FEC chair calls on Trump to provide evidence of NH voter fraud

Source: The Hill

The chairwoman of the Federal Election Commission (FEC) is demanding that President Trump either provide evidence to support his claim that he would have won New Hampshire's electoral votes in 2016 if not for voter fraud, or cease mentioning the claim.

Chairwoman Ellen Weintraub, a Democrat, wrote in a letter to the president reported by CNN that Trump risks "undermining the faith" of the American electorate in the fairness of U.S. elections. "Your voter-fraud allegations run the risk of undermining that faith," she wrote, according to CNN. "To put in terms a former casino operator should understand," Weintraub added, "there comes a time when you need to lay your cards on the table or fold."

Weintraub's letter to the White House came a day after the president told supporters at a New Hampshire campaign rally that it wasn't their "fault" that he had lost the state in 2016, while insinuating that the state had been "taken" from his campaign.

Trump said "we should have won" New Hampshire, asserting, "It was taken away from us" and telling audience members that it was "not your fault." Trump was edged out in 2016 in the state by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D), who won the state by a few thousand votes.

13. Except is not just talk. It's yet more rhetoric from the President that encourages violence.

 

It's not just bad manners for Trump to claim the election was rigged in 2016, and to prepare to do it again if he loses the election in 2020. It further fuels his grievance driven base toward insane rage, and that rage doesn't just go nowhere. It goes into violence all over the country. Not just the national news we see, but all across local communities. Every time Trump turns around he is inciting people to violence.

Again, its not just idle rantings of a lunatic. It's not harmless. And its going to get worse.

15. For mass voter fraud to occur in a Red State....

... every Republican poll watcher would have to have sold out to the Democrats. Every Republican registrar, every Republican clerk of courts.

Polls have representatives from both parties. Why are the Republican officials doing this?

20. Yes! Hey, MSM, there's a big difference between "He said X" and. ..

... "He said X, which is not true." You should do more of the latter .
