Election denier Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) attacked democracy at least 100 times by questioning the integrity of American elections, according to Republican National Committee’s research exclusively obtained by Breitbart News.

Jeffries, minority leader of House Democrats, has cast doubt on the integrity of American elections by way of seven different categories: legitimacy, cheating, rigged, fake, artificial, hoax, and ‘so-called.”

The seven ways in which Jeffries attacked democracy were spewed into the public domain for years via Twitter, TV, and political speeches.

The tabulation goes back as far as 2017 after former President Donald Trump defeated two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Jeffries is not the only Democrat to deny election results. Over 150 examples show that many Democrats have denied the integrity of elections, including Hillary Clinton, President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), then-Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), and then-Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA).
