Michigan and Georgia objections have been withdrawn. Democrat Joe Biden received 16 electoral votes from each state, reports Jan.6 CNN.
“After today’s events, it seems that some senators have dropped their objections,” said one Georgia senator.
In addition, the congressmen approved the results of the voting in Nevada, where six electors cast their votes for Biden. After the riots in Washington, they also dropped objections.
Earlier, the US Senate did not accept objections to the approval of electoral votes from the state of Arizona.
The meeting of the US Congress resumed on Wednesday evening after the storming of the Capitol by supporters of the current US President Donald Trump.
The police were forced to use tear gas to disperse the protesters. The sounds of gunfire were heard in the building. Four people died, including US Air Force veteran Ashley Babbitt.
In this regard, the mayor’s office of Washington imposed a curfew in the city until the morning of January 7, and the Pentagon allowed the National Guard to be involved in settling the unrest.
Special forces entered the building of the US Congress, and all the protesters were withdrawn from there.
