The US Justice dismisses a lawsuit that asked to give Pence powers to appoint Trump as new president

140 Republican congressmen will reject Biden’s proclamation

The United States Justice has dismissed this Friday a lawsuit filed by a Republican congressman and several members of the party in Arizona, in which they asked to grant the power to Vice President Mike Pence to appoint Donald Trump on January 6 as the new president of the United States.

As president of the Senate, Pence will preside over the act in which Biden will be proclaimed the winner next Wednesday, however some Republican voices sought to empower the vice president to decide which Electoral College votes were valid, alleging fraud in the elections and, thus , keep Trump in power.

The judge for the fifth district of Texas, Jeremy Kernodle, appointed by Trump, has not accepted the lawsuit for lack of basis, according to CNN.

Pence himself had asked the court to reject the case that he considered “a walking legal contradiction.”

President-elect Joe Biden will begin his term on January 20.

Despite the lack of evidence and repeated judicial failures, at least 140 Republicans will reject Biden’s proclamation, according to CNN.

The senator from Missouri, Josh Hawley, has announced that he will object to the process so that senators and members of the House must decide whether or not to vote in favor of the electoral result, which will increase the duration of the act by a few hours.

The leader of the Republicans in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, has asked the senators not to show their objection to the election and has assured in a meeting with the rest of the senators that their vote on January 6 will be the most “consistent vote. “of his political career, according to ‘Axios’.

The Republican senator from Nebraska Ben Sasse has also asked his colleagues not to try to annul the elections, since Trump has not provided evidence of the fraud and has assured that the president and his allies are “playing with fire.”

Tensions between McConnell and Trump have escalated after the former acknowledged Biden’s victory in the election, after which the president has hindered his work in the House.

In recent weeks, he vetoed the Defense budget law and, after delaying the signing of the economic stimulus package to deal with the pandemic for a week, continues to ask for checks for 2,000 dollars for those affected by the economic crisis, another measure of the Democrats like it more than legislators from their own party.
