Trump campaign senior advisor Jason Miller during an interview on Newsmax TV expressed the hope that evidence pertaining to election-related issues will be shared directly with the American people next week.
If a minimum of one member of each congressional chamber objects to the electoral vote returns of a state during a joint session of Congress presided over by the vice president on Jan. 6, each chamber will separately debate for up to two hours and then vote on the objection, according to the Congressional Research Service: "An objection to a state's electoral vote must be approved by both houses in order for any contested votes to be excluded."
During the interview Miller mentioned a lawsuit Rep. Louie Gohmert is involved in that Miller said argues that it "should be the vice president overseeing the Senate that should have the final say if a slate of electors are chosen. And so we hope that Congressman Gohmert will be successful in this and that we're gonna actually have a chance in front of the American people next week to present these cases, all these evidences of fraud and really go and make sure that the American people see it so we can have full confidence in our elections," Miller said.
Miller mentioned during the interview multiple examples of election-related concerns. "These are the specific types of evidence that we want to be able to present to the American public on the national stage and not allow local politicians to sweep it under the rug," he said.
