Sen. Ron Johnson Wanted to Hand Deliver Fake Electors to Pence on Jan. 6

Source: Rolling Stone

The Jan. 6 committee revealed on Tuesday that former President Donald Trump was “directly” involved in the illegal campaign to fabricate phony slates of electors in key swing states. So too was Rudy Giuliani. So too was John Eastman, who wrote the “coup memo” instructing former Vice President Mike Pence to stop the certification of the Electoral College. So too, apparently, was Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) — so much so that he wanted to subvert the will of his state’s own voters and hand-deliver fraudulent Wisconsin electors to Pence on Jan. 6.

The committee displayed a text message from one of Johnson’s staffers, sent just minutes before Pence was set to certify the election, stating that the senator wanted to give Pence the fake electors from Wisconsin and Michigan. “Do not give that to him,” replied one of Pence’s staffers.

Alexa Henning, a spokesperson for Johnson, responded on Twitter that the senator had no involvement in the “creation of an alternate slate of electors” and that he did not know his office would receive the slate ahead of time. She did not refute anything revealed in the hearing.

The committee also revealed on Tuesday that the Trump campaign was involved in the effort to transport the fake slates of electors from the states to Washington, D.C.; that Eastman asked the Republican National Committee to assist in the scheme; and that the White House counsel’s office informed key players like Giuliani and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows that the scheme was not legally sound. They proceeded with it anyway.

9. We Wisconsinites do deserve better.

We've been bullied by the minority here since the 2010 Walker election and subsequent gerrymander.

Don't be surprised if we hear that Scott Fitzgerald (R-WI) and Robin Vos (R-WI, POS) are up to ears in this whole thing with RoJo.

8. I figure his part in it was packing SCOTUS

The GOP coup has been ongoing since at least 2000, arguably before. What has them freaked out is that something is being done about it finally.

17. I was curious too and did some scanning around

and it seems that MI, like AZ, as states that have a big chunk of electors, is one of the few that currently lacks showboating loons like a Johnson (both MI Senators are (D)). And although the House members have a handful of subversives, they don't seem to have risen to the level of those in other states like here in PA with insurrectionist Scott Perry, MI's veteran GOP Congressman - Fred Upton - objected to his party's nonsense. So it seems to have made sense to partner with WI for submitting their fake electors.

I did just see this and I expect those MI electors are shitting their pants - https://www.deadlinedetroit.com/articles/30767/we_didn_t_read_the_fine_print_say_two_michigan_fake_trump_electors

I remember back in 2020 when I stumbled on, and for some reason got totally engrossed in watching the stream of the Wayne County vote certification where the 2 jackass (R)s on their Canvasser Board were refusing to certify the county votes. That resulted in a tie and kept the state's most populous county's result in flux (Wayne County includes Detroit). Finally after a break and some heavy negative press, one relented and that broke the tie, so they could complete the certification, and move on.

18. Goddammit, stop picking on Jon Rohnson!

It's just like you libs to pick on a disabled person. Look, we all know that Jon Rohnson was kicked in the face by a mule as a child and had his brain replaced by a block of cheese. It's a damn miracle he can even tie his shoes, yet alone hold down a job more complicated than being a figurehead that does no actual work. Just leave cheesehead Jon Rohnson alone, libs!


Seriously though, how dumb is this guy?
