President Trump on Saturday promised a "wild" protest in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6, as he continued to deny that he lost the election.
"Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election," he tweeted. "Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!"
...Some Trump allies have planned to call for a debate in the House when the election results are received. However, those plans were dealt a blow when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell asked his Republican colleagues in the Senate not to contest the election results on Jan. 6, when a joint session of Congress formally accepts the count.
McConnell’s move could effectively end any hopes of a last-minute reprieve for the president. A majority of both chambers of Congress (including the Democratic-controlled House) would be needed to upend the election results.
Rep. Jim Jordan plans to participate in Jan. 6 efforts on the House of Representatives floor to question the propriety of Democrat Joe Biden’s election as president, the Champaign County Republican said in a pair of television interviews.
...Trump supporters now hope to challenge the results during a Jan. 6 joint session of Congress when the House of Representatives and Senate meet to count and certify Electoral College votes. Alabama GOP Rep. Mo Brooks, a member of the House Freedom Caucus that Jordan co-founded, has said he will raise objections during the meeting. For the challenge to be effective, one member of the House of Representatives and one member of the U.S. Senate have to submit objections in writing. So far, nobody in the Senate has stepped forward to do so, and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has warned that doing so would be counterproductive.
Trump supporters are planning a rally on Jan. 6, the same day Congress is set to officially approve the 2020 election results, according to a flyer on the Trump March website.
The organization's website said they plan to "demand transparency and protect the election integrity" after President Trump warned via Twitter that there would be a "very big" and "wild" protest on Jan. 6 after he refuses to concede due to unfound allegations of election fraud.
"The president is calling on us to come back to Washington on January 6th for a big protest--' Be there, will be wild,'" the group stated on a flyer posted on their website.
