3:14 pm
how to get started, use our website and student cam .org. ♪ ♪♪ ♪ ♪♪ ♪ ♪♪ ♪ ♪♪ ♪ ♪ ♪♪ ♪ ♪♪ >> university of baltimore law professor is back with this and she is the author of the book and read the constitution and why and also, this for newspaper and from us and read your latest bill you focus on senate judiciary committee investigation into former president trump's when it comes
3:15 pm
to the justice department and the recent months after the 2020 election. his running viewers what that judiciary committee investigation found. >> investigation found that on nine instances, the former president try to get the department of justice to investigate alleged fraud in the election and i think the implication is that was in an effort to potentially use the justice department in a political way. that is how the justice department helped him stayav in office and it traditionally, the doj has separated itself from elections and that the policy hasth been the election fraud ad it has to be resolved before they investigate the fraud and the point of the make the columnistt out if we do see donald trump run which many
3:16 pm
people believe and if you were to get in the white house and sing around, we will see probably more blurring of the lines between the president and the justice department and that is a really big deal, not just for a truck presidency but for the presidency in general. i talked about the fbi director, j edgar hoover who was in office for 40 years basically use the power of the fbi within the e justice department to spy and intimidate people all the way from eleanor roosevelt and martin luther king jr. and that kind of surveillance police thank you so a really scary state of affairs. so i think that judiciary committee's report on donald trump attempt to use the justice department to his own means is showing into keep in mind when
3:17 pm
we are talking about integrity and democracy itself. the next presidential election in the main term leading up to that because i will dictate what happens with the presidential election is what happens in the mentor. >> i was release last week and one we found out over eight months investigation, how do you think that we came at the end of 2020 beginning of 2021 to a full blown constitutional crisis rated. >> we absolutely for probably there and when i say that, we were there because keep in mind, i live in washington dc and it was appalling watching people literally climbing over and desecrating the united states congress building and those serious law enforcement presence, went on for hours in a stunning and even though we had elected officials from both parties really running for their
3:18 pm
lives, personal lives as well as those of their staff. many republicans to sue met in a ceremonial process of recognizing the state certification on the doors and something is tasty to do. and into the congress in januaro be largely ceremonial because the choice of presidents and state, sunup to the congress and many republicans refused to recognize the legitimacy of the state. not as much about joe biden, it's about that process nasa constitutional crisis. it takes the power away from the people whether you like how your state certified in their lectures are not in the point is that you do choose that at the ballot box and come january 6, they just snatch that that's a real problem there were no
3:19 pm
longer a democracy that spies and midterms are so important that if the house and the senate shifts to really with the mainstream republican platform right now which is what many call the big like in around his and i know were not going to get into that but even former attorney general under hundred under the present president trump, will bar certified it as a legitimate election and will see republicans and potentially dominating congress and deciding in january of 2025, to pick their own president that they'll just take a listen, there was a big lie last time so there was a lot of fraud so we are just going to write that wrong and choose our own president and that is reallyy scary because that means we the people are no longer in charge of our government if we the politicians and even if you like that party, that takes a present from next round if you destroy the system, one day you'll in a position we
3:20 pm
don't like the politicians are picky to be your theaters. that's no longer democracy and i thinkon that we go to our childn to preserve it. >> on the washington journal, you can join the conversation as usual the phoneal lines affect clinical parties, 202748, 8001 and democrats 8000 and independencely (202)748-8002. thank you for calling in and coming back to that judiciary committee investigation republicans on the committee, said that president trump was simply informing the justice about claims of election fraud that he didn't apply undue pressure, is in the ranking member of the judiciary committee chuck grassley on the for the senate last week rated. >> this truncated investigation doesn't support the long-running democratic narrative that trump
3:21 pm
use the justice department to try to overturn the 2020 election. and it's truncated because we don't have all of the records in this kemeny only interviewed three witnesses. the available evidence shows that president trump did not use the department of justice to subvert the 2020 election. for example, one witness testified that president trump added no impact, i repeat no impact in the no impact comes from that witness on what the department did to investigate the electionn allegations in fat the evidence shows that president trump listen to his advisors and to their
3:22 pm
recommendations, and then he followed those recommendations. and the witnesses also testified that president trump did not fire anyone at the justice department relating to the election. in the records from this investigation indicate that presidentss trump's focus was on legitimate complaints and reports of crimes that was an end of". witnesses testified that president trump's main focus was on making the department aware of the potential criminal allegations and to ensure that the department did itshe job. it was not president trump directing or ordering specific it investigative steps.
3:23 pm
>> chuck grassley, and kim, those comments and the republicans reports that came out in the judiciary committee pretty. >> first of all encourage people to read the report itself were an age of misinformation and disinformation often get asked so how do we sort through that read read the document yourself and make your own judgment and is linked to it in my piece and you can google it and find it in the second and i think it speaks for itself in terms of what the witnesses actually seventh of including acting internally general who according to the report was threatened that he would be fired by someone in the civil division without that kind of expertise that was really behind this notion of using the justice department in a way as a sick, traditionally how it is used. is not used to would be a violation actually to use the power of the federal government
3:24 pm
to win elections that is plainly hate crime under federal law. and secondly, as chuck grassley himself the irony here is 88 years old decided to run again for the senate and ohio he sees me, and iowa. and after this insurrection in january, he did declined vote to remove donald trump from office and if you recall, rational back then was not that this was not a problem, rational was does make sense in terms of timing. this is no longer in office so we can technically remove somebody is no longer in office. imino in argue that his actions were not impeachable. but chuck grassley came out and said, he lost. and that is clear that donald trump lost and i'm paraphrasing but that's troubling that he bullied people in elections across the country in the process in this important thing
3:25 pm
to keep in mind for viewers elections are run by regular people. the run by our friends and neighbors and teachers, colleagues pretty older people that are retired, these are not people committing fraud or the election a lot of them are volunteers and they came out by the thousands in a pandemic. and to achieve a goal that i thank you so really stunning that we should all started celebrate them and thank them and this constant refrain that inthey somehow committed fraud s really inaccurate. i think chuck grassley has a political agenda in this moment frankly that is going to the reality and the truth of the facts on the ground which are donald trump did what he did and that is make efforts to get investigations going into an ongoing election. and that's, under justice department because we don't want to make really clear, what we
3:26 pm
don't want is someone whose office of the white house taking the massive laws enforcement authority of the justice department and the fbi is saying, i like the person politically, going to use that against the massive power against my political opponents and that's authoritarian and less like democracy is what we had the split between the justice department and the white house predict very limited authorized medication because the ideas that we want law enforcement of whatt the police want prosecutors to make decisions based on facts, not based on who is in these inner circles and that by whoever is in office as a really scary america. that is what i object to regardless of political party in this moment pretty. >> this is a democrat out of dallas texas pretty. >> good morning pretty.
3:27 pm
[inaudible]. >> are you still there. >> yes. >> go ahead with your question or comment for kimberly wehle. >> present biden's speech and i was really impressed with the fact that he can help me help me predict. >> they were talking about his speech yesterday on the bottleneck in first hour of the program. we are talking now about the ongoing investigations into the government's actions after the 2020 election of the former president's actions donald trump and kimberly wehle here to talk about it printed a republican in california go ahead steve. >> full disclosure, i am not a trump fan all right now my question to you is did you investigate the multi- ballots
3:28 pm
that were being mailed to other people's houses or two voters one guy out here about 125 ballots my god for pretty and got scrubbed and you can check out these by looking at the news were all over it, from any new station and you can see the investigations upfront from november through october of last year and this year, when i went to vote, they told me that i already had voted because i got multi- ballots sent to me again. this is what makes hazmat and, yes, i understand the trump did something crooked but for people be are supposed to investigating the fraud, there's just not enough to overturn the election but they were talking about the fraud pretty. >> stay in the lining case you on what you've seen where you
3:29 pm
are in california pretty. >> just in the last point, russia has not been much finding of fraud, not just to overturn the election but something prominently down the state of florida were actually it happened by theap candidate, the candidate and estate raised for the ballot, had someone put on the ballot with similar last name to an opponent. that was fraud so mainly if it happens in all, it is probably by the politicians not so much by regular people and was he said, the fact that california rejected later ballots, is a no you've already medicament that is a good sign. when the means is that on the other end, when it comes to actually counting the votes, there are very much audit procedures in place to just make sure the only one vote gets thrown i think that something we should be filled hundred feeling good about to the extent that is still, and i agree completely agree to see that this is
3:30 pm
confusing for people. and that it scares people that there are mistakes made in the answer is, for small let's find state election officials processes for the federal prgovernment has given money in many years to states and are having to use their very narrow budget to run these massive elections in multiple balance and complicated and expensive and if we want any of that inconvenience to stop, we should give them the money to run the programs. and properly and i think that's number one and number two is that there is no reason that congress cannot streamline some of this stuff and just make some of it consisted across the country and canada for example, we get one former ballot and it has sort of circles and you exit and everybody from the first in the boat to the last boat that they cast in their lifetime, it's the same thing in our country, totally confusing and he depends on what county and
3:31 pm
what state you are in great this makes it harder for people and i think i should just be easy for people to vote pretty so i agree with that part. that this is frustrating and not okay in the answer is not to overturn elections and to claim fraud, that is a fraud on the american people frankly to be sending that message and the answer is let's fund the elections in the streamlined them to make them current with 21st century technology. it make it easier for people like steve devout with confidence. >> this is mark good morning pretty. >> my question to your guest is where is america garlanded work is a so-called attorney general we have in my opinion is worse attorney general that i've seen since joan mitchell. >> what would you like him to do pretty. >> investigate transactions after november 3rd, and
3:32 pm
present the white house called election officials and states, andic told them to commit perjuy and fraud and where was mary garland. and he is doing absolutely nothing, how uselessus is the sy predict. >> actually and coming to a similar opinion that is defending this lesson, we need america garlanded to step up and i agree, this are potentially criminal allegations and serious and problems and keep in mind that we have seen hundreds hundreds of americans who showed up on january 6th and physically stormed the capitol there being held accountable there being criminally invested in some of them are mean sentence and they are having to hire lawyers. look at public defenders that are overworked and their hiring the lawyers are havingg to pull from their own pockets and take from the family budgets to provide criminal defenses hard
3:33 pm
as on the backend and the people that showed up. what about the people inside of the government and that's of the judiciary committee is looking at an agreed america garland to be doing that as well and the window is closing i think politically and not political expert but midterms are going to change the entire story because if many as washington expect, the control of congress goes to the republican some people thinks it will happen gerrymandering in the new census data regardless of money. in all these investigations in congress around january 6, they willll shut down so that is goig to happen we have about a year and merrick garland is presumably investigating it but the question is will it produce indictments and federal officials prosecutors are really really careful to make sure they the claims before the bring them with this might be a
3:34 pm
moment where that m kind of levl of almost 99.9 percent certainty may be democracy itself to perceive that and don't mean that run donald trump but to perceive that in the moment because i'm very very concerned that we are seeing the twilight of american democracy as we know it. >> from the justice department down to pennsylvania avenue to capitol hill, you argue that congressional democrats to take a number of legislative actions right now to brace for what might happen if republicans win in 2022 and a donald trump were to regain the white house in 2024 pretty somebody think the priority should be right now pretty. >> that is a great point and that is post- watergate, congress stepped in and putting a bunch of legislations to make sure that nick senate and the reckoning all of that that led to the resignation is not
3:35 pm
allowed to happen again it sort of rules of the game so you have to have personnel rules because people will stealke for example and likewise for government after someone needs to happen are few things. when there's an old statute from 1887, that really is pushy and that is kind of what allowed the potential in january 6, for the congress to take the election away from the american people and that needs to be fixed and clarified, the american people vote that counts, not what members of congress decide for themselves and their son this moment any legislation to fix that in the democrats need to do that right away. and then the freedom to vote fact, that amy colby char joe manchin, many people on board, that would be some of the things that steve mentioned in elections in congress does have that authority in the constitution and that should happen to make it easier for people to vote and stop this nonsense frankly toop
3:36 pm
make it harder like texas and georgia and should not be so hard about. there are pieces of john lewis voting rights act that we've heard about the act of 1965 was designed to essentially implement the 15th a minute which gave formally enslaved black men mainly right to vote and that was taken away through maneuvers in theta city and putting rights act, in 2013, as an important provision of that, but in 2015 we see a lot of these anticlotting laws come back. ofsupreme court sent congress, u can fix that and spends many years with a sack would be the thing the fixes that john lewis voting rights act and it would be another piece of the democrats have problems with the filibuster andth problems with o members of the senate caucus they don't want to amend the bill or they have issues with
3:37 pm
the filibustered in other priorities infrastructure another things in my arm it is that if the chip in the democracy in here, doesn't really matter please other priorities over by the wayside pretty lgbtq to rise immigration healthcare climate, all of that will be at the whims of whoever is in power of the voters noe longer matter and that is why the democrats really need to step up and use their majority this moment is automatic, is majority in the next year to shore up democracy for the people of america, all americans predict republicans and democrats and independence that we can students federal elections and that is what is at stake at this moment pretty t-mac this is john from wisconsin, good morning. [inaudible]. usually takes me about 15 minutes, i drive my local polling place i cast my ballot and i come back home and so i
3:38 pm
disagree and i think that we need to have the estate voting and the easier you make it, the easier it will be and the first point is we are currently giving. [inaudible]. and we are starting to find out that in wisconsin there was some stuff that went on in wisconsin and read the bill as you said to go to your website and read to find that read but there was definitely stuff that was going on that was not constitution they were against the states constitution in wisconsin and in pennsylvania. do you agree with that and how it happened or did not happen, that there was some shady stuff happening over this election due to the pandemic rules and i don't think we should have all of thehe same rules.
3:39 pm
>> will that is a great point john and i appreciate the opportunity for clarification. i'm not at all suggesting that we water down the rules to invite fraud, absolutely no way i am not suggesting that we somehow have universal federal system, absolutely not but i do think we need y to think about . we can do our own thinking on her phone and we can enter healthcare very person pretty things on our phone and running in saying that we should be able to vote on phones, maybe we have to physically voted not against voter id but there are ways of votingng, some people may be seizing wisconsin other states is very difficult for example during the pandemic, fewer student, there is one state if you are a student in college you can find the videos from the state in a pandemic on campus in
3:40 pm
order to vote and things like that don't necessarily help with fraud. they just make it harder to validate something that should be the case. fabulous, i don't have my finger on all of these investigation but i do teach law school coursd civil procedure which is not even a case from the beginning to the end in a federal court. what are those rules my will tell you want to teach my students, several state judges, they are bound by rules of evidence and bound by procedural rules in the get what they do get goes on appeal to a higher court so they have much less discretion to make decisions if there is not hard evidence number 60 plus lawsuits that were filed across the country relating to alleged fraud none of them went anywhere. that is because there just was not any there and we see even in
3:41 pm
michigan, some of the lawyers that brought these lawsuits have beenau sanctioned because they were so lacking in fact. rudy giuliani lost his license into states because he made arguments involve bosses lacking in facts. that is a good thing because you and i, we want to make sure that the judges do not let people sue usse based on bogus allegations are made up stuff to bully us. that is inth place in the court systems so i'm less concerned about audits in arizona, the audit for joe biden, i'm more concerned about what policies are doing to find alleged fraud and what happened in the course because i have confidence that the rules around the course make it hard not to do the right thing when it comes to basic it should you go vasco. those losses were lots of people tempted to try to find the fraud, none of it was found that makes me sleep well at night and i'm happy actually that our election was secure as bill barr
3:42 pm
said in other professionals have said. >> university of baltimore law professor and author off the bok and read the constitution and why and taking phone calls online. republicans and democrats and independents, this is gina the republican line from illinois and good morning pretty. >> good morning and thank you professor for your insights and education here but i'm from illinois and we have been going through public integrity issues for many many years and wonders in the future there to circle back to when john f. kennedy was elected and he asked the mayor how many more votes do you have there for me and they said how many more do you need. i mean, public integrity is everything is not just here in illinois. this absentee ballot seems to be
3:43 pm
the linchpin for not only us but other cities where there could be some corruption involved. and if it work that i would like to see the u.s. attorney get more involved especially here in illinois to make sureno we havea strong legal and clean election process and thank you. >> i agree and i think we've lost sight of f that frankly in america and you're not going to let your reader to make sure that whoever was your children it is ethical and has the value system to make sure you teachers and through her friends follow certain levels of integrity and that they are honest and reliable and kind maybe. all of these things, matter and our families and our communities and personal lives we seem to have checked it out the door when it comes to politicians. people don't understand, red or blue, politicians are not investment any more than other
3:44 pm
culture certainly andnd voters e as we the people, not we the politicians. we need to be skeptical across the political spectrum but i want to point out this voter integrity issue is important but the thing that is shifting now is not so much casting the ballot. but counting the ballots in the county part affects everybody so in this sense the united states was established in the constitution, the only people who could vote for white males who had money and he owned land without a fight since then as to who gets to go. it was african-american males and then it was limited under the 19th amendment and we kept expanding that and were still fighting who gets to cast a ballot. but what is happening now across the country after january 6, is that the laws of the state are
3:45 pm
being changed to give politicians the power to count the ballots predict this in my understanding is new to american history so you could be a white male landowner back in 1887, in the next round, politicians could say that we don't like this we think it was fraudulent and were going to cancel it and this is a red flag moment. in the house is on fire for america and say we just disagree come over and have the most stringent voting laws across the country and abandon any conceivable concept of fraud in front is already a crime so a lot of people have a reason not to committ fraud. but even if we really monitor who getskl about, was happeningn the republican party cross-country that republicans are saying we get to decide whom scope counts even after you've cast it and that's what happened in a lawsuit that was brought by texas attorney general and when all the way to the supreme court think for other states we want
3:46 pm
to cancel all those people spoken this not just democrat or republican or white voters are male fighters, brown black or this is all the voters and this is a problem. we the people should be able to pick our own politicians and we should be able to hold them accountable and right now it's kind of this sneaky thing happening across the country. to say so far passing legislation to say the politicians ultimately get to decide who wins the presidential election. that is a scary moment for american democracy that's what we've sort of ringing the bell and i hope that we can hold hands across parties and realize this is about our children's well-being and the existence of freedom and liberties for anybody in america. if the politicians get to pick and choose who they like a new is notn't like, that liberty, that's not a good picture of the future. sue had been about ten minutes ouleft and one another in a conversation about merrick
3:47 pm
garland and sparkingng discussin on c-span, judging from merrick garland's behavior, apparently saw the crime or any you're saying that your concern that merrick garland is not suited for attorney general at this stage of our history printed reports and can there be a more blurring the lines between the biden administration and the department of justice merrick garland and rick saying what will it take to get biden to replace merrick garland at the doj and trump this group are going to get through this unscathed. and few other comments and calling and and carolina pretty. >> good morning and thought i would like to make a suggestion for questions and comments because i was an election judge and no with the laws are needed about so i want to express. and give you suggestions on c-span but anyways about the laws that the republicans are making, you don't need these
3:48 pm
laws, the trying to secure it with id, we run so many laws just for id and if there was all this voter fraud, how come nobody has been charged of. if i saw you rob a store, board million 20 other people so you never gets arrested, nobody has been arrested so people said they seem fraud are doing it so if you know it did not happen so nobody is locked up and trump was the president at the time the doj to go after anybody and they never reported there never was an first of all, in order to i say make voting we should all have paper ballots but this is my suggestion, you should go to wherever going to go to school, they can see 30 - 40 people at a time in the cafeteria. you can wait on many people one
3:49 pm
time to fill out the balance on paper and you can see them, you know it's okay and but you got that paper. you need that a body with it that would stop the sunlight. in the next thing is an understand why trump hasn't been arrested for trying to bribe all of the secretary of state's thing was in georgia. that's against the law read. >> dorothy you bring up several different points. >> those are a lot of great poison paper valid point, my understanding european countries had gone back to the paper ballots and he does a great idea. it's a little archaic but keep in mind the voting machines are not controlled by the government of the controlled by the private parties as a door this point, let's just make it really easy to trace and stuff completely totally agree with that. and as far as the product, she
3:50 pm
makes a good point that there has been any prosecution but also keep in mind that we are talking those of us about it, the presidential election at the topnt of the ticket with their a lot of people belowow that including members of congress got into office claiming that top of the ticket was fraudulent but they're part of the ticket was not fraudulent and we have to bring our common sense to this. if it was fraud than the whole ballot this fraud many we have members claiming that is time to move on inti my mind let's talk about the issues that bother americans and facing people and they are struggling to put food on the table and wearing about climate change and the pandemic and we should not be looking at this fraud we s should be arguig around issues and so long as politicians pull it off of this fraud stuff, we are not in a position to move forward on stuff that matters to regular people predict. >> this is paul in myrtle beach, independent in good morning pretty.
3:51 pm
>> is in good morning and i am it in, south carolina actually just one quick question. 2020 u.s. census the federal government online mostly, why can't we do the voting online and thank you. >> i've asked experts at mit a about that and the minor my understanding is that the most recent technology, there's still notog entirely sure about whethr it could be broadened free read again i'm not an expert in that was a question that i thought we bank on line and that is prettyt important. so they are working on that led think it is a good point in that keep in mind that we are not rushing in a direction because of potential foror fraud in many multiple multiple experts have said the government experts hundred donald trump that this was a very secure probably the most in history, that's a reason to celebrate, not a reason to worry that we have other things
3:52 pm
we should be worrying about. >> since is so important for the numbers, has been concerned about since his fraud pretty. >> i don't know so much about fraud with the probably thank you so people who have access to computers, it is easy for your census form former there many americans who don't and traditionally, there are census workers who go door to door and underr, bridges and two people o are without homes. they go to people where english is not the first language or they are elderly and they don't have access to that kind of technology and fegley that donald trump's decision, the process was cut off prematurely so a lot of people didn't get didn't get counted that would've gotten counted as census numbers
3:53 pm
set in stone once a certified for ten years. thoseos numbers are used to determine how many members of the house of representatives each state guess that is numberr one and also much money each state gets on my mind that iset really are the problem because regardless of whether you have access to a computer, you stay still needs a certain amount of money and representation for p l people. so that's the part of the senses that the pandemic probably truncated it in a way that created inaccuracy. >> this is willie republican, good morning pretty. >> good morning to you and welcome back to the party. and listen, quickly three quick questions, was crisis when leader policy and the rest of the congressional black caucus,
3:54 pm
they all with bush and was again, and trump selection and they tried to have that done there and also what you done to our inquiry to the massive election irregularities in these key state starting with the middleg ballots in the of the night in the large discrepancies in boehner different devotes and keynote because the issues in lesson, you talked about the border with lines, between the executive branch and the doj. have you met the garland biden because it seems to me that garland it has his hand in different investigations that would not, wondering how the world and i'm never seen the doj do that type of thing the fbi in investigating parents and schools semi- check that out and technically - >> was there one in particular
3:55 pm
pretty. >> so yeah, so the last point, i'm garland, i'm guessing recordings that is blurring lines between joe biden and him and not recording of joe biden saying listen in need you to do this and that senate can be secured in my second term. that is a problem and i saw that i would talk on it in the first point, yes you are right that the electoral count, the old statute that a mention does allowto members of congress to object to say certifications that has happened inas the pasts still open ceremonial and no one expected there would be enough votes to create trigger process where the congress would pick the president netsuite shifted in january and if you watch the footage and there wasta death ad there was instruction and widespread desecration of the
3:56 pm
capitol building itself. this was a historical, there's no equivalent in the history of america there should be in the statute, a trigger you need to have actual admissible evidence by beyond a reasonable doubt or other standards. as missing soha i agreed that we need standards for both republicans and the democrats to make sure that the people can't fix the elections printed neglect what is in the movement, have the army expertise and infrastructures and such for the republican party has not found any yet and georgia for example multiple times and we should feel good about this. we should not be pointing fingers whether it has mental evidence so as first, i just testing it has not been produced toto date and really think the political machinery say feel
3:57 pm
good about the fact that there was no serious documented fraud in the 2020 election pretty. >> let's call, garden grove california, democrat, good morning pretty. >> thank you cspan for having this platform and i want to think the professor for bringing us to the point where this very informed that our elections are secure in a field they are secured and then our last election and the previous election was secured. i've been an absentee voter for 30 some years printed in the state of california which understand that there are several states that have complete absentee ballots that have insecure. it's preposterous that we are sending these false flags going to lose our democratic system of electing our officials if we don't all in on point pretty did
3:58 pm
have a question in orange county, where i reside, we are able to go through the register voters name have a wonderful app that you can logon and they say hey we got your ballot and you can go on and you can check and say, where you voted in who you voted for and current and previous elections throughout the tenure of your voting. so just wondering, is something that is regular throughout the state or is it just a privilege that we in orange county gecalifornia have. not just california but a richer area so thank you so much free time and i appreciate listening to you. >> i do know california often said that information in advance about what the ballots look like the varies across the country so this is a weird wrinkle in our
3:59 pm
democracy that is forcr small te right to vote is affirmatively in this talking to people we do think that it if it were in there things will be cleaned up because the courts cannot mess around with the stuff but because of that, it's a right that is the foundation of all of our other rights and as we get to fire people if we don't like how they are acting. it varies across the state and other rights differ. but the other point that i want to make in response to that call, is this idea of misinformation people that are wondering about fraud, really encourage you to go get original sources and get on your secretary of state's website by the fact yourself because we are in a digital age were algorithms by big companies big online media companies and data companies, they're feeding information and your facebook feed based onti your choice and
4:00 pm
