If crying ‘rigged election’ were a crime, the entire Democrat Party and much of the media establishment would be in prison.

 

 

After spying on the communications of members of Congress, seizing bank records of Americans engaged in peaceful protest, fabricating evidence against political opponents, and threatening freedom of the press, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hand-picked Jan. 6 Committee has told media allies it will try to criminalize the act of Republicans raising funds for safeguarding elections.

The latest abuse of power from the norm-breaking committee was revealed earlier this week in a one-sided report from the committee’s propaganda arm at The Washington Post.

 

The committee, composed exclusively of Democrat-appointed members, is seeking access to the private financial records of its political opponents and the donors who support them, as part of an unprecedented effort to claim that fundraising in support of election integrity may constitute wire fraud:

Officials with the committee said the day’s events cannot be viewed in a vacuum — and argued that the fundraising and political appeals that happened in the months leading up to Jan. 6, 2021, are a reason the pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol.“These people knew the claims they were making about the election were false but still sent emails anyways because it was an effective way to raise money,” a person familiar with the investigation said.

There are several major problems with this latest scheme from the committee to redefine legitimate election-integrity concerns as knowingly false claims of stolen elections. First, it is yet another brazen assault on the First Amendment rights of speech and political assembly. Second, it was not, in fact, false to say that the 2020 election was riddled with problems.

On the contrary, it is a conspiracy theory to say it didn’t have major problems, given the exorbitantly funded, widespread, and coordinated takeover of government election offices by Mark Zuckerberg-funded liberal groups to run Democrat get-out-the-vote operations. Hundreds of last-minute changes to election laws and procedures were pushed through — sometimes constitutionally, sometimes not — to intentionally flood the zone with tens of millions of mail-in ballots.:snip:
