Reportedly, at least 140 House Republicans are expected to object to the certification of the Electoral College votes. There is only one senator on board so far.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told the Senate he didn’t want them to join the effort. But, Senator Josh Hawley went his own way and said he couldn’t vote to certify the Electoral votes.
Hawley stated that he “cannot vote to certify without pointing out the unprecedented effort of mega-corporations, including Facebook and Twitter, to interfere in this election, in support of Joe Biden. At the very least, Congress should investigate allegations of voter fraud and adopt measures to secure the integrity of our elections.”
Hawley said, “But Congress has so far failed to act.”
Democrats have done the same thing when they didn’t like the way an election went, but Republicans are insulted for doing the same thing.

Tapper interviewed the Trump-hating husband of Kellyanne Conway, knowing he’d make the comments he wanted to hear:
