Sheila Jackson Lee Is Still Questioning the Validity of Trump's Win

Sheila Jackson Lee Is Still Questioning the Validity of Trump's Win

Donald Trump was formally certified as the victor of the 2016 Presidential Election last night, but not before a handful of Democratic members of Congress tried to object.

Capitol Hill staff members carry boxes of Electoral College ballots to a joint session of Congress to count the votes in Washington D.C., the United States, on January 6, 2017.

The president-elect will kick off his official inaugural events on Thursday, Jan. 19 with a wreath laying at Arlington National Cemetery followed by a "Make America Great Again!"

In Biden's shoes that day was Vice President Al Gore, the Democratic nominee who went up against Bush.

"In that case, the objection can not be entertained", Biden said.

"There can be no debate", Biden said repeatedly. Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., took a photo of Jackson Lee arm-in-arm with Biden and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi on the House floor with Jackson Lee's cell phone.

California Democrats Rep. Barbara Lee and Rep. Maxine Waters, along with Rep. James McGovern of MA and Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas challenged the electoral vote certification on Friday. Waters said to boos from Republicans.

Chairwomen Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX) questions acting Transportation Security Administration Administrator, Gale Rossides during a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Capitol Hill, December 16, 2009 in Washington, DC. But he added that Republicans were prepared in case an objection succeeded. "This is not about trying to stop Donald Trump from becoming President", Perlmutter said in the statement. An objection would prompt each house of Congress to meet to resolve the objection; Republicans control both houses and could have quickly voted to overrule them. Not surprisingly, several protesters were ejected from the public gallery as the vote count concluded. Also Hillary Clinton received 227 votes pledged to her. "How much is known about the foreign disruption of our election?" Clinton lost four Democratic electors in Washington state and one in Hawaii.

According to what I read, the recount was only requested to verify the integrity of the election process -- not change the outcome. They saw what was happening in the last two weeks before the (election) and knew they were in big trouble — which is why they cancelled their big fireworks at the last minute.
