We are barely past the 2020 election and already Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer are plotting to steal the 2024 election.
And they have no problem admitting it.
Here is Pelosi, her appearance on 60 Minutes written up by The Washington Examiner, bold print for emphasis supplied:
“In a 60 Minutes interview on Sunday, Lesley Stahl asked Pelosi a question by raising the prospect that ‘after all of this, there’s no punishment, no consequence, and he could run again for president.’
Pelosi acknowledged the possibility, saying, ‘And that’s one of the motivations that people have for advocating for impeachment.’”
And here is Schumer, as headlined in The Washington Examiner:
Schumer: Trump must be blocked from running for president again
The Schumer story says this:
“Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said the Senate must convict President Trump of an impeachment charge in order to bar him using the prospect of a 2024 campaign to “poison the public arena” for the new Democratic White House and Congress.
‘After what he has done, the consequences of which we were all witness to, Donald Trump should not be eligible to run for office ever again,’ the New York Democrat said Tuesday.
Schumer made clear during his floor speech Tuesday that the goal of an impeachment trial is to stop Trump from seeking office in 2024.”
In an appearance on Mark Levin’s Fox show Life, Liberty and Levin, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley effectively answered Schumer by saying this, as reported over at Newsmax:
“Democrats are seizing the Republicans’ Electoral College objections and the storming of the Capitol, using the ‘lie’ to grab ‘power,’ according to Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., on Sunday.
…Democrats are twisting the reasonable concerns of election fraud and the constitutional objection of the Electoral College certification, he continued.
‘What the liberals have said is, ‘Because you did that, you effectively incited violence [Jan. 6],’ Hawley told host Mark Levin. ‘That’s a lie. They know it’s a lie. They said, ‘He wanted to overturn the election.’ That’s a lie. They know that it’s a lie.’
‘They said that you know, ‘It’s equivalent to a violent insurrection, the objection you raised.’ That’s a lie. They know that it’s a lie.’
‘I think what we’re seeing now is an attempt by the left to lie about our motivations, to lie about our actions in order to grab power.’”
Hawley has it exactly right.
Pelosi and Schumer are pushing the stark, deliberate lie that the former President, Hawley and Senator Ted Cruz incited the Capitol riot. And they are using that lie in an attempt to steal the 2024 election by denying the American people their right to vote for the candidate of their choice. Which is to say, denying Trump his constitutional right to run again if he so chooses.
This is, as Senator Hawley has said, nothing but a blatant power grab. An attempt to stay in power in perpetuity by rigging an election so that a popular candidate is denied his right to run for president if he so chooses.
The real question here should be when will the House and Senate censure Pelosi and Schumer for their bold attempt to steal an election by rigging it – not to mention doing it a full three years before the election has even begun.
