MSNBC: Foreign Countries Should Monitor U.S. Elections

'We used to do that in other burgeoning and threatened democracies...’

(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace suggested this week that other countries should monitor the U.S. elections, using Republicans as a reason to push the crazed-leftist narrative, according to Breitbart.

On MSNBC’s Deadline: White House, Congressman Jim Himes, D-Conn., and Wallace discussed alleged internal and external threats to upcoming U.S. elections and peddled the idea of having someone else other than Americans to be a safeguard against national security threats.

“We’re so focused on our own pretty splendid efforts to destroy our democracy from the Republican Party in this country that we forget that they’re foreign actors that represent a grave threat as well,” Wallace jabbered, accusing former President Donald Trump and pro-liberty Republicans of all types of nefarious threats to democracy.

Himes, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, responded by saying that he is worried more about what’s happening in the U.S. rather than what he sees in the intelligence committee.

Wallace asked Himes whether he thought foreign intervention was necessary because of the “pervasive,” “dire” and “violent” threats to the country’s upcoming midterm elections.

“I mean, do you think it’s time to ask for friends and allies to come over and help us monitor our elections?” she asked. “We used to do that in other burgeoning and threatened democracies.”

Himes didn’t respond by saying that it was a horrible idea. Instead, he said that he was “not there yet.”

“You know the kind of intimidation that is threatened around polling places,” Himes said, playing up one of the Left’s favorite fear-mongering fantasies of roving gangs of white nationalists.  “I mean, you’ve seen the pictures of the guys with assault weapons near boxes.

“That stuff is intimidating, and again that used to be sort of the province of — I hate to use the term — third-world countries that didn’t care about democracy,” he added.

Himes also said that the United States would not only need to oppose Russia, China and North Korea from interfering with American elections, but also the Republican party.

“And one of the most effective things we can do to take an awful lot of the vulnerabilities off the table, of course, would be to pass the Electoral Count Act in the United States Congress because that deals with a lot of the levers that they tried to use after Donald Trump was defeated in November of ‘20,” he said.
