Listen to “Rep. Andy Biggs: Don't be surprised if this election goes to the SCOTUS” on Spreaker.

Pennsylvania’s chief election official has suggested that the “overwhelming majority of ballots” have already been counted but that more need to be tallied in order to get a clearer sense of who the winner in the state is.

Kathy Boockvar, the Pennsylvania Sec. of State, elaborated on the progress made with the vote count so far at a late Thursday afternoon press conference in Harrisburg, saying that: “We’re coming in the home stretch here.”

“What’s happening now is having enough ballots counted to actually see who the winner is,” she said, adding, “the farther apart [the margin] is, the easier it is to tell.”

“So, it’s very close in Pennsylvania,” Boockvar continued, “there’s no question. And so that means it’s going to take longer to actually see who the winner is. But I can tell you that there are several hundred thousand ballots remaining to be counted. You can track all that—what counties it remains in—look at our website and you’ll be able to see how we get to the conclusion.”

As for when she believes some results will be revealed, while also emphasizing that the full election results won’t be officially certified until 20 days after the election, she says their ahead of schedule.

“What I’ve said all along is that the overwhelming majority of ballots will be counted by Friday,” she said.

Continuing, she said, “I still think that we are ahead of schedule—” but then she corrected herself and added that “we actually already have counted the overwhelming majority of ballots, but, because it’s a close race, it’s not quite clear yet who the winner is.”

At the time of publication, President Trump has a slight lead over former Vice President Joe Biden, but Biden is closing the gap between them as more ballots are counted.

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
