Josh Mandel Calls for Congressional ‘November 3rd Commission’ to Chase Donald Trump’s Fantasies
Twice-failed Republican United States Senate candidate Josh Mandel of Ohio said on The Pete Santilli Show late last month that the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol is a “total waste of time” and that instead, lawmakers should be pursuing former President Donald Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was fraudulent and stolen.
“I actually came out and called on the US House and the US Senate to completely abolish this January 6th commission. I don’t think we should have a January 6th commission. I think it’s a waste of taxpayer time, it’s a waste of taxpayer money, and I think we should replace it with a November 3rd commission.
“Oh yes,” replied host Pete Santilli, a rabid right-wing conspiracy theorist.
“If Congress wants to spend time investigating something, they should investigate the fact that this election was stolen from Donald Trump, and they should not only be auditing the vote in Arizona – and I went out there, Pete, I went to Maricopa County. I went to The Colosseum where they’re auditing the vote – I think we should use the full investigative power and the subpoena power of the Congress to audit and look under the hood of what happened in Arizona, in Michigan, in Wisconsin, in Pennsylvania, and in Georgia. In all these states where we know they were harvesting ballots, where they were using ‘public health’ as a reason to change the rules with two minutes left in the game, where they were allowing people to vote at addresses that don’t exist or were boarded up,” Mandel said.
“And listen, as a Marine Corps vet, you and I both know, when people cheat in elections – when these Democrats cheat in elections – they’re not only disenfranchising their neighbors, they’re stomping on the graves of every Marine, soldier, sailor, airman who’s paid the ultimate sacrifice so we can live free, so we can have that right to vote every November,” he continued. “So I think this whole January 6th thing, you know, this commission or whatever, you know, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi [D-CA], whatever you call it, it’s a total waste of time, and as I said, we should replace it with a commission to investigate the real crime, which was the stealing of the election from Donald J. Trump, and I believe that Trump won the election.”
