Podesta: The bipartisan electors’ letter raises very grave issues involving our national security.
In making such a sweeping move, the judge, Clarence C.It has been said that nothing happens by accident in politics, and it is certainly no accident that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, members of the U. Senate and the mainstream media are all suddenly buzzing about “Russian hacking” and “Russian interference” in our elections.Over the past 48 hours, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and just about every other major news source in America has been breathlessly telling us that the CIA has concluded that the Russians “intervened” in the presidential election with the specific goal of helping Donald Trump win.This fact hasn’t stopped some from making reckless charges about the legitimacy of Trump’s win. Yet John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, is now backing a request by 538 partisan Electoral College members — including the daughter of the minority leader of the House and a bunch of other people who know nothing about hacking or intelligence — to review CIA briefings to determine if Trump should be president. Clinton lost three states — Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania — by less than a percentage point, and Florida by only slightly more,” Paul Krugman recently wrote.Obama Obama calls for re-vote Obama signs Executive Order for recount Obama signs Executive Order for revote Paul Hornerrevote investigation Snopes wife transgender WASHINGTON, D. (AP) — Following the results of Tuesday night’s election, President Obama has signed Executive Order 13805, which orders a full recount of all votes cast in the election and calls for a special election to be held on December 19.Obama signed the order in response to the concerns of thousands of voters across the country who said that they were prevented from casting a ballot on election day, too many absentee ballots have not been found or counted, equipment failures, as well as concerns that some members of the electoral college may have acted unethically.For those that have been wondering if the establishment was going to attempt to steal the presidency away from Donald Trump before he can be inaugurated, we now appear to have our answer.13805Donald Trump Electoral College EOEO 13805Executive Order Executive Order 13805Executive Order of election results Hillary Clintoninvestigation of election results Is the owner of Snopes wife transgender?We now know that the CIA has determined Russia’s interference in our elections was for the purpose of electing Donald Trump. The idea that the founder of The Center for American Progress feels a solemn responsibility to the Constitution is risible, at best. The Electoral College — the integral function of stable American governance that most Democrats want to trash — was devised to ensure “that the office of President will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.” I’m far less horrified by the idea of overruling the electorate than most Americans are, if there’s a good reason for it. It is not, as far as I can tell, however, the job of those electors to sift through intelligence reports they don’t understand to determine what foreign powers are up to.It’s not their job to get security clearances to make decisions on information that the rest of the electorate can’t see.
