Infighting and an attempted 'coup': Trump team erupts into chaos as Giuliani takes over legal effort

Source: ABC News

As President Donald Trump’s legal efforts challenging the election results continue to hit dead ends, his campaign and legal teams have descended into chaos behind the scenes as many brace for the end of the post-election fight, multiple sources tell ABC News.

Since launching a long-shot effort to overturn the election results through baseless claims of voter fraud, President Trump has suffered a dizzying barrage of court losses and setbacks around the country, leading him to late last week to install Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer, to lead the legal efforts going forward.

(snip)

Over the weekend, Giuliani and his own team of lawyers, which also includes Trump campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis, attempted what was described to ABC News as an internal campaign "coup"— an attempt to wrestle power away from the current longstanding Trump campaign leadership by claiming the president had given them full control moving forward, multiple sources said.

The attempted power grab hit a boiling point on Saturday when Miller, who’s been the campaign's chief strategist for months, and Ellis got into what sources said was as a "screaming match" in front of other staffers. They both threatened to call the president to settle who he wanted to be in charge, sources said. At one point, Miller berated Ellis and called her “crazy,” multiple sources said.

5. Forget legal battles, forget the White House infighting, here is the kind of madness,

that is being discussed on a large conservative forum near you. This is a part of a conversation among the "patriots."

The Oath Keepers is the largest single militia in the nation. It is comprised of mostly of retired LE ex military and active LE. Not alot of fringe wanna be commandos. But heavily armed men and women trained and who have " been there:

They have declared, truthfully this election process this cycle as fraudulent and non binding. And vowed to resist and ignore the possibly incoming thief in chiefs every official effort.

May be time to have to pick that side soon. Liberty, rule of law. Or fraud , socialism and becoming a third world dictatorship.

This ISNT a political post. It simply recognizing that the SHTF event discussed constantly here may well be here.
