Podesta, Clinton Seek To Steal The Election By Influencing Electoral College
JohnPodesta, Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chairman and the victim of the most famous hack since Jennifer Lawrence, has joined the call from some members of the Electoral College that they be made privy to the secret findings of the intelligence community about Russian interference in the 2016 campaign.
The hope of the electors, led by Christine Pelosi, daughter of the House minority leader, is that the information would cause red-state electors to break from the popular vote in their states.
While conservatives may be cheered to see the sudden swell of support for federalism and republicanism on the left, that’s not really what’s cooking here.
It’s been more than a month since Trump pulled off a stunning upset to win the presidency, but some still refuse to accept what happened.
Even before the electoral uprising gained steam today, Democrats were looking for a Russia-inspired reboot. Since the revelation Friday that the CIA concluded Russia was trying to help Trump and hurt Clinton, “#revote” has been bouncing around the internet.
Trump’s win is hard for many Democrats to accept, especially given the fact that Clinton won the popular vote by about 2.8 million votes, but…come on, people.
No one, not even the strongest Russophobe, has suggested that there was any interference in the election by the Kremlin. While only the most chronic consumers of Putin propaganda would say there was no Russian effort to interfere with the campaign, there is no credible reason to believe that Russia messed with any ballots, rigged any vote totals or anything of the like.
Russia obviously meddled in the campaign. There’s no evidence that Russia interfered with the election.
