The Wisconsin investigation into the 2020 Election led by former Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman will continue till April. A new contract has been signed allowing Gableman to continue his work.
The AP reports:
Wisconsin’s Republican Assembly speaker signed a new contract Tuesday with Michael Gableman, the former state Supreme Court justice he hired to investigate the 2020 election, extending his review through the end of April.
The extension comes after the original contract expired on Dec. 31 and a week after Gableman delivered a widely panned report that called for the Legislature to take a serious look at decertifying President Joe Biden’s win in the battleground state.
It also comes the same day that a judge ordered the release of 700 pages of documents under the state’s open records law, which he said do not support conclusions made in Gableman’s latest report or that there has been much of an investigation at all.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, who hired Gableman and extended his contract, told The Associated Press that the emphasis going forward is on resolving the pending litigation and supplementing the report that was submitted last week.
“It’s not necessarily looking for additional things to investigate,” Vos said. “We’re just trying to complete the investigation on many of the issues that were raised in the report.”
Former President Donald Trump issued a statement praising Vos for “standing by” Gableman.
Under the terms of the new contract, Gableman will be able to continue to fight a series of lawsuits attempting to block his subpoenas of mayors and election officials at both the state and local level. Once the lawsuits are over, the contract calls for Gableman to consult with Vos about whether more investigation is warranted or the probe should end.
It’s ridiculous that this audit work in Wisconsin has taken so long. It took months before Gableman was hired to the task and then once he got going, he’s been stalled by every means possible. Some of his subpoenas have been totally ignored by various cities under investigation.
Gableman explained on Tucker the situation in Wisconsin.
A week earlier Gableman expressed his recommendation to decertify the 2020 Election results in Wisconsin.
