Just before Joe Biden''s election victory on January 6, 2021, Wisconsin senator Ron Johnson was accused recently of providing phony electors for Donald Trump.
According to the most recent session of the January 6 committee, Johnson allegedly tried to send fake election papers to then-Vice President Mike Pence.
Casey Lucier, the House committee''s investigative counsel in an eight-minute video earlier this week, covered more detail on the charges against Johnson, and talked about the various occasions he allegedly tried to disrupt the US Presidential Elections.
Lucier stated that the White House Counsels Office did not take these attempts into account. He supported the claims with the exchange of several letters between Johnson and Pences'' respective advisers.
Senator Ron Johnson sat down and organized the transfer of fictitious Trump electors to former Vice President Mike Pence on January 6, 2021, before the Congress approved the 2020 electors, and decided the election in Joe Bidens'' favor.
Sean Riley, the committee''s top adviser, wrote to Chris Hodgson, the legislator director of the Pences, telling him that the senator must provide something to the President of the United States.
According to Jefferson, Trump''s campaign personnel tried to send fake electors to Washington before January 6 according to the second set of letters to Wisconsin Republican Party Executive Director Mark Jefferson on January 4.
Trump admonestrates want someone to send original voter papers to the Senate President.

Despite the fact that he did not vote with the other 139 Republicans to the public opinion, Ron Johnson took over a debate in December 2020 where Trump supporters spread misinformation about the 2020 election.
Johnson was accused in March 2021 of attempting to slander and conspiracy against Biden, which happened before the most recent incident. He was then charged with submining the outcome of the 2020 election, which is a violation of the 14th Amendment disqualification clause.

According to Johnsons spokesperson Alexa Henning, the senator was not involved in the formation of false electors, and had no previous knowledge of the paper they received as soon as the election became public.
Ron Johnson wrote in his interview with CNN that he didn''t know much about the alternative electors:
I was aware that this package was delivered, and that somebody wanted us to provide it, so we reached out to the Pences office.
The chair of the committees informed the publication that Johnson has not been interviewed by the authorities due to the dispute over the phoney electors. It hasn''t been ruled out whether to ask the senator to testify on the matter, according to reports.
