Appearing on MSNBC on Saturday morning, authoritarian expert Sarah Kendzior expressed worry about the upcoming midterm elections, casting doubt of election security at the polls as the Russians continue their hacking attempts.
Speaking with AM Joy host Joy Reid, Kenzior explained hacking is “still directly focused on Democrats.”
“People are not worried enough,” she explained. “They haven’t been all along. Russia has been attacking our infrastructure for a number of years. They have attacked the State Department, the DoD, RNC, DNC, voter rolls, they’ve penetrated voter databases. We’ve known this a long time. As has been pointed out, people haven’t taken initiatives. There are basically three things I’m worried about, going into the midterms.”
“One is that we actually be hacked again by Russia again, that they may actually succeed at this,” she remarked, adding GOP candidates may also claim “the election is going to be rigged.”
“The third thing is that the GOP may simply not concede. We need to remember Roy Moore, for example, never conceded. This is a party not interested in democracy. They want a one-party state to protect the president whose loyalty is not to this country. And I think they will go through any means necessary to do that,” she concluded.

Trump defender Kingston shamed into silence by MSNBC’s Joy Reid after blizzard of lies on impeachment
MSNBC host Joy Reid showed no patience with former Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) on Sunday morning as the advocate for the re-election of Donald Trump repeatedly was called out for lying about the facts of the Ukraine corruption case against Donald Trump as well as the House impeachment trial.
Sitting on a panel with the Intercept's Mehdi Hasan, Kingston was given the first crack at addressing the defense case put forth by Trump's lawyers on the Senate floor on Saturday, only to be pulled up short by the MSNBC host after stating a falsehood, for which he received an admonishment.
With Kingston claiming Democratic members of the Senate who are currently running for their party's presidential nomination did not attend the Saturday hearing, Reid quickly cut him off.

Fox News poll delivers devastating news to Trump on impeachment
According to a new Fox News poll released on Sunday morning, a clear majority of respondents -- beyond the margin of error -- believe Donald Trump should be convicted by the U.S. Senate for impeachable crimes and removed from office.
According to the poll, "On impeachment, by a 50-44 percent margin, voters think the Senate should vote to convict Trump and remove him from office. Most Democrats say remove (81 percent) and most Republicans disagree (84 percent). Among independents, more say Trump should be removed by a 19-point margin (53-34 percent)."
