Chaffetz, a Republican who served Utah’s 3rd congressional district from 2009 until his retirement in 2017, told “Fox & Friends” on Friday that Democrats are "using the levers of government to try to negate the 2016 election but then do things in 2020 that they should never, ever do.”
Among the “behind-the-scenes” tactics Democrats are using is “vote harvesting,” Chaffetz claimed.
“If the Democrats had their way, they want to be able to go out and collect everybody’s ballots without you having to go to the poll[s].”
“You could supposedly sign it, but they want to collect this. They did it in California. They took about eight seats from Republicans in California.”
“They did it in California, they did it in Arizona, they want to make it legal,” said Chaffetz, former chair of the House oversight committee.
Chaffetz said his new book, “Power Grab,” is premised on what Democrats are “doing behind the scenes” to invalidate the 2016 election results and undermine the election process.
“There are a lot of tactics and things that they do to try to change the way we’re doing the election. They want to change the Electoral College, they want to make vote harvesting legal, and they’re doing this behind the scenes.”
Chaffetz also said that the “left’s” use of “intimidation” and “shaming” - like the recent suggested Hollywood blacklist of Trump supporters - is actually making President Trump “stronger politically than he has ever been before.”
