The Dem ‘Rigged Election’ Coup?

Demanding the Electoral College choose a different winner.

On Monday, 10 members of the Electoral College led by Christine Pelosi, daughter of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, sent a letter to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper demanding that the 538 electors be briefed on the accusations of Russian interference in the election. The letter stated in part, “We further require a briefing on all investigative findings, as these matters directly impact the core factors in our deliberations of whether Mr. Trump is fit to serve as President of the United States.” Pelosi also demands that Trump prove “he and his staff and advisers did not accept Russian interference, or otherwise collaborate during the campaign, and conclusive disavowal and repudiation of such collaboration and interference going forward.” Evidently, Ms. Pelosi is not familiar with that fundamental concept in our nation’s judicial system: innocent until proven guilty.

Furthermore, how ironic is it with all the decrying by the Leftmedia over “fake news” that these vigilantes of truth would so quickly and unquestioningly pander to an unsubstantiated rumor lacking any credible evidence?

In reality, this is a last-ditch effort by Democrats to steal the election for Hillary Clinton. But even when it fails to swing the electors, at least these sore losers will have sowed the seeds of doubt in the minds of the American people as to the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency.

Those who so hunger for power that they’ll desperately seek to undermine the nation’s fair electoral process and the will of the American people over whom they would have authority should never be trusted with real power. By their actions they prove their own corruption.

This isn’t about protecting the nation from the meddling of foreign powers. If it had been, why didn’t Barack Obama act on this concern when it was first voiced months ago? In fact, he and other Democrats spent the last six months belittling any suggestion of a “rigged” election. It’s only now, after a stunning election loss, that they’re suddenly sounding the alarm. And it’s a transparent political play in the guise of concern for national security. January 20th can’t come soon enough.
