Clinton accuses Russia of infiltrating United States government
Worried about falling poll numbers in working-class states, Clinton campaign identifies, addresses, a key concern of middle-class: the Soviet threat to the United States electoral process.
In a 13the-hour appeal for heartland votes, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is crafting her message to appeal to key Midwest constituencies identified by the Democratic Party’s cutting-edge outreach program.
Democratic Party leadership, including Mrs. Clinton, gushed that they were “well aware of the very important concerns that middle America has.”
In a speech to one important Democratic-leaning organization, Mrs. Clinton said that
I grew up in middle America. I know how important the Soviet threat is to middle America today. The Soviet Union has infiltrated the highest levels of government. I have seen electronic communications that prove their collusion with important media figures and their insidious control over our very electoral process.
The organization, a tight-knit and patriotic group concerned with foreign influence on the United States political process, welcomed Hillary Clinton and applauded her efforts to fight the Soviet Union.
Clinton excoriated Republicans for their “intransigence” in not fixing important security holes in the way the United States holds elections.
“It is imperative that we verify that people who come to the polling booth are in fact eligible to vote,” said Clinton. “Yet Republicans, who benefit from the lack of basic security procedures used by every other advanced Western democracy, block this simple and effective measure to reduce vote fraud.”
Clinton also chastised Republicans for extending the voting period “in state after state. In some states, the voting period is over a month long. Longer voting periods make it very easy for criminal elements to conspire to change the results of close elections. Instead of having to keep polling places secure for one day, communities must keep a twenty-four hour watch for days or weeks. Add to this the Republican drive to increase absentee voting, and it’s almost as if Republicans designed our voting system to facilitate fraud.”
“I have here in my hand,” Mrs. Clinton added, “irrefutable proof that many high-ranking Republicans are spies for the Soviet Union. If these documents were not classified, I would place them on a public server for all to view, but the law requires probity.”
In concluding her speech, Clinton praised the group. “The John Birch Society is today the best organization of patriotic Americans I have ever seen. You recognize the Soviet threat when others dismiss it. You understand the conspiracies that tear at the heart of this nation.”
Clinton promised to bring the Society’s message to the United States Electoral College, set to vote on Tuesday, December 20.
“Together, we can fight this chilling conspiracy,” Mrs. Clinton told the audience. Each of the four members of the Society applauded her impassioned speech.
