Before Hearing on Election Irregularities in the 2020 Election
Senator Ron Johnson(R-Wisconsin), Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs, said in a statement upon announcing the hearing.
“I am mindful that many of the issues that have been raised have been, and will continue to be, appropriately resolved in the courts,”
“But the fact remains that a large percentage of the American public does not view the 2020 election result as legitimate because of apparent irregularities that have not been fully examined,” Johnson continued. “That is not a sustainable state of affairs for our country.”
He added: “The only way to resolve suspicions is with full transparency and public awareness. That will be the goal of the hearing.”
A webpage for the hearing on Dec.15 listed six witnesses.
But the page was later amended to remove Francis Ryan and Chris Krebs from the list of witnesses.
Explosive Hearing on Election Irregularities in the 2020 Election
Republicans and Democrats clash over 2020 Election Security.
Senator Ron Johnson says at the hearing:
Media Suppression can, and does, affect the outcome of an election.
Many of the irregularities found during the election need to be taken seriously.
Lax enforcement, denying effective bipartisan observation of the complete election process, and failure to be fully transparent has led to heightened suspicion.
Ken Starr says at the hearing:
Assuring honesty and integrity is a compellingly important government interest.
Pennsylvania flagrantly violated laws ahead of election.
Jesse Binnall delivers an opening statement:
On evidence of election fraud in Nevada before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
