From one perspective, this was a massive victory. From another, it was closer than 2016: Shifting 45,000 votes in AZ, GA, and WIS wd’ve led to an EC vote of 269-269 and a House election choosing Trump because each State gets just 1 vote. Lesson: The Electoral College must go.
This is something we must look out for as the Trumps and their loyal enablers exit the White House. The mountain of incriminating information that'll fuel civil and criminal lawsuits for a generation must resemble Mt. Everest. Trump will try to burn or shred what he can't steal. https://t.co/OaMuq2oS8l
Listen to @MaryLTrump. The fact that Trump’s attempt to steal the election is doomed to fail mustn’t obscure how much he can wreck on his way out the door. With the power of the presidency in his hands, he can do inestimable illegal damage. But prosecution awaits the criminals. https://t.co/qYA5WFZYxz
With a wider vote margin than JFK’s or Reagan’s, a decisive Electoral College win in purple (MI, PA, WISC) along with red (AZ, GA) states from the NE to the SW, defeating a ruthless opponent who held all the keys of power, @JoeBiden has a mandate to restore decency to governing.
18 USC § 592 makes it a federal crime punishable by 5 yrs in prison to put armed agents “at any place where an ELECTION is held”— so sneaky AG Bill Barr treats that as permission to send armed troops to intimidate folks AT THOSE PLACES while ballots are still being COUNTED!
.@ADL: “2 yrs ago on this day, a heavily armed white supremacist entered the Tree of Life synagogue building in Pittsburgh and began the deadliest antisemitic attack in U.S. history. It took the killer less than 11 minutes to take 11 lives.” Biden will win sensible gun control.
