Our presidential election process was hacked by the Russians, and the whole thing has become a nightmare since the night of November 8th.
Donald Trump and his transition team have refuted all of the evidence gathered by 17 of our US intelligence agencies, all proving that Russian hacking worked to hand Trump the keys to the White House. But everyone on the #Trumptrain says the election was fair and square. Of course, they also say that Trump won in a landslide calling for a public mandate and this is so far from the truth it’s laughable. To date, Trump is now 2.6 million votes behind Hillary Clinton in the popular vote. And that’s no mandate, trust me.
What has Trump and his team been doing to stifle the now-known fact that Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin intervened in the election to earn Trump the win? Well for starters, Trump claims there is no real proof that Russia was involved at all. He claims it could have been anyone; China or some guy eating Cheetos in his New Jersey basement.
Trump surrogates also are out in full force, slamming the CIA and calling the gathered intelligence hogwash.
Republican National Director Sean Spicer underscored that point, speaking with CNN host Michael Smerconish on Saturday.
“What proof does anyone have that they affected the outcome because I’ve heard zero,” said Spicer. “Show me what facts have actually shown that anything undermined that election.”
Yeah, well, Trumpsters can say whatever they want, but members of the US intelligence community aren’t going to lie down and play dead. To the contrary, they’re speaking out loudly, including former CIA operative Robert Baer, who told CNN that if the CIA can prove that Russia interfered with the 2016 election then the US should vote again.
“When a foreign country interferes in your election and the outcome is in doubt in the legitimacy of the government… I don’t know how it works constitutionally, I’m not a lawyer, a Constitutional lawyer, but I’m deeply disturbed the Russians interfered and I would like to see the evidence, “said Baer. “Because if the evidence is there, I don’t see any other way than voting again, as an American citizen.”
In case you hadn’t heard, way back in September 2015 a bipartisan group of Congressmen and women were informed about the threat posed by unprecedented meddling by a foreign power in our election process. And it’s now been revealed that Republicans Sen. Mitch McConnell basically gave Russia the green light by refusing to sign on to protecting election. In fact, McConnell said he’d consider any effort by the White House to challenge the Russians publicly an act of partisan politics.
Now you may ask, why would McConnell refuse to join in a Congressional agreement to secure our election? Because he had something to gain. Trump named McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, as his nominee for transportation secretary. Sound to me like his wife’s deal was already in place, no?
And now we learn that Trump has reportedly selected Exxon Mobile CEO Rex Tillerson as his nominee for Secretary of State, a man with stronger ties to Russia than Kissinger ever had.
More and more truths continue to be revealed, including facts that Trump’s team were holding secret meetings with the Kremlin during the campaign, which also could bode well for an impeachment effort.
Thank gawd President Obama has ordered an investigation into the possibility that Russians in interfered with our presidential election, which he wants that on his desk before he leaves office. And thank gawd a bipartisan group of senators, including Senators McCain, Schumer, and Reed, are putting country over party, issuing a statement on the reports that Russia interfered with the election and calling for an investigation

In writing this, I found something very interesting. Thanks to our Founding Fathers, there ARE actual grounds for the Electoral College to reject Republican president-elect Donald Trump on December 19th.
According to Alexander Hamilton in Federalist 68:
Nothing was more to be desired than that every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption. These most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one querter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union? But the convention have guarded against all danger of this sort, with the most provident and judicious attention. They have not made the appointment of the President to depend on any preexisting bodies of men, who might be tampered with beforehand to prostitute their votes; but they have referred it in the first instance to an immediate act of the people of America, to be exerted in the choice of persons for the temporary and sole purpose of making the appointment. And they have excluded from eligibility to this trust, all those who from situation might be suspected of too great devotion to the President in office.
No senator, representative, or other person holding a place of trust or profit under the United States, can be of the numbers of the electors. Thus without corrupting the body of the people, the immediate agents in the election will at least enter upon the task free from any sinister bias. Their transient existence, and their detached situation, already taken notice of, afford a satisfactory prospect of their continuing so, to the conclusion of it. The business of corruption, when it is to embrace so considerable a number of men, requires time as well as means. Nor would it be found easy suddenly to embark them, dispersed as they would be over thirteen States, in any combinations founded upon motives, which though they could not properly be denominated corrupt, might yet be of a nature to mislead them from their duty.
What Russia and Trump have done endangers the nation’s sovereignty. To protect our nation, the Electoral College should, must reject Donald Trump.
