Don't forget, TrumpRussia aside, that voting reform has to be addressed.

The voting machines are easily hacked, and ongoing voter suppression is a huge problem. Gerrymandering is a terrible problem.

This doesn't end with Cheeto, it starts with him. Things. Must. Change.

And 1.4 million more voted Democratic than GOP in the 2012 House election.

Yet we have a GOP majority.
That is undemocratic.

Voter suppression, "Crosscheck", and GOP SCOTUS trashing the Voter Rights Act are big problems too.

This is happening in the special elections now, and it will happen in elections next year. If it is not addressed, then we don't stand a chance of giving Russiagate a decent look in let alone prosecuting the criminals in the WH and congress.

GOP wants Election Day to be a work day so workers have trouble voting. Retirees vote GOP. Hard working blue collar Americans vote Dem.
