MARK LEVIN (HOST):  Now, I want to talk to the Republicans, particularly in the United States Senate but also in the House.

Any Republican who doesn't stand up to this on January 6th -- win, lose or draw. It's the principal, it's the issue. The American people need to understand you're serious about defending the Constitution -- you are shredding the Constitution along with all those Democrats and the Democrat Party who put the nation in this position. Do you understand me, Mitch McConnell? John Thune? John Cornyn? The Republican leadership in the Senate has been utterly pathetic. We're not taking any election from anybody. They destroyed the election laws and they're are destroying the Constitution and you have taken an oath to uphold it. You need to protect that Constitution and you need to protect the American people and you need to stare down the left-wing media in this country and you need to stare down the people in that chamber who have done this to us. That's what you're required to do as far as I am concerned. And in the House, you need to not listen to people like Adam Kinzinger and others and who put out YouTube videos about how righteous they are. Or Ben Sasse, even worse. These people do not understand the Constitution and are not defending it or supporting the Constitution.

Now, we have a chance in this country. It's left to Congress. Despite what the media said on election night, their announcements didn't choose the president. Despite what the media said when electors were chosen by the states, that doesn't choose the president. What happens in terms of choosing the president is on January 6th when both chambers of Congress meet jointly and determine which electors to count and which ones matter. I understand it's a high hurdle, I understand that Congress has passed a statute - long time ago in the 1800s where it's a big hurdle for Republicans to get over because they don't control House and God forbid I hope they do control the Senate. But that doesn't mean you don't fight for the Constitution, and the country, and for a President of the United States who, in my view, was reelected - otherwise why would these Democrats do all the things that they have done? It was a strategic attack on the American people, the Constitution, and our electoral system. It's time for everybody to stand up and be heard.
