RNC to host GA ‘Victory Rally’ with Trump, other GOP figures amid both Senate runoffs

The Republican National Committee (RNC) is set to host a ‘Victory Rally’ in Georgia on December 5 that will feature President Donald Trump and other Republicans, according to an email sent out by the RNC on Wednesday.

This rally, according to a tweet from ABC News’ Johnny Verhovek, is scheduled to take place in Valdosta, Georgia on Saturday at 7 pm at the regional airport. The event will see remarks from Trump, Georgia Sens. David Perdue (R) and Kelly Loeffler (R), candidate for Public Service Commissioner Lauren “Bubba” McDonald, and other Republicans.

This is amidst the two side-by-side runoff elections for both of the Peach State’s U.S. Senate seats that will determine which political party will control the upper chamber of Congress, albeit with a slim majority, likely until the 2022 midterm elections.

Perdue and Loeffler currently face brutal re-election fights in both their January 5 runoff races against well-funded Democratic opponents, Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock respectively. On November 3 both Senate races, featuring multiple candidates, resulted in no candidate receiving more than 50% of the vote, which automatically triggered runoffs between the two highest vote-getters in each race in accordance with state law.

If Democrats sweep both seats in January, they will control 50 out of the 100 Senate seats and have Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as the tiebreaking vote. Whether or not they can achieve this hat trick will make or break which of President-elect Joe Biden‘s cabinet picks will be confirmed by the Senate once he officially becomes president on January 20.

It should be noted that the Loeffler-Warnock race is also a special election, since Loeffler was appointed by Georgia’s governor in December 2019 to succeed then-Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) after he announced that he would be stepping down for health reasons. The winner of this special election’s runoff will serve the remainder of Isakson’s term, which ends on January 3, 2023.

Since the runoffs began about a month ago, a flood of high-profile Republicans and Democrats have flocked to Georgia to campaign for their respective party’s pair of senatorial candidates. Many speculate that a big motivator behind these big-name political figures’ aggressive campaigning in the runoffs is to set themselves up for potential presidential bids in 2024. This has especially been said of Vice President Mike Pence now that Trump won’t have a second term in the White House, although a similar amount of speculation has emerged in recent weeks that Trump might try to run again in 2024.

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.”
