Leaked audio: Trump adviser says Republicans 'traditionally' rely on voter suppression

MADISON, WIS. -- MADISON, Wis. -- One of U.S. President Donald Trump's top re-election advisers told influential Republicans in swing state Wisconsin that the party has "traditionally" relied on voter suppression to compete in battleground states but will be able to "start playing offence" in 2020 due to relaxed Election Day rules, according to an audio recording of a private event obtained by The Associated Press.

"Traditionally it's always been Republicans suppressing votes in places," Justin Clark, a senior political adviser and senior counsel to Trump's re-election campaign, said at the event. "Let's start protecting our voters. We know where they are. ... Let's start playing offence a little bit. That's what you're going to see in 2020. It's going to be a much bigger program, a much more aggressive program, a much better-funded program."

Asked about the remarks by AP, Clark said he was referring to false accusations that the GOP engages in voter suppression

2. They Need To Cheat To Win

Thom Hartmann has played a leaked tape of a top Republican operative saying they need to keep as many as possible from voting.

We also know that in the disputed 2000 election republicans were observed pitching thousands of votes in a trash bin. And in that same election we saw republican thugs pounding on the doors of recount locations. And the recount that year was stopped by the Supreme Court as further recounting would cause undue harm not to the USA but to Bush.

And the Republicans have been furiously packing courts with far right judges, many seriously under qualified.

This is why we need to get the Senate back. We need to vote in 2020 in such numbers to overcome Republican cheating.

3. Absolutely

Their positions and policies are fundamentally anti-American. Lying, deception, and cheating are the only weapons left in their arsenal
