‘A Partisan Exercise’: Ron Johnson Says Democrats Are Using Jan. 6 Hearings To Distract From Policy Failures | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This older, but yet to be published post is finally being presented now as an archivable history of the current events of these days that will become the real history of tomorrow.

    Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) said Tuesday that the ongoing January 6 committee hearings were designed by Democrats to distract from the "disastrous result of their policies."

    Johnson, who is seeking a third term as senator, said that the hearings were a "partisan exercise", and pointed to high inflation, President Biden's border policies, and rising crime as consequences of Democratic policies.

    "It's obvious that the Democrats set this thing up to be a political exercise, obviously designed to distract the public from the major problems occurring because of their agenda, their ideology. They can't talk about the disastrous result of their policies, so this is really the only thing they can talk about," Johnson told The Daily Wire in a phone interview.

    The Wisconsin Republican also said the committee was designed to be political and that it should question House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) about the Capitol riot.

    "One question they'll never ask, one witness they'll never call, is Nancy Pelosi," Johnson stated. "Why were we so unprepared? Where was the security manpower? Why wasn't it visible? Why didn't we prevent the breach? The breach never should have happened."

    Although Johnson does not yet know who his Democratic challenger will be for the Midterm Election, he predicts that the race will go down to the wire. The Democratic primary is set for August 9, and Johnson will likely face on-leave Milwaukee Bucks executive Alex Lasry, Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes (D-WI), or State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski (D-WI).

    "This U.S. Senate race is crucial if we want to gain the majority, if we want to stop the Biden agenda," Johnson said, adding that Democrat policies were to blame for record gas prices and baby formula shortages.

    If Republicans take back the Senate in 2022, Johnson said that they "need to stop the Biden agenda that is destroying our country, and do anything [we] possibly can as a legislature to end his destructive agenda."

    His agenda for 2025, should Republicans gain control of the White House and both chambers, would include supporting law enforcement, increasing funding for the military, pursuing energy independence, creating a simpler tax code, and cutting back on deficit spending.

    Johnson also said that more people need to be brought into the workforce, noting that manufacturers in Wisconsin were struggling to find workers.

    Until he officially knows what Democrat will challenge him in November, Johnson said his current opponent was the media.

    "I have the worst opponent, which is the mainstream media. Incredibly biased coverage, they are carrying the lies and distortions of the Democrats for them, creating headlines that can be used against me in the future," he said.
