On Super Tuesday, March 3, 2020, Utah will help decide the Democratic Party’s nominee for president of the United States. To a lesser extent they will be voting for the Republican nominee, because Donald Trump has little opposition in the state.
Regardless of your political preference, if you believe in our republic and the Constitution on which it is based, you must be concerned about election security and the meddling of foreign countries in our elections.
The major player is Russia. Part One of the Mueller report clearly outlines this threat. It is a must-read for all citizens.
Mueller identifies the operatives in the GRU by name and the address of the building in Moscow where those direct threats to our election were developed and activated. The report is widely available for free download in both audio and print formats. Candidate positions on handling the security of our elections should be a consideration in your decision.
It is clear President Trump and Attorney General William Barr don’t want you to read it. They want you to accept their comments as truth. Trump has actively engaged in disinformation and has failed to support government agencies that are working to secure our elections.
Before casting a vote on Super Tuesday, learn the facts, read the Mueller report and supporting documents such as the World Wide Threat Assessment. You may change your mind on who to vote for in 2020.
