For the renowned American lawyer, legal scholar, writer, commentator, and legal analyst in broadcast and print journalism, Johnathan Turley, a federal commission is needed to investigate the alleged fraudulent presidential elections of 2020, which generated so much division among voters.
“An honest-to-God, no-holds-barred federal commission to look into the 2020 presidential election,” Turley said, differentiating it from what he calls ‘placebo commissions’ used in Washington to deal with scandals, and for which no one is guilty, according to his Jan. 7 article.
Turley then listed the reasons that make the proposed commission necessary, beginning with the investigation of the unusual massive use of postal voting, and in particular how it worked in the smaller towns.
The high percentage of people convinced that the elections were fraudulent is an indicator of the need for the commission.
President Donald Trump cited that 92 percent of Republicans believed that the electoral process had been adulterated.

In addition, Turley emphasized the fact that most of the fraud claims were not studied, but were dismissed because of issues such as being filed too late.
“Those allegations need to be conclusively proven or disproven in the interests of the country,” he said.
Finally, Turley pointed to irregularities such as uncounted votes, loss of key custodial information, and significant differences in voting and tabulation rules.
The Federal Commission, “It should be formed on a commitment of absolute transparency with public hearings and public archiving of underlying material before the issuance of any final report,” said Turley.
He added, “That way, the public at large can analyze and contribute to the review of this evidence.”
Certainly President Trump launched an insistent judicial effort, mainly demanding that only legal votes be counted and illegal ones eliminated, thus giving transparency to the electoral process, which he was not allowed to do.
Given the large amounts of evidence of fraud, which went so far as to involve foreign powers in harmful electoral interference, President Trump rejected the election certification.
Although Vice President Mike Pence was expected to postpone the certification for 10 days to thoroughly investigate the scandalous events, his refusal caused President Trump to agree to a peaceful transition.
