REPORT: Trump allies led by Rep. Brooks plan to challenge electoral vote tally

According to a new report from the NY Times, Trump allies, led by Rep. Mo Brooks plan to challenge the Electoral College vote tally as it is counted by Congress and certified by Vice President Pence January 6th.

In an interview with the NY Times, Rep. Brooks (R-Alabama) said “we have a superior role under the Constitution than the Supreme Court does, than any federal court judge does, than any state court judge does.”

He added “what we say, goes. That’s the final verdict.”

Gregory B. Craig, who served as White House counsel for Obama, told the Times the move could put Pence is a difficult position.

“The role the V.P. plays in the transition is something that people have never focused on and never think about, but with Donald Trump, you now have to consider all the possibilities,” Craig said.

Brooks tweeted Saturday:

Constitution Article 1, Section 5 states #Senate is “Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members”.

#Georgia voter fraud & election theft is massive.

If only lawful American citizen votes counted, #DavidPerdue WON on November 3.

Senate should so rule.
