The campaign advisor to President Donald Trump said the team plans to show evidence during a likely congressional debate on Jan. 6 if House and Senate members object to votes from the Electoral College of states.
As of Wednesday, it appears that during the Joint Session of Congress, at least one Senate member, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), and a host of House lawmakers would object to the electoral votes. Hawley declared that he would object to the electoral vote, referring to prior Democratic attempts during the presidential elections of 2004 and 2016 to do so. An hours-long discussion will arise following the objection.
Miller said evidence could be raised in Congress, which would vary from what has been presented by the Trump campaign in the courts over the past few weeks.
During the interview Miller mentioned a lawsuit Rep. Louie Gohmert is involved in that Miller said argues that it “should be the vice president overseeing the Senate that should have the final say if a slate of electors are chosen. And so we hope that Congressman Gohmert will be successful in this and that we’re gonna actually have a chance in front of the American people next week to present these cases, all these evidences of fraud and really go and make sure that the American people see it so we can have full confidence in our elections,” Miller told Newsmax.
Miller told the outlet that the 1887 Electoral Count Act allows the vice president, who is the president of the Senate, to preside over the Joint Session of Congress.
Miller said the team of President Donald Trump is seeking to show suspected evidence of voter fraud or irregularities in the Nov. 3 election, including rule amendments involving mail-in ballots in Wisconsin, “suitcases of ballots” in Georgia being wheeled out late at night on Nov. 3 in the State Farm Center of Atlanta, and being blocked from reviewing voting systems in Arizona and Michigan, claiming that ball is blocked in Arizona and Michigan.
“These are the specific types of evidence we want to present to the American people on the national stage and not allow local politicians to sweep it under the rug,” Miller said.
Weeks earlier, a surveillance video from the State Farm Center presented by Trump’s team headed by Rudy Giuliani showed suitcase-like boxes being wheeled from under a table. It came after other staff and poll observers were reportedly told by election officials that counting was done for the night.
The Georgia GOP said they got contradictory and inaccurate responses and comments from officials from Fulton County about what happened on Election Night, and officials later admitted that until the early hours of the morning, voting-counting continued. State election officials said nothing suspicious happened with the ballot boxes and vote-tabulation process in Fulton County in response to the video.
Elaborating on Wisconsin, he said, “Article II of the Constitution makes it very clear, the state legislatures, and state legislatures alone, set up the voting systems for each state, the codes and the way they are conducted.” He said, “And what we have here is we have over 20,000 ballots that were cast without actually having an application on file, the mail ballots. Wisconsin’s very clear, very specific you got to have an application on file.”
