“At the end of the day, Joe Biden will be the president on January 20th at noon, so nothing is going to happen on the 6th that is going to change that,” notes Paul Rosenzweig, a senior fellow at the R-Street Institute. “In a lot of ways what we’re going to see is just a lot of political theater, a lot of pontification, so they’re just really playing to the crowds, playing to the base.”
Rosenzweig, who served as a senior counsel to Ken Starr during the investigations of President Bill Clinton, points out that while all it takes is a single House Member and a single Senator to force a vote, Republicans do not have the votes in either chamber to override the certified election results. He also notes that each state only submitted one official slate of electors; there is no dispute.
“Even though this is just theater and the result is not going to be in doubt, this is still going to be very destructive and very demeaning to democracy because in the end this is intended to be by law a ministerial act,” says Rosenzweig.
