Several Congressmen Meet in White House; Trump Requests New Electors for Jan. 6 Electoral College

The White House chief of staff Mark Meadows announced that President Donald Trump just met with several members of Congress to plan an effort to “fight back” against the Electoral College results.

Several members of Congress just finished a meeting in the Oval Office with President @realDonaldTrump, preparing to fight back against mounting evidence of voter fraud. Stay tuned,” Meadows wrote Monday evening.

The message seems to allude to a plan for House Republicans to object to the Electoral College vote when Congress meets to certify the results on January 6.

Just minutes later, President Donald Trump posted a tweet seeming to urge conservatives to “Call on State Legislators to Appoint New Electors, in Accordance with the Constitution.”

The tweet links to a website where the opening text reads “The evidence overwhelmingly shows officials in key battleground states—as the result of a coordinated pressure campaign by Democrats and allied groups—violated the Constitution, state and federal law in changing mail-in voting rules that resulted in unlawful and invalid certifications of Biden victories.”

Representative-elect for Georgia’s 14th congressional district Marjorie Taylor Greene uploaded a video on Twitter of her leaving the White House meeting. In the tweet, she claimed that a “rapidly growing” group of Republicans in both the House and Senate are supporting their cause.

Just yesterday it was reported that Florida congressman Matt Gaetz said that he plans to object to the Electoral College vote as well.

So on January 6, I’m joining with the fighters in the Congress and we are going to object to electors from states that didn’t run clean elections,” Gaetz said during his speech at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit.

Gaetz will be joining Alabama congressman Mo Brooks who announced earlier this month that he will be objecting to the electoral college votes.

Gaetz also stated that he had spoken to Alabama senator Tommy Tuberville who told him that he plans on joining the effort.
