Senator Marsha Blackburn issues statement on why she will object Jan 6th

Moments ago, Senator Marsha Blackburn tweeted “I cannot in good conscience turn a blind eye to the countless allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.”

“On January 6, I will vote in favor of objecting to the certification of the electoral college results,” she added.

“On behalf of Tennesseans, we are taking a united stand against the tainted electoral results from the recent Presidential election,” said Senator Marsha Blackburn and Senator-elect Bill Hagerty in the statement.

“American democracy relies on the consent of the governed,” they continue “Allegations of voter fraud, irregularities and unconstitutional actions diminish public confidence in what should be a free, fair and transparent process. Protecting the integrity of the electoral process is paramount to preserving trust and legitimacy in the final outcome.”

“For critical moments like these, the Constitution reserves the right to challenge the Electoral College results to members of Congress. On January 6, we will vote to oppose certification of the 2020 election results,” the statement concludes.

Blackburn later added in a new tweet “American voters deserve to know the truth before going to the ballot box. Big tech and the mainstream media colluded to protect Joe Biden and prevent President Trump from putting the American people first.”
