EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM) – Trump supporters protested the Electoral College vote count at the Humboldt county court house this afternoon.
About one hundred people showed up carrying flags and holding signs.
Michael Wells says, “This country is in a crisis and I think we need to support what’s right and I think we need to stand up for the values this country was built upon.”
Many of these protesters believe the Electoral College results have been rigged.
Judy Herman says, “The error in vote tabulations and procedures…illegal use by people who are not state legislatures to act against the law.”
But those claims have been proven to be false.
Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell says, “If this election were overturned by mere allegations from the losing side, our democracy would enter a death spiral.”
Meanwhile, in Capitol Hill, thousands of protesters stormed their way into congress. This led to a lock down and prevented lawmakers from counting the Electoral College vote.
President Donald Trump has tweeted for his supporters to go home, in a statement saying, “This was a fraudulent election but we can’t play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace.”
Members of congress say the electoral vote count will go on later tonight.
