Morning Greatness: Senator RonJon to Hold Election Irregularities Hearing Today

Good Wednesday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president holds a Cabinet Meeting

 

Two minutes of hate:

Today, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs will hold a hearing, “Examining Election Irregularities in the 2020 Election.” (Here is a link to C-SPAN.) The Committee is chaired by Senator Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican. As I’m sure you know, Wisconsin is one of the states where serious fraud allegations have been alleged so RonJon is doing his job and holding a hearing to air out the fraud and corruption. Ken Starr will be testifying as will Trump lawyers James R. Troupis and Jessie R. Binnall. Pennsylvania State Representative Francis X. Ryan is on the panel along with Commissioner Donald Palmer of the Election Assistance Commission. We can also look forward to Former Director (2018-2020) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Chris Krebs.

Perhaps you remember the fired Krebs when he was belching out claims that the 2020 election was the most secure election ever in the history of the world. “The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes or changed votes or was in any way compromised.” Really? What is remarkable about this statement is that it was made without examining any equipment, records or reading sworn statements from observers and participants. Krebs must have magical powers to make such categorical statements. The Cathedral is obsessed with Krebs as CNN, ABC, and Politico have manufactured shiny puff pieces on him in preparation for the narrative they are going to advertise to you once the hearing his over. Politico wins a Scooby snack with a hit piece on RonJohn. Politico writes, Senator Johnson is “linking himself to President Donald Trump’s election challenge” or put in a better way, he is linking himself to the voters who are furious that their election was a hot mess.

It’s a risky political gamble for Johnson, who is betting that his embrace of Trump through his prior probes and his upcoming election hearing will energize the president’s base, which remains strong in Wisconsin despite Democratic wins statewide in 2018 and 2020. Still, Johnson’s decision to hold Wednesday’s hearing is drawing bipartisan ire as Trump’s allegations of voter fraud continue to crumble in federal court. It also comes two days after the Electoral College sealed Biden’s victory.

Is it a risky political gamble? Johnson doesn’t represent the snots writing copy for the anti-Trump advertisement published in Politico, he represents the people of Wisconsin. They are angry about their election and the fact that Politico wants to turn this into a Trump issue shows how divorced they are from the concerns of regular people. The election “irregularities” are not about Trump, they are about people who want to trust their voting process, a process they use to make their interests known to their representatives.

“So now you’ve got President Trump’s supporters seeing some real problems. There are some irregularities here that need to be explained,” said Johnson. “These issues have to be highlighted and hopefully corrected so that, in the next election, people have, just going into it, greater assurances.”

One has to wonder, why on earth would there be a controversy about examining election integrity? At the very least it looks like media advertorials such as Politico are supporting a coverup and at worse, endorsing the fraud.

Back to the Democrats’ star witness Krebs, this guy was head of the Homeland’s cybersecurity and we had a massive, serious hack across multiple government computer systems when he was on duty. “This is probably going to be one of the most consequential cyberattacks in U.S. history,” one U.S. official said, after the National Security Council held its second meeting in three days about the attacks, which security experts have linked to Russian intelligence. “That’s the view from inside government — that we’re dealing with something of a scale that I don’t think we’ve had to deal with before.”

So how capable and competent is Krebs? Not very, it seems.
