Armed Services Chair: “Confident” Officials In Charge Will Oversee Fair Election | MSNBC 1


Chairman Adam Smith tells Ali Velshi that it’s almost far-fetched to believe that local and state courts would go against the will of the American people at the ballot box. But even still, “we have to be vigilant, we have to report on it” to make sure that even a far-fetched idea doesn’t become a reality after the election. Aired on 09/25/2020.

  1. 3 1/2 years ago I was confident that the Republicans would keep tRump in check. We see how that turned out. Trust nothing!!

  2. I’m not confident at all no matter what happens the prospect of violence on Election Day is almost guarantee thanks to the rhetoric of Donald Trump he’s turned his already violent followers into armed militia who will stop at nothing to make sure he maintains power hello as we know through the past actions and deeds of the white nationalist who follow Trump they have no problem Killing American citizens

  3. Im not confident, there’s to much corruption in the Trump cultists

  4. Its not fair unless trump wins. Not sure how that sounds fair but this is the truth that many of trump believer believes in.


    • 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂you trust Oompa Loompa with your life😂🤣😂🤣😂✌️😂

    • Real men👉JOE BIDEN 2020 💥He might forget us but he won’t DESTROY U.S trump sold U.S 2russia” then spends weekend golfing💨

  6. This isn’t about supporting a political party or even a political candidate. It’s about saving our democracy at the polls: the right to vote and have that vote counted and a peaceful transition of power. Vote as early as possible (, complete the census and help two people outside your household to do the same. Ben Franklin after the Constitutional Convention in 1778 is believed to have been asked, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

  7. Democrats and Independents need to make a tRump defeat “TOO BIG TO RIG!!”

  8. You’re dreaming, he’s picking the Supreme Court justice that’s going to ensure he steals the election.


  10. We need to start framing this question in a way that lets the opposing side know that it genuinely is a serious question about an issue that’s truly important. For example, “So will we have a peaceful transfer of power, or does somebody have to shoot him?”

      Just make him shake hands with all of those (disgusting people- Trump’s words) who support him. Then he can get COVID-19 and be one of the “no bodies,” who died because they were “old,” like him.

    • 😃😀😀. Exactly! That’s how it needs to be worried. I do not understand why Trump thinks that if he says it’s not legitimate, because he didn’t win, it isn’t the right outcome. He’s insane. Every state should either have all mail in voting. With one official from each side overseeing the process. Not touching, but watching. Or, online voting. This poll stuff is for the birds, especially with covid 19. Plus there are never enough polling booths, especially in black communities. And it is designed that way, to suppress votes. That choice should be up to the people, not the senate, as to how we prefer to vote.

  11. Support the Democrats trying to unseat vulnerable Senators and keep the House.

    A fair election is being threatened by Trump, Barr and the Republicans. We need to ensure that they fail. They want us to feel disheartened and not vote. DO NOT LET THEM. We must and will vote. Vote blue.

  13. How many times does Trump have to announce ON VIDEO he will cheat in this election before he is DISQUALIFIED and charged with ATTEMPTED ELECTION FRAUD and CAMPAIGN FINANCE VIOLATIONS??? He has been telling people ON VIDEO to vote twice, said ON VIDEO he will accept election interference from other countries, is purposefully spreading false voter information ON VIDEO to dissuade people from voting by mail, says ON VIDEO he is stacking the Supreme Court to rule in his favor against State’s rights in the election, vowing not to have a peaceful transfer of power, illegally slowing the mail to subvert the election, is ON TAPE with Michael Cohen creating a fake company to give hush money to people before the 2016 election, investigations into breaking campaign finance laws in the last election abound, etc… what does the man got to do???

    • Elaine Johnson I agree, this is, 4 years of pure circus 🎪 shenanigans. Enough already! All this has been happening the entire time he’s been in office. Maybe if he actually shot someone on 5th Avenue? Jeeze..🤨 He should have been LEADING instead of TWEETING. Apparently that’s all he does at all hours of the night after he’s golfed while Americans were dying..

  14. This man has a lot of faith in this country and its people despite the fact that the situation in this country was brought by its people to this level. And this man ended the video with the message of “be prepared” so he’s not as confident after a video that is less than 2 minutes long.

  15. I’d like the generals to commit to peace at this point.

  16. Has this guy been PAYING ATTENTION???
    He should know by now not to put ANYTHING past trump’s loyal subjects.

  17. No Republican Senator should hold the power of government or the presidency again! They have shown throughout history and vividly in recent times their full incompetence! I believe that if Hitler was American, Senate Republican would support a Hitler type Republican if it meant they could hold more power than the constitution grants!

  18. The world needs to send international observers to guarantee US citizens a fair election! It looks awfully like a dictatorship forming….

  19. One factor that could make Smith’s argument here invalid: if the whole GOP is compromised because of the Russian money that went into their election campaign, they will stop at nothing to prevent a Democratic victory, which would free up the DOJ and the courts to prosecute and finally follow the money, which Mueller was not allowed to do.

  20. Send in the in the UN observers.
