The confirmation of the presidential election result in Congress is traditionally a rubber stamp exercise, but Donald Trump has portrayed it as an opportunity to stop an election he baselessly claims is fraudulent.
With Trump encouraging demonstrations on the streets of Washington, and pressing vice-president Mike Pence to use his ceremonial role to prevent the confirmation of Biden as president, this year’s Congressional confirmation is anything but perfunctory. Unusually, a handful of Republican politicians are set to object to the ratification of the presidential election result.
We’d like to hear from people in the US, including both Democrats and Republicans, about their response to today’s events in Congress.
