Democrat Rep. Hakeem Jeffries is poised to be the new leader for Democrats in the U.S. House. And, despite spending the last two years lambasting so-called Republican “election deniers,” Democrats appointed one of their own election deniers as their new leader.
Here is video of Jeffries from 2019 claiming Russia interfered in the 2016 election and “artificially” made Donald J. Trump president.

“Russia interfered with our election, attacked our democracy for the sole purpose of artificially placing someone at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. They were successful,” Jeffries said.
In addition, Jeffries said that the more we learn about the 2016 election, “the more ILLEGITIMATE it becomes.”
“America deserves to know whether we have a FAKE President in the Oval Office,” he wrote.

Jeffries continued in late November of 2020, saying history would never accept Trump as a “legitimate President.”
The media and Democrats complained about so-called Republican “election deniers” for two years — yet here they are, ignoring the fact the new Democrat leader in the House is himself an election denier.
