“For those to challenge the results and question the integrity of the election. No other election has ever been held under such scrutiny, and such high standards. The ‘big lie’ is just that: A big lie… That’s not statesmanship. That’s selfishness. That’s not democracy – it’s the denial of the right to vote. It suppresses it. It subjugates it. The denial of free and fair elections is the most un-American thing that any of us can imagine. The most undemocratic, the most unpatriotic and sadly not unprecedented.” U.S. President Joe Biden, (D-Scranton)
Sep 26, 2019 – Hillary Clinton dismissed President Trump as an “illegitimate president” and suggested that “he knows” that he stole the 2016 presidential election in a CBS News interview to be aired Sunday.
Feb 4, 2021 – As political pollster Rasmussen tweeted Wednesday, a lot of voters agree with Trump that the election process in America is deeply flawed: “Almost half of ALL VOTERS are concerned about US election integrity: – President Trump left office w/ a job approval of 51%. – 47% of ALL VOTERS believe there was election fraud in Nov 2020. – 45% of ALL VOTERS want a debate on election integrity.”
In a normal America, does a defeated presidential incumbent pose such a threat to the party in power that he must be impeached after leaving office, to ensure he doesn’t win back the White House in four years?
A normal, secure, sensible Congress would be moving to make sure voting is trustworthy, installing safeguards to reassure those with doubts. But we don’t have a normal, secure, sensible Congress. That’s too bad for everybody.
