- Mike Roman, then Trump’s 2020 director of Election Day operations, reportedly delivered false elector certificates to Matt Stroia, Rep. Mike Kelly’s (R-Pa.) chief of staff.
- Kelly initially said his office had nothing to do with the fake elector list, but no longer denies that his staff did.
- An unidentified member of Rep. Kelly’s staff may have distributed copies of the lists to members of Congress.
- Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said the false elector lists came to his office from Kelly.
- Kelly says they didn’t.
- Johnson said: “My office’s entire involvement in this thing lasted 70 minutes. My involvement was probably seconds, maybe a minute or two.”
- Text messages show that Sean Riley, an aide to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), reached out to a Pence aide to arrange a handoff of fake election certificates for Michigan and Wisconsin.
- Sen. Johnson says he was unaware of his aide’s involvement.
- Sen. Johnson says as V.P. Pence didn’t want the lists, no harm was done.
These members of Congress seem to know very little about what staff members do. Stay tuned; as more information comes to light, recollections may change again.
