As the Trump campaign continues to fight legal challenges in several battleground states, republicans in the House of Representatives are demanding an immediate congressional investigation into the 2020 election

Top republicans on the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees urged democrat leaders to hold  hearings “to examine the integrity of the 2020 election amid troubling reports of irregularities and improprieties.” 

House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan of Ohio and House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer of Kentucky fired off a letter Wednesday to Committee Chairs Jerrold Nadler and Carolyn Maloney of New York, urging them to take action. 

“Given your role as leaders of a political party that spent four years baselessly calling into question the legitimacy of the 2016 election with debunked allegations of Russian collusion, you owe it to all Americans to fully examine allegations of actual election errors and misconduct,” they wrote. 

They also reminded democrats about a report, released in September, which detailed the “dangerous initiatives” being implemented through last-minute changes to state election laws and procedures. 

“We warned that these dangerous initiatives would increase the risk of election-related crimes and errors, undermine the integrity of the electoral process, and cause lingering uncertainty about the results of the election for several days or weeks after Election Day,” they stated. 

“Democrats ignored this report, but many of our predications have unfortunately come true,” they continued. 

The report also urged that “because Democrats refused to clean up outdated and inaccurate voter registration rolls, a last-minute move to widespread mail-in voting in some states would have unintended consequences.” 

“These serious concerns give rise to the urgent need for congressional oversight of the integrity of the 2020 election,” they wrote. “Our committees must conduct oversight hearings to ensure that Americans have faith in the integrity of our election,” they added. 

“The democrats have been four years investigating the fake Russia hoax, why can’t we spend four weeks trying to get to the bottom of this election?” Jordan asked in an interview with Newsmax. “Let’s let the process work. Let’s get to the bottom of it…maybe we should just do the audit, let the court cases work and figure out exactly what happened.” 

 Though the media elected Joe Biden, the results in some states are still in limbo as the Trump campaign continues to revise lawsuits.

Obtained Emails on Election Night Heighten Georgia’s Mysterious Ballot-Counting

Georgia Voting

Just the News has obtained internal emails from election workers in Georgia’s Fulton County has increased confusion and mystery regarding the November presidential elections. As a reminder, Just the News writes, “Uncertainty arose regarding the ballot processing operation at Fulton County’s State Farm Arena on and after Election Night, when ballot-scanning apparently continued even after most election workers had reportedly been sent home.”

Affidavits from Election Night poll workers state they were directed by officials to stop working around 10:30 pm on November 3rd, and return at 8:30 am the next day. Multiple local and national media outlets reported absentee ballot counting stopped around 10:30 pm and cited county spokeswoman Regina Waller.

In truth, counting at the State Farm Arena continued past 10:30 pm. Waller herself told JTN in December that contrary to media reports, many citing her, that she had “stated to all media…that although several workers were released to go home, a small team remained behind to assist with scanning ballots.”

Through an open records request, JTN obtained a few suspect emails, in which Waller does in fact state counting ended at around 10:30 pm. The email, timestamped at 10:22 pm on Nov. 3, addressed to several county officials as well as State Farm Arena spokesman Garin Narain stated, “the workers in the Absentee Ballot Processing area will get started again at 8 am tomorrow.”

When reached for comment via email, Waller only stated the email “was in response to a question received asking when all workers would return” but did not respond to a request to see the original email to which she was responding. So then why did she keep a “small” team behind?

Another email from Fulton County Interagency Affairs Manager Fran Phillips-Calhoun timestamped at 11:15 pm that same night, almost an hour after Waller said counting stopped, Phillips-Calhoun’s email may suggest otherwise. “FYI-[the Secretary of State’s office] just sort of threw the team under the bus stating that ‘we had a great day, but we decided to throw in the towel for the night even though the public is waiting…’ on the results.”

Phillips-Calhoun’s email was sent to Waller and several other county staffers. Phillips-Calhoun did not respond to requests for comment, nor did the message specify which statement from the Secretary of State’s office she was referring to.

A super PAC that heavily supported President Trump during the 2020 presidential campaign is changing its direction to focus on the new administration. 

The Committee to Defend the President officially rebranded itself on Wednesday as Joe Biden takes office. Its mission is now aimed at taking down the incoming democrat

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President. 

During the 2020 campaign cycle, the PAC reportedly raised more than $16 million to support Trump and his “America First policy agenda, BizPacReview reports. The group will now focus on “undermining” Biden’s agenda. 

“NEW NAME. SAME MISSION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT & STOP JOE’s Corruption…Socialist Agenda…Liberalism,” the website says. 

The committee told Fox News it plans to match its 2020 fundraising during the 2022 election cycle, and pledges a seven-figure investment “to expose the Biden-Harris administration and other Democrats for their left-wing politics.” 

The group will push new ads, opposition research, social media engagement, and “other innovative tactics.” 

The PAC’s “new mission is to save Americans from the radical, dangerous policies of the Biden-Harris administration,” Ted Harvey, the group’s chairman, said. 

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will work around the clock to reverse the unprecedented progress of the Trump presidency,” Harvey added. 

“From day one, we simply cannot let that happen. It is our patriotic duty to work around the clock and stop them – before the damage done to America becomes irreversible,” he said. 

But, this isn’t the first time the PAC has switched gears. 

Founded in 2013, it was originally called the Stop Hillary Pac, according to BizPacReview.
