As tempers begin to flare on both sides of the political aisle in advance of next Wednesday’s congressional joint session to count the electoral votes, Keith Olbermann has called for a political war with any member of Congress who supports President Donald Trump by challenging the Electoral College vote that has Joe Biden beating Trump 306 – 232.
Specifically, Olbermann – along with many others on the political left – calls for Congress members to be banned from the new Congress that will be sworn in on Sunday, January 3rd, and to be prosecuted for sedition. Under U.S. law, sedition is the act of inciting revolt or violence against a lawful authority with the goal of destroying or overthrowing it and is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Do you believe that Congress members who object to the Electoral College vote that has Joe Biden the winner of the presidential election should be prosecuted for attempting to overthrow the United States government?
140 GOP Congressmen want political war against the Constitution? GIVE IT TO THEM.
CNN reports they want to prove fealty to Trump by stunt-objecting to Biden’s win next Wednesday? DO NOT admit them to the new Congress; prosecute them for sedition.
