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.

Jan. 6 Select Committee Announces Plan to ‘Advance Contempt Proceedings’ Against Mark Meadows

The January 6th Capital riot saga continues as a Democratic-led Select Committee has confirmed its plans to hold former President Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows in criminal contempt. On Tuesday CNN obtained a letter that Mark Meadow’s attorney sent to the January 6 Committee formally announcing he would refuse to continue to cooperate with the probe.

“We agreed to provide thousands of pages of responsive documents and Mr. Meadows was willing to appear voluntarily, not under compulsion of the Select Committee’s subpoena to him, for a deposition to answer questions about non-privileged matters,” attorney George J. Terwilliger III stated in the letter.

“Now actions by the Select Committee have made such an appearance untenable…In short, we now have every indication from the information supplied to us last Friday — upon which Mr. Meadows could expect to be questioned — that the Select Committee has no intention of respecting boundaries concerning Executive Privilege,” Terwilliger added.

Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) wrote a letter dated December 7 announcing its retaliatory actions: “The Select Committee is left with no choice but to advance contempt proceedings and recommend that the body in which Mr. Meadows once served refer him for criminal prosecution.”

CNN reports on the timeline of correspondence between the Select Committee and Mr. Meadows:

Meadows was first subpoenaed by the committee on September 23. On November 12, Meadows failed to appear for a deposition, but on November 22, the committee gave Meadows another opportunity to begin cooperating with the committee by turning over documents and scheduling a new deposition, to which Meadows agreed. But, the day before the scheduled deposition, Meadows, via his lawyer, informed the committee he would not be appearing for the scheduled December 8 deposition and would cease cooperating with the committee.

Prior to Tuesday’s decision to cease cooperating with the committee, Meadows “had turned over approximately 6,000 pages worth of documents to the panel” reports CNN.
