    Kavanaugh embraced a legal theory that could let Republican-controlled state legislatures override results certified by Democratic officials. That argument, developed by three conservative justices in the 2000 Bush v. Gore case, says the Supreme Court should intervene in a presidential election dispute even when a state court is interpreting its own laws.

    Citing that opinion, Kavanaugh pointed to a constitutional provision that says state legislatures get to determine how electors are appointed to the Electoral College, the body that formally selects the U.S. president.

    “The text of the Constitution requires federal courts to ensure that state courts do not rewrite state election laws,” Kavanaugh wrote. He was one of three current justices, including Roberts and Barrett, who worked as lawyers for Republican George W. Bush in the 2000 election fight.

    Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Michigan all have Republican-controlled legislatures and Democratic governors, creating the possibility those states could send dueling slates of electors to the Electoral College in the event of a disputed election.


    Straight up point blank. Kavanaugh clearly says federal courts can and WILL override state courts and state law and permit state legislators to send the GOP set of electors regardless of the count.
    You Trumpsters are getting desperate.

    What about the GA runoffs? A new thread will be open for it?

    As a suggestion and in no way a criticism; I know full well why threads like these gotta get shut down. But could you perhaps hold off until the final numbers are confirmed? That could take a couple weeks, especially with likely recounts. Any discussion of those recounts is still gonna be election discussion, and if you shut this thread down, someone's just gonna start another one.

    Once those final recounts are complete and the numbers confirmed, though, yeah, totally makes sense to shut 'er down.

    Trump was my President, which gave me every right to take him to task for every stupid thing he said, tweeted or claimed.

    There's got to be a slightly bigger crime for a President refusing to leave office than Trespassing.

    Like Treason.

    Yeah, that's why it seems counter productive to me, better to let this linger slightly too long than lock it too soon.

    I don't even have anything to say. I wish I did but I don't.

    Congrats, I guess.

    just hope they don't get away with another "Great Retcon" like after Iran-Contra, and Iraq

    from my understanding, treason requires aiding some enemy

    it might be insurrection, but Im not a lawyer, nor am I willing to play one online

    Been celebrating since it was announced, just wanted to come back and say that this thread has actually been great. Very informative and good discussion, thanks to the math nerds who have been scraping data and keeping counts!

    Also, the absolute horrible look of Trump golfing while he loses an election in the midst of a pandemic and civil unrest. I know he's probably just strategizing with lawyers, but it looks really fucking out of touch.

    I don't care. You're factually wrong (unless you're not American). And after 4 years of Trump, I am ever so tired of people who think their beliefs trump facts.

    can't treason much if people simply stop giving you the nuke codes etc, at that point he's just a civilian with a big mouth. would be very very amusing it it got that far though.

    i guess the most realistic thing to happen perhaps would be his biometrics to open some door or w/e not working anymore and the press catching that on camera.

    What an outrageous year.
    Covid, tons of celebrities dead and now Trump lost the election.
    Biden is so old they will have to harvest even more blood from the kids.
    RIP children in the US.
