Democratic Congressman and presidential impeachment ringleader Adam Schiff said on MSNBC Sunday that his party must insist that “every American” have easy access to voting by mail.
Schiff said of President Trump, “I’m more worried he will try to disenfranchise millions of Americans then 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.”

‘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’
“But he has openly admitted, and it is rather startling to hear him say out in the open, that he believes that’s more Americans vote, more would participate in our democracy, and he and other Republicans couldn’t get elected,” Schiff said.
“That may very well be true, but that is not a reason to disenfranchise people,” Schiff continued. “It’s a reason to change their platform. But I do think that like they tried in Wisconsin, the Republicans may try to force people to choose their vote or our health 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.”
Dream on, Schiff.

“Because we can’t preserve the health of our country if we allow democracy to be destroyed,” Schiff finished.
Pelosi Pushes Mail-In Ballots Too
The Political Insider reported Wednesday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that a “chunk of money” will be designated in the next COVID-19 stimulus bill that will allow Americans to vote by mail.
Democrats will demand mail-in voting measures in next economic relief package, says @SpeakerPelosi.

Pelosi said, “They have also told us 24/7 the Russians are still at work trying to undermine our election. That is why we have to have an important chunk of money in this next bill that will enable us to protect the integrity of our elections, as well as enable the American people to vote by mail, especially at this time of a health danger in going to the polls.”
Voting by mail has become a Democratic theme. Would you trust this kind of system to determine the next President of the United States?
Do you trust Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi and their party in pushing this so strenuously?
We don’t either.
