The DOJ’s investigation would complement Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s more than 250 investigations into voter irregularities and fraud cases, the representatives explained in a letter to Attorney General William Barr.
There is enough evidence supporting Raffensperger’s investigation to warrant a federal investigation as well, they said.
“The evidence is overwhelming that Georgia’s election process has been corrupted by voter fraud and election theft,” Brooks said in a statement. “The perpetrators of these heinous acts must be investigated, and, as appropriate, prosecuted to the fullest.”
He cited a recent video that shows suitcases of ballots being counted in a Georgia vote-counting facility after Republican poll watchers left for the night.
Some of the other Republicans who signed Brooks’s letter include: Reps. Jody Hice of Georgia, Paul Gosar and Andy Biggs of Arizona, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Louie Gohmert of Texas, and Rep.-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.
Earlier this week, two other House Republicans asked Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate these voter irregularities and more.
“The American people deserve a definitive resolution to the uncertainty hovering over the outcome of our election, but legitimate questions of voter fraud remain unanswered,” Rep. Lance Gooden, R-Texas, wrote in a letter to Barr.
Handing this investigation over to an independent, third-party would ensure that it is properly and thoroughly investigated, Gooden added.
“The appointment of a Special Counsel would establish a team of investigators whose sole responsibility is to uncover the truth and provide the certainty America needs,” he said.
In addition to seeking the multiple levels of investigation, Brooks revealed this week he may challenge the Electoral College’s results, noting that the limitations of the legal system obligated elected officials to exercise their own constitutionally delegated powers.
“It is extremely difficult in a court of law to determine how many illegal votes were cast and who they were cast for,” Brooks said. “And that is one of the reasons why the FBI, the Justice Department and the federal judiciary are wholly inadequate for handling this issue.”
