[See NewsBusters for more.] On Tuesday's installment of Deadline: White House, host Nicolle Wallace claimed that her status as a former Republican gives her the ability to say that the GOP knows it needs to suppress the vote in order to win, thus proving President Biden correct when he said earlier in the day that Republicans pose the greatest threat to democracy since the Civil War.
Wallace began by quoting PBS White House correspondent and MSNBC contributor Yamiche Alcindor's tweets, "that was one of President Biden's most passionate speeches of his presidency, possibly of his entire career. He's saying very clearly this is a crisis as important as to what led to the Civil War. He said 'peddlers of lies are threatening the very foundation of our country.'"
