On Wednesday, Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ-05) requested that the House Oversight Committee investigate the claims made in the controversial election fraud documentary, “2000 Mules.”
The premise of “2000 Mules” is that thousands of individuals, or “mules,” delivered harvested ballots to election drop boxes in key states during the 2020 election. The documentary relied on geotracking data and 4 million minutes of ballot drop box video feed to arrive at this claim.
“2000 Mules” featured Arizona significantly. Notable testimony came from a San Luis whistleblower, who alleged that there was a network of harvesters that worked under what she described at length as the “Mexican Mafia” of Yuma County.
Biggs declared in a press release and on Twitter that the House Oversight Committee chairwoman, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY-12), had a duty to investigate the documentary’s claims.
The congressman pointed out in his request letter that Maloney held hearings on significant election-related issues of late — notably the Arizona Senate’s audit of the 2020 election and Texas’ voting laws — as well as social issues like flea and tick collars, the Washington Commanders football team, electric vehicles for the Postal Service, environmental justice, and vaping. Biggs declared that the latter collective of issues addressed was far less important than the “2000 Mules” claims.
“As the chairwoman of the House’s oversight committee, Congresswoman Maloney has an obligation to hold an immediate hearing to further determine the veracity of these claims,” said Biggs. “The film exposes serious, potentially illegal activity related to the 2020 election. The committee should investigate these allegations to ensure the integrity of our elections.”
The filmmaker behind “2000 Mules,” conservative pundit Dinesh D’Souza, holds that the 2020 election was thoroughly fraudulent and stolen from former President Donald Trump.
In his request letter, Biggs highlighted the documentary’s estimation that Phoenix had over 200 individuals who were potential mules that visited over 20 drop boxes each. He also mentioned the estimated numbers of mules from other states, noting that the total came to more than 54,000 individuals delivering votes to five drop boxes across four states.
Congresswoman Debbie Lesko (R-AZ-08) signed onto the letter, as well as Representatives Andrew Clyde (R-GA-09), Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA-14), Mary Miller (R-IL-15), Randy Weber (R-TX-14), Pete Sessions (R-TX-17), Lauren Boebert (R-CO-03), Byron Donalds (R-FL-19), and Diana Harshbarger (R-TN-01).
