(UnitedVoice.com) – The outcome of the 2020 presidential election is still up in the air. President Donald Trump’s campaign is fighting the results in multiple states. Now, the Senate is jumping into the battle, too.
The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee will hold the first hearing on election irregularities on December 16. Before the hearing, the committee will release more details including witnesses.
Chairman of the committee, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), said he thought it was important to hold the hearing because “a large percentage of the American public” believes the election was not legitimate. By examining the irregularities, the Senate will be able to give those voters peace of mind that lawmakers did everything they could to ensure only legal votes were counted.
Not everyone is on board with the hearing though. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called it “ridiculous.”
Sen. Schumer blasted the GOP for staging a “ridiculous” hearing next week on supposed election irregularities.
“When is this nonsense detrimental to our democracy going to end? To use a Senate committee to spread misinformation about our own elections…"https://t.co/nA2pCHv4gP

Democrats have so much contempt for President Donald Trump they’re willing to let the questions Americans have about the election go unanswered. Lawmakers like Schumer are supposed to uphold the Constitution, but they seem to think that’s only their job when their beliefs align with the document. Fortunately, they have no control over the Senate and Republicans are determined to get to the bottom of the problem.
