Rep Adam Schiff has made it clear — Trump must be stopped at all costs or it could cost people their constitutional right to vote. According to reports, Schiff appeared on MSNBC on Monday whereas he admitted that House Intelligence officials have a deep-seated concern that Trump will buoy the election for millions-of-Americans.
“I’m more worried he will try to disenfranchise millions of Americans than that he will try to put off the election. He’s already talking down absentee voting, making false claims about the reliability of absentee voting even when he votes by absentee himself,” the California Democrat said.
“But he has openly admitted — and it’s rather startling to hear him say out in the open — that he believes that more Americans vote, more would participate in our democracy, he and other Republicans can’t get elected. That may very well be true, but that is not a reason to disenfranchise people. It’s a reason to change their platform,” he continued.
When asked about the wide-ranging opposition to mail voting in the U.S, Schiff didn’t fester his response.
“I do think that like they tried in Wisconsin, the Republicans may try to force people to choose their vote or their health,” Schiff said. “And we need to insist, and I think needs to be a very important point in terms of protecting the health care of our democracy, we need to insist that every American in the fall if they choose to do so, has easy access to voting-by-mail with a postage-paid ballot. Because we can’t preserve the health of our country if we allow democracy to be destroyed.”
