Ousted DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Mocks Trump’s Fraud Claims

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), the ousted DNC chair, suggested on New Day Wednesday that President Trump’s claims that millions of people voted illegally are ridiculous and impossible.

Wasserman Schultz resigned her position at the DNC in July after hacked emails uncovered a massive plot within the Democratic establishment to deny Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) a primary win and deliver the nomination to Hillary Clinton.

“There would have to be massive voter fraud being perpetrated,” Wasserman Schultz said, suggesting that Trump’s claims were preposterous.

“There’s just no possible way that there is rampant cases of dead people voting,” Wasserman Schultz said. “When you die, eventually, you are purged from the registration rolls,” Wasserman Schultz added, while laughing.

During Wasserman Schultz’s tenure as DNC chair, the DNC communications office conspired to push negative narratives about Sanders and his campaign. For instance, multiple DNC staffers suggested pushing the narrative that the Sanders campaign was disorganized and unable to mount a national campaign. More disturbingly though, the DNC appeared to have made efforts to smear Sanders’ atheism when the race turned to more religious communities.

H.A. Goodman, in a piece for The Huffington Post, even went as far as to say that the DNC’s actions personified the definition of a “rigged election.”

Wasserman Schultz’s past record with election-rigging makes her criticism of Trump a curious choice.
