Senator Ron Johnson (R – Disinformation) has been at the center of any number of anti-American pogroms since his election to the Senate. It has only gotten worse during the post-Trump era with his attacks on democracy…and now we have just one more instance of his efforts to overthrow the government of the United States. And no, I am not overstating my case here.
Most of this information comes from the June 21, 2022 public hearings into the January 6th Insurrection. A day that WILL go down in Infamy.
Minutes before Congress was set to begin certification of the 2020 election on Jan. 6, 2021, an aide for U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson told former Vice President Mike Pence’s staff that Johnson wanted to hand-deliver to Pence the fake elector votes from Wisconsin and Michigan.
“Johnson needs to hand something to VPOTUS please advise,” Johnson aide Sean Riley said in a text message to Pence staffer Chris Hodgson at 12:37 p.m. on Jan. 6, according to evidence presented Tuesday by the House select committee investigating the attack on the U.S. Capitol.
“What is it?” Hodgson, a former legislative affairs director for Pence, replied.
“Alternate slate of electors for MI and WI because archivist didn’t receive them,” Riley wrote back.
Hodgson then told Riley: “Do not give that to him.”
So, Ron Johnson has clearly violated his oath to protect the US Constitution. He has participated in back room efforts to overturn a valid election and overthrow an elected government. He has attempted his own version of ‘voter fraud’ on all of America. He has violated his promises and responsibilities to the residents of Wisconsin. His efforts in the name of power for the GOP and Donald Trump are far more dangerous and insidious than anything perpetrated by the rioters who invaded the US Capitol.
Ron ‘Moscow’ Johnson should immediately resign his position as a US Senator and halt and dismantle his campaign for re-election. And Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul should look into bringing charges against him as should US Attorney General Merrick Garland.
Oh oh oh, but RoJo isn’t at fault.
“This was a staff to staff exchange,” Henning wrote. “His new Chief of Staff contacted the Vice President’s office. The Vice President’s office said not to give it to him and we did not. There was no further action taken. End of story.”
Yes, finger pointing…the GOP’s favorite MO when ‘cornered’…well if this happened in his office, in his name, he is the responsible party…LOCK HIM UP!
