It is over.
Several House Democrats tried to raise objections as a joint session of Congress met to formally count the Electoral College results certifying Donald Trump's presidential election.
Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) cited Russia's interference in the election as he raised the first Democratic objection to Trump's Electoral College victory.
Vice President Biden, who was presiding over the proceedings, ruled McGovern's objection out of order because it wasn't backed by a senator.
Despite more attempts to stop the certification,
the process went swiftly and was over in under an hour, the final step in making Trump's White House win official.
So hopefully that will be the end of these reports and hearings about Russia“hacking” the election. See also here.
