Michigan, Georgia, Pennsylvania: What do they have in common?

If you guessed, each state has had the President personally ask them to illegally overturn their election results, you are CORRECT.

[www.washingtonpost.com]

"President Trump called the speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives twice during the past week to make an extraordinary request for help reversing his loss in the state, reflecting a broadening pressure campaign by the president and his allies to try to subvert the 2020 election result.

"The president said, 'I'm hearing about all these issues in Philadelphia, and these issues with your law,' " said Cutler spokesman Michael Straub, describing the House speaker's two conversations with Trump. " 'What can we do to fix it?' "

"A White House spokesman declined to comment on the calls to Cutler, and a Trump campaign spokesman did not respond to a request for comment."

The folks in these states need to do what the governor of Arizona did: Turn off the ringer on their phones. Note that one cannot block the president.

Did any of them, out of curiosity, ask "What's in it for me?"

Full blown sedition. What's he go to lose - he thinks he will be ok if he just pardons himself. Where this could blow back is that as well as being federal issues, once he practices sedition in a state, he'll be crossing that line where he can't be pardoned.

Trump the Chump better have some pretty good legal advice on this… this is about the thinnest ice he's been on so far.

A truly fun house, nightmarish scenario popped into my head as I woke from sleep this morning. So completely addlepated and batsh*t crazy, it fits the Republican playbook like a glove.

All this incompetent legal flailing. The summary dismissals. What if that’s the play?

Getting booted out of court over and over without so much as a how do you do, giving his hardwired shills on SCOTUS a toehold to agree to hear a case on the grounds that the matter of the rectitude of the election is ‘too grave’ to not receive full adjudication in a higher court’, the ‘summary’ dismissals ignore vital issues of protecting the sanctity of the election process, yada, yada, yada.

Cue the big, blinking WTF sign. Congressional Republicans — some 90% of whom still will not concede that Biden won the election — roll up their sleeves as they prepare to take the punt and do the heavy lifting of dumping another four year load of Trump on the country.

The Congressional Republicans don’t want another four years of Pres. Trump, either, they just can’t admit it. They know they can stop everything Pres. Biden wants to do. In fact, that is exactly their plan.

And at this point it's not about overturning the election anymore, it's about denying Biden the same number of electoral votes he won in 2016. It's literally turned into a dick-measuring contest between two septuagenarian White dudes. Ick.

If even a fraction of the ‘sources close to the White House’ I’m hearing mentioned are correct, it’s definitely about maintaining the fiction that he won for Trump. His dangerous and monstrously petty campaign to wreck the place on the way out lends credence to that, for me.

Maybe they figure that as long as he thinks he's won, he will do less damage. Time to start feeding him deep fake FOX broadcasts, and then when he leaves the building for his "second inauguration," the locks will get changed.

They have something new in common, along with Wisconsin, they are being sued by Texas in the Supreme Court for "unlawful election results".

This is abuse of our courts and the plaintiff should be held accountable. How would Texas have standing to bring such a suit, even if it were not completely baseless. Which it is.

Pretty well. Lifetime appointments. Many of them fresh out of law school. They'll taint the nation for the better part of the next century.

No need for deep fake, The Epoch Time still has him leading Biden.

yeah, they used to show T 232 and Biden 220 something. Until about a week ago when they removed those numbers. They show the the senate and house results, but not the electoral votes. I am curious what they show after the electoral college vote on Dec 14.

None of his appointees are helping him with what mattered most to him, overturning the election.

Trump should tell his appointees that the country is aborting him.

We'll pay though. We always do when we let a Pandora's Box open up.

They weren’t put there to help him win the election. He thought that was a given. Republicans have put them there to stymy abortion, criminal justice, health care, etc., and to be feeder courts to the Supreme Court.
