The probe is necessary to uphold vote integrity, top Republicans assert

President Donald Trump has lost to President-elect Joe Biden in the race. The fight, however, continues for Trump after he refused to concede to his Democratic opponent. His campaign has also mounted legal cases to challenge the credibility of the elections.

Jordan and Comer said election investigations are e necessary because of “dangerous initiatives” that raise the risk of election-related crimes and errors that “undermine the integrity of the electoral process” and “cause lingering uncertainty about the results of the election for several days or weeks after Election Day.”

“Democrats ignored this report, but many of our predictions have unfortunately come true,” they wrote.

The Republican lawmakers also challenged Democrats that because they “refuse to clean up outdated and inaccurate voter registration rolls, a last-minute move to widespread mail-in voting in some states would have unintended consequences.”

They added, “These serious concerns give rise to the urgent need for congressional oversight of the integrity of the 2020 election.”

President Trump on Wednesday paid some $3 million for a recount of Wisconsin’s two largest Democratic counties.

The state, which overwhelmingly favored Biden, was cited by Trump in his latest tweet, as he fumed over alleged irregularities that transpired.
