Calvert was among more than 100 members of the GOP House of Representatives who signed an amicus brief in December 2020 asking the Supreme Court to overturn election results in four swing states won by Biden.
The next month, after insurgents were cleared of the Capitol on January 6 and the House and Senate reconvened to debate certification of votes, Calvert voted against certification of election results in Pennsylvania and Arizona. He said while he has concerns about the electoral process in both states, he believes Biden was legitimately elected president.
“I have consistently condemned the January 6 violence and all forms of politically motivated violence. My Electoral College certification votes reflected concerns I had about the application of electoral laws in two states. Those states wouldn’t have changed the election result,” he told the Times.
Rollins said, “The conspiracy theorists who facilitated the attack on our Capitol don’t deserve to work in that building, period.”
He said that at the Justice Department he “fought against opponents – domestic and foreign – who tried to influence our political system. I’ve also fought corruption and the insurgents who … supported efforts to overthrow the last election,” he told the Times. “I stand with the brave men and women who risk their lives to protect our Capitol, and I stand for democracy, the rule of law, and the peaceful transfer of power.”
