Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has very limited time left in office.
She has already lost her primary, so she has only four months remaining to push her anti-Trump agenda.
Cheney will try to go out with a bang, hoping to change the rules on how electors are processed in an election.
The Electoral Count Act
Basically, the legislation will make it harder to challenge electors and eliminate the vice president from the process altogether.
Congress would be forced to accept state electoral results as they are turned in, with any exceptions being settled with a supermajority vote.
The one misconception regarding the process is just how much power the VP has during this process.
As was noted in legislation presented earlier on this issue, the role of the VP is “solely ministerial” already.
Trump has always pushed back on that, believing that Mike Pence had the authority to send the electors back to the states for recertification.
There are clearly some constitutional issues at stake here, which I am sure will all be brought up during the debate stages of the legislation.
I have no doubt the bill will pass through the House, but I am not sure there will be 10 Republicans that will support this bill unless Senator McConnell (R-KY) gets on board and rallies his RINO troops.
