The behavior of these House Republicans is un-American. The United States now has a two-party political system where one of the parties is freely opposed to and attempting to damage democracy.
The House Republicans are more worried about a main challenge in 2022 from among Trumps minions than securing the stability of United States elections. The election objection gambit will fail spectacularly, however the point isnt to overturn the election and keep Trump in power.
Home Republicans have totally convinced themselves that the man behind the curtain is the effective Trump, not a small failed one-term president whose power will vanish as quickly as he no longer has the tools and the platform of the highest office in the land.
Congressional Republicans arent going to all of a sudden act themselves and see the light after Trump is gone. When the same seriousness that voters showed when they chose Joe Biden, republican politicians will stay a threat to democracy that should be defeat.
