electoral integrity

Despite couching his authorisation with caveats, the United States Attorney General is showing partisan bias in directing federal prosecutors to investigate voting irregularities and tacitly endorses the defeated Trump’s disinformation campaign and narrative that the Democrats rigged the election. While it behoves one to recall that it was the Justice Department that conjured up a battalion of shock troops to disappear problematic protesters in what were interpreted as Democratic strongholds, this chicanery of sore losers (and continued purges) will not translate to a coup d’รฉtat in any sense with democracy and its institutions berated and bedraggled as they may be still prevailing despite the pandemic, economic collapse, plus massive and concerted efforts of disenfranchisement—still the people spoke.
