Donald Trump, his campaign, and his party operations are conspiring to suppress voter turnout in areas with his populations of people of color. And while it is a serious conspiracy, it is no conspiracy theory given the candidate's own rhetoric on the campaign trail imploring his cadre of racist rally-goers to "watch" polling places in urban neighborhoods.
State Democratic Parties in Pennsylvania, Nevada, Arizona and Ohio have all filed civil actions in Courts seeking to bar Donald Trump's campaign and supporting PACs from interfering with the most fundamental of all of our democratic rights: the right to vote. All point to a Trump campaign operative confessing to active voter suppression operations to bully, intimidate and to the extent possible, disenfranchise people of color.
The facts in this are clear: not only is there political operatives inside and outside the Republican party planning to intimidate voters who are unlikely to vote for their candidate, outrageously, the candidate himself has been loudly and proudly calling for such tactics to be undertaken.
So, why isn't Dir. Comey writing open letters to Congress about investigations into a coordinated federal criminal conspiracy to deprive certain American citizens of their right to vote?
Or the fact that a United States senator is openly calling for (I'm sorry, "joking about") assassinating a woman who is not merely a major party candidate for president but also a former Secretary of State, senator, and First Lady?
Or the explosive new report that a server at the Trump Tower was secretly and nearly exclusively communicating with a Russian bank, coming on the heels of news that it was none other than Director Comey who blocked the FBI's assent to an intelligence community consensus about Russian hacking into American systems, out of supposed concern about appearing partisan?
Like what you read? Chip in, keep us going.
