New York Attorney General Reportedly Requests Testimony From Trump In Fraud Investigation – Live | US News
Americans face unprecedented hurdles in making their voices heard in the upcoming elections of 2022 and 2024, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold said on Wednesday.
In a panel at the Reuters Next conference, Griswold warned of multiple dangers to democracy in the United States, including bills designed to delete the vote, death threats against election officials and untruths perpetuated by politicians both at the national and state levels.
Democrats and Republicans are fighting for control of the US Congress next year and the presidency in 2024. Democrats now hold a slim majority in the House of Representatives and control the divided Senate thanks to the decisive vote of Vice President Kamala Harris.
“The warning lights are blinking red. We are seeing January 6, the attempted robbery of a US presidency, just in slow motion right now, ”said Griswold, a Democrat.
“What we’re seeing right now isn’t about 2020 anymore. It’s around 2022 and 2024, which makes what was attempted on January 6 more achievable next time around. So I think we’re at an incredibly urgent time in terms of things we need to do, what we need to do, ”she said.
Former President Donald Trump falsely claimed that the 2020 presidential election result was fraudulent and urged a group of loyalists to march on the U.S. Capitol after a rally on January 6. His supporters did, invading the Capitol, leading to five dead.
