House Democrats Consider Bills to Safeguard Elections

House Democrats Consider Bills to Safeguard Elections

June 10, 2019 at 2:11 pm EDT By Taegan Goddard 37 Comments



“In a meeting last week in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office, Democratic lawmakers gathered to craft a plan — including specific legislative fixes — to respond to the Mueller report,” NBC News reports.

“Pelosi is hoping hearings around legislative fixes will highlight the worst wrongdoing contained in the Mueller report, and possibly broaden public support for impeachment.”

“One likely piece of legislation would be framed as ‘Duty to Report,’ requiring presidential campaign aides and entities to report foreign contacts and influence to law enforcement… Also at the top of the menu is a package of legislation to address election security and obstruction of justice by a sitting president, potentially specifically prohibiting a president from interfering in law enforcement activity.”
