Colorado Sec. Of State Threatens To Refer Trump ‘For Prosecution’ In Cases Of Double-Voting




Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold said on Monday she would consider referring President Donald Trump for prosecution in cases where double-voting is suspected in the state.

The threat came days after the president urged voters to test the integrity of election systems by casting both mail-in and in-person ballots, Griswold tweeted that her office is serious about combating voter fraud.



“In Colorado, we take double voting seriously and refer all suspected cases for legal enforcement. If it makes sense, I will include Donald Trump in the referral for prosecution. He may not have presidential immunity anymore depending on the election,” Griswold tweeted.

Griswold said the comment was prompted by an interview with MSNBC in which she discussed the issue of double-voting and wanted to be clear the president would be held accountable.

“It’s important to underline to the president and the U.S. attorney general and anyone who is confused that it’s illegal to double vote,” Griswold told The Denver Post in an interview Monday. “We have safeguards in place, including signature verification, laws on ballot collection, and checking the participation in other states. If the president is causing people to vote twice, he could be partially to blame and we’ll explore the options if it happens.”





When Trump suggested double voting, Griswold fired back in a tweet: “2020 has been unprecedented in so many ways, but I never imagined that as secretary of state I would have to inform both the president & the U.S. attorney general that it is illegal to vote twice.”
