Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it’s first reported.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) blocks two bills that would ban voting machines from being connected to the internet and require campaigns to alert the authorities if another country offers assistance with winning an election.

Blackburn accuses the Democrat legislators who introduced the bills as trying to push forward legislation that they already knew Republicans would block, in an effort to rally more campaign donations. Blackburn will later tell Republican voters that the coronavirus isn’t really that bad; Democrats just want you at home so they can control you.

The two bills join a pile of at least 10 other election security measures that the GOP-controlled Senate has blocked or voted against.

House Democrats have passed several election-related bills, including a sweeping ethics and election reform measure, but they’ve hit a wall in the GOP-controlled Senate.

A release from Democrats this week that blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for a “legislative graveyard” included a list of 10 election security-related bills that have stalled in the upper chamber.

Senate Democrats have tried repeatedly during the past year to try to bring up election security bills on the floor without success.
