(FreedomJournal.org)- People attending the “Stop the Steal” protest in Washington, D.C., on January 6 will be greeted by the president himself as well as other prominent speakers.
President Donald Trump will speak at the rally, which will be held before Republicans in Congress put up a fight to contest the results of the Electoral College vote.
Supporters of the president plan to gather in the nation’s capital for the rally, which was arranged by some members of the Trump team. The official host of the rally is the organization Women for America First.
The event will culminate on the White House Ellipsis, which is called “the President’s Lawn,” informally. Last week, Trump confirmed via Twitter that he will be attending the event himself.
Around 11 a.m., Trump is expected to give remarks at the event. Other expected speakers, according to Breitbart, include Kimberly Guilfoyle, Rudy Giuliani, Boris Ephsteyn, Donald Trump Jr., Amy Kremer, Ken Paxton (the attorney general of Texas), Vernon Jones (a state representative in Georgia), Mike Lindell (the CEO of MyPillow), Benny Johnson, Roger Stone, Bernie Kerik, Ali Alexander and Scott Pressler.
A handful of those speakers will also speak at an event being held the day before at the Freedom Plaza. The main event will be at the White House Ellipsis, where doors will open at 7 a.m. Wednesday.
People who want to attend the event are being asked to register online at MarchtoSaveAmerica.com. While there isn’t a requirement to have a ticket or register, people are being encouraged to do so.
The program is expected to begin at roughly 9 a.m., with Trump capping the event around 11 a.m.
Following Trump’s remarks, the organizers of the protest will lead a march to the Capitol building. When they arrive around 1 p.m., which is roughly when the newly-sworn-in Congress will be considering certifying the results of the Electoral College.
Thus far, there are expected to be more than 100 Republicans in the House of Representatives who are expected to challenge the results. They will reportedly be joined by at least 12 Republicans in the Senate. The senators include Josh Hawley of Missouri as well as Ted Cruz of Texas.
While challenges to the results of the Electoral College have happened before, none have been of this magnitude. Some Democrats in the House tried to challenge the results in 2017 following Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton. They didn’t get any senators to hop on board, though, and so the effort failed.
Even still, the effort is expected to ultimately fail. In order for the results to be challenged, a majority vote would need to carry in the House. Democrats still have control of the House, even though their lead shrunk considerably following the 2020 elections.
Some Republicans in the House said they won’t vote for challenging certification, either, as have some prominent Republican senators including Mitt Romney of Utah, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Ben Sasse of Nebraska.
This means that, ultimately, despite the efforts of the rally and some Republican members of Congress, Trump’s last-ditch effort to overturn the election results will probably fall short.
