Colorado reporter fact-checks Megyn Kelly: No, you can’t print ballots from home

Published

on

A Denver, Colorado news outlet corrected Fox News host Megyn Kelly’s allegations over a Colorado law that she said “opened the door to possible voter fraud.”

Kelly said that the law, signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) last year, “literally allows residents to print ballots from their home computers, then encourages them to turn ballots over to ‘collectors’ in what appears to be an effort to do away with traditional polling places.”

After showing Kelly’s statement, KUSA-TV host Kyle Clark reported on Wednesday night, “We usually reserve our ‘Truth Tests’ for political ads, but that claim is misleading.”

According to KUSA, the law, known as the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act, specifically applies to military and overseas voters, who can received ballots via email and return it with a signed affadavit by regular mail services.

Otherwise, registered voters receive their ballots by regular mail and have the option of dropping them off at a voter service center or casting their vote by mailing their ballots in to elections officials.

Kelly’s statement led to a segment featuring contributor Michelle Malkin and Citizens United President David Bossie, who were promoting a film they argued shows how liberals hijacked the state legislature. Malkin called the overseas vote law “voter fraud Frankenstein.”

Watch Clark’s commentary, as aired on Wednesday, below.

‘All nine justices’ rejected Trump’s claim of absolute immunity: CNN’s Toobin

Published

on

On Thursday, following the Supreme Court's 7-2 ruling that President Donald Trump's taxes are not immune from the Manhattan criminal investigation, CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin broke down the implications of the decision.

"All nine justices reject the position put forth by the president's lawyers in this case," said Toobin. "All nine justices say that the president does not have absolute immunity from a subpoena, and all nine agree that the case has to go back to district court."

"This is a legal defeat for the president, but it may be a practical victory," added Toobin. "The idea that the president can't be subpoenaed is completely rejected but the Supreme Court, and that even the two dissenting justices agree on ... the practical victory for the president is that the legal proceedings will continue. It seems unlikely, given this opinion, that the president will ultimately be able to stop the disclosure of these events to the grand jury in Manhattan, but it's going to take time. I mean, this process will begin again. The district court will get briefings. They may hear evidence. That will be appealed to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, and then losing party will likely go back to the Supreme Court. All of this will take a while."

Trump is ‘running around like a toddler’ and wrecking everything for the GOP: Ex-Jeb Bush strategist

Published

on

On CNN Thursday, former Jeb Bush strategist Tim Miller, a Never Trump conservative, warned there may be no way out for Republicans who have stuck by President Donald Trump and tied their political fortunes to him.

"I imagine ... discussions taking place with the pandemic where it is, which is bad, but it's also getting worse," said anchor John Berman. "So what do the consultants do or think about if this situation continues to get worse? How do you run on a situation even worse than this in October or November?"

"Maybe from lack of imagination, but, you know, I'm not sure that that's the case. You know, it's always darkest before completely black, as John McCain would say," said Miller. "I think these guys are stuck with him. You know, at this point they're pregnant, you know, they're past pregnant, you know? Their Trump kid is now running around as a toddler right now."
