Heather published another fact-filled letter last night.
Here are some key paragraphs:
In last night’s filed motion was part of the testimony to the committee from Cassidy Hutchinson, a former special assistant to the president and the chief of staff. When asked which members of Congress were involved in calls about overturning the election—including calls saying such efforts were illegal—Hutchinson named Representatives Greene, Jordan, Boebert, Scott Perry (R-PA), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Mo Brooks (R-AL), Jody Hice (R-GA), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), and Debbie Lesko (R-AZ).
The heart of this group was the “Freedom Caucus,” which was organized in 2015 to move the Republican Party farther to the right. Its first chair was Jim Jordan; its second was Mark Meadows. Its third was Andy Biggs. Mick Mulvaney, who would go on to Trump’s White House, and Ron DeSantis, who is now governor of Florida, were key organizers.
Somehow, I got on Gosar's mailing list.
His most recent letter is a clear indicator that he lives in different universe than the rest of us
As most of you know, I have been following the election issues in Arizona since …well at least November 2020. We all saw the fake data swings, the breaking of Arizona election laws and abuse of mail-in voting. I was among the first to call for an audit. I knew an audit would either confirm or rebut allegations of fraud. I was fine either way. If the election was “perfect” as the Maricopa supervisors screamed, then I would be the first to rest easy and simply move ahead. If there was in fact fraud, then I knew we needed to do something to fix the election process and correct any fraudulent outcomes in the 2020 election. Simply shrugging our shoulders and saying, “oh well, maybe next time” doesn’t cut it when there is fraud. Fraud requires a remedy. A fix.
The Arizona Senate, to its credit, conducted an audit and confirmed numerous fraudulent irregularities. We could say “I told you so.” Prior the audit being undertaken, I took to the floor of the House of Representatives on January 6th, 2021. I officially objected to the Arizona electors and asked the Vice President to remand, or send back, the slate to Arizona pending an audit. That request was made under federal law and the U.S. Constitution. There is nothing untoward about it, and democrats used the same law to challenge George Bush in 2001 and Donald Trump in 2017.
Unknown to me and most people, a rally in front of the Capitol turned into a riot.
(Really, Paul? You helped to plan the damn thing)
At about the time I was speaking. My motion was interrupted, as was the whole day, and securing the Capitol from angry rioters became the imperative. We never regained our momentum or fair debate on the issues because of that, and my official business in Congress was interfered with.
Today, we know that the FBI had infiltrators, informants and agents provocateur egging people on;
We know that House leadership was warned of potential violence but they did not warn the rest of us; we know there were weird groups of semi militarized people “marching” around; we know radical leftists, like John Sullivan, were present and urged people to “burn” and destroy the Capitol. We also know many people got carried away by events. Over 500 arrests have been made and many of the January 6 defendants, most charged with non-violent crimes, remain languishing in fetid cells, denied bail, and denied basic human rights as political prisoners of the regime.
Because I spoke up about the injustice I witnessed; because I sought the truth about the election; because I stood up on the floor of the House and spoke on behalf of real Americans in their concern for fair elections, a far leftist group, funded in part by George Soros and other leftist degenerates, sued me, Congressman Andy Biggs and state Representative Mark Finchem. Their goal is to keep us off the ballots this fall.
(Why does George Soros keep coming up?)
The leftists know they can’t beat me at the ballot box fair and square. So, they are using lawfare to attack us.
Gosar now lives in the most conservative district in the state, and typically gets 60% of the vote, even though his own siblings think that he's crazy
Fortunately, we drew a good judge who understands the law and the rules. Judge Coury dismissed the abusive claims against us on Friday. But true to their allegiance to Soros, the leftists have decided to appeal the dismissal. I will keep you posted.
(An Arizona judge dismissed a lawsuit Friday that sought to bar three Republicans from appearing on the November ballot because they took part in the rally at the White House Ellipse on Jan. 6, 2021, before the Capitol riot.)
Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Christopher Coury determined the plaintiffs did not have the grounds to sue in the case as they requested but refrained from ruling on the merits of their allegations.
That's not exactly an exoneration, Paul.
