House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) claimed he would support Democrats amending the Constitution to do away with the Electoral College.
In a Friday interview on HBO’s “Real Time”, Schiff told host Bill Maher that he supported making several structural changes to the Constitution.
“I think we’re better off focusing on discrete amendments to the Constitution to overturn Citizens United and make sure that we can have elections untampered or uninfluenced by excessive expenditures and dark money,” Schiff told Maher.
Schiff then said he’d favor eliminating the Electoral College, but didn’t elaborate as to why after being interrupted with applause.
“And I would favor doing away with the Electoral College system, which I think is…”
This comes as Democrats are floating massively radical changes to the U.S. government, including packing the Supreme Court, which Biden has repeatedly refused to answer he would do if elected.
As we’ve reported, Democrats are calling for many radical changes to the governmental system before the election because they’re terrified they will lose to Trump again in November.
For example, Democrats are determined to make Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico states to pack the Senate with more Democrats.
And last month, The View’s Joy Behar begged Democrats to get rid of the Electoral College before the election because Trump could “pull off” winning again.
Fortunately, to make such a change would require two-thirds majority votes of the House and Senate, and the Senate majority is Republican and would unlikely approve of such a measure, especially before the election.
President Trump is taking fire from all sides as he continues to reassure the Country that he wont stop fighting.
