Election Fairness Or Politics?: DOJ Targets GOP Voting Law

The Department of Justice is suing the state of Georgia over its Republican-led voting rights bill. U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on Friday said Georgia’s election reform law was passed, “with the purpose of denying or abridging the right of Black Georgians to vote on account of their race or color.” The provisions the DOJ will target include a ban on government entities from handing out unsolicited absentee ballots, fines on civic groups, places of worship and advocacy groups for distributing follow-up absentee ballots. One of the more notable changes in the Peach State’s voting rights law is that it eliminates signature matching and requires an ID to vote if an individual requests and casts an absentee ballot. This has been criticized by Democrats because they say it makes it more difficult to vote by mail. However, the law also provides Georgia voters who don’t have a photo ID with several different options to confirm their identity when requesting a ballot. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger joins to explain why the DOJ’s claims against the voting rights bill are incorrect and why he is confident his state will succeed in court.

On Sunday June 27th, the U.S. military forces carried out airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, targeting Iran-backed militia groups responsible for the drone attacks on American military. According to the official statement from the Pentagon, President Biden authorized these strikes in order to deter any further attacks on U.S. personnel stationed in Iraq. Retired 4-Star General, Chairman of the Institute for the Study of War and Fox News Senior Strategic Analyst General Jack Keane joins to explain how the recent airstrike on Iranian-backed militias sends a clear message of deterrence to Iran, what kind of retaliation President Biden should expect and how rising tensions may impact the U.S. joining the Iran Nuclear Deal again.
