Republicans' Bid To Overturn Joe Biden's Victory Ends by byrron(m): 8:02am On Jan 07
The Republican bid to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's victory ended early Thursday morning after the Senate voted 92-7 to dismiss a challenge to Pennsylvania's Electoral College vote.

The vote ended a nearly 12-hour saga that saw supporters of President Donald Trump mobbing the U.S. Capitol, in a violent incident that left four dead.

Senators had returned to their chamber to debate an objection sponsored by Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley after midnight.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who told GOP senators not to engage in this effort to begin with, skipped two hours of permitted debate and went straight for a vote.

Hawley was joined by his co-accomplice, Sen. Ted Cruz, as well as Florida Sen. Rick Scott, Mississippi Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith and newly minted Sens. Cynthia Lummis, Roger Marshall, and Tommy Tuberville.

The rest of the Senate voted the Pennsylvania challenge down.

Both houses have to vote in favor of a challenge for it to succeed.

The Democrat-controlled House is due to vote shortly on the Pennsylvania challenge, but the effort will fail there too.

Before Hawley threw the lawmakers back to their respective houses, Biden was on the precipice of the 270 Electoral College he needed: 244-157.

Republicans in the House and Senate had also challenged the votes in Arizona - which prompted two hours of debate, interrupted by the MAGA riot - and that objection was overwhelmingly overruled.

House Republicans also tried to challenge the results in Georgia, Michigan and Nevada, but didn’t have Senate support.

It's Ok

Their system is still far far better than ours. Their hoodlums are far better educated than ours.
That's why when they do crazy shits, they do it with plain heart and to the extreme. But here, we do it with irrationality.

Donald Orubebe Trump still hanging in there.....
We feel sorry for him somehow sha!




People funny o cheesy
Wetin Trump no go see for white house?


khiaa:
The answer is simple, we hate Trump and voted him out. Trump is the most hated man in America and we all voted early and by mail. He whined about losing so we did it again and Georgia came through for the whole country.

Now about Biden. I don't trust his racist ass either nor that Kamala wench who only claim to be black to get votes. Before running she was Indian.
From an American perspective.
Now we understand a bit more.
Thanks Ms Khiaa!

The most horrible tenure by a US president in the history of the Union. He also ensured the GOP is as divided as ever.
