Democrats are still pushing the false Russia narrative about the 2016 election. Yet just before then, Claire McCaskill said on CNN that rigging the election would be impossible.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Week Before Blaming ‘F*cking Russians,’ McCaskill Said Election ‘Impossible’ to Rig
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) was quoted on election night blaming the “f*cking Russians” for Hillary Clinton’s loss, but a week earlier she was on CNN saying “it would be impossible to rig an election in the United States of America.”
McCaskill’s October 28, 2016, comments to Chris Cuomo came when most were confident Clinton would be victorious and Democrats were pressuring Donald Trump to say he would accept the election results.
“The notion that the most resilient and admired democracy in the world is now subject to election rigging is preposterous,” McCaskill said. “Frankly, it would be impossible to rig an election in the United States of America.”
McCaskill goes on to criticize Trump for “whining” and “making excuses” for losing.
Now more than 17 months since the election it is Democrats who are still attempting to challenge the results in the courts. The Democratic National Committee filed a lawsuit against the Trump campaign for conspiring with Russia to defeat Clinton.
