I so old I remember when the president’s focus in the run-up to elections was to encourage voting, not discourage it.
The actual information presented about efforts to influence US elections has been of Russian interests attempting to meddle with the midterms, not voter fraud. Regardless, Trump’s focus is on demonizing immigrants — like always — by focusing on the rare happening of voter fraud.
Trump has tweeted nothing about yesterday’s joint announcement from ODNI, DOJ, FBI, & DHS about concerns of foreign influence in US elections, or yesterday’s complaint against a Russian woman alleged of working currently with the Russian groups already under indictment for 2016.
Here’s my story on that —> Federal Prosecutors File The First Charges Alleging 2018 Russian Election Interference…
Meanwhile, SCOTUS is in a holding pattern on DOJ’s request to stop depositions of Ross and Gore in the lawsuit challenging the Census citizenship questionnaire (and the depositions are on hold while that request is pending)—another step that could negatively impact immigrants.
And a person who ties all of this together? #KSGov GOP candidate Kris Kobach, who has been pushing a similar attack on voter fraud to POTUS and was running (w Pence) Trump’s defunct voter fraud commission — and spoke w Commerce folks pushing the citizenship questionnaire.
