The state of Pennsylvania certified its election results on Tuesday, as Gov. Tom Wolf signed the Certificate of Ascertainment, officially declaring Joe Biden the winner.

Pennsylvania followed shortly after the certification of the results in Michigan on Monday and Georgia on Friday. All three were battleground states that President Trump won in 2016.

On Monday, several counties across Central Pennsylvania continued to certify the results of the election, despite ongoing legal challenges from the Trump campaign regarding election fraud.

Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar made the final vote counts official: Biden received 3,458,229 votes, President Donald Trump received 3,377,674 votes.

“Today’s certification is a testament to the incredible efforts of our local and state election officials, who worked tirelessly to ensure Pennsylvania had a free, fair and accurate process that reflects the will of the voters,” Wolf said in a statement.

FBI punishing employees who attended Jan 6 rally by revoking security clearances

United States Congress

The official Twitter account of the GOP House Judiciary Committee released an alarming warning: “Whistleblowers alert that the FBI appears to be attempting to terminate the employment of employees who were engaged in protected First Amendment activity on January 6, 2021.”

A letter from ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), to FBI Director Christopher Wray, addresses how several whistleblowers exposed the FBI of stripping employees of security clearances.

The letter cites claims of multiple whistleblowers who say the FBI has been purposely punishing those who attended then-president Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6, 2021, by revoking their clearances. Reportedly many of them did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.

“While FBI employees may not participate in partisan political campaigns, [they] do not give up their rights to engage in political speech activity,” wrote Jordan. “We have serious concerns that the FBI appears to be retaliating against employees for engaging in political speech disfavored by FBI leadership,” he added.

The primary whistleblower is described as a 20-year veteran of the FBI and U.S. military. Jordan believes the FBI’s actions could potentially result in the administrative extermination of the individuals’ employment because the FBI requires top-secret security clearances for majority of its employees.

Jordan has required that the FBI brief the committee on the security clearances matter by May 20.
