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.

Last surviving WW2 Medal of Honor recipient Woody Williams dies at 98
On this Fourth of July we honor the last surviving Medal of Honor recipient from World War II. Marine veteran Hershel “Woody” Williams died Wednesday at 3:15 a.m. and was 98 years old. Williams died at the Huntington, West Virginia, Veterans Affairs hospital named after him, according to a statement from his foundation.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announced Sunday that Williams will lie in honor at the U.S. Capitol.
The Marine Corps Times writes about the honorable veteran and his Medal:
Born in 1923 on a dairy farm in Quiet Dell, West Virginia, Williams was the youngest of 11 children, according to the Weirton, West Virginia, Daily Times.
Initially disqualified for being too short, Williams enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1943, according to his biography. The demolition sergeant landed on Iwo Jima on Feb. 21, 1945, with 1st Battalion, 21st Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division.
Two days later, on Feb. 23, 1945, he famously destroyed enemy emplacements with a flamethrower, going forward alone into machinegun fire, covered only by four riflemen.
His citation states, “he fought desperately for 4 hours under terrific enemy small-arms fire and repeatedly returned to his own lines to prepare demolition charges and obtain serviced flamethrowers,” before wiping out one enemy position after another.
On one occasion, he “daringly mounted a pillbox to insert the nozzle of his flamethrower through the air vent,” which killed all enemy occupants and silenced its gun.
Williams received the Medal of Honor from President Harry S. Truman at the White House in October 1945 for “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty.”
God Bless Woody Williams and his family.
America is great because of heroes like him. https://t.co/QxAFMWDMYH
