WATCH: Psaki Brings The Receipts While Slamming McConnell’s Voting Rights Comments

On Wednesday morning, Mitch McConnell was asked about Democratic efforts to make voting easier. The Senate Majority Leader and the GOP have been working overtime to enforce voter suppression in the states they control.

McConnell told reporters that the Democrats are lying about Republican efforts in regards to voting. When Jen Psaki was asked about his comments, she was ready.

The press secretary went through a number of examples:

  • Michigan Republicans have been replacing members of county boards of canvassers who voted to certify the 2020 election results, and are replacing them in some cases with individuals who ascribed to the Big Lie.
  • Georgia passed a law that allows the state legislature to control the state election board, and in turn allows the state election board to remove local election officials who manage the voting and counting process.
  • Texas passed a law that makes it easier for partisan poll watchers to hover around people while they vote and intimidate them.
  • Montana passed a law that repeals same-day voter registration, makes it harder for people to vote by mail.
  • And Republicans in Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin have been pursuing purported audits of the 2020 election, something that’s been thrown out of eighty courts in service of the Big Lie.

Psaki closed, “So, if that is not making it more difficult to vote, I don’t know what is, and maybe Mr. McConnell has a different definition of that.”
