According to a new report from Fox News, President Trump met with allies Monday who plan to raise electoral college objections January 6th.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene atteneded and said “we will be raising objections to the Electoral College votes for Joe Biden for multiple states.”
“Some people just haven’t totally gone public yet, but we’re going to have a lot of people on board, and we definitely have senators,” she added.
Per Fox News, Greene said the White House meeting included Trump, Vice President Pence, Trump’s legal team and about 15 House members, including GOP Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Andy Biggs of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama, Matt Gaetz of Florida and Louie Gohmert of Texas.
A growing number of Republican lawmakers have now publicly stated are planning on challenge the January 6th electoral vote.
Rep. Mo Brooks was one of the first to announce his intentions.

Rep. Gaetz made the promise during his speech at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit.
“So on January 6, I’m joining with the fighters in the Congress and we are going to object to electors from states that didn’t run clean elections,” Gaetz said.

Not doing this to help my career in Washington, in fact this will most likely harm it. But no one should go to Washington as a career. Go there to serve the people. And on behalf of the people I am contesting this election based on constitutional violations by key states. pic.twitter.com/puDmUZAbaw

Rep. Jody Hice:
I will lead an objection to Georgia's electors on Jan 6.
The courts refuse to hear the President's legal case.
We're going to make sure the People can!

Rep. Brian Babin:
Confidence in our elections must be restored. If Congress doesn't act, on Jan 6 I'll object to the electoral college vote submissions on the House floor on behalf of the millions of Americans, myself included, who don't trust the validity of this election. https://t.co/wC86vzPx45

Appearing on NewsmaxTV, Rep. Andy Biggs said he supports Rep. Mo Brooks plan to challenge the electoral college votes.
“Yeah right now, i’m leaning in heavy support of that plan,” Biggs said “because we’ve seen so many allegations…let’s just say, like Rand Paul, I think there was a lot of fraud here.”
Senator Tuberville is reportedly still considering the move. President Trump has urged him to do so.
That’s because he is a great champion and man of courage. More Republican Senators should follow his lead. We had a landslide victory, and then it was swindled away from the Republican Party – but we caught them. Do something! https://t.co/nZU0czsZgB
