www.theguardian.comFrom ‘voter fraud’ to Albanese’s ‘invalid’ swearing in: election claims debunked
Baseless claims are circulating about the federal election, including from current and former elected representatives. But the AEC says almost no one is listening to ‘this stuff’
A few months back, I recalled Chuck Grassley's comments on January 5, where he said Pence wasn't expected to be there to certify the vote so he'd probably be stepping in to do it. Then he recanted, saying he didn't mean anything by that.
Well! New news out: It was part of a concrete plan. According to a newly released memo from the January 6th committee (from Heather Cox Richardson's column today):
"The memo is a several-page document from Kenneth Chesebro to Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, then sent to Eastman, outlining precisely how then–vice president Mike Pence could refuse to count the electors for Democrat Joe Biden. ... Chesebro hammered hard on the idea that the Constitution gave the vice president alone the authority to determine the outcome of a presidential election. This, he wrote, was the 'strict textual, originalist basis' rather than the rules set out in the Electoral Count Act.
"His plan was for Pence to refuse to preside over the counting of electors, as specified in the ECA, and instead to have Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) or another Republican in the chair. That officer would refuse to count the ballots where there were two slates, thus insulating Trump and Pence from the election steal."
"Several candidates and some online groups connected to the anti-lockdown or anti-vaccine mandate movements have raised claims that the election results were fraudulent..."
Always the same fuckwits.
Actually I see it as a page out of Hitler’s playbook. They are trying to create the fifth reich. Wait for them to write “Mein Trumpf”
Yep, flood the zone with crap...then use the ensuing chaos to consolidate power. 💩💩💩Sounds like your people got out in front of it though (something we still haven't managed.) Hope that's the worst of it for you guys!
