For more than a year, the left has accused Donald Trump of undermining the sanctity of the US election by promoting “The Big Lie,” meaning the 2020 election was stolen. But on Wednesday, with his favorite “suffrage” bill in Congress, thanks to two balanced Democrats siding with Republicans, President Joe Biden was questioning the legitimacy of the US election.
In a lengthy press conference, Biden suggested that passing the bill, which among other things would ensure federal control over elections, was the only thing that would legitimize the 2022 congressional elections. “I’m not saying that it will be legitimate. The increase in the prospect of being illegitimate is directly proportional to the fact that we are not able to push through these reforms,” Biden said. , which in many ways are more lax than the election laws in Biden’s home state of Delaware. In another question about the election, Biden added, “Well, it all depends on our ability to present to the American people the case that part of this was created to try to alter the outcome of the election.
In short, the Democratic argument will be that the Republicans undermine the elections, for example by requiring an identity document to vote. However, Biden then torpedoed the repeated discussion of voter suppression by himself, Vice President Kamala Harris and congressional Democrats in an effort to implement America’s aggressive and scrutiny of voting.
“Remember how we thought not that many people were going to show up to vote in the middle of the pandemic,” he said, “and [we] had the highest voter turnout in the history of the United States of America?”
Harris echoed critical points – which are wide open as investigations show that Republicans become better to regain the Congress to control this fall.
When asked by CNN reporter if the 2022 elections will be illegitimate unless the Democrats’ voting agenda passed, she replied, “Let’s get these bills passed before we have that conversation.”
“Biden refused to say that the election results in these midterms in November would be legitimate. He refused it,” said CNN’s Jake Tapper.
