 10-day audit of the election returns in the disputed states. Once completed, individual states would evaluate the Commission’s findings and could convene a special legislative session to certify a change in their vote, if needed.
Accordingly, we intend to vote on January 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified’ (the statutory requisite), unless and until that emergency 10-day audit is completed.
We are not naïve. We fully expect most if not all Democrats, and perhaps more than a few Republicans, to vote otherwise. But support of election integrity should not be a partisan issue. A fair and credible audit-conducted expeditiously and completed well before January 20-would dramatically improve Americans’ faith in our electoral process and would significantly enhance the legitimacy of whoever becomes our next President. We owe that to the People.
These are matters worthy of the Congress, and entrusted to us to defend. We do not take this action lightly. We are acting not to thwart the democratic process, but rather to protect it. And every one of us should act together to ensure that the election was lawfully conducted under the Constitution and to do everything we can to restore faith in our Democracy.
At least some Senators recognize that the 2020 elections were filled with tons of irregularities and potential cases of mass fraud. America is a constitutional republic, but it’s system only works if both parties play according to the rules of the game.
Allowing fraud to occur only enables the Left to pull even larger cases of fraud further down the line. The GOP needs to step up and join these Senators in bringing some form of accountability to the 2020 elections before Joe Biden is installed as president on January 20.
EXCLUSIVE: Leaked Email Shows How GOP Leaders Botched Election Ops for Trump in Key Battleground State
It wasn’t Trump who blew it; it was the RINOs.
In the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election farce, the majority of Republican officials have been desperate to quash legitimate investigations and perpetrate the ruse that no severe irregularities occurred in battleground states.
According to emails leaked to Big League Politics, the reason behind this Republican cover-up may be due to the extreme levels of incompetence and failure exerted by the GOP establishment.
Big League Politics obtained the correspondence from Jan. 22 in which one exasperated attorney described how the state of Michigan was woefully unprepared for election fraud that was plotted in the open many months in advance.
“Sure the Democrats lied and cheated to win but the truth is that they out smarted (sic) us. They set the table in the courts before the election so they could do what they do so well. We got played. Now we know what is coming next time,” the lawyer stated.
“Instead of us organizing a few weeks before 2022 we need to start now,” they added.
The attorney outlined how the Michigan Republican Party and their big money attorneys dropped the ball on everything from election day operations to the fight for accountability after the robbery had occurred.
“The effort in Detroit smacked of last minute preparation or no preparation at all. People arrived and were offered no direction. There was no set of guidelines on election law. I pressed to get a copy of the Michigan Secretary of State guidelines but we had no copier at the office. I had 60 copies made at my hotel and gave them out,” the attorney explained.
“From day to day we had little idea of what to do. Making calls to voters is a great idea but did we really need to fly lawyers in from all over the US to do that? That could have been done by anyone. It was a waste of talent and money,” they added.
The attorney is hoping that Republicans in Michigan and across the country improve their efforts in subsequent years, and they are willing to lead the effort so elections are not bumbled as they were in 2020.
“Next time we do this lets (sic) have written materials in advance. Lets (sic) have a greeter to orient people. Tell people ahead of time that they needed a google account. Have a tech person there to help those who were born before 1980. Have a printer and a coffee maker that works. Have local maps. Have a hotel closer to the office,” the attorney wrote.
“I have done this before for many years… I knew what to look for. People need to be trained in how to be a poll watcher. I am ready to begin work. Lets (sic) get our act together. Thank you to all of you for what you did. You are patriots and can be very proud,” they wrote to conclude their email.
Big League Politics has reported extensively about the voter fraud that took place in Michigan that was ultimately rubber stamped by Republican elected officials:
Earlier tonight, Big League Politics reported on two Republican members of the Wayne County board of canvassers who refused to certify dubious election results in Detroit…
However, the Republican members of the Wayne County board of canvassers – Bill Hartmann and Monica Palmer – quickly capitulated and reversed their decision. Even though they were both present when thousands of mysterious ballots showed up in the dead of night after the election, they stabbed the whistleblowers in the back anyway by rubberstamping the sham…
Palmer and Hartmann will go down as two of the most cowardly traitors in the history of the Republic. That will be the legacy that their posterity will have to live down long after they are gone.
The total failure of the Republican establishment to protect elections last year is the truth that GOP elected officials desperately want to obscure from the masses.
