The Democratic Party is kicking off the most complicated get-out-the-vote campaign in history — all without knocking on a door.

The party’s virtual convention marked the unofficial start of a massive public education, voter contact and legal strategy to make voting by mail a success in the fall, a huge priority for Joe Biden’s campaign. Record high numbers of people plan to vote by mail due to the coronavirus pandemic, and that group skews heavily Democratic, according to polling and absentee ballot request data.

Democrats are more interested in finding a way to steel the election and dispute the result than in looking after Americans in need of Financial Assistance because it will not add to their ballot's, they can pass a stimulus at the last moment or offer huge amounts of free money if they win in 2020.

‘Not just a low-wage recession’: White-collar workers feel coronavirus squeeze. The drop in overall employment that white-collar industries have seen in five months is already on par with or worse than the hits they took during the Great Recession.

Getting COVID-19 financial relief to millions of Americans in need is not a priority for Democrats, working out a way to contest the 2020 Election Results through USPS vote by mail the is the priority. Americans in desperate need of financial help will have to wait until such time as the Democrats see a political advantage in helping out those in need.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) accused House Democrats of “ignoring urgent needs” of Americans in passing legislation that includes $25 billion to boost the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), calling it a “piecemeal Postal Bill.”

A group of Republican senators reportedly met Thursday with White House counsel Pat Cipollone, as well as senior presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway, and Jared Kushner, son-in-law of US President Donald Trump, to discuss a strategy regarding the ongoing impeachment probe against the president launched earlier by Democrats in the House.

Senior Trump administration officials and Senate Republicans agree that a full trial should be conducted if the US House of Representatives impeaches Trump, Politico reported, citing unnamed sources.

According to sources cited by the media outlet, the White House seeks evidence of a commitment to due process, particularly as Republicans criticize Democrats for how they are conducting the impeachment proceedings. 

Republican Senators reportedly noted, during the meeting, that there are not enough votes to approve a motion to dismiss the trial, stressing that it would take just three Republicans to block any impeachment vote on the Senate floor, Politico said, citing sources.

“Different people have different opinions of what to do but the main message [is] that a motion to dismiss won’t fly [...] They understand it because we’re hitting the House on lack of due process. Most trials you at least hear the evidence first", the source said, cited by Politico.

House Democrats allege that Trump pressed Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to open a probe into the Bidens by withholding nearly $400 million in US military aid - a charge Republicans deny, pointing to the release of the cash several weeks prior to a July 25 request by Trump, even though Ukraine never launched a Biden investigation.

Democrats have blocked a Republican request to subpoena Hunter Biden to testify.

Trump declassified what the White House claims is the full, unedited transcript of his telephone call with Zelensky. The president denied wrongdoing in his dealings with Ukraine. Trump has also inexplicably attempted to paint the impeachment inquiry as a political "witch hunt" by Democrats aimed at reversing the outcome of the 2016 US presidential election.

House Democrats in the ongoing impeachment inquiry have scheduled testimony this week from eight witnesses.

Former Vice President Joe Biden publicly admitted that, as US vice president, he threatened to withhold some $1 billion in US military aid unless Ukraine dismissed a prosecutor who was investigating a company that employed his son, Hunter.
