Election Fraud Fight Comes Before the United States Congress

On Jan. 6, the U.S. Congress will act on its constitutional authority to certify the Electoral College votes, to determine who won the 2020 election. Since Nov. 4, there have been numerous challenges to the claim of a Biden victory in six battleground states –Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona and Nevada. In each of those states, Donald Trump had large leads in the early evening, which disappeared as the totals from mail-in ballots came in, along with the late tallies from cities controlled by urban Democratic Party machines.

In these states, attorneys and investigators for Trump have compiled nearly 1,000 affidavits from poll watchers, election officials, and others who claim they witnessed violations of the law and other irregularities. There have also been reports from computer experts asserting that the machinery used for voting, and the software for counting votes, is “prone to tampering”, and statisticians who concluded that the huge totals after midnight for Biden, compared to the minuscule numbers for Trump, were anomalous to an extreme extent. But so far, all the legal actions taken have been dismissed on various grounds of a “lack of evidence” or sufficient evidence to overturn the final results (cf. SAS 46-52/20)

Given these developments, Trump supporters plan a large rally outside the Capitol on Jan. 6 where the Congress is meeting. At the same time, more than 140 House members and one Senator will challenge the slate of Biden electors in the battleground states, which will require both Houses to convene a hearing on each of the states challenged, to take up the merit of the challenges. In addition, a group of eleven Republican Senators will demand that an immediate audit be conducted by members of both Houses, to investigate the charges, and then issue a report within ten days.

The other option open to Trump is to appoint a special counsel with full investigative powers, to look at the charges of fraud as potential criminal actions. While he has mooted the possibility of doing this, he has not moved on it so far.

This was raised at an extraordinary online forum sponsored by The LaRouche Organization (TLO) on Jan.2, which included presentations by state legislators from three of the battleground states, and local poll watchers and election officials, who reported what they saw (https://laroucheorganization.nationbuilder.com/citizens_commission_on_truth_in_elections_defeat_the_vote_fraud). In summarizing the argument as to why appointing a special prosecutor is urgently needed, TLO spokesman Harley Schlanger noted that the key question is who was capable of mounting such a huge volume of irregularities to obtain the desired outcome. “This requires a top-down operation”, he said, which goes far beyond the capabilities of the Democratic Party, and needs to be investigated from the standpoint of the traditional oligarchical enemies of the American Republic since its foundation. Nothing less will work.
