Democrats are looking to get their messaging across to voters after the GOP primary, but some Republicans are trying a different strategy: they’re scrambling to build a case against the use of emails in the 2016 presidential election.
In an interview with Politico, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D -N.Y.) said they are considering a plan to send out emails to potential voters in the event they were inadvertently sent an email that contained classified information.
“If you’re a Republican, you have to be careful, you can’t do anything,” Pelosi told Politico.
“We’re going to be talking to people who are going to receive this email, so if it’s something that they’re not supposed to be receiving, we’ll be sending it to them.”
Democrats have been in a race to win over potential voters and have been pressing their case, including in recent days with emails sent to Democrats that suggested that they were being targeted by hackers who could use them to target Democrats.
However, they were unsuccessful in trying to prevent some Republicans from sending emails containing classified information, Politico reported.
“This is a race that is about trust and honesty and accountability,” Pelosi said.
“There is a great deal of trust and trust and confidence among our citizens, but if we’re going up against these cybercriminals, we’re up against them and it’s going to take some serious work, and we’re not going to get to that place without some serious cooperation and some serious accountability.
That’s what this election is all about.
And if we don’t have that, we may as well not have it at all.”
Democrats also have been focusing their message on the need for greater transparency in the presidential race, which was dominated by emails sent by Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign.
They have also focused on the issues of voter fraud, which has been an issue in the Democratic primaries.
“Democrats have been focused on voter fraud,” Schumer said.
Pelosi agreed that there has been “a lot of talk about it.”
“I think we’re looking at a lot of issues of the importance of the elections,” Pelosi added.
And we’ve been working hard on them and we need to make sure we’re getting the right information to the American people.””
But we have to take a serious look at these issues.
And we’ve been working hard on them and we need to make sure we’re getting the right information to the American people.”
