Florida U.S. Rep. Brian Mast Says He Will Oppose Certifying The Presidential Election Results

There is no evidence to support the claim that President Donald Trump won re-election. Courts across the country, including the U.S. Supreme Court, have rejected the GOP’s post-election challenges.

Representative Brian Mast joins the list of Republican lawmakers attempting to question the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Mast represents Florida's 18th congressional district which covers parts of Palm Beach, St.Lucie, and Martin counties. He said on his Twitter account yesterday that he is protesting congressional leadership and will oppose the certification of the Presidential election results.

“I will oppose certifying the Presidential election results on January 6th,” Mast wrote.

Mast says Congress refuses to investigate Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, over what he calls a “sham impeachment investigation” that was conducted “solely for the purpose of delegitimizing the President.”

He justified his decision because “millions of Americans have important questions about voter fraud.”

There is no evidence to support the claim that President Donald Trump won re-election. Courts across the country, including the U.S. Supreme Court, have rejected the GOP’s post-election challenges.

Congress counts the Electoral College votes on Wednesday to certify President-elect Joe Biden's win. 538 electors make up the Electoral College; Biden won 306 to 232.

Congress does not have the authority to overturn the results of a presidential election.
