Rigged: The ‘Impartial’ Debate Commission Launches An Attack On Trump Before 3rd Debate

A member of the “impartial” Commission on Presidential Debates has launched a rebuke of President Trump before the third debate.

The attack on the President exposes that the “impartial” commission is actually a bunch of partisan liberal hacks and never-Trumpers.

“The president’s apparent strategy is to challenge the validity of the election should he lose,” John Danforth, a Republican and former US senator from Missouri who has been on the commission since 1994, wrote in a Washington Post op-ed Tuesday. “We saw this strategy initially in his claims that mail-in ballots are the tools for massive election fraud. Now we see it as well in his assertion that the debates have been rigged by the commission to favor former Vice President Joe Biden.”

And here is the big revel (we added the bold for emphasis)…

Danforth wrote that he has maintained a “strict vow of silence” regarding personal feelings about the campaign, but now that the President and his supporters “have attacked the commission’s integrity, I feel compelled to respond.

This isn’t the first time Danforth has attacked the President.

“Trump is always eager to tell people that they don’t belong here, whether it’s Mexicans, Muslims, transgender people or another group. His message is, “You are not one of us’,” Danforth wrote in a Washington Post op-ed posted online Thursday evening. “And when he has the opportunity to unite Americans, to inspire us, to call out the most hateful among us, the KKK and the neo-Nazis, he refuses.”

The “impartial” (sarcasm) member of the Commission continued, “the conclusion that any commission member would eschew fair play to push a partisan position is, to put it mildly, ironic.”

“The same people who decline to extend the presumption of fairness to members of the commission rightly assert that Amy Coney Barrett will put aside her personal beliefs on the Supreme Court,” he wrote. “But more importantly, the attack is just wrong.”

Danforth wants us to ignore the fact that the Debate Commission made a last-minute change to the second Presidential debate and now without negotiating with the campaigns is allowing moderators to mute the microphones of those speaking.

Danforth wrote that he is speaking for himself and that if he wished to help Biden, “the last thing on my mind would have been to restrain the technique President Trump exhibited in the first debate.”

With the final debate just hours away we can only imagine what a liberal hack from the media, that’s cozied up to Obama is going to do with the power to mute President Trump.

The commission has lost its credibility.
