A U.S. Congressman from California who is known best for promulgating the leftist conspiracy theory that President Donald J. Trump “colluded” with the Russians to win the presidency has announced his own candidacy for the 2020 race.
“U.S. Representative Eric Swalwell said on Monday he would seek the Democratic nomination for president, joining a crowded field seeking to take on Republican Donald Trump in the 2020 election,” said a Reuters report.
The Democrat’s announcement will be made public on CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” which will air late Monday night. Colbert is a known leftist political operative who masquerades as a comedian.
Swalwell is best known for his voluminous cable news appearances during which he conspiracy theorized about Trump being an asset of a hostile foreign power. Even after Attorney General William Barr released the findings of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s lengthy investigation, which cleared Trump of collusion and obstruction of justice, Swalwell still called Trump a “traitor.”
He also had an internet dust up with Second Amendment supporters who claimed that they would never turn their guns over to the federal government, saying that such a demand would cause a civil war. In response, Swalwell suggested using nuclear weapons on American citizens.
“And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But they’re legit. I’m sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities,” Swalwell said on Twitter.
He enters an already-crowded Democratic primary field, which includes Democratic Party Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Kamala Harris (Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Failed U.S. Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke has entered the race, as have former Obama administration official Julian Castro of Texas, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), Mayors Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
Two heavy hitters, former Vice President Joe Biden and failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams are both considering entering the race.

DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County
Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.
Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:
“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”
The rest of Judge’s Thomason’s ruling can be found here.
“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”
Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
BREAKING: A judge ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million ballots from Arizona’s most populous county so it can audit results of the 2020 election.
