She’s trying to get ahead of any claim by Trump that, if he loses, the election must have been rigged. But her framing does not account for the possibility that the election may be electronically manipulated to favor TRUMP as occurred in 2016. 1/
Her framing thus stands a strong chance of backfiring because it may be the DEMOCRATS who need to challenge a rigged outcome. This is effectively the corner that Obama backed us into in 2016 when he claimed (falsely) that our elections are insecure. 2/
What she should do instead (among other things) is subpoena voting machine vendor ES&S to compel them to disclose where they installed remote access software & cellular modems & PUBLICLY demand their removal. 3/
Pretending our Swiss Cheese elections are secure has already proven to be a losing strategy. 4/
