The Warning

NN, Montag, 04. Januar 2021, 00:25 (vor 15 Tagen) @ NN

(CNN)All 10 living former US defense secretaries declared that the US presidential election is over in a forceful public letter published in The Washington Post on Sunday as President Donald Trump continues to deny his election loss to Joe Biden.

The letter -- signed by Dick Cheney, James Mattis, Mark Esper, Leon Panetta, Donald Rumsfeld, William Cohen, Chuck Hagel, Robert Gates, William Perry and Ashton Carter -- amounts to a remarkable show of force against Trump's subversion efforts just days before Congress is set to count Electoral College votes.

"Our elections have occurred. Recounts and audits have been conducted. Appropriate challenges have been addressed by the courts. Governors have certified the results. And the electoral college has voted. The time for questioning the results has passed; the time for the formal counting of the electoral college votes, as prescribed in the Constitution and statute, has arrived," the group wrote.

[...]

And while America's top military officer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, told Congress in August that the military won't help settle any election disputes, the group of former Defense secretaries reiterated in their letter that such an effort "would take us into dangerous, unlawful and unconstitutional territory."

"Civilian and military officials who direct or carry out such measures would be accountable, including potentially facing criminal penalties, for the grave consequences of their actions on our republic," the letter states.

Honorable procedural move

Rep. Chip Roy is challenging the seating of the delegations from AZ PA MI WI NV and GA, basically saying if the presidential election in those states was rigged as the president contends, then so are the elections of the House delegation.

They are now taking a recorded vote.

He's putting other GOP members on record. Hard for them to say the vote for House members is valid, and then say on Wednesday that the presidential vote should be ruled invalid. It's a sideswipe at Mo Brooks' plan.

If the same sequence of events was unfolding in another country, what would you call it?

How would you describe the political leaders participating in it? If this were Bosnia, Albania, Ecuador or Rwanda, how would you write or talk about it?

Now, apply that standard to us.

President @realDonaldTrump

@GaSecofState
secretly recorded was a “confidential settlement discussion” of that litigation, which is still pending.

Capo Lindsey hatte es auch schon versucht, mit dem Unterschied, dass er Wahlzettel verschwinden lassen wollte:

"I will use my prestige and prominence as a Member of Congress to legitimize the insane rantings of the dumbest corners of internet commentary and the conspiracy theory emails forwarded by your racist great-uncle.

I am doing all this to restore faith in our elections, you see."

'How can you certify an election when the numbers being certified are verifiably WRONG. You will see the real numbers tonight during my speech, but especially on JANUARY 6th. @SenTomCotton Republicans have pluses & minuses, but one thing is sure, THEY NEVER FORGET!'

The “Surrender Caucus” within the Republican Party will go down in infamy as weak and ineffective “guardians” of our Nation, who were willing to accept the certification of fraudulent presidential numbers!

Kein Witz:

The White House officially announces that Devin Nunes will receive the presidential medal of freedom, and calls him "a public servant of unmatched talent, unassailable integrity, and unwavering resolve" who "uncovered the greatest scandal in American history."

You can’t criminally charge a president, that’s what impeachment is for.

You can’t remove a president with impeachment, that’s what elections are for.

The president is trying to overturn the election? OK, but you can’t charge or impeach him for that.

Rinse, repeat.

Professor Sherlock Turley, einer der herausragenden Experten auf dem Gebiet der absoluten Unverfänglichkeit des amerikanisch-ukrainischen Fernmeldewesens, steht vor einem Mysterium:

'Telling Raffensperger to "find" the votes on the Saturday before the certification is breathtaking. https://washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-raffensperger-call-georgia-vote/2021/01/03/d4... I am as mystified by the request as I am the logic. Such an opportunistic move to secure the 16 electoral votes would not work to change the outcome.'
