A group of Republican members of Congress are demanding Congressional hearings over election fraud and calling for an official investigation.
Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks and 18 Republican members of Congress sent a letter Thursday to Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mcconnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanding election fraud hearings.
“The letter requests the recipients do their jobs and conduct voter fraud and election theft hearings and investigations so that Congressmen and Senators will be better informed when Congress faces contests and questions about the legitimacy and validity of various federal elections held on Nov. 3,” Brooks said.
The letter adds that this is an urgent matter “due to federal law mandating that all objections to the receipt of various state electoral college vote submissions be made on January 6, 2021.”

Those who signed the letter sent Thursday were: Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05), Congressman Andy Biggs (AZ-05), Congressman Mike Rogers (AL-03), Congressman Jim Banks (IN-03), Congressman David Rouzer (NC-07), Congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04), Congressman Ted Budd (NC-13), Congressman Lance Gooden (TX-05), Congressman Brian Babin (TX-36), Congressman Bob Gibbs (OH-07), Congressman Ralph Norman (SC-05), Congressman Gregory Steube (FL-17), Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10), Congressman Mike Kelly (PA-16), Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03), Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01), Congressman Randy Weber (TX-14), Congressman Scott DesJarlais (TN-04), Congressman Mike Garcia (CA-25).
“I’m gonna do what I’m gonna do and that’s fight for what I believe is that we need an improvement in our election system whether other people join or not is up to them,” Brooks told CNN this week. “The No. 1 goal is to reject electoral college votes submissions of those states who have such badly systemically flawed election systems, that they will fix them and never perpetuate or enhance the ability of election thieves to engage in voter fraud and election theft in the future.”
The final step in finalizing the presidential election before Inauguration Day comes when Congress counts the votes on Jan. 6, when a state’s results can be put up for debate if a House and Senate member jointly challenge the vote.
