On Friday, a joint session of Congress will convene to confirm Donald Trump as the presidential election winner.
During her weekly press briefing, Nancy Pelosi was asked if she thought that a senator would file an objection to the vote, which would open up a floor debate.
According to federal law, “if at least one senator and one House member object to the vote from any state, the House and Senate would meet separately to decide the merits of the objection.”
Some House Democrats have talked about filing an objection. No senator has yet publicly backed the idea.
“I don’t know who will show up and object, but probably somebody will,” Pelosi told the reporter.
