Biden speech at 8pm Monday on the Electoral College vote certification
President-elect Biden will give a speech at 8pm EST on Monday, Dec. 14th from Wilmington, DE to talk about “the electoral college vote certification and the strength and resilience of our democracy,”
Until then, Trump whines about something, something… after standing wasn’t found for the strange Texas lawsuit trying to throw out ballots and votes, because SCOTUS is “chicken”.
President Trump signaled that he will continue to challenge the results of the 2020 election even after the electoral college meets Monday in most state capitols to cast votes solidifying Joe Biden’s victory.In a Fox News interview that aired Sunday morning, Trump repeated his false claims of election fraud and said his legal team will continue to pursue challenges, despite the Supreme Court’s recent dismissal of a long-shot bid to overturn the results in four states Biden won.“No, it’s not over,” Trump told host Brian Kilmeade in the interview, which was taped Saturday at the Army-Navy game at the U.S. Military Academy. “We keep going, and we’re going to continue to go forward. We have numerous local cases. We’re, you know, in some of the states that got rigged and robbed from us. We won every one of them. We won Pennsylvania. We won Michigan. We won Georgia by a lot.”
A CBS News poll released Sunday shows that 62 percent of registered voters believe that the election is over and that it is time to move on. But, notably, 75 percent of Republicans said that they believe the election is not over and that it should still be contested. Just 18 percent of those who voted for Trump in 2020 said they consider Biden the legitimate winner.

a small group in Congress is plotting a final-stage challenge on the floor of the House in early January to try to reverse Biden’s victory.
Pence will be reluctant to declare Biden as the winner, doing otherwise could endanger his political future as he plans his career after the White House.

The Electoral Count Act of 1887 requires challenges to be submitted with a senator’s signature, the Times noted, but so far no GOP senators have explicitly said they would go along with such a plan in the House. Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wyo.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) have reportedly indicated that they are open to it.
However, even if this action is successful, it would still require the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives and the GOP-controlled Senate to both agree to disqualify the results, an outcome that is nearly impossible, the newspaper noted.
The Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) last week that sought to overturn the results of the election in four battleground states. The suit was supported by 17 other attorneys general in GOP-controlled states and 126 House Republicans.
