The nation is in turmoil.
There is overwhelming evidence of widespread voter fraud in Democrat controlled swing states that may have swung the election from the rightful winner, GOP Donald Trump, to Democrat Joe Biden.
Some obvious steps would go a long way to settle doubts and suspicions and, just as importantly, would remove the shadow looming over Biden and the next four years:
- The U.S. Department of Justice could conduct an immediate forensic audit of Dominion Voting Systems voting machines used in the election.
- The DOJ and the FBI could conduct an intensive investigation of reports of ballot stuffing on a massive scale.
What is more important to the nation than insuring the right to vote was not compromised by malevolent actors in the United States and abroad?
Polls show that a third of Democrats and most Republicans suspect the election was stolen. What impact will their suspicions have going forward if they are ignored? It will grievously harm civic life in America for many years, and will utterly destroy respect for American laws and institutions.
The stakes couldn’t be higher.
But nothing is being done.

The Code of Conduct for U.S. Judges requires judges to perform the duties of office “fairly, impartially and diligently.”
Americans have watched an unseemly spectacle unfold for many months involving a federal judge who has used scarce public resources to engage in what appears to be nothing more than a political vendetta.
That vendetta ended Thursday when President Donald Trump pardoned his former national security advisor, retired three-star Army general Michael T. Flynn, who pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI but then recanted.
Evidence emerged that high-ranking FBI officials, holdovers from the Obama administration, had orchestrated an ambush of Flynn to trap him into making statements that they could allege to be false.
After Attorney General William Barr ordered a review of Flynn’s case by a federal prosecutor, the Department of Justice in May sought to drop the charges against Flynn. The government said the evidence of FBI misconduct meant Flynn’s statements were not material to a legitimate investigation, which was an essential element of a false-statements offense.
That should have been the end of it. The prosecutor is uniquely capable of determining whether it can prosecute a criminal defendant. But it wasn’t .
U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan of the District of Columbia refused to dismiss Flynn’s case.
In an unorthodox move, Sullivan appointed a retired federal judge to argue contrary to the DOJ’s position that Flynn should proceed with sentencing on his guilty plea. (Nevermind that the retired judge earlier penned an op-ed piece In the Washington Post stating the dismissal of Flynn’s case “reeks of improper political influence.”)
