WASHINGTON, D.C. — One week from Sunday, members of the 117th Congress will meet in Washington, D.C. Days later, on Wednesday, January 6th a joint session of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives could certify the electoral college vote, finalizing Joe Biden as America’s 46th president. But several republicans, including Texas Rep. Lance Gooden plan to object to the vote. In an interview with KTBS 3, Gooden said Americans are split on whether the election was fair and wants an independent counsel to investigate.
“My thinking is, if we’ve got a president, no matter who it is, that is rightfully elected, and both sides agree that the election was fair then we’re in a great place as a nation,” said Gooden. “We’re not there right now.”
