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.

Health Industry Distributors’ Association: Supply Chain Delays ‘A Healthcare Issue’
The Health Industry Distributors’ Association (HIDA) released harrowing data stating “Transportation Delays Are A Healthcare Issue.” HIDA’s December release states, “research estimates that approximately 8,000-12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are delayed an average of up to 37 days throughout the transportation system.”
The statement continues, “The West Coast port with the greatest number of delayed medical containers are the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The most congested East Coast port is the Port of Savannah.”
An infographic is accompanied with the statement which breaks down the crisis further. 17 is the average number of days the shipments are delayed at the Port. There’s an 11 day average delay by rail, and a 9 day average delay by truck.
In those shipping containers, the infographic states 187,000 gowns, 360,000 syringes and 3.5 million surgical gloves are held. The ports with the most medical delayed supplies are Los Angeles/Long Beach, Savannah, New York/New Jersey, Charleston, Seattle, Oakland, Boston, Baltimore and Houston.
Axios reports under a “Why it matters” headline, that “Per their projections, medical supplies arriving at a U.S. port on Christmas Day won’t be delivered to hospitals and other care settings until February 2022.”
As a result, “that could delay critical supplies at a time when health care is already expected to most need them due to surges from Delta and Omicron.”
Additionally, “The supply chain problems can compound, starting with medical supplies languishing in U.S. ports for an average of 17 days, officials said.”
