“Let me put this in context,” Jeffries said, referring to the Democrat push to provide the Postal Service with up to $25 billion in emergency funding, which Trump opposes. “This is the most corrupt administration in American history, and this is all part of a continuing conspiracy to subvert our free and fair elections. It started back in 2016 where, according to Bob Mueller himself, a lifetime Republican, the Trump campaign welcomed the foreign interference by the Russians, which was designed explicitly to artificially place him at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.” Completely false. The three-year Mueller investigation uncovered zero evidence of Russian election collusion.
Jeffries went on to falsely characterize the purported Ukraine “scandal” as Trump’s effort to smear the corrupt Joe Biden — also demonstrably false. “And now there’s this vicious effort in the middle of a pandemic to try to shut down the postal service so they can’t be universal mail-in voting,” he added.
Jeffries is pushing this narrative because his party desperately needs voting-by-mail to cheat in November.
