Rep. Louie Gohmert on Sunday became the latest Republican to file a lawsuit attempting to restore the legitimate election victory to President Donald Trump — this time by suing Vice President Mike Pence.
CNBC reported: The suit asks federal Judge Jeremy Kernodle, a Trump appointee in eastern Texas, to declare that Pence has the “exclusive authority and sole discretion” to decide which electoral votes from a given state should be counted.
Tom Fitton and Gregg Jarrett discussed the lawsuit Monday on Lou Dobbs.
Tom Fitton was outstanding.
Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement regarding the lawsuit filed against the Vice President:
“The 2020 presidential election was one we’d expect to see in a banana republic, not the United States of America. In fact, the rampant fraud and unconstitutional actions that took place were so egregious that seven contested states– Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin all sent dueling slates of electors to Congress. This puts Vice President Mike Pence in a position where some argue he has to choose between morality and the law. That is not the case.
“It is also critical to note that as many formerly in the mainstream media, now the Alt-Left media, continue to say that every court has said there is no evidence of fraud. That is disingenuous, deceitful, and flat out dishonest. The truth is that no court so far has had the morality and courage to allow evidence of fraud to be introduced in front of it.
