DOJ Says Armed Feds Can “Inspect” State Vote-Counting Locations

  • As vote tabulation in several key battleground states continues to slowly narrow Trump’s path to reelection, the New York Times reported late Wednesday that the DOJ claims that U.S. law permits armed federal agents to enter ballot-counting locations to investigate alleged “fraud”.
  • News of the Justice Department’s early Wednesday email came after Trump spent much of that day lying about vote-counting procedures and peddling baseless claims of suspicious activity as he watched his slim leads in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania vanish.
  • The Times noted that the Justice Department’s email, authored by Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue, “created the specter of the federal government intimidating local election officials or otherwise intervening in vote tallying amid calls by President Trump to end the tabulating in states where he was trailing in the presidential race.”
