2018 Is The Most Important Election In The History Of Mankind (This Time We Really Mean It!)

2018 Is The Most Important Election In The History Of Mankind (This Time We Really Mean It!) The 2018 midterm is certainly not the most important election in history, nor in your lifetime. Unless, that is, you’re two years old.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is set to receive his final briefing on election security Thursday before polls close next Tuesday. The Justice Department last month charged the first person, a Russian national, with attempting to interfere in the 2018 midterm elections .

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is set to receive his final briefing on election security Thursday before polls close next Tuesday.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders says Trump asked for a "status update on the security and integrity of Tuesday's election."

Sanders says top homeland security and intelligence officials will be present, including FBI Director Christopher Wray, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.

The Justice Department last month charged the first person, a Russian national, with attempting to interfere in the 2018 midterm elections.

U.S. intelligence agencies also jointly asserted last month that Russia, China, Iran and other countries are engaged in continuous efforts to influence American policy and voters in the upcoming elections and beyond.

Trump Is About to Get a Rude Awakening.
In the lead-up to the midterm elections, President Trump tried to have it both ways. “I'm not on the ballot, but in a certain way, I'm on the ballot,” he told supporters, yet he also made clear that he wouldn’t take the blame if Republicans did poorly. And in the end, he sort of got it both ways. Democrats handily won the House of Representatives, picking up about 34 seats. But Republicans gained seats in the Senate and limited losses in governor’s races. Anyone hoping that Tuesday’s results would deliver a clean verdict on the Trump presidency, either up or down, was disappointed, even as voters told exit pollsters that Trump was the dominant factor in the election.
