After the Democrats pushed the narrative that so-called “election deniers” were threats to Democracy, it seems that the representative poised to replace Nancy Pelosi as the leader of the House Democrats is exactly what they have been warning about.
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), a lawyer from central Brooklyn, appears to be the front-runner to replace Pelosi.
Jeffries is a self-described far-left Democrat who has been vocal about his belief that the outcome of the 2016 election was illegitimate.
“The more we learn about 2016 election the more ILLEGITIMATE it becomes. America deserves to know whether we have a FAKE President in the Oval Office #RussianInterference,” he tweeted in 2018.
In 2020, Jeffries tweeted that former President Donald Trump “will never” be accepted “as a legitimate President.”
“Keep pouting. History will never accept you as a legitimate President,” he directed at Trump.
Again in 2020 he wrote, “Let’s be clear donald. The only person trying to steal the election is YOU. (and your buddies in the Kremlin),” referencing the delusional leftist claim that the Russians helped Trump win the 2016 election.
By their own standards Jeffries is every bit of the “extremist threat” they have been warning will “destroy Democracy.”
Jeffries has spewed anti-police rhetoric and expressed heavy support for BLM, but still some of the more progressive members of the party claim he is too “moderate.”
