Sen. John Barrasso told FNC's Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures" that the Democrats are seeking to "undermine elections and the integrity of elections in this country, making it easier for Democrats to cheat."
BARTIROMO: Senator, it's all quite convenient, with about a year to go before the midterm elections. It doesn't appear that the Democrats can win on policy. So what are we going to do, have a lockdown in the summer of 2022, so that we ensure mail-in ballots are flowing from empty parking lots and dead people?
BARRASSO: Well, I think you're right on line on that, Maria, which is why I see what the Democrats are trying to do now.
They have a two-pronged approach. The one is these very liberal policies that are coming forward on amnesty and on the civilian climate corps, the things that are expensive, that we can't afford, that are bad for the country, bad policy.
And then there's this second track, which is to undermine elections and the integrity of elections in this country, making it easier for Democrats to cheat. What they want to do, that's their number one priority bill was S.1., which said, OK, you don't need to have voter I.D. anymore. Oh, and let's have ballot harvesting where they have their paid operatives go door to door and pick up ballots.
And then, of course, they want the government to fund the elections. All of these things undermine the elections. And on top of that, they want to make the District of Columbia a state with two more Democrat senators, making it much harder for Republicans to take the Senate.
And then, finally, they're talking about stacking the Supreme Court. And under that circumstance, they want to put -- they have legislation to put four more justices on the Supreme Court now, which would then take you to 13. Of course, they'd be four liberal justices put forth by President Biden.
That's how they undermine the structure and the stability of the United States.
BARTIROMO: Well, meanwhile, the DOJ is warning the states, don't even think about auditing anything about election 2020, the department warning states to tread carefully in auditing elections.
Are they getting political?
BARRASSO: Well, it does sound that way to me.
Look, the integrity of the elections comes to the states. The states need to make their own decisions. Part of what the Democrats are trying to do with S.1 is take the power for elections away from the states, give it to the federal government, so they can have unilateral control, making it much easier for them to cheat and determine the outcome of elections.
BARTIROMO: Wow. What a state of affairs, just extraordinary.
John Barrasso, thanks very much for walking us through it all. It's great to see you this morning.
We will be watching this next two-week crunch time, for sure, and whether or not you get a summer recess.
BARRASSO: I don't care about the recess. I care about the future of the country.
