...We will use all existing provisions in the voting rights act, The National voter registration act, to help America vote act and the uniform and overseas citizens absentee voting act to ensure that we protect every qualified American seeking to participate in our democracy.

NEW: Extremism experts & veterans say the @DeptofDefense & @USArmy's decision not to recall Lieutenant General (ret) Michael Flynn for a court-martial over his call for a Myanmar-style military coup amounts to ignoring a dangerous national security threat. independent.co.uk/voices/flynn-q…
