October 29, 2020, Episode 33: “Election Jitters.” America’s upcoming presidential election is causing unprecedented jitters. Tens of thousands of mail ballots have been erroneously issued or gone astray. Both Trump and Biden say they will only accept the results if the election “is not rigged.” Revelations of undenied emails implicating Biden in a robust Chinese kick-back scheme—with Twitter and major media censoring the information—has thrown the campaigns into last-minute chaos. Political street violence has already broken out. Variations in mail-in deadlines among the states and ballot discrepancies guarantee that election night will become weeks of uncertainty, claims, and counterclaims. Seasoned political strategist Josh Block, top crisis manager Juda Engelmayer, and threat analyst Ken Abramowitz join Edwin to examine the last-minute controversies and consequences.
