The Senate Homeland Security & Government Affairs Committee held a hearing on Wednesday to discuss and examine irregularities in the 2020 presidential election. This hearing comes one day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell acknowledged Joe Biden as the President-elect.

Senator Ron Johnson, the Committee’s Chairman, called this hearing to “resolve suspicions with full transparency and public awareness.”

In Johnson’s opening statement, he said he believes the alleged election irregularities can be organized into three categories: lack of enforcement or violation of election laws and controls, allegations of fraudulent votes and ballot stuffing and corruption of voting machines and software that might be programed to add or switch votes.

“The most difficult allegations to asses involve vulnerabilities in voting machines and the software used,” Johnson said.

Johnson did not say he was trying to dispute the outcome, saying that the question was “whether the level of fraud would alter the election.”

“This year, in dozens of court cases, through the certification process in each state and by the Electoral College vote, the conclusion has collectively been reached that it would not,” he said.

As this is Johnson’s last investigation and last hearing as a chairman, he wants to ensure that oversight into election integrity will continue into the next congress because “we must restore confidence in the integrity of our voting system.”

“The fact that our last two presidential elections have not been accepted as legitimate by large percentages of the American public is a serious problem that threatens our republic. I do not say that lightly.”

He continued, “Even though courts have handed out decisions and the electoral college has awarded Joe Biden 306 electoral votes, a large percentage of the American public does not believe the November election results are legitimate.”

Johnson noted that hyper partisanship and media suppression and censorship played a big role in the outcome of the election.

“Media suppression can and does affect the outcome of an election,” Johnson said referring to the Hunter Biden foreign financial entanglements.

The witnesses who testified at the hearing included James Troupis who represented the Trump campaign in the court case in Wisconsin, Jesse Binnall who was Trump’s attorney in Nevada, US Election Assistance Commissioner Donald Palmer, Pennsylvania State Rep Francis Ryan, former CISA director Christopher Krebs and attorney Ken Starr.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
