Senator Ron Johnson caught making a fake phone call to avoid phony questions to voters

Faced with burning questions about exposing that he was trying to hand over false election documents to then-Vice President Mike Pence, Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) decided to fake a phone call.

He got caught up in it too.

reporter for NBC News Frank Thorpe V spotted a Wisconsin Republican as he left the Capitol building on Tuesday. Earlier in the day, a House committee investigating the January 6, 2021 Capitol attack aired condemning texts sent by Johnson Chief of Staff Sean Riley to a Pence staffer saying the senator wanted to convey to the vice president “[a]”alternate voter roll” are fake election documents used to promote the idea that former President Donald Trump won states he actually lost.

“What did you know about what your chief of staff was doing with the alternate electoral slates?” Thorp asked Johnson, as shown in the video of the meeting.

“I’m on the phone right now,” Johnson said, pointing to the device and waving his hand dismissively at Thorpe.

“No, it’s not,” Thorp replied. “I see your phone. I see your screen.”

Caught in the act, Johnson nonetheless continued the ruse by holding the phone to his ear in a one-way silent conversation with no one.

After 30 awkward seconds, the senator put down his phone without saying a word to tell reporters that the apparent bomb was “complete nonsense.”

“I don’t know what’s bothering you here,” he said.

Johnson denied knowledge of what happened between his chief of staff and Mike Pence’s staff, saying he had no idea the falsified election papers “were even delivered to us.”
