11 Republican Senators – Led By Ted Cruz – Will Object To Electoral College Certification:
leven Republican senators, led by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, announced Saturday that they would object to the certification of states’ Electoral College votes when Congress meets on Jan. 6.
“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,” the statement, co-signed by Cruz and 10 other GOP senators, said. “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 Jan. 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not ‘regularly given’ and ‘lawfully certified,’ unless and until that 10-day emergency audit is completed,” the statement adds.
The other six Republican senators who cosigned the statement are Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford, Montana Sen. Steve Daines, Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy, Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn and Indiana Sen. Mike Braun. They were joined by four Republican senators-elect: Wyoming’s Cynthia Lummis, Kansas’s Roger Marshall, Tennessee’s Bill Haggerty and Alabama’s Tommy Tuberville. --->READ MORE HERE

Cruz Letter Calls for Rejection of Electoral College Results:
Texas senator Ted Cruz is circulating a letter to GOP Senate allies calling for the rejection of the Electoral College results until an emergency ten-day audit can be conducted to examine “unprecedented allegations of voter fraud.”
The letter, according to a copy obtained by National Review, says: “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.”
As National Review’s Andrew McCarthy has written, the Trump legal team has repeatedly abandoned allegations of widespread voter fraud when given the opportunity to present them in court.
The Cruz letter cites the precedent of the disputed 1876 presidential election in which Congress appointed a 15-member commission composed of five members of the House, five members of the Senate, and five Supreme Court justices to resolve disputed elections in three states. --->READ MORE HERE
