DCCC Chair Defends Hillary’s Claim That Election Could Be “Stolen”

(JustPatriots.com)- Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Sean Patrick Maloney defended Hillary Clinton’s claim that elections could be stolen, according to Summit News. Maloney went on CBS’ “Face The Nation” last week reportedly asserting that right-wing extremists are plotting to steal the next election.

In a video in which Clinton asks for donations for a Democratic organization, she claims that the right will steal the election through the Supreme Court.

“Right-wing extremists already have a plan to literally steal the next presidential election, and they’re not making a secret of it,” she said, adding that the “Right-wing controlled Supreme Court may be poised to rule on giving state legislatures the power to overturn presidential elections.”

“Just think, if that happens, the 2024 presidential election could be decided not by the popular vote or even the anachronistic Electoral College but by state legislatures, many of them Republican-controlled,” Clinton continued.


Maloney was asked by the CBS host whether Clinton’s comments were helpful amid this divisive political climate. Maloney responded that both sides need to “make sure voting is fair, that there’s no fraud.”

“Let’s not pretend for a minute that both sides have the same amount of accountability for the loss of confidence in our elections,” Maloney said, then taking his aim at Republicans. “One side has been out there for a couple of years now, doing everything they can to pretend Joe Biden didn’t win fair and square, when he did.”


The comments of the former secretary of state and the DCCC chair come less than a week away from the midterm elections in which Republicans are projected to pull off massive upsets.

After a series of debates where Democratic candidates did not do well against their Republican challengers, the GOP is pulling ahead. In one debate, Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman squared off with challenger Dr. Mehmet Oz. As shown in a clip uploaded to Twitter, Fetterman struggled to formulate his sentences. Four polls now show Oz leading Fetterman.

In another showdown for the New York gubernatorial race, Republican challenger Lee Zeldin cracked down on Kathy Hochul’s weak stance on crime and defense of lockdowns early on in the pandemic.
