Earlier this week the January 6th Committee revealed that Republican Senator Ron Johnson and his office attempted to deliver a last minute slate of fake pro-Trump electors to Mike Pence’s office. At the time, Johnson claimed he didn’t even know where the documents came from – which was not exactly the most convincing defense.
Now that Johnson has had a moment to realize his ‘received documents and tried to give them to the Vice President without knowing who they were even from’ defense wasn’t working, he’s trying a new tack.
Ron Johnson is now claiming that his office received the documents from House Republican Mike Kelly, according to NBC News. But as it turns out, Kelly is insisting that Johnson’s claims are “patently false.”
So now we’ve got Senate Republican Ron Johnson trying to throw House Republican Mike Kelly under the bus, and Kelly flat out accusing Johnson of having made the whole thing up. At least one of these guys is lying – and whoever is lying is in some serious legal trouble.
