White House press secretary Jen Psaki gave the administration the go-ahead to House Democrats in their attempt to override state-certified elections in Iowa’s second congressional district.
A reporter asked Psaki if President Biden agrees with a recent letter from Republican senators saying that the attempt by Democrats to take the seat of Republican Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks and replace her with Democrat Rita Hart was a “Unacceptable attempt to undermine a legitimate democracy.” process.”
Biden’s press secretary responded by giving the green light to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democrat of California, and company to overturn the result and declare Hart the winner.
“I think the process that is outlined by the House of Representatives is what is being followed here to ensure that every vote is counted,” Psaki said. “So no, he wouldn’t agree with that.”

Republicans have spoken out against the Democratic attempt to take the Miller-Meeks seat.
The Iowa congresswoman defeated Hart in the election with a minimal victory of six votes in a contest that is still contested, despite the fact that Iowa officially certified the election results and Miller-Meeks was provisionally sworn in as a member of Congress.
Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, mentioned that Hart went directly to the House Administration Committee to challenge the election rather than the Iowa courts during a “Fox & Friends Weekend” interview.
“Representative Miller-Meeks has sat in Congress. She won this election,” Ernst said. “It was certified by Iowans … and now Nancy Pelosi, maybe, will revoke it.”
“And that is terribly unfair to the voters of Iowa’s second district, and we are backtracking,” Ernst added.
Pelosi had previously told reporters that there was “of course” a situation where she saw her party stealing Miller-Meeks’ seat.

Miller-Meeks criticized the Democratic Party’s ploy to strip him of his House seat in a “Special Report” interview earlier this month.
She defended her state-certified victory during the interview, saying that people across the country should be “outraged” by the attempt to nullify her victory.
“Everybody across the country should be outraged by this,” Miller-Meeks said. “I have certainly been encouraged by people across the country who have reached out to me and told me that they are reaching out to their representatives to let them know their displeasure.”
