The Capitol has been breached, and the House is in recess


Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a Democrat from Minnesota, pushed back against Sen. Ted Cruz’s claims that the election was fraudulent, saying he didn’t make the same arguments for lawmakers who were elected on the same ballots.

“I did not see Senator Cruz over at the swearing-in of the House of Representatives last Sunday asking for an audit. He did not stop their swearing in, because there was no fraud. He did not ask for an audit, because we had a fair election,” she said during the debate on the Senate floor on an objection to Arizona’s electoral votes.

The senator also pointed out several lawsuits that were dismissed by courts in Arizona.

“What matters is not our futures, not our own short-term destinies. What matters is our democracy’s destiny, because, I think many of us know, people will not know who we are 100 years from now, or 200 years from now, but what they will know is this – they will know what we did today, how we voted today, and that is more important than who we are,” Klobuchar said.
