Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is accusing Republicans and President Trump of trying to sabotage the United States Postal Service (USPS) in an effort to steal the 2020 election.
The wild conspiracy theory suggests that this is actually a “Trump strategy.”
Clinton shared an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer which covered residents’ frustrations over mail delays, blaming staffing shortages for the poor service.
“I fear Republican sabotage of the USPS, including slowing mail delivery, is a Trump strategy to make voting by mail more difficult this fall,” Clinton tweeted. “Request your ballots and return them as early as you can.”

Why is voting – whether by mail or in the use of voter ID – only ‘difficult’ for Democrat voters ? If voter ID suppresses the vote, wouldn’t it equally do so for either party?
And if the postal service failed to deliver ballots on time, wouldn’t it apply across the board?
The bigger question here is why do Democrats think their own voters are too stupid to get their vote in at a local polling station?
Conspiracy theories aside, Clinton’s accusation involves some serious next-level planning on President Trump’s part.
First, Democrats have been pushing for mail-in voting for months now, using the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse to promote a voting method which some experts have posited is a means of facilitating voter fraud .
At the same time, the USPS delivery issues are due to staffing shortages caused by, you guessed it … the coronavirus.
The staff has been reduced due to positive cases, while demand has gone up as Democrat lawmakers suppress the economy by keeping people at home, increasing the need for online orders and delivery.
This must be that 4-D chess they always talk about President Trump playing. Use a virus brought into America by China. Get Democrats to use it as an excuse for mail-in voting . Then, sabotage the postal service in an effort to stop it.
Seems almost as plausible as that other conspiracy theory Hillary has been harping on for years. The one about collusion with the Russians.
I fear Democrat sabotage of the election, including colluding with foreign agents to collect and distribute false information to media co-conspirators in order to weaponize our law enforcement & intell communities to spy on Republicans. Wait, she already did that. 👇🏻 https://t.co/6jEY1bAk6b

Reality Begs to Differ
There is reality, and there is whatever goes on in Hillary Clinton’s head.
And the reality is the USPS would likely favor Democrat Joe Biden in the upcoming election, just as they did for Hillary in 2016.
A report in July of 2017 indicates the postal service, according to a government watchdog group, actually broke the law in allowing their employees to support Mrs. Clinton.
Fox News reported that the Office of Special Counsel had “determined the USPS ‘engaged in systemic violations’ of the Hatch Act, a federal law that limits certain political activities of federal employees.”
“The United States Postal Service violated federal law by letting employees do union-funded work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and other Democratic candidates while on leave from the agency,” the report indicated at the time.
Would you feel comfortable with your ballot in the hands of the USPS?
