‘Some Judgement Day lies ahead’ for those Republicans who don’t support Trump
Rep. Roy has been very clear about his objection, citing the Constitution’s stating that it is up to state legislatures to deliver a win for President Donald Trump.
“I am as outraged as anyone about the still-unanswered questions about the election,” stated Roy. “ But the Constitution is clear: States select electors. Congress does not. There is only one path to victory for @POTUS on Jan. 6: state legislatures certifying Trump electors in states at issue
“The law is clear about my authority and responsibility in today’s proceeding, and the Constitution and prior court rulings are unambiguous: only state legislatures can make election laws,” said Arrington.
“I swore an oath ‘to support and defend the Constitution’ and ‘faithfully discharge the duties of the office.’
“While I have grievances about the outcome of this election, my chief responsibility is protecting the integrity of all future elections. This is not about being loyal to a President or political party, it is about fidelity to Rule of Law, the Constitution, and my conscience.
“Therefore, I will object.”
Rep. Crenshaw has not made a formal statement on the matter, but according to several members of Congress, Crenshaw will object to the effort to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral votes.
Crenshaw’s office told Texas Politics that they would not be getting ahead of any vote, and did not have a comment to make on whether he would object or not.
Texas Politics ran into another Texas legislator, Rep. Pete Sessions (R), who said that he in fact would be supporting the president, but does not believe that the measure will pass in the House.
Many believe that those who oppose the president will most-likely be primarily challenged and will have to answer to voters on “some judgment day that lies ahead.”
“Well, there are a lot of people that have their own reasons based upon their beliefs, but I think that that there will be some judgment day that lies ahead for us,” stated one member.
