Once again we were proven to be correct….
According to the latest reports, the sham January 6th Committee is now trying to use their proceedings as a front to change election law.
Who here can honestly say that they’re surprised by this development?
The specific legislation in question is the Electoral Count Act of 1887, which Democrat supporters claim is the reason that the riots occurred on January 6th.
Never mind the increasing mountain of evidence which points to a deep state ploy in order to further an agenda.
Democrats and liberals seemed to be all for the idea:
January 6th was only possible b/c of the stupid Electoral Count Act of 1887. It HAS to be changed b/c it lets state legislatures, governors & Congress potentially overturn election results. Call your rep (202-225-3121) & senators (202-224-3121) to demand they prioritize reform.

Never forget that in 2020 dozens of sitting members of Congress tried to throw out entire states’ votes with zero evidence of wrongdoing or widespread fraud.
And that a simple majority vote in both chambers would have allowed it.
We must reform the Electoral Count Act of 1887. https://t.co/dTxyoz5Nie

The New York Times writes:
Members of the select congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack at the Capitol are pressing to overhaul the complex and little-known law that former President Donald J. Trump and his allies tried to use to overturn the 2020 election, arguing that the ambiguity of the statute puts democracy itself at risk.
The push to rewrite the Electoral Count Act of 1887 — enacted more than a century ago in the wake of another bitterly disputed presidential election — has taken on new urgency in recent weeks as more details have emerged about the extent of Mr. Trump’s plot to exploit its provisions to cling to power.
If one just ignores Trump's "Electoral Count Act of 1887" then there is no risk of us losing our democracy. This is how easy and fast we can erase Trump. Actually the American people do that everyday they live their lives and just ignore the GQP. https://t.co/A7q5QeDIny

Just The News states:
The committee calls the act “severely flawed” and recommended changes, including “limiting the grounds for a lawmaker to object to counting a state’s votes and clarifying that the vice president’s role in the process is merely ministerial, and thus lacking the authority to unilaterally throw out a state’s votes. It has also recommended setting clearer time limits for states to choose electors,” the Times reports.
Anti-Trump committee member Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) said the act “is directly at issue,” and changes would be recommended.
