Gohmert After Court Dismisses Suit: If Congress Doesn’t Overturn Election, ‘It Will Mean the End of Our Republic’

After a federal judge threw out a lawsuit challenging the results of the electoral college and making Vice President Mike Pence the sole arbitrator of which electors to certify, Texas House Rep. Louie Gohmert (R) appeared on Newsmax to explain what he believes it means.

In one clip, Gohmert started out by lamenting that “If I don’t have standing to do that then nobody does and if an appropriate defendant is not the Vice President that under the Constitution has empowered to make that determination, then there is –.”

“Bottom line is, the court is saying, ‘We’re not going to touch this. You have no remedy’ — basically, in effect, the ruling would be that you gotta go the streets and be as violent as Antifa and BLM,” Gohmert continued, in an admission of what may be to come on Jan. 6 and beyond.

Gohmert pointed out in another clip that “There are people all over the country praying that people will get a backbone and so, you know, John Quincy Adams said, ‘The work is ours, the result is up to God.'”

“We will keep laboring and working and trying to do everything we can to see that people come to the right conclusion because I’m telling you, if they do not, it will mean the end of our republic, the end of this little experiment of self-government,” Gohmert concluded.

Judge Jeremy Kernodle ruled that the plaintiffs don’t have standing to sue and that they hadn’t met the requirement that they show they’ve been injured by the defendant and that the relief they ask for would redress that injury.

Judge Kernodle was nominated to his position by President Trump in 2018 and was confirmed later that year. We will bring updates as we can if Gohmert continues his push or comes up with any new ideas, while President Trump’s other strategies to contest the election continue to play out as January 6th looms.
