The letter was addressed to committee chair Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and was also signed by Reps. Dan Bishop (R-NC), Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Andrew Clyde (R-GA), Byron Donalds (R-FL), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Diana Harshbarger (R-TN), Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), Mary Miller (R-IL), Pete Sessions (R-TX), and Randy Weber (R-TX),
Biggs said the troubling claims made in the film must be investigated. He told Maloney that the Committee on Oversight and Reform should hold hearings immediately to look into the potentially illegal acts depicted and described in the film.
2000 Mules was produced by conservative political commentator Dinesh D’Souza and a group of conservative media activists. The file documents ballot-harvesting activities by Democrat “mules” who were paid to stuff election boxes with questionable ballots leading up to and on Election Day in 2020.
Biggs noted in his letter that ballot harvesting as shown in the film is illegal in several states. He told Maloney that since she has led the committee, it has conducted hearings questioning the Arizona audit of the 2020 election and voting laws in Texas.
He noted the panel has spent “significant time and resources” conducting hearings on electric vehicles for the Postal Service, the Washington Commanders professional football team, flea and tick animal collars, vaping, and “environmental justice.” Biggs said the election fraud described in 2000 Mules is “far more serious than the aforementioned topics.”
The documentary was released online in May and took in more than $1 million in the first 12 hours it was available. It grossed over $750,000 in ticket sales during the first weekend of its theatrical release.
A survey by Rasmussen Reports indicates that 77% of those who saw the movie say it made them more convinced that the 2020 election was plagued with systematic and widespread fraud.
Maloney has not issued a public statement to date regarding Biggs’ demand for committee hearings.
