Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks

Alabama Republican Rep. Mo Brooks on Dec. 2 told reporters that he plans to challenge the Electoral College votes when Congress meets to certify the election for Democrat Joe Biden on Jan. 6.

Brooks confirmed his plans to The Hill, repeating President Trump’s claims that the 2020 election was riddled with voter fraud. Evidence to support this — in the form of sworn witness affidavits submitted under threat of perjury by everyday Americans who witnessed suspicious activities at polling places —  is currently being heard in several states where vote-counting was mysteriously halted on election night, after which Trump lost huge leads. 

“I’m doing this because in my judgment this is the worst election theft in the history of the United States. And if there was a way to determine the Electoral College outcome using only lawful votes cast by eligible American citizens, then Donald Trump won the Electoral College,” he said in an interview with The Hill.

“I’m not focused on what is in the legal pleadings in all these lawsuits all over the country. There’s some number of votes that probably were illegal in some different places to some degree. That is not that abnormal,” he added.

The Alabama Republican said Congress is better suited to look into the matter than the courts, since the issue extends beyond the court cases filed by the Trump campaign.

“It is extremely difficult in a court of law to determine how many illegal votes were cast and who they were cast for. And that is one of the reasons why the FBI, the Justice Department and the federal judiciary are wholly inadequate for handling this issue,” he said. 

“And also one of the reasons why the writers of the United States Constitution determined that it would be unwise for federal courts that even the Supreme Court to be the arbiter,” he added. 

Brooks declared there are “much broader, much bigger systemic flaws with America’s election system.”
