Dem Rep. calls for Pelosi to not seat 126 GOP lawmakers who backed Texas lawsuit

In a letter to Nancy Pelosi, Democrat Rep. Bill Pascrell Jr. of New Jersey asks Nancy Pelosi to refuse to seat the 126 Republicans who supported the Texas SCOTUS lawsuit.

Pascrell writes in his letter “stated simply, the men and women who would act to tear the United States Government apart cannot serve as Members of the Congress.”

“These lawsuits seeking to obliterate public confidence in our democratic system by invalidating the clear results of the 2020 presidential election undoubtedly attack the text and the spirit of the Constitution, which each Member swears to support and defend,” he continues. “Today I’m calling on House leaders to refuse to seat any Members trying to overturn the election and make donald trump an unelected dictator.”

Pelosi tweeted Friday “The U.S. Supreme Court has rightly dismissed out of hand the sham GOP lawsuit to overturn the will of millions of American voters.”
