RESOLUTION
Censuring and condemning President Donald J. Trump for attempting to overturn the results of the November 2020 presidential election in the State of Georgia.

Whereas, on January 2, 2021, President Donald J. Trump called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger;

Whereas during that call President Trump repeatedly asked Secretary Raffensperger to overturn the finalized and verified results of the November 2020 presidential election in the State of Georgia;

Whereas President Trump misused the power of his office by threatening an elected official with vague criminal consequences if he failed to pursue the president’s false claims;

Whereas President Trump’s actions and statements on this call demonstrate an attempt to willfully deprive the citizens of Georgia of a fair and impartial election process in direct contravention of both Federal law and the laws of the State of Georgia;

Whereas President Trump has repeatedly propagated baseless conspiracy theories in statements and on social media, falsely claimed that he won the November 3, 2020, presidential election, and attempted to incite his supporters to undermine our constitutional principles; and

Whereas, as a result of President Trump’s words and actions, the lawful results of free and fair elections in the United States have been put in danger: Now, therefore, be it

That the House of Representatives—
(1)

publicly states its support for the finalized and verified vote totals in the November 2020 presidential election in the State of Georgia, which recognize Joseph R. Biden as the President-elect and Kamala D. Harris as Vice President-elect of the United States;

(2)

censures and condemns President Donald J. Trump for his call to the Georgia Secretary of State on January 2, 2021, during which he asked Secretary Raffensperger to overturn the results of a freely and fairly administered election in the State of Georgia, thereby compromising the very foundation of our Constitution; and

(3)
calls on President Trump to retract and disavow this unlawful and unconstitutional behavior and acknowledge President-elect Joseph R. Biden as the victor of the November 2020 presidential election.
