Jake Johnson: Co-Conspirators in Sedition

Here Are the Names of Every Republican Who Voted to Overturn Election Results.

In the wake of an assault on the U.S. Capitol by a fascist mob ginned up by President Donald Trump, many Republicans in the House and Senate still voted Thursday to object to President-elect Joe Biden’s decisive election win in a lie-fueled, last-ditch attempt to overturn the results of the democratic process and disenfranchise tens of millions of voters.

The effort ultimately failed as Congress voted in the early hours of Thursday morning to certify Biden’s victory over the Republican objections, but progressive lawmakers are demanding accountability for the GOP members who were complicit in the Trump-led coup attempt.

“They are co-conspirators in sedition,” Rep. Mondaire Jones (D-N.Y.) said of the Republican lawmakers who objected to the certification of Biden’s win.

As Common Dreams reported Wednesday, Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) is planning to introduce a resolution calling for the expulsion of lawmakers who “incited this domestic terror attack through their attempts to overturn the election.”

“They have broken their sacred Oath of Office,” Bush added.

In a statement late Wednesday, Brian Kettering of the Center for Popular Democracy Action said in support of Bush’s resolution that “Trump and members of Congress must face consequences for inciting an attempted coup to stop the peaceful transition of power, which is enshrined into our Constitution.”

“We cannot stand by,” said Kettering, “while the very people elected to protect our democracy encourage violent attempts to overthrow the government.”

Below are the names of the Republican lawmakers in the House and Senate who voted in favor of rejecting electoral votes from Arizona and Pennsylvania, battleground states that Biden carried.

    Shameful. But one could see it coming for weeks now. It was the best failure we could all have hoped for. I hope the DO invoike the 25th.

    It isn’t over once Trump leaves office. It’s sickening that there are this many elected officials willing to buy into this fantasy. Over the last 20 years they’ve grown so used to getting their way, they operate as if the ends-justify-the-means. I hope they were all scared shitless by yesterday’s events. I wish worse on them, actually, but I’m ashamed to admit that. Nothing before in my life has made me entertain visions of actually harming another human being. It’s easy to understand how our idiots in charge have succeeded in whipping the lowest common denominator into a frenzy– the poor, uneducated members of our society. Treason has been committed at the highest level, and it’s a shame we won’t likely see any punishment for THAT. I wish I could see you-know-who in chains and an orange suit.
