Madam Speaker, Americans instinctively know there was something wrong with this election. During the campaign, Vice President Biden would do an event and he would get 50 people at the event. President Trump, at just one rally, gets 50,000 people.
President Trump increases votes with African Americans; increases votes with Hispanic Americans; won 19 of 20 bellwether counties; won Ohio by 8; Iowa by 8; and Florida by 3. President Trump got 11 million more votes than he did in 2016, and House Republicans won 27 of 27 toss-up races.
But somehow the guy who never left his house wins the election?
Eighty million Americans, 80 million of our fellow citizens, Republicans and Democrats, have doubts about this election; and 60 million people, 60 million Americans think it was stolen.
But Democrats say: No problem. No worries. Everything is fine.
We asked for an investigation. We asked Chairman Nadler, Chairwoman Maloney for an investigation. They said no. They wouldn’t want to investigate something that half the electorate has doubts about. It is just the Presidency of the United States.
Why? Why not one single investigation? Why not even one single hearing over the last 9 weeks in the United States House of Representatives? Why?
Because all the Democrats care about is making sure President Trump isn’t President.
For 4 and a half years that is all they have cared about.
July 31, 2016, before he was elected the first time, Jim Comey’s FBI takes out the insurance policy; opens an investigation on the President based on nothing.
May 17, 2017, Bob Mueller was named special counsel. Two years they investigate the Russia hoax. Nineteen lawyers, 40 agents and $40 million of taxpayer money for nothing.
December 18, 2019, Democrat House Members vote to impeach President Trump based on an anonymous whistleblower with no firsthand knowledge, who was biased against the President and who worked for Joe Biden.
But none of that worked. As hard as they tried, none of that worked.
They threw everything they had at him.
So what did they do next?
They changed the rules. They changed the election law and they did it in an unconstitutional fashion, and that is what we are going to show over the next several hours of debate.
The Constitution is clear, as Whip Scalise just said. State legislatures and only State legislatures set election law.
In Arizona, the law says voter registration ends on October 5th.
Democrats said: We don’t care what the law says.
They went to a court, got an Obama-appointed judge to extend it 18 days. No debate, as Steve talked about. No debate. No discussion. They just did it.
Pennsylvania, same thing. Pennsylvania laws says mail-in ballots have to be in by 8 p.m. election day.
Democrat Supreme Court said: Nope. We are going to extend it.
Election day doesn’t end on Tuesday now. They took it to Friday.
Extended the election 3 days; not the legislature, the partisan Supreme Court.
Pennsylvania law says mail-in ballots require signature verification.
Democrat secretary of state said: Nope. I am going to decide by myself that it doesn’t, for 2.6 million ballots.
Pennsylvania law says mail-in ballots can’t be processed until election day. Some counties said no. And you can imagine which counties they were.
Democrat-run counties said no and allowed ballots to be cured and fixed before election day.
They did an end-run around the Constitution in every State that Republicans will object to today.
Every single one. It was a pattern.
It was their template. They did it in Arizona. They did it in Georgia.
They did it in Michigan. They did it in Pennsylvania. They did it in Nevada. They did it in Wisconsin.
Yet, some of our Members – some of our Members say: Don’t worry about it. We shouldn’t do anything. Just let it go. It was just six States who violated the Constitution.
What if it is 10 States next time? What if it is 15? What if, in 2024, 2028, it is 26 States? What if it is half the States that do an end-run around what the Constitution clearly spells out?
We are the final check and balance. The authority rests with us, the United States Congress, the body closest to the American people, right where the Founders wanted it.
We should do our duty. We should object to and vote for this objection to the Arizona electors.
