The 12th Amendment is very clear about what should happen during the counting of the electoral votes. The Senate President opens the ballots and counts the electoral votes, With Congress as a witness. There is no provision that allows Congress to reject or refuse to have any of the votes counted (unless electors were chosen by a person or people that are not the state legislatures). Even if there there was fraud, It should be handled by the state legislatures or the courts. The arguments of the courts not liking to get involved in contested elections or governors not convening legislatures to handle tainted electoral votes is something that we can debate at a different time.
