Texas GOP Rep. announces “Today, I objected to the seating of my colleagues from six states”

Sunday, Texas Republican Congressman Chip Roy tweeted “Today, I objected to the seating of my colleagues from six states: AZ, GA, MI, NV, PA, and WI.”

He continues “It would confound reason if the presidential results of these states were to face objection while the congressional results of the same process escaped public scrutiny.”

Roy add in subsequent tweets:

I believe our body should vote on the certification of those members to ensure the integrity of the House of Representatives is guarded from all suspicion of illegitimacy.

While the Constitution and the 12th Amendment do not make Congress the judge of the states’ presidential electors, it does require us to be the arbiters of the elections to this body.

If the electors for the office of the president were not in question, neither would be the election certificates of my colleagues present here today.
