“Russia interfered with our election. Attacked our democracy for the sole purpose of artificially placing someone at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue. They were successful,” Jeffries falsely claimed in a video unearthed by the Republican National Committee’s research team.
That same year, Jeffries tweeted that Trump tried to steal the election via Russian interference: “let’s be clear donald. The only person trying to steal the election is YOU. (and your buddies in the Kremlin)”. In 2018, he also falsely declared, “The more we learn about 2016 election the more ILLEGITIMATE it becomes. America deserves to know whether we have a FAKE President in the Oval Office #RussianInterference,” he tweeted.
Again in 2018, Jeffries claimed two Supreme Court seats were stolen because of Trump’s presidency, which nominated Supreme Court justices. “LIE (more than any administration in the history of the Republic.) CHEAT (2016 election/Russian Interference). STEAL (one or two Supreme Court seats). When will Republicans put country ahead of party? #CleanUpCorruption,” he said.
It’s not election denial, though, when Democrats do it.
