Rep. Schiff explained on MSNBC:
It could be a major part of a conspiracy to steal a person’s vote. And you can deprive a person of his vote by saying that his vote should not be counted.
It is clear that the President tries to stop the counting on election day because he knows that the absentee ballots are against him, and the attempt to get the election officials in the state to count the absentee ballots also has the effect of destroying the actual vote count. The American people, harming the voters, which can beat the prosecutors – or it can be the actions of the president and threaten the lives of election officials, robbing them of their right to do their jobs as voters, if the election officials inside are unmolested and without. fear of death. There are several ways that I think the facts would support such a case, but we will have to wait and see if those cases are used.
It would be appropriate if Trumpet they were accused of robbing the American people of their votes because that’s what Trump tried to do.
Donald Trump didn’t just protest the 2020 election. He tried to remove, or in his words, not count the votes of the people who voted for him in swing states.
Trump had no reason to try to remove the votes of Biden voters, except that they voted for Joe Biden.
What Trump tried to do was wrong, and the prosecution of trying to deprive the American people of their votes will protect democracy, and ensure that the voice of the voter is sacred.
