Republican Lawmaker Sues Vice President Pence

Louie Gohmert alongside other Republicans are suing Vice President Pence in an effort to overturn the 2020 presidential election. The lawsuit centers on Pence’s role in a Congressional meeting on Jan. 6 to formalize the state’s Electoral votes. The lawsuit filed in Texas asks that Pence is granted the authority to overturn the results in multiple battleground states. Pence’s role in presiding over the meeting is mostly ceremonial governed by the Electoral Count Act of 1887.

The Hill reports:

But the Republican lawsuit, which was filed against Pence in his official capacity as vice president, asks a federal judge in Texas to strike down the law as unconstitutional. The GOP plaintiffs go further: They ask the court to grant Pence the authority on Jan. 6 to effectively overturn Trump’s defeat in key battleground states.

The GOP lawsuit is premised on the dubious notion that the election results in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are in doubt, despite Biden winning each of those states by a decisive margin. The litigants seek to authorize Pence to select slates of electors from those states who would cast votes for Trump rather than Biden.

Election law experts said there’s a strong possibility that U.S. District Judge Jeremy Kernodle, a Trump appointee, would find that Gohmert, Ward and the other Republican litigants lacked a legal right to sue.

“I’m not at all sure that the court will get to the merits of this lawsuit, given questions about the plaintiffs’ standing to bring this kind of claim, as well as other procedural obstacles,” Foley said.

Do you think Republicans will succeed in the latest attempt to keep Trump in the White House for another four years? Tell us what you think below.

  1. Since SCOTUS negated their judicial responsibility and duty to the American people in refusing to take the suit brought by state of Texas and supported by other 17 states of the union, we the people need to find any and all legal venues to reverse the fraudulent election of these treasonous element of corrupt politicians. Please look at all the collected evidence brought by the courageous attorney Sidney Powers and there is no doubt that we the people were betrayed by the swamp creatures and assisted by the media and all foreign & domestic foes of this country, particularly , China and Russia and all globalists at large since their only obstacle is President Trump and we the people of this great nation founded under the trust of God Almighty!!! In Him we trust!!!

  2. It now appears this is the only way to save our republic from the advance of socialism / communism. Would this be effective? One can only hope and pray.

  3. Our country is based on justice. The gross injustice of fraud in the election system is apparent and the states that are involved in this fraud should have all votes cancelled and a new vote taken using fingerprints to verify the votes to eliminate fraud. People who have voted in anther state already and attempt to vote another time should be given an automatic jail sentence of at least a year.

  4. Truthfully I don’t know . But I certainly hope so. Over 90% of American’s say that communist China JOE and his slutfuck horse KAMALA hairyass is not interested in the ignorance of the leftist COMMUNIST DAMOCRAPS IDEA . personally I believe all of them deserve to be shot right between the eyeballs . And I would love to VOLUNTEER to squeeze the trigger . THAT WPULD MAKE A MOST WONDERFUL DAY IN AMERICA . After all the ONLY THING A COMMUNIST IS GOOD FOR IS SHOOTING THEM PLUMB DEAD. POW BO GONE YOU WORTHLESS COMMUNIST SON’S OF B—CHES

  5. The Repbli-con’s (carpetbagger’s at best) just used this great man for their own advancement. Not much better than the dumbassacrat communist scum who hated his America first agenda.
    How dare we go against their new world ORDER to our enslavement.
    Pence (remember) wasn’t sure if he wanted to be Trumps VP.
    That’s a hoosier for ya.
