Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) verbally expressed Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that his colleague Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) is endeavoring to overthrow democracy by promulgating he will remonstrate to the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral college win in the Senate on January 6.
Mitchell verbalized, “Your Republican colleague Josh Hawley of Missouri promulgating today he’s going to remonstrate to the Electoral College vote certification on January 6. It’s unlikely to transmute the result, it’s not going to transpire, but it’s going to cause delay, lengthy debate, both Houses in Joint Session. It’s an intricate process that sets off.”
Murphy verbally expressed, “Let’s be pellucid, Josh Hawley and anyone who fortifies his effort are engaged in the endeavored overthrow of democracy. There is no evidence that there was any fraud. Senator Hawley ostensibly believes that if a Democrat wins the Presidential race, it must be illegitimate by definition, even absent any authentic evidence of misconduct.”
He perpetuated, “While you’re right that Senator Hawley’s efforts here are not going to transmute the results of the election, Joe Biden is still going to be president, there won’t be enough votes to overturn the Electoral College, what he is doing and those who support him are doing is breeding in the American public and certainly amongst the hardcore Trump adherents this credence that the Election itself was illegitimate and any time a Democrat acquires victory, it must be illegitimate. That is ultimately going to potentially end in the overthrow of democracy. At some point, there will be a prosperous endeavor by Republicans at the state level or national level to throw out a legitimate Election just because a Democrat acquired victory. We don’t do this in this country, right? We put our country afore our party and our personal credences. Senator Hawley’s efforts are not going to transmute the result of the election, but they pose a grave threat to American democracy, maybe not this year, but two years from now, four years from now, absolutely.”
