“Efforts to reject the votes of the Electoral College and sow doubt about Joe Biden’s victory strike at the foundation of our republic,” Ryan goes on to say.
Ryan also suggests that the challenge of the vote in Congress will fail, but will still do “significant damage to American democracy.”
“Joe Biden’s victory is entirely legitimate,” Ryan said to end his press release.
There are expected to be at least 100 House Republicans that object to certifying the election results, according to CBS News.
