On Monday, 10 bipartisan Electors sent an urgent l etter the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. In the letter, the Electors ask him to reveal any investigations taking place regarding the Russian government's involvement in our U.S. elections. By Tuesday there were over 50 Elector signature." Today, there are 54 and growing, including some Republicans.
As of Saturday, The FBI just announced that they agree with CIA findings that cyberattacks by the Russian government were intended to help elect Donald Trump as President of the United States.
And now over 70 Electoral College members across the nation are demanding that U.S. intelligence officials brief Electors on any possible investigations into Russian government connections to Donald Trump BEFORE they vote next Monday.
Last night, the office of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said he still was not planning to brief Electors before they vote Monday - It is worth remembering that Clapper committed high crimes by lying to Congress. "At the tail end of a rare open session of the Senate Intelligence Committee on March 12, 2013, Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., asked National Intelligence Director James Clapper whether intelligence officials collect data on Americans.
Clapper responded "No, sir," and, "Not wittingly."In the following months, a series of news stories fueled by leaks from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden revealed that wasn't the case. Reports showed the government was collecting and storing bulk metadata of American phone records, and had methods for capturing a vast amount of email and Internet data as well."
Short version: Clapper lied to Congress and the American People and now, while admitting Russia intervened for Trump in the election, he is refusing to brief the electors to allow them to make an informed choice.
If his first lie was treason, this new decision is treason on steroids.
Note that small conservative states have 3 1/3 times more votes, per voters, than where most people live. Minority rule = dictatorship. This is the only way tthat losers in the general election can be declared the winner: it is a model of tyranny, designed as such by the slave owning oligarchs who invented the Electoral College.
If Clapper is able to present compelling evidence of the links between Trump and Russia, it will overturn the planned overturn by the Electoral College of the actual results of the recent election, which Trump lost by nearly 3 million. Now he and his supporters, fearing that his coup will be derailed, are saying that accusations of Russian intervention is a lie...but one he invited. The counter-evidence is that Trump asked Russia publicly to intervene and the FBI and CIA now both admit that Russia did intervene to help Trump....but No! Clapper won't brief the Electoral College because.......Trump hasn't been sworn in yet!
Let's begin with Trump's original crime: "
