HMM… Republican Senators Block Inauguration Committee From Recognizing Biden As President-Elect

GOP lawmakers block inauguration committee from recognizing Biden as president-elect

Republicans on the committee in charge of inaugural ceremonies nixed a resolution that would have affirmed the panel was preparing for President-elect Joe Biden’s transition in January.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blocked the motion, preventing the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies from publicly accepting that the inauguration on Jan. 20 will be for Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

The motion was offered by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, who called the Republicans’ efforts to block the move “astounding,” adding that it aids in undermining faith in the integrity of the election.

“It is imperative that JCCIC proceed with plans for their inauguration and coordinate with the Biden Presidential Inaugural Committee,” Hoyer said in a statement. “Instead, Republicans are refusing even to allow JCCIC to say that President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris will be inaugurated on January 20, even when there is no serious dispute over that fact.”

What is going on here?

Republicans should make their reasons for doing this clear. Millions of Americans would love to know what this is all about.

Here’s one possible reason:

Democrats are in such an obvious hurry to get everything declared in Biden’s favor.
