Who are the real winners and losers in this sham?
The top Republicans on the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees on Wednesday demanded that Committee Chairs Jerrold Nadler and Carolyn Maloney launch congressional investigations into alleged “errors and misconduct” surrounding the 2020 presidential election, and called for them to hold hearings “immediately.”
House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer, R-Ky., penned a letter to Nadler, D-N.Y., and Maloney, D-N.Y., urging them to “examine the integrity of the 2020 election” amid claims from the Trump campaign of “irregularities” and “improprieties.”
“We urge you to immediately convene hearings to examine the integrity of the 2020 election amid troubling reports of irregularities and improprieties,” Jordan, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, and Comer, the top Republican on the Oversight Committee, wrote.
“Given your role as leaders of a political party that spent four years baselessly calling into question the legitimacy of the 2016 election with debunked allegations of Russian collusion, you owe it to all Americans to fully examine allegations of actual election errors and misconduct,” they wrote, referring to the yearslong congressional investigations into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to influence the last election.
Jordan and Comer, in their letter, referred to a report they released in September, where they warned that last-minute changes to state election laws and procedures, which they called “dangerous initiatives,” would increase the risk for election-related crimes and errors and would “undermine the integrity of the electoral process” and “cause lingering uncertainty about the results of the election for several days or weeks after Election Day.”
“Democrats ignored this report, but many of our predications have unfortunately come true,” they wrote.
Jordan and Comer also said that they warned “that because Democrats refuse to clean up outdated and inaccurate voter registration rolls, a last-minute move to widespread mail-in voting in some states would have unintended consequences.”
“These serious concerns give rise to the urgent need for congressional oversight of the integrity of the 2020 election,” they wrote. “Our committees must conduct oversight hearings to ensure that Americans have faith in the integrity of our election.”
Jordan and Comer asked their Democratic colleagues to work with them to schedule hearings “as soon as possible.”
Nadler and Maloney did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on whether their respective committees will hold hearings to examine the 2020 election.
