In a new Op-Ed for “The Hill” Juan Williams claims Republicans are “preparing the ground to steal an election” in 3 steps.
According to Juan, step one:
Step One — Don’t mention Jan. 6, 2021. If it comes up, say Trump’s violent radicals did not stop certification of President Biden’s win over Trump. It was just like a “tourist visit,” according to one GOP congressman, Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.). Too bad for him he was photographed that day with a look of terror on his face.
Next, prevent a bipartisan, independent commission from looking into the violent Republican riot.
Juan then warns step 2 is coming:
Step Two — Change election laws in states with GOP-majority legislatures. New laws in Georgia, for example, take power away from independent election boards and the secretary of state to certify election results.
Georgia’s new laws give unprecedented power to the Republican legislature to determine the winner of the 2024 election. They can override local and state election officials in certifying votes.
Followed by Step 3:
Step Three — Suppress the votes of people who are unlikely to back Republicans: young people, college-educated whites, poor people, union members, working women, Blacks, Latinos and Asians.
And the final Step 4:
The final plank in the GOP plan for Jan. 6, 2025, is to stop Biden from achieving any legislative act to move the country forward.
Juan concludes that “People who love America need to face this threat to democracy and act with urgency. “
