    Anna Moneymaker-Pool/Getty Images Senator Josh Hawley has come under serious criticism in the weeks following the riots at the Capitol building, particularly over his continuing to raise objections to the election results even after the riots. During the Senate hearing on the riots Tuesday, Hawley railed against some comments that people in law enforcement leadership were “complicit” in the attacks. Hawley was referring in particular to comments from Ret. Lt. Gen. Russell Honoré — who was chosen by Speaker Nancy Pelosi to lead a review of Capitol security — in comments days after the riot saying, “I’ve just never seen so much incompetence, so they’re either that stupid, or ignorant, or they’re complicit. I think they were complicit.” At one point Tuesday afternoon, one reporter asked Hawley about people saying he himself is complicit. The senator, per CNN’s Manu Raju, responded by saying, “That’s outrageous. I would say that’s absolutely outrageous...
    Appearing this Saturday on TBN’s Huckabee, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said he objected to the Electoral College certification of the 2020 presidential election because he wanted Congress to investigate allegations of voter fraud, adding that it’s a “total lie” to accuse him of attempting to overturn the contest for the White House. (Watch from 1:07) "Im not willing to bow to the liberal, woke mob." This weekend Senator Josh Hawley FIRES BACK at the radical lefts agenda. Tune in at 8/7c this Saturday! ???????? pic.twitter.com/L9xVuZYUyo — Huckabee (@HuckabeeOnTBN) February 5, 2021 A transcript is as follows: MIKE HUCKABEE: There was a sense in which people said you were trying to overturn the election. If they listened carefully, they would know that you, Senator Cruz, and others, were not trying to overturn an election, but to simply audit the election to see if everything was on the up and up. Why is it that simple...
    Seven Democrats asked the Senate Ethics Committee on Thursday to launch an investigation into Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley to probe and “fully understand their role” in the Jan. 6 riots, reported the Associated Press.  The seven Democratic Senators sent a letter Thursday to incoming Senate Ethics Committee Chairman Chris Coons and Vice-Chairman James Lankford.

Richard Blumenthal, Democratic Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, Democratic Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono, Democratic Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown and Democratic Minnesota Sen.

    Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) responded to Joe Biden’s statement comparing him and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels Friday by calling upon Democrat members of Congress to “be asked to disavow” Biden’s “disgusting comments.” A press statement from Hawley’s office referred to Biden’s comparison as “undignified, immature, and intemperate behavior”: President-elect Biden has just compared me and another Republican Senator to Nazis. You read that correctly. Think about that for a moment. Let it sink in. Because I raised questions in the format prescribed by the laws of the United States about the way elections were conducted in the state of Pennsylvania, just as Democrats did about other states in 2001, 2005, and 2017, he is calling me a Nazi. This is undignified, immature, and intemperate behavior from the President-elect. It is utterly shameful. He should act like a dignified adult and retract these sick comments. And...
    Fox News’ Bret Baier grilled Senator Josh Hawley over the stunt he and other Republicans are engaging in to object to the election results when Congress takes them up on Wednesday. Baier directly asked Hawley if his ultimate goal here is to overturn the election and keep President Donald Trump in the White House. Hawley said he just wants to “raise concerns” from people in his state. After weeks and weeks of the president and his allies telling people they shouldn’t trust the results, Republicans have been touting the number of Trump voters who don’t trust the results. Hawley said objecting on Wednesday is his chance to stand up and speak for them.” Martha MacCallum asked him if he’s not expecting to change the actual outcome of the election. Hawley didn’t directly answer, instead just saying he’s raising concerns about “allegations of irregularity.” In state after state, the Trump team’s...
    Mitch McConnell told fellow Senate Republicans that his vote to certify Joe Biden's election victory will be the 'most consequential' of his political career, a new report claims.  The Majority Leader made the declaration in a conference call on Thursday morning, according to Axios, which spoke to one person who was on the call and two who were briefed on its contents.   'I'm finishing 36 years in the Senate and I've cast a lot of big votes,' one source paraphrased McConnell as saying. 'And in my view, just my view, this will be the most consequential I have ever cast.' He referred to the vote as a 'vote of conscience', the source said, adding: 'The context was McConnell saying we're being asked to overturn the results after a guy didn't get as many electoral votes and lost by 7 million popular votes.'  The call came one day after Missouri Sen...
    Joe Scarborough did not refrain from asking the nation the tough questions Monday morning following a slew of conservative-media based stories questioning the political biases of social media companies. The Morning Joe host asked if Senator Josh Hawley is “the stupidest person to walk through the halls of congress or the most disingenuous.” At issue is Senator Hawley’s recent suggestion that American citizens should be able to sue Facebook and Twitter for blocking the sharing of a curiously sourced New York Post report about emails revealed from an unclaimed laptop that is alleged to have belonged to Hunter Biden. Scarborough paraphrased Hawley’s comments, saying “He said, we have a problem, we need to censor Facebook,” before adding with surprise “Really, Josh?” “Oh, you’re a conservative. And you have a right to censor a private company?” he asked before admitting that he too had problems with Mark Zuckerberg and that Facebook should be...
    Senator Josh Hawley, a Republican who closely follows tech issues, pressed Twitter Chief Executive Jack Dorsey on Friday on whether a company employee had been paid to assist with a hack of high-profile accounts this week aimed at scamming readers.

In his letter, Hawley asked Dorsey if there was evidence that a Twitter employee was involved in the hack. If...

    Bradley Cortright July 16, 2020 0 Comments A recent cyberattack that targeted several prominent Twitter users is sparking fears about the platform’s security and the safety of users’ data. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) penned a letter to Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey to inquire about the hack and if users’ personal data was stolen. “As I write, Twitter seems to be experiencing a large-scale cyberattack, as illustrated by a number of posts inviting users to transfer Bitcoin under fraudulent pretenses,” Hawley wrote. He noted that some of the prominent accounts affected by the hack included former President Barack Obama, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, billionaire Elon Musk, Apple, and Uber. Hawley said he was concerned that the hack was not just “a coordinate set of separate hacking incidents but rather a successful attack on the security of Twitter itself.” He went on to ask Twitter to contact the Department of...
