In humiliating setback for Democrats, Republicans on Inaugural Committee refuse to legitimize rigged election results
Democrats are beside themselves after a Senate resolution to recognize Joe Biden as the real president-elect failed to pass.
The Inaugural Committee voted down a resolution by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) on Tuesday naming Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden president-elect, with all three Republican members voting against it.
After the 3-3 vote, Hoyer issued a statement accusing the GOP of “threatening democracy.”
“The extent to which Republicans are refusing to accept the outcome of the election and recognize Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as our next President and Vice President is astounding. Their continued deference to President Trump’s post-election temper tantrums threatens our democracy and undermines faith in our system of elections,” Hoyer stated.
POLITICO reporter Heather Caygle noted that the resolution was meant to “notify the American people” that Congress was making preparations to inaugurate Biden and Harris.
The committee comprises Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO).
This move is an embarrassing setback for Democrats and the media intent on insisting that Biden is the legitimate winner of the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
