40 Members of Electoral College Signal Need for Trump Investigation


The magic number of electoral college votes it would take to reverse the election of Trump is 37.  However more than that are signaling their interest in investigating Trump before casting their votes.  In fact, forty members of the Electoral College on Tuesday signed a letter demanding an intelligence briefing on Russian interference in the election ahead of their Dec. 19 vote.

Ten electors originally signed the letter when it was published Monday, and 30 more have since added their names.

“We further require a briefing on all investigative findings, as these matters directly impact the core factors in our deliberations of whether Mr. Trump is fit to serve as President of the United States,” the electors reported in their letter.

The Clinton campaign applauded the effort Monday, saying it had repeatedly warned about Russian interference aimed at swaying the election in Trump’s favor.

  1. Will this matter? Somehow the Orange One always gets a pass and I can’t understand why. Is he smart? No. Is he rich? According to no one but him. Does he understand world issues? No, just where to get a loan. Does he have compassion? Certainly not. This guy is nothing more than a slum lord who learned from his father how to collect rents and evict people from substandard housing. Intelligent? No. Educated? No. He is the white privilege example of demand for affirmative action. Can he rile up a racist crowd? Ahhh, there’s his talent. We are so fucked.
