Objections to both Arizona and Pennsylvania electoral votes were defeated, but not without quite a showing in the House
Some first hand accounts from within the Capitol during the coup attempt:
Inside the Senate’s secure location, one senior officer ordered a set of underlings to go secure Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), a double amputee who lost both legs while serving in the Iraq War. She was hiding in her office three floors above, fearful of letting anyone in. The senior officer gave specific instructions of what to yell: “Senator Duckworth, Senator Klobuchar said come to the door.”
On the floor, Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), a former combat Marine, was holding up his escape hood and explaining to other members how to use it. There were about 150 lawmakers down there, and Gallego was shouting to get their attention.
“Open the first package!” he yelled.
“Then open the second!”
“The hood then inflates over your head!”
Will they do it?! No, they won’t The House barely had the 2/3 on the Pennsylvania objection refusal and good luck finding anyone in the Cabinet with a spine, let alone 11 of them. However, some resignations were on the way:
WH resignations growing. They include:
-Stephanie Grisham, First Lady’s chief of staff
-Rickie Niceta, WH Social Secretary
-Sara Matthews, WH Deputy Press Secretary
Others reportedly considering resigning:
-Robert O’Brien, National Security Adviser
-Matt Pottinger, deputy NSA

Mick Mulvaney, a real hero, is gone with these parting words:
“I called Mike Pompeo last night to let him know I was resigning from that. I can’t do it. I can’t stay,” Mulvaney said in the interview.
He added: “Those who choose to stay, and I have talked with some of them, are choosing to stay because they’re worried the President might put someone worse in.”
Because survival is insufficient
Let’s start 2021 the right way!
