WASHINGTON, D.C., November 19, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) —Two Republican congressman asked the leaders of two key committees to bring hearings into allegations of fraud in the recent U.S. presidential election.
Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan, a member of the Committee on the Judiciary, and Kentucky’s James Comer, a member of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, addressed a letter to Democrat Jerrold L. Nadler, Chairman of the Committee on the Judiciary, and Democrat Carolyn B. Maloney, Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform.
“We urge you to immediately convene hearings to examine the integrity of the 2020 election amid troubling reports of irregularities and improprieties,” Jordan and Comer wrote yesterday.
The Republicans took an aggressive tone toward the Democrat committee chairs, telling them that their party “spent four years baselessly calling into question the legitimacy of the 2016 election with debunked allegations of Russian collusion.”
Given their roles as leaders in that party, Nadler and Maloney “owe all it to all Americans to fully examine allegations of actual election errors and misconduct,” Jordan and Comer declared.
PETITION UPDATE (1/15/2021) -
The events of the past month, and especially the past 10 days, have shaken the faith Americans have in their elected and appoint officials.
We continue to call for investigations to be made into allegations of election fraud. Texas is in the process of prosecuting one political operative for illegal ballot harvesting, and multiple state legislatures have called for investigations, too.
However, the judiciary has severely let down the American electorate.
As we have said all along, the integrity of the election is much bigger than President Trump. Election integrity is at the heart of republican democracy, and if we don't have it, we no longer have a functioning republic.
Therefore, we continue to seek the truth for the election outcome. Perhaps that will only be known in the future when state or federal commissions are established to investigate the instances of election fraud which were witnessed and sworn to, by thousands of Americans of all political persuasions.
In the meantime, you may still sign this petition. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20) -
On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted: "We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!"
He is referring to the lawsuit which the state of Texas has filed against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
President Trump also tweeted that this case is, "very strong...ALL CRITERIA MET."
Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
PETITION UPDATE (12/7/20) - Since this petition was launched, President Trump's legal team, as well as other concerned citizens, have discovered what appears to be irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in several of the key battleground states, and have initiated legal challenges in six states.
While the situation continues to evolve, this remains a hugely important petition which we encourage you to SIGN and SHARE.
Below, please WATCH and READ about the mounting evidence of voter fraud and how the mainstream media seem determined to ignore even the most egregious instances of vote tampering. Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition.
LifeSite supports President Trump with this petition because we believe he is trying to defend the Constitution, ensuring that electoral fraud does not taint the result of the 2020 general election.
But, since starting this petition, we have launched a separate petition related to the disputed election outcome, calling on the Department of Justice to 'do their job' and engage in meaningful investigations of the mounting evidence of voter fraud.
We believe that conducting forensic audits of ballots and voting machines, as well as issuing subpoenas to collect more evidence, would be a good start.
Thankfully, some of the state started to demand investigations independent of federal agencies. But we still believe that the DoJ needs to use its enormous fact-finding resources to help resolve allegations of election fraud.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE all our election-related petitions.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which calls on all Americans to Stand With President Trump as he uses every legitimate means to find out if voter fraud played any role in the election outcome.
Amid allegations of voter fraud, and at a time when the situation with COVID has been used by many of the states to facilitate the use of mail-in ballots on a massive scale, we need to be very careful in dismissing the possibility of voter fraud.
The fact is, the possibility of wide-spread fraud with mail-in ballots is significant.
But, this is not about Donald Trump or Joe Biden! This about whether or not the sanctity of the ballot box has been tampered with!
Please Stand With President Trump as he attempts to defend the integrity of this election, as well as well as the right to vote itself!
Indeed, this is so important, not so much because one election hangs in the balance, but because our democracy, itself, hangs in the balance.
Americans not only have a right to know, but should demand that every legitimate means be used to discover the truth about these elections!
Please SIGN this petition and Stand With President Trump to ensure that these elections were conducted freely and fairly!
While most all Americans believe in playing by the rules, we also know that some very devious, politically-motivated operatives have been trying to harm the Trump administration from before he even took the oath of office.
This fact should lead us to question how some allegations of voter fraud can be so easily dismissed by state election authorities.
We demand to know the truth, and, for the sake of our democracy, we demand that President Trump keep fighting to learn the truth.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition today!

There was a strong element of “we told you so” in the letter. Jordan and Comer reminded committee chiefs of a report they had made in September “detailing how Democrats across the country were pushing last-minute changes to state election laws and procedures.”
“We warned that these dangerous initiatives would increase the risk of election-related crimes and errors, 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,” they wrote.
“Democrats ignored this report, but many of our predictions have unfortunately become true.”
The two men had been critical when, in Pennsylvania, the Democrat majority on the state’s supreme court passed a measure allowing mail-in ballots to arrive three days after the Election was over. In addition, ballots received without a postmark would be judged to have arrived in time. Jordan and Comer had warned that “uncertainly and litigation” could result from this decision, and yesterday declared that they had.
“Litigation about this last-minute change is currently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court, and Pennsylvania is still counting mail-in and absentee ballots,” the congressmen stated.
Meanwhile, there are accusations that election fraud was being perpetrated weeks after the election. Comer and Jordan noted that there are also allegations that “local officials in some Pennsylvania counties” are not allowing scrutineers to watch the ballots being tallied.
Their letter also touched on the multiple ballots that had been sent to individual voters, particularly in California, where Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a law to make the election “all-mail.” In Los Angeles, more than 2,000 faulty ballots, with no space in which to vote for the office of President, were sent out. Jordan and Comer also noted that thousands of uncounted ballots were discovered in Georgia.
“These serious concerns give rise to the urgent need for congressional oversight of the integrity of the 2020 election,” the congressmen wrote.
“Our committees must conduct oversight hearings to ensure that Americans have faith in the integrity of our election. We ask that you work with us to schedule and plan these hearings as soon as possible.”
The letter was released to the public through the Twitter account of the Republican section of the House Committee on the Judiciary. It follows more than two weeks of allegations by Republicans of massive electoral fraud during the recent U.S. presidential election.
