The Pennsylvania Senate asked the U.S. Congress to postpone approving the results of the electoral college vote, which will be held on January 6. The corresponding document was posted on his Twitter account by U.S. President Donald Trump.
According to the Senate, most of its members are concerned about the discrepancies in the voting results in the presidential election in the state. The lawmakers also noted that Pennsylvania’s governor, secretary of state, and state Supreme Court committed numerous election irregularities. They believe that the state secretary of state should not have approved the Pennsylvania election results.
Members of the Senate have asked that congressional approval of the electoral college vote be delayed, especially given that the U.S. Supreme Court will hear Trump’s election irregularities case in the coming days.
Trump, for his part, said such a decision by the state legislature is “big news.”
On January 5, the current president said that Vice President Michael Pence has the right to review the results of the November 3 presidential election. According to the American leader, Pence has all the necessary powers to invalidate the electors who were fraudulently elected in the disputed states. The New York Times later reported that Pence refused to change the election results at Trump’s behest.
In response, Trump called the vice president’s refusal to change the results a lie. He stressed that Pence had never said such a thing, and they were in agreement.
