United States Electoral College
The newly elected Alabama senator suggested delaying Joe Biden’s inauguration and got taken to task on Twitter.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed the GOP senator, whose book deal was yanked over his role in the Capitol riot.
The proceedings are expected to conclude Wednesday evening with Joe Biden's 2020 election victory certified by Congress.
On the urging of Donald Trump, Republicans in Congress objected to certification of state election results. They will fail, but hurt democracy in the process.
The president's supporters stormed the Capitol in a violent, last-ditch effort to subvert democracy.
The protests coincide with Wednesday’s congressional vote expected to certify the Electoral College results, which Trump continues to dispute.
The Fox News host pressed Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri to explain the purpose of his stunt.
"Congress has only a narrow role in the presidential election process. Its job is to count the electors."
Current and former GOP officials warned that attempts to challenge Joe Biden's win "only serve to undermine Americans’ confidence" in the election results.
“Our elections have occurred. Recounts and audits have been conducted. Appropriate challenges have been addressed by the courts."
