Biggs Demands that AG Barr release findings of DOJ election fraud probe

Arizona Republican Rep. Andy Biggs demanded Friday that Justice Department Attorney General William Barr release the current findings of “his election fraud investigation.”

Biggs, who spoke at a press conference outside on Capitol Hill, said on Twitter that it “is imperative that the American people receive clarity as to the allegations and claims that have been raised about the 2020 election.”

“This election took place almost exactly one-month ago,” said Biggs, who is the Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus. “And when this election was concluded at least on that November 3 day, and there began to be questions about the integrity of that election – there were a number of us that did call the Department of Justice to begin looking investigating and going through the claims that were arising and going forward throughout this country.”

He added that “as votes were bing counted post Election Day complaints continued and we urged the Attorney General to investigate, to make sure that we can rely on the integrity of the election. In a republic there is nothing more detrimental than to not be able to trust your institutions created by those who have the ultimate power.”

“We don’t have any power as members of Congress. It is the people of this country from which our authority is derived because they delegate it to us,” Biggs added.

Last week, Barr disclosed to The Associated Press that thus far his “we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

President Donald Trump’s lawyers, Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis,¬†shot back at Barr in a statement saying, “with all due respect to the Attorney General, there hasn’t been a semblance of a Department of Justice investigation,” they said. “We have gathered ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states, which they have not examined.”

Let’s see what the DOJ has investigated. So far, with the Russia investigation into the FBI’s malfeasance and now with the election fraud probe it appears to be all talk and no action.Maybe it’s just gaslighting because we haven’t seen anything yet.

I agree with Biggs it’s the American people who must demand that the Justice Department do its job and present us with the facts. After all, we pay their salaries.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal

In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.

Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.

Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.

Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.

Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.

Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
