Nancy Pelosi: Republicans Are ‘Domestic Enemies Of Our Voting System’
House Speaker accuses Republicans and Trump of election interference
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted Republicans calling them “enemies of the state" while arguing her case for what she claimed was election interference.
During an interview with MSNBC, Pelosi attacked both President Donald Trump and the Republican Party, calling them “domestic enemies” of America’s voting system.
Pelosi's fiery remarks came hours after Trump's speech at the Republican National Convention.
“We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic," Pelosi said.
"And sadly, the domestic enemies to our voting system and honoring our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with their allies in the Congress of the United States," she added.
"But again, let’s just get out there and mobilize, organize, and not let the President deter anybody from voting," Pelosi continued.
"And again, support the postal system which is election central,” Pelosi said.
“They’re doing everything they can, suppress the vote — with your actions, scare people, intimidate by saying law enforcement will be there, diminish the role of the postal system in all of this," she argued.
"It’s really actually shameful. Enemies of the state,” Pelosi said.
Earlier this week, Neon Nettle reported the House of Representatives voted 257-150 in favor of $25 billion in funding for the Postal Service.
Pelosi earlier this month recalled members back to Washington D.C. to vote on a USPS bill amid the Democrats' push for mail-in voting for the November election.
The news came as President Donald Trump was accused of undermining mail delivery ahead of the general election.
"Alarmingly, across the nation, we see the devastating effects of the President's campaign to sabotage the election by manipulating the Postal Service to disenfranchise voters," Pelosi (D-CA) told congressional Democrats last week.
Attorney General Bill Barr recently criticized Democrats for pushing mail-in voting in the run-up to the election.
AG Barr described the Democratic Party as "grossly irresponsible" for promoting "reckless and wrong" vote-by-mail ballots.
