House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is standing firm behind the group of Republican senators, led by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), who officially announced that they will object to the January 6th certification of the presidential election results on Wednesday unless there is an emergency 10-day audit of the results by an electoral commission.
The Republican Senators joining Ted Cruz are are Ron Johnson (WI), James Lankford (OK), Steve Daines (MT), John Kennedy (LA), Marsha Blackburn (TN) and Mike Braun (IN), as well as Sens.-elect Cynthia Lummis (WY) Roger Marshall (KS) Bill Hagerty (TN) and Tommy Tuberville (AL).
While appearing on Saturday’s airing of Justice With Judge Jeanine, Rep. McCarthy said that an emergency audit is “one way to unite the nation,” especially in a time when millions of Americans suspect fraudulent acts may have tainted the presidential election results.
“If you want to unite this nation, you’ve got to start with having integrity in your election,” Rep. McCarthy told Judge Jeanine.
“You’ve got questions out there. The American people have questions. What would be wrong with an audit? What would be wrong with bringing the information back so people have all of the information to make those decisions?” he questioned.
“I think it would be one way to unite the nation in trust and make sure if they have problems in these elections, that they are corrected and that we do not go further and continue the mistakes that have been made,” McCarthy said.
“There are a number of states that have come into question here. That’s why we need the integrity in the election. This is the place that we have debate, and it’s healthy,” McCarthy said before pointing out that Democrats have often contested electoral votes with Republican presidents.
“This is not something that’s unusual. This is something that has happened by the Democrats on the last three Republican presidents…So, it’s something that has gone on quite often with the Democrats, so I don’t know why they’d have a problem knowing what has gone on with this election that we have a debate and an openness on this and look at the integrity of what has gone on.
