In an interview with “The BAKARI SELLERS Podcast” released Thursday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton revealed that she wishes the 2020 presidential election were next Tuesday, expressing uncertainty about the outcome of the election in November. Her answer was based on some recent polls showing former Vice President Joe Biden ahead in the race.

“Look, if the election were held next Tuesday, which I wish it would be, Joe would win, and I’d be more relieved than I am waiting until November,” Clinton said. “But here’s what the Republicans are gonna try to do, and voters need to be really aware of this. Number one, they’re gonna try to suppress the vote, they’re gonna try to make it hard for you to vote, they’re gonna try to, you know, make those lines stretch for hours, they’re going to try to make vote-by-mail difficult.

She continued, “Anything they can do to try to undermine the fairness of the election is absolutely their agenda. It’s what Stacey Abrams contended with and what she’s fighting against with her Fair Fight. It’s what I’m doing with my Onward Together Group, working with Democracy Docket to bring lawsuits to force states to run fair elections.”

Additionally, Clinton explained that Republicans will use ‘poll watchers’ to ‘intimidate’ voters at polling stations, but added that Democrats need to bring their own ‘poll watchers’ to support voters needs at the polls, while also ‘fending off’ Republican-endorsed poll-watchers.

“We’re also going to see as we already are seeing a flood of misinformation and disinformation online about Joe, about other Democrats, you know?” Clinton said.

BREAKING: Senate votes down both articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in party-line vote

Mayorkas

The Senate voted down two articles of impeachment Wednesday which alleged Department of Homeland Security Secretary  Alejandro Mayorkas engaged in the “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” regarding the southern border in his capacity as DHS secretary. The second claimed Mayorkas had breached public trust.

What resulted in a party-line vote, began with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., proposing a point of order declaring the first article unconstitutional, to which the majority of senators agreed following several failed motions by Republicans. The article was deemed unconstitutional by a vote of 51-48, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voting present.

Fox News reports:

Schumer’s point of order was proposed after his request for unanimous consent, which would have provided a set amount of time for debate among the senators, as well as votes on two GOP resolutions and a set amount of agreed upon points of order, was objected to by Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo.

Schmitt stated in his objection that the Senate should conduct a full trial into the impeachment articles against Mayorkas, rather than the debate and points of order suggested by Schumer’s unanimous consent request, which would be followed by a likely successful motion to dismiss the articles. 

Republican senators took issue with Schumer’s point of order, as agreeing to it would effectively kill the first of the two articles. Several GOP lawmakers proposed motions, which took precedence over the point of order, to adjourn or table the point, among other things. But all GOP motions failed. 

After another batch of motions to avoid voting on Schumer’s second point of order, which would deem the second article unconstitutional, the Senate agreed to it. The vote was along party lines 51-49, with Murkowski rejoining the Republicans.
