Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas objects to seating rogue lawmakers from states with contested election results

Chip Roy, U.S. Rep. from Texas

WASHINGTON — Rep. Chip Roy (TX-21) issued the following statement Sunday evening after objecting to the seating of members-elect from states where the results of the 2020 election results have been called into question:

Today, I objected to the seating of 67 of my colleagues, representing the delegations from six states: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

I do not make this objection lightly and take no pleasure in it, but believe that I am compelled to do so because a number of my colleagues — whom I hold in high regard — have publicly stated that they plan to object to the acceptance of electors from those particular six states due to their deeply held belief that those states conducted elections plagued by statewide, systemic fraud and abuse that leaves them absolutely no way for this chamber or our constituents to trust the validity of their elections.

Such allegations – if true – raise significant doubts about the elections of at least some of the members of the United States House of Representatives that, if not formally addressed, could cast a dark cloud of suspicion over the validity of this body for the duration of the 117th Congress. After all, those representatives were elected through the very same systems — with the same ballot procedures, with the same signature validations, with the same broadly applied decisions of executive and judicial branch officials — as were the electors chosen for the President of the United States under the laws of those states, which have become the subject of national controversy. And while the legislatures of those states have sent us no formal indication that the results of these elections should not be honored by this body, it would confound basic human reason if the presidential results were to face objection while the congressional results of the same process escaped without public scrutiny.

While the Constitution and the 12th Amendment do not make Congress the judge of the states’ presidential electors, it does require us to be the arbiters of the elections to this body. If the electors for the office of the president were not in question, neither would be the election certificates of my colleagues present here today.

Free, fair, and credible elections are the bedrock of any legitimate, representative government. If we are to adequately address the controversy that currently surrounds our presidential elections, then we owe it to the American people to be consistent in our dealings to that end. Anything less would strip the current efforts of their legitimacy and make it look like a political stunt, rather than a good-faith effort to restore confidence in our electoral process.

Therefore, rather than merely accept the certification of members from those states by our traditional practice without a vote — in effect, by our consent — I believe our body should vote on the certification of those members to ensure the integrity of the House of Representatives is guarded from all suspicion of illegitimacy. I therefore objected and hope that the House leadership will expeditiously set a roll call vote —en bloc — so that our body can take a recorded vote on seating those members.

It is my sincere hope that my objection is not seen as an affront to any of these members personally — as some affected are among my dearest friends — and I regret that my objection may have disrupted what remains of the majesty of the swearing-in process, particularly for my incoming freshmen colleagues with family present. I further understand if my objection causes a colleague to object to my own seating and would welcome a vote in that event.

The father of our country, George Washington, famously called the Constitution — which his wisdom helped craft and guide to fruition — “the guide which I never will abandon.” The members of this body, bound by oath, owe it the same fidelity in this case and all others.

    Your so full of crap the stables can’t scope it out fast enough.

    The douche bag was trying to intimidate him into doing something illegal. Thankfully the guy had GUTS to stand up for the constitution instead of the falsehoods of a jerk that’s a pouting cry baby because he LOST.

      Mr Roy is stating that if R’s can play with EC votes that proves that the newly elected/re-elected shouldn’t be seated because of the same rationalizing used to keep tRump in office.

    The number of votes in the Swing States that we are talking about is VERY LARGE and totally OUTCOME DETERMINATIVE! Only the Democrats and some RINO’S would dare dispute this – even though they know it is true!the number of votes in the Swing States that we are talking about is VERY LARGE and totally OUTCOME DETERMINATIVE!

      Liar, Faker,Hoaxer, Cult Follower if the crackpot told you your head was on backwards you would believe him. Your so gullible.

      If there were EVIDENCE his attorneys would of produced it in the COURTS. They had 60 some chances. NO PROOF.

      If you have never been in a courtroom in your lifetime. I would suggest you do some research.

      Does this help? Another of his quotes:
      “It would confound reason if the presidential results of these states were to face objection while the congressional results of the same process escaped public scrutiny,” Roy said. “Those representatives were elected through the very same systems – with the same ballot procedures, with the same signature validations, with the same broadly applied decisions of executive and judicial branch officials – as were the electors chosen for the president of the United States under the laws of those states.”

    President Trump awakened the American people to this and took on the whole Washington swamp. He has big RINO Republicans who want open borders for cheap labor against him. He has Marxist democrats against him for more central control of our lives to enrich themselves on the back of poor Americans. You can a little food and a subsidized apartment but zero chance at the American dream.

    The problem with the below statement is that a large % of the country don’t even understand what socialism communism is.

    Let me make it easy for you. During every election cycle we either become more free or less free as American people.
    The more government control the less free we are.
    The road to hell is paved with good intentions and we are headed straight to hell With all of those Marxist leaders in Washington.

    The Republican party is trying to coup our election system.

    It’s time for the people to stand our ground, and not let it happen.

    The military works for us the people of the USA not the president. We pay their salary through our taxes NOT the president.

    The Republican party is gutless and afraid of a tweet. I don’t want fraidy cats, cowards, liars, ETC.

    Who wants the party afraid of one man running our government.

    U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., objected to the certification of Ohio’s Electoral College votes in 2005 after the 2004 election, in which George W. Bush won reelection.
    Dozens of Democrats who objected to Electoral College votes after the 2000 and 2016 elections.
    Democrats also had challenges back in 1969. All these were fine, they were against Republicans, they don’t count.
