Monica Lewinsky’s Twitter account is a treasure trove of hits and her newest remarks to Sen Ron Johnson isn’t any exception.
On Wednesday, the Self-importance Honest contributor supplied her two cents in response to a video of Mr Johnson that went viral on Tuesday. Within the video, Mr Johnson is seen responding to some incendiary claims made about his workplace throughout Tuesday’s January 6 committee listening to and their dealing with of an envelope containing details about a faux electors scheme.
Mr Johnson tells reporters within the video that the envelope in query was seemingly handed alongside to then-vice president Mike Pence by “anyone from the Home, some employees intern, you understand, mentioned we received to, the vice chairman wants this or no matter.”
“I wasn’t concerned. I don’t know what they mentioned. However, however, however anyone from the Home delivered to a employees member in my workplace, my chief of employees referred to as the vice chairman, ‘hey, we received this.’ And the vice chairman mentioned ‘don’t ship it,’ and we didn’t,” he says.
Notable former intern herself, Ms Lewinsky quote-tweeted the video with an professional quip: “dude. don’t blame the intern.”
Ms Lewinsky’s response is unimaginable for a myriad of causes, not least of which due to how questionable Mr Johnson’s remarks are.
Through the January 6 committee listening to on Tuesday, textual content messages between Sean Riley, Wisconsin Republican Sen Ron Johnson’s chief of employees, and Chris Hodgson, then-Vice President Mike Pence’s legislative director, have been revealed and Riley explicitly says in them that “Johnson wants at hand one thing to VPOTUS please advise.” He goes on to say the merchandise is an “various slate of electors for MI and WI as a result of archivist didn’t obtain them.”
Mr Hodgson then suggested Mr Riley to “not give that” to Mr Pence.
When pressed on why he didn’t ask extra questions on this checklist of alternate electors, Mr Johnson merely insisted that he by no means delivered the merchandise and that this whole state of affairs is a “non-story.” He doesn’t point out how anybody wound up with the paperwork or determine the alleged intern he’s claiming was a part of this ordeal.
