Adam Schiff Demands Postage Paid Ballots for Voters, Worried Trump Will “Disenfranchise” Voters


Adam Schiff did everything in his power to make himself the star of the impeachment show.

Once that show failed, however, Schiff faded into the distance. News networks no longer had a reason to put his face on TV everyday.

Now Schiff has found a way to wriggle back into the limelight.

Appearing on MSNBC yesterday, Schiff claimed that we need to make prepaid postage ballots available for Americans. His reasoning?

Why, Donald Trump is going to prevent people from voting in 2020 of course!

Trump simply has questioned how reliable widespread mail-in voting would be, since it does open the opportunity for voter fraud opportunities. Democrats don’t seem to want to answer any questions as to how we can ensure mail-in voting will create an accurate, fair election.

Here’s the details on Schiff’s latest appearance from the New York Post:

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said he worries more that President Trump will try to keep “millions of Americans” from voting safely in November than he does that the commander-in-chief would try to delay election day.

Asked on MSNBC Sunday about presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s concern that Trump would try to delay the November election because of coronavirus, Schiff (D-Calif.) said the president did not have the authority to do so.

“I’m more worried he will try to disenfranchise millions of Americans than that he will try to put off the election. He’s already talking down absentee voting, making false claims about the reliability of absentee voting even when he votes by absentee himself,” the California Democrat said.

“But he has openly admitted — and it’s rather startling to hear him say out in the open — that he believes that more Americans vote, more would participate in our democracy, he and other Republicans can’t get elected. That may very well be true, but that is not a reason to disenfranchise people. It’s a reason to change their platform,” he continued.

The frequent Trump critic went on to accuse Republicans of putting people’s health at risk in an effort to reduce turnout in November, specifically with their opposition to mail-in voting.

“I do think that like they tried in Wisconsin, the Republicans may try to force people to choose their vote or their health,” Schiff said. “And we need to insist, and I think needs to be a very important point in terms of protecting the health care of our democracy, we need to insist that every American in the fall if they choose to do so, has easy access to voting-by-mail with a postage-paid ballot. Because we can’t preserve the health of our country if we allow democracy to be destroyed.”

One MSNBC appearance apparently wasn’t enough for Adam Schiff. He also appeared on Chris Hayes’s show to discuss his favorite subject, the impeachment trials.

Schiff made the absurd claim that 50,000 Americans are now dead because Donald Trump wasn’t removed from office. 

To hear such a ridiculous claim come from a United States Representative is a new low, even for Adam Schiff.

Here’s how people reacted to Schiff’s statement on Twitter:
