Harry Reid Claims Russians “Manipulated” 2016 Vote Totals in Baseless Conspiracy Theory

He provided no evidence.

Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid claimed that Russian hackers supposedly altered vote totals in the 2016 election to ensure Donald Trump’s victory. Reid makes the sensational claim in an upcoming book previewed by a Washington Post reporter.

I think one reason the elections weren’t what they should have been was because the Russians manipulated the votes. It’s that simple,” said the former Senate Democrat leader. “It doesn’t take a math expert to understand that by changing a few votes, the outcome will be different. So, I have no doubt.

Reid’s conspiracy has no basis. Even former President Barack Obama spoke before the 2016 election on the impossibility of such an election “hack,” pointing out that the decentralized nature of the American electoral system would render such an electronic operation beyond possibility.

While Reid’s conspiracy on the election is without merit, there’s data that suggests that his views on the matter are shared by a significant percentage of Democrats.

Progressives had accused President Donald Trump of undermining the integrity of the election for raising concerns of voter fraud before the election, a routine they continue to carry out today. It seems commitment to democratic elections starts and stops with contests that Democrats(upper-case D) are victorious in.

Rap artist and businessman Kanye West announced that he would be running for President in a surprise Saturday tweet; surprising some political commentators on what would be a late entry to the 2020 election. However, the Montana resident and businessman declined to specifically confirm that he would be running in the 2020 election, which is merely four months away.

West generally trends conservative and adopted pious Christian views several years ago; changing the subject matter of his music to better reflect biblical themes. He’s maintained a warm relationship with President Trump, speaking of his opposition to stifling political correctness in the entertainment industry; the rapper even stated that he planned to cast his first ever vote for President Trump in the 2020 election.

Should he run in this election, it seems more likely that West would be at least inclined to vote for himself.

However, West’s appeal to the black community could mean that he serves as a de facto spoiler taking away enough votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden to prevent the party elder figure from securing a November victory.

West was edited into the Wikipedia article for the pending 2020 presidential election hours within his tweet, being featured as a major party candidate in the election summary of the page.

Kanye West is yet to file a declaration of candidacy with the Federal Elections Committee, and it’s too late for him to get on the ballot on many major American states, raising questions about the timing or seriousness of his supposed 2020 campaign. However, the colorful musician could be referring to a 2024 campaign.
