Louie Gohmert Says 140 Republicans Will Object to Biden Electors; 140 Republicans expected to back Trump’s Electoral College challenge, and related stories

Louie Gohmert says 140 Republicans will object to Biden electors:
Rep. Louie Gohmert said approximately 140 House Republicans plan to object during the counting of the Electoral College votes in his latest court filing in his lawsuit against Vice President Mike Pence.
Gohmert, who filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas earlier this week, is looking to get Pence to overturn the election results. He revealed that approximately 140 Republicans will be objecting during the Jan. 6 Congressional joint session in his latest court filing on Friday, confirming earlier reporting from CNN.
Gohmert's lawsuit attempts to provide Pence with “exclusive authority” to determine which Electoral College votes are certifiable, arguing that the vice president has the "sole discretion" to determine the legitimacy of votes via the 12th Amendment. However, Pence's lawyers with the Justice Department asked the judge on Thursday to throw out the lawsuit.
Deputy Assistant Attorney General John Coghlan's response argues that if Gohmert was to sue someone, it should be Congress, not the vice president. --->READ MORE HERE

140 Republicans expected to back Trump’s Electoral College challenge:
At least 140 Republicans in Congress are expected to support President Trump’s bid to overturn the results of the Electoral College next week.
The Jan. 6 vote is likely to fail and divide Republicans as President-elect Joe Biden prepares to take office Jan. 20.
Biden won the Electoral College 306-232, but Trump argues that fraud tipped the results in swing states. Courts have rejected those claims.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) said Wednesday he would join with a group of House Republicans objecting to the results, ensuring there is a vote on whether to accept the Electoral College outcome.
At least 140 House Republicans will back the effort, two lawmakers told CNN. There will be 211 House Republicans and at least 50 Senate Republicans in office when the vote occurs. There are two Georgia Senate runoffs on Jan. 5. --->READ MORE HERE
