"Whatever You Can Do": Jan. 6 Hearing Lays Out "Fake Electors" Scheme to Rig 2020 Election for Trump

Tuesday's hearing of the House committee investigating the January 6 attack included evidence of how then-President Trump and his campaign "were directly involved" in a plot to replace Biden electors with fake electors for Trump in states where he had lost. Investigators displayed fake certifications manufactured by the Trump campaign and said that one group of fake electors even asked for a promise that the campaign would pay their legal fees if they got sued or charged with a crime. The committee also revealed that just minutes before the joint session on January 6, a staffer for Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson told Mike Pence he wished to hand-deliver to the vice president the fake electors' votes from Michigan and Wisconsin — which Pence's aide unambiguously refused. Democracy Now! features a video presented to the January 6 committee as evidence that features Casey Lucier, an investigative counsel, describing the plan to organize fake electors for Trump in states where he had lost, with testimony of former Trump staffers, lawyers, and other Republican officials. #DemocracyNow
