Emmer will attend Joe Biden's presidential inauguration -- but still won't call him president-Elect

(snip)

But in a panel discussion with Democratic U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Emmer rebuffed multiple attempts by moderator and CBS correspondent Major Garrett to refer to Biden as president-elect. Emmer instead said that Jan. 6, the date Congress will officially count the Electoral College's votes, marked the end of the line.

"There is a process in place," Emmer said. "For me, you've got to allow the process to go through."

Emmer's stance is a dramatic pivot from how he responded to Trump's 2016 victory, when he publicly congratulated and referred to Trump as president-elect the day after the election.

Emmer said he would attend Biden's inauguration, adding that "we respect the office and this is what this country is built on."

Last week, Emmer and fellow Republican congressmen Pete Stauber and Jim Hagedorn publicly backed a GOP bid to overturn the presidential election that the Supreme Court swiftly dismissed.

Emmer's remarks on Thursday were his first on the matter. Stauber, Hagedorn and Michelle Fischbach, who is soon to join the delegation after defeating longtime Democratic congressman Collin Peterson last month, also have yet to call Biden the president-elect.

2. Why should these four traitors be invited?

Biden says the inauguration should be a small time thing due to Covid, make sure their invites get lost in Louis DeJoys postal system.
