Not one or two but 140 House Republicans are expected to object to the Electoral College vote.
Two House Republicans have just announced that over 140 House Republicans plan to reject the electoral college votes.
Se, Josh Hawley who hasn’t been shying about objecting to the Electoral College vote was quoted saying “I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on January 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws,”.
The rejections of the Electoral College vote will lead to debates in both chambers of Congress and ultimately lead to a vote regarding whether Electoral college votes in states that committed election fraud should be counted or not.

Breitbart News covered the new development and released these details:
At least 140 GOP lawmakers in the soon-to-be 117th Congress will object to the electoral college vote on January 6, some lawmakers predict.
Congress will formally count the electoral college votes from each state on January 6, three days after the new Congress is sworn in. While existing members and newcomers of the House have released statements indicating that they will object, some lawmakers expect there to be “at least 140 Republican Members of the House” joining the effort in objecting to the certification of a Joe Biden victory:
Similarly, Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA), who lost his party’s nomination earlier this year, reportedly told Forbes that the number of GOP lawmakers united in the effort is “staggering.”
BREAKING: 140 or more House Republicans will object to the electoral college on January 6th.
Who else is happy to hear this? ✋🏾

CNN broke the story and had this to add:
Two Republican members of the House of Representatives tell CNN that they expect at least 140 of their GOP colleagues in the House to vote against counting the electoral votes on January 6 when Congress is expected to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
Both a House member and senator are required to mount an objection when Congress counts the votes. Republican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri said Wednesday he will object, which will force lawmakers in both the House and Senate to vote on whether to accept the results of Biden’s victory. Other senators — including incoming ones — could still join that effort, which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has privately urged Republicans not to do.
January 6th will separate the sheep and the goats.
Keep a close eye on your local Senator and Representative and see if they back our President.
