“The president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box,” said Adam Schiff last week. “For we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.”
The message was clear: impeach Trump or he’ll steal the 2020 election.
If you ask Democrats, anytime they’ve lost an election it was not lost fairly. In 2000, George W. Bush “stole” Florida. In 2004, he “stole” Ohio. In 2016, Russia got Trump elected. Any high-profile election loss by a Democrat in a race they thought they would win is met by a cacophony of accusations of voter suppression, foreign interference, vote tampering… you name the excuse, they’ll throw it out there hoping it will stick. Many Democrats, including presidential candidates, give credence to the conspiracy theory that Stacey Abrams had the Georgia gubernatorial stolen from her, because of, you guessed it, voter suppression.
For all the Democrats’ bellyaching about 2016 and now about 2020, it should not be lost on the American public that there is far more evidence that the IRS’s targeting of conservative and Tea Party groups helped Obama win reelection in 2012 than there is evidence that Trump colluded with Russia, or is trying to “steal” the 2020 election [Bold type, mine].
