Sen. Ted Cruz to Democrats calling for his arrest over election audit: 'Calm down':
Sen. Ted Cruz had a message for Democrats who want him tried for treason for seeking an emergency election audit: “Calm down.”
The Texas Republican came under fire after announcing Saturday that he and 10 GOP senators will vote to dispute the 2020 Electoral College certification on Jan. 6 unless Congress appoints an Electoral Commission to conduct a 10-day audit of fraud allegations in disputed states.
“Well, listen, I think everyone needs to calm down. I think we need to tone down the rhetoric,” Mr. Cruz said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo.” “This is already a volatile situation. It’s like a tinderbox and throwing lit matches into it.”
He said that “yesterday, when I released my statement with 10 other senators, I had multiple, multiple Democrats urging that I should be arrested and tried for the crimes of sedition and treason.” --->READ MORE HERE
Pence Backs 'Dirty Dozen' Bid To Block Biden Electors and Prove POTUS Won the Election:
In a statement issued hours after a group of senators announced they would challenge the official certification of the results of the 2020 election, Vice President Mike Pence said he supported the move.
The statement, released Saturday evening by Pence Chief of Staff Marc Short, said that “Vice President Pence shares the concerns of millions of Americans about voter fraud and irregularities in the last election.”
“The Vice President welcomes the efforts of members of the House and Senate to use the authority they have under the law to raise objections and bring forward evidence before the Congress and the American people on January 6th,” it added, according to The Hill.
Pence will preside over the joint session of Congress on Wednesday, which should make things awkward for both Democrats and the GOP party establishment.
The statement from 11 of the 12 GOP senators and senators-elect planning to challenge the results said that the 2020 election “featured unprecedented allegations of voter fraud, violations and lax enforcement of election law, and other voting irregularities.” --->READ MORE HERE
