Election Interference Begins – GOP Furious Over New Biden Plans

In the wake of papers uncovered by the Washington Examiner regarding a crucial meeting between the White House and liberal activists on voter registration, House Republicans inquiring into the Biden administration in the run-up to the 2024 election have voiced their worries.

Legislators on the Republican side are becoming more concerned that the federal government would unlawfully use an executive order from 2021, which ordered federal agencies to create voter registration strategies with “authorized” outside groups, to increase Democratic turnout in the upcoming November election. Internal records reveal that the government had a July 2021 order planning call that seemed to serve primarily as a venue for left-wing organizations to propose extensive changes to election legislation, despite the Biden administration’s claims that the unprecedented operation is nonpartisan.

“President Biden’s EO is an overreach of his constitutional authority and disregards the Constitution’s federalist electoral system,” stated James Comer (R-KY), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, in an interview with the Washington Examiner. Everyone should take this executive order seriously, since the states determine when and how to hold their own elections.

Elise Stefanik (R-NY), chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, stated that the notes from secret meetings show that the Biden administration and progressives planned “election interference” and that lawmakers are looking into the executive order from 2021 “to ensure our elections are free and fair.” Many people believe that Stefanik might be one of Donald Trump’s vice presidential candidates for 2024.

An average of the polls conducted by RealClearPolitics shows that Trump has a slim lead over Biden, at about 1%. The 2021 “Bidenbucks” order is legally dubious in the eyes of Republicans, who have initiated investigations into the funding of a progressive-left group by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, which legislators claim swung the 2020 election in favor of Democrats. “Nonpartisan third-party organizations and state officials to perform voter registration services on agency premises.” The directive also instructs agencies to seek out and expedite approval of such groups.

Legislators and conservative legal experts disagree on whether the order is constitutional because it violates multiple federal laws. These include the Antideficiency Act, which prohibits federal agencies from spending more money than what Congress has authorized, and the Hatch Act, which limits government employees’ ability to participate in specific political activities.

Reviewing meeting notes obtained through separate records requests by the conservative Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project and the Foundation for Government Accountability, the Washington Examiner learned that attendees from activist groups deliberated on issues like making it a federal law to register voters in public housing and registering illegal immigrants. An effort to influence the result of future elections through the use of government resources, infrastructure, and reach is evident in the 2021 executive order, according to a memo last week from the Oversight Project.

Officials from several departments and agencies, including the DOJ and the EPO, as well as representatives from organizations like End Citizens United, the Democracy Fund, the Soros-backed Open Society Policy Center, and eBay founder Pierre Omidyar’s EPO all participated virtually in the 2021 meeting through the platform Zoom.

An attorney for the Foundation for Government Accountability named Stewart Whitson claimed that the proposed change to public housing shows the White House and left-wing groups are working together to use the illegal order to target disadvantaged people who are known to vote for Biden. Former left-wing Demos think tank employee and current Southern Poverty Law Center employee Laura Williamson brought up the housing concept at the 2021 meeting. According to Republican legislators, Democrats drafted a paper in 2020 that looked “almost similar” to Biden’s instructions.

The conference notes show a planned and hidden attempt by Biden to collaborate with progressives “to figure out a method to leverage government resources to strengthen Democratic political influence,” according to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), who agrees with other members.

“It’s entirely political in character, and it is utterly wrong,” Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN) told the Washington Examiner.
