Congressman Thompson (D) on removing Trump from White House
Mississippi 2nd District Congressman Bennie Thompson was on MSNBC’s AM Joy this weekend where, among other items, he talked about the potential for removing Donald Trump from the White House, continuing an unsubstantiated narrative from the left against the President. Thompson tweeted the comments below.
Rep. @BennieGThompson: The Constitution is clear. The Secret Service guards the White House and the sitting president. If the sitting president is #JoeBiden then #Trump is a trespasser. So he has to be removed… At the end of the day the Secret Service will do their job. #AMJoy pic.twitter.com/1l0aZHI5bQ

Thompson talks revamping Homeland Security
With less than two months remaining in the 116th Congress, the Senate is working to complete several important priorities for Mississippi and the nation. These include an annual military authorization bill and funding for the federal government. We are continuing to confirm Trump-nominated judges to lifetime appointments on the federal bench. And the Commerce Committee, which I chair, is finalizing several important bills that I hope will be considered by the full Senate before January…
…Congress will also need to fund the federal government into the new year. Government funding is set to expire on December 11, and I hope congressional leaders can reach a long-term agreement. In the future, Congress needs to get back to the practice of passing individual appropriations bills on time. Threats of government shutdowns, short-term bills to continue funding at current levels, and massive last-minute agreements have become the norm in recent years. Getting back to regular order would result in smarter policies, benefit our national security, and protect taxpayers.

Congressman Steven Palazzo is under investigation for allegedly misusing nearly $200,000 in campaign funds. However, Palazzo’s campaign vows the 4th District Congressman will be vindicated of all allegations.
Palazzo has been cooperating with a Congressional Ethics investigation since early this year, according to campaign spokesman Justin Brasell.
The ‘Palazzo for Congress’ campaign has provided documents and information to investigators to refute what Brasell called “baseless allegations.” In March, the Campaign Legal Center, a Washington, D.C. watchdog group, filed a complaint against Palazzo questioning spending and alleging he used campaign contributions as a “personal slush fund.”
The Campaign Legal Center pointed to $60,000 Palazzo’s campaign paid to rent the congressman’s own property in Perkinston and paying nearly $127,933 to his then-wife’s accounting firm.

SOS Watson tweets on process for certifying Presidential election
Presidential Electors then meet and vote on December 14, and we file those votes with the Federal Archivist.
Though there are some differences from state to state, this should give you a good idea of the process in general.
Hope this helps!
