Conservative Louie Gohmert, Others Sue Pence To Stop Biden from Taking Office
(Conservative) Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas on Monday sued Vice President Mike Pence in federal court in an effort to force him to block votes from swing states when he presides over the Jan. 6 congressional certification of the 2020 Electoral College winner.
Right now, Democrat Joe Biden is slated to be certified as the election winner in that meeting, setting him up for inauguration on Jan. 20.
According to reports, though, Gohmert and other Republicans are seeking to compel the vice president into refusing to accept votes from several swing states, thus allowing President Donald Trump to declare victory..........
..........the Republican lawsuit, which was filed against Pence in his official capacity as vice president, asks a federal judge in Texas to strike down the law as unconstitutional. The GOP plaintiffs go further: They ask the court to grant Pence the authority on Jan. 6 to effectively overturn Trump's defeat in key battleground states."
