From fake electors to using Sen. Ron Johnson as a way to plant fraudulent ballots, Wisconsin will remain a focus as the congressional committee resumes its case Tuesday to show who knew about the insurrection plans.
The Republican senator has changed his story about his level of involvement in former President Donald Trump’s plot to stuff the electoral ballot box and hijack the 2020 presidential election.
The US House Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Insurrection outlined how fake electors weren’t there “just in case.” They were part of the plan to create the case to overturn the 2020 election.
The third public hearing, which took place Thursday, focused on efforts by former President Donald Trump and his allies to pressure Vice President Mike Pence into overturning the election.
Days before, the former Wisconsin congressman and House Speaker publicly warned that self-governance is about the will of the people and not the whims of Congress.
The Republican congressman also defended his votes against measures to prevent mass shootings in schools.
The hearings by a special congressional committee should be treated as a warning—complacency only helps those who want to tear down our democracy.
