Tempers flared in Congress early Thursday morning as Republicans continued to deny the fact that President-elect Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election.

As Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA) attempted do defend his state as Republicans sought to disenfranchise the Pennsylvania's voters, a scuffle almost broke out on the floor.

CNN's Kristin Wilson reported on the scene.


The objection was over the question of whether Republicans lie.

Gizmodo's Dell Cameron didn't think it would be much of a fight.
