President Donald Trump told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo that he is blocking funding for the Post Office in order to stop (legal) mail-in voting:
Now they need that money in order to make the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots … But if they don’t get those two items that means you can’t have universal mail-in voting.
Trump was pounded on Twitter for his public admission of suppressing votes.
Is this alone not an impeachable offense? Purposefully defunding the USPS to help his reelection prospects?— bnzoot (@carolereardon13) August 13, 2020
Trump always confesses eventually. People act like he’s not corrupt because he does it out in the open.— KD (@Fly_Sistah) August 13, 2020
He’s publicly admitting to participating in both mail AND voter fraud.— Fred Gerteiny (@FredGerteiny) August 13, 2020
I mean this. Impeach him again, right now. He literally admitted to election fraud.— Jerry (@Snax_63) August 13, 2020
Not yet 9:30 AM, and we already have today’s impeachable offense. Deliberately underfunding the Post Office so people affected by COVID, or worried about getting it, can’t vote is pretty dammed evil. https://t.co/CeBWi8IceN— Radley Balko (@radleybalko) August 13, 2020
