Ron Johnson Attended Meeting To Oppose Election Certification
Meeting set up by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell came two days before January 6 Capitol riot.
Sen. Ron Johnson attended a meeting put together by conspiracy theorist, Donald Trump ally and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell on Jan. 4, 2021 to discuss ways to delay the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory, according to the Washington Post.
The meeting was held at the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C. and Johnson attended virtually, but two other Republican senators, Kevin Cramer, (R-N.D.), and Cynthia M. Lummis, (R-Wyo.), attended in person.
A Dec. 18 memo, obtained by the Post, that explains the plan to dig through American’s communication data was circulated to Johnson and other senators after the meeting.
The meeting came two days before the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol that followed a number of Republicans objecting to the certification of Biden’s win. Johnson, who had initially signaled that he’d vote against certification, voted to certify following the attack on the Capitol. Johnson has continued to spread conspiracy theories about the 2020 election in the year since the attack.
Johnson, who was at the time the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, had held a hearing on Dec. 18, 2020 to look into unfounded accusations of election fraud. A spokesperson for Johnson’s office told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that this committee work was why he attended the meeting.
The emergence of the memo and knowledge of the Jan. 4 meeting is not Johnson’s only accusation of election fraud to be revealed this week. In a virtual town hall, Johnson accused Milwaukee of being a significant source of election fraud.
“Our concern is Milwaukee…. This is one of these big Democrat strongholds that just can’t seem to get their votes counted until they know exactly how many votes they need,” he said at the Wednesday town hall. “Whether anything’s happening or not, this just looks suspicious.”
Ron Johnson attended meeting on delaying election certification two days before Jan. 6 was originally published by the Wisconsin Examiner.

Ronny the Johnson’s
Provide to the public
The poisonous potions
Needed to banish
All traces of reason
and prompt the commitment of
Lewd acts of treason.
Johnson doesn’t feel it necessary to try to get new postal trucks built in Wisconsin. He says in a Journal article,
‘It’s not like we don’t have enough jobs here in Wisconsin’…I wouldn’t insert myself to demand that anything be manufactured here using federal funds in Wisconsin,” Johnson told reporters after appearing at a “Parent Empowerment Rally” in Washington County. “Obviously, I’m supportive of it. But in the end, I think when using federal tax dollars, you want to spend those in the most efficient way and if it’s more efficient, more effective to spend those in other states, I don’t have a real problem with that.”
Jeez do we need a new Senator.
