Last Friday The Horn News reported that President Donald Trump ally — freshman Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Al. — was promising something major ahead of the January 6 Electoral College vote.
It seemed the ex-Auburn University football coach had a trick up his sleeve to stop what would be a congressional vote confirming the election results.

“You see what’s coming,” he told an undercover liberal activist. “You’ve been reading about it in the House. We’re going to have to do it in the Senate.”
However, Tuberville appeared to back off that promise over the weekend.
In an interview with Yellowhammer News, Tuberville says he was taken “out of context” concerning his alleged remarks about pledging an election fight on the Senate floor.
The former head coach said he has yet to make a play call.
“I want to do what’s best for President Trump and the people of Alabama and the people of this country,” Tuberville said. “I’m always going to support President Trump. He’s the best president of my lifetime and has done more for the people of this country and the state of Alabama than anybody. But we want to make sure we do the right thing.”[Sponsored] This Food Grows Cancerous Tumors – Do Not Eat It
“… I’m going to start doing my due diligence,” Tuberville noted. “It’s not like you have to make your mind up in the next 24 hours. I’ll probably meet with Mo Brooks and get his side of it.”
His fellow Alabama Sen. Mo Brooks has already vowed to object on behalf of Trump in Congress when the vote is scheduled to be certified.
For now, Tuberville insists that he’s considering all the information and evidence relevant to Trump’s claims before deciding anything.
“I’m going to get all of the information before doing so,” he stated. “I haven’t done any background work yet. I want to know all about it first.”
“… Mine [decision] will be an answer for the people of our state and country, not for any media people out there. We’re going to do what’s right.”
Tuberville, like other establishment Republican allies of the White House, are attempting to tow the line between their loyalties to the President and the Republican Party. It’s a sophisticated tightrope walk that many conservatives are hoping does not escalate into a Republican civil war.

On the heels of the initial reports, Trump revealed that he spoke with Tuberville over the weekend and made it a point to call him a “great gentleman.”
It remains yet to be seen what the President may have to say after hearing Tuberville has changed his message.
