MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow reported on the bombshell report that Russia was actively seeking to help reelect Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
Maddow read a quote from the New York Times report.
“Intelligence officials warned House lawmakers last week that Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump re-elected … last week’s briefing did contain what appeared to be new information … that Russia intended to interfere with the 2020 Democratic primaries as well as the general election,” the newspaper reported.
Maddow gave her analysis.
“This is specific information from multiple U.S. intelligence agencies conveyed behind closed doors to the Intelligence Committee,” she noted.
“It is on! Russia is running an op to try to help reelect Donald Trump in 2020,” Maddow reported. “According to the intelligence agencies, it is underway, and for the first time we are hearing that this interference this time around will include trying to target or somehow get inside the Democratic primary process as well.”
“Here we go again,” she added.
America is on pace for record-shattering early voter turnout — including in critical states: report
On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that voters are casting early ballots in numbers on track to set a historic record — including in some critical battleground states.
"Early-voting counts suggest a record level of civic participation before Election Day. The tens of millions of ballots already cast show highly enthusiastic voters are making sure their votes are counted amid a pandemic," said the report.
15.8 million people in battleground states have already voted, and in some states, like Michigan and Wisconsin, more people have voted early so far than did in the entire early voting period of 2016. In North Carolina, meanwhile, 2 million ballots have been cast — more than double the same amount at this point in 2016.

‘Trump is too stupid to realize he may get to his most feared number on COVID-19 deaths’: Keith Olbermann
Host and progressive paragon Keith Olbermann has been issuing "worst person in the world" videos in which he makes a new case each week that President Donald Trump is the worst person and why.
He began by citing that COVID-19 is continuing to surge, with the astounding number of just over a 30 percent increase in the past two weeks. In Texas, hospitalizations are up 35 percent in as many weeks. Even the first lady can't get over her symptoms of the virus
"We could be just a month -- perhaps just days -- away from the exact same nightmarish, healthcare scenes and draconian closures and even lockdowns that snuck up on the proactively stupid, the psychotically self-absorbed, and the criminally negligent murders -- you know, on Donald Trump," he explained.
