First Debate Preview: Moderator Chris Wallace To Grill Trump, Biden about SCOTUS

Published

“Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace, who will moderate next Tuesday’s presidential debate, grilled Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) Sunday on his show about the senator’s past comments regarding election-year Supreme Court appointments and how he has since changed his views.

This interview could foreshadow how the veteran news anchor will likely not hold back in his questioning of both President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden on the contentious issue of replacing the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg following her Friday passing.

“Why would we squelch the voice of the people?” Cotton said on the Senate floor following the 2016 death of Justice Antonin Scalia, in the clip that Wallace played. “Why would we deny the voters a chance to weigh in on the makeup of the Supreme Court?”

After playing the clip, Wallace asked Cotton, “You don’t see any hypocrisy between that position then and this position now?”

Cotton, deflecting, then said, “Chris, the Senate majority is performing our constitutional duty and fulfilling the mandate that the voters gave us in 2016 and especially in 2018.”

While Republicans have just secured enough senators to ensure that the appointment process will proceed before the election, with Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) announcing his support Tuesday morning via Twitter, the issue remains controversial as Nov., 3 nears. Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) are the only two Republican senators to come out in favor of waiting until after the election to fill the Supreme Court vacancy.

In the wake of Justice Ginsburg’s death, and of the renewed Supreme Court issue, this interview sends a warning to both President Donald Trump and Joe Biden that they should be prepared to answer for any past statements on the matter.

The debate will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, and is scheduled to air from 9 to 10:30 pm (Eastern Standard Time).

Search Warrants Served at AZ Nonprofit in Connection to 2020 ‘Ballot Trafficking Election Scandal’

Published

Search warrants were served to an employee at a Yuma, Arizona nonprofit organization in connection to illegal ballot trafficking.

The ballot trafficking scheme was investigated in True The Vote and Dinesh D’Souza’s recent documentary “2000 Mules.” The documentary makes the claim that the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen by illegal ballot trafficking done through nonprofit organizations.

The ballot trafficking scheme was discovered by residents in Yuma County, and the documentary features the undercover investigative work of David Lara and Arizona State Senate candidate Gary Snyder as well as the investigations of Catherine Engelbrecht and Gregg Phillips.

“18 months ago, we knew that when the full story was told about Yuma County, Arizona, it would reveal systematic, systemic, ballot trafficking, with connections that spread nationwide. It’s now happening, thankfully with law enforcement fully engaged. Much more remains to be revealed in the days ahead,” said Catherine Engelbrecht to the Gateway Pundit.

Sources tell The Gateway Pundit a group from Phoenix with the Attorney General’s office executed the search warrants. Additionally, The Gateway Pundit reports:

The nonprofit facilities were not raided. However, Tony Reyes, the Executive Director of Comité de Bien Estar, confirmed to The Gateway Pundit that Comité de Bien Estar’s Membership Coordinator, Gloria Torres received search warrants at the nonprofit office, and law enforcement is looking for evidence of voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.

“That 2000 Mule Documentary is starting to permeate all throughout this process,” said Reyes.He then confirmed that officers showed up to the office, “confiscated her phone, and basically went to her house.”

Tony Reyes is also the current Chairman of the Yuma County Board of Supervisors and they run the elections in Yuma County.

Gloria Torres is a current San Luis City Council Member and Gadsden Elementary School District Board member who faced a recall effort last year stemming from her political ties to Gadsden Elementary School Board member Guillermina Fuentes.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Fuentes, who serves on the San Luis School District Board, was indicted with four class four felonies of Forgery and Conspiracy and ballot abuse in the 2020 Elections.
