President Donald Trump along with some Republican lawmakers held a conference call over the weekend to openly discuss moves raised in the House to reject the upcoming vote to certify the Electoral College vote on January 6.

Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks said aside from President Trump, 50 lawmakers including Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows were on the call Saturday night and his goal to overturn the results of the election is “gaining momentum.”

“Our fight for honest & accurate elections gains momentum! @Jim_Jordan & I co-lead conference call with 50+ congressmen who join & fight for America’s Republic!” the lawmaker who is among the very first to publicly announce he will challenge the election results said.

“Conf[erence] call began at 6PM ET. Now 7:15PM & continuing. President Trump & CoS Mark Meadows speaking,” he added, noting that “Morale is HIGH! FIGHT!”

While not naming the other lawmakers present in the call, the Alabama lawmaker noted that the members on the call are only “some” of the many members of Congress who have vowed to object to the election results which favored Democrat Joe Biden amid reports of widespread voter fraud nationwide.

“The momentum to fight against voter fraud and election theft is rapidly gaining,” Brooks told Fox News on Sunday. “As a consequence, the numbers that we had who were supportive yesterday are almost always supplemented by reinforcements today and the next day.”

He further said although it “remains to be seen” whether they will gain a simple majority in the Democrat-led House for the objection to move forward, he is “confident there will be many, many more congressmen” to back calls to object to the certification of votes in “certain states.”

“In my judgment, the primary reason so many congressmen and senators are now coming forward to fight this fight is because so many American citizens have made it known that this fight is critical to America’s future,” the Alabama lawmaker added.

In a separate tweet, he echoed this sentiment after at least a dozen of Senators announced  that they will also object to the January 6 vote to certify the Electoral College results formalizing the victory of Biden.

@SenTedCruz & TEN Senators join fight against voter fraud, illegal ballots & election theft!,” Brooks said.

“Momentum to protect honesty & accuracy of America’s elections is gaining steam as more & more elected officials fully grasp the depravity of election theft.”

Earlier, Brooks argued that cases filed to challenge the election “are not being dismissed because of a lack of evidence, they are being aborted before the trial process was even birthed.”

President Trump has slammed Republican lawmakers who have accepted the Biden-Harris victory, and called them “weak and tired” while he praised GOP lawmakers who have come forward to challenge the Electoral College votes.

Senator Ted Cruz, along with a group of 10 other senators have joined their colleague, Senator Josh Hawley in publicly announcing that they will object to the Electoral College vote results as they demanded over the weekend that Congress establish an electoral commission to conduct an emergency audit on the election results.

Some estimates said at least 140 House Republicans are expected to vote against the electoral votes.

Both the House and Senate, however, would require a majority in both chambers for the objection to move forward.
