Wednesday on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said he believes Iran and Russia are trying to undermine confidence in American elections, “similar, in a different way of course, than what President Trump is doing.”
“I did receive a classified briefing this afternoon on this, and so I can’t discuss the details, but I can tell you one thing,” Schumer told host Rachel Maddow. “It was clear to me that the intent of Iran in this case, and Russia in many more cases, is to sow — to basically undermine confidence in our elections. This was — this action I do not believe was aimed — from my surmise, was aimed at discrediting President Trump…
“It was, rather done to undermine confidence in our elections, aimed at Democrats, Republicans, independents, that people — what Iran and Russia — and by the way, Russia is far worse of a culprit than Iran on these things and should be focused on — but what they try to do, what they’re trying to do here is… similar, in a different way of course, than what President Trump is doing, undermine confidence in our elections.”
Again, with the narrative about foreign election interference. The fact is that the Democrats want to undermine confidence in the upcoming election because they know Trump will win.
