Republican Leaders Block Congressional Recognition Of Biden’s Inauguration

Some Republicans are still fighting for President Donald Trump.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and Republican Sen. Roy Blunt blocked a motion on Tuesday that would have allowed the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies to publicly accept that the upcoming inauguration will be for President-elect Joe Biden.

Democrat Rep. Steny Hoyer brought the “motion to affirm that inaugural preparation,” which would commence for Joe Biden.

Republicans on the committee stoutly refused.

 

“Today, at a meeting of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC), Republicans voted to reject a motion offered by House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) that the committee affirm that it is preparing for the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris in coordination with the Biden Presidential Inaugural Committee,” read a statement from Rep. Steny H. Hoyer.
