A letter @POTUS just received from 4000 lawyers:



December 13, 2016

Dear Leaders:

We are a group of attorneys throughout the United States. Like our elected officials, each of us has taken an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. We are deeply concerned that recent revelations regarding the 2016 election could undermine confidence in the outcome of the 2016 election.

The public has recently learned that a bipartisan group of United States elected officials was provided a briefing by U.S. intelligence agencies in September. This briefing contained credible evidence that Russia was not only carrying out a campaign of disinformation against United States citizens, but was in the opinion of U.S. intelligence agencies, likely doing so with the goal of ensuring a specific outcome in the U.S. election. Despite this red flag, this bipartisan group chose not to alert the public or to issue a bipartisan statement urging state and local officials to take federal help in protecting their voting-registration and balloting machines from Russian cyber-intrusions. There is therefore now a question as to whether such interference did occur, which in combination with the Russian disinformation campaign and likely hacking of political parties' emails, threatens to delegitimize the results of the 2016 election.

Like the bipartisan group of Senators (Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), and Jack Reed (D-R.I.)) who issued a statement on Sunday, December 11, we believe that potential Russian interference in the election should alarm every American and that Congress must investigate further without allowing it to become a partisan issue.

We further believe that this series of events represents an unprecedented threat to the United States and to the integrity of the 2016 election. Therefore, we need to allow for a thorough and proper investigation of these issues, and to ensure the integrity of the remaining steps of our election process as well as future elections.

The Constitution provides for a safeguard to help us to ensure that no one can take the office of President if there is reason to believe that the election was compromised by outside forces: the Electoral College. Like a growing bipartisan group of Electors who have called for an intelligence report to be provided to them prior to their vote, we believe it is necessary for the members of the Electoral College to have as much information as possible about the nature of the possible intrusions into the United States' democratic process by the Russian government prior to voting, so that they may make an informed decision as to who should become our next President.

We therefore request the following actions be taken immediately:

1) As much information as possible regarding the potential Russian interference with our election must be declassified with sufficient time for the Electors to receive it prior to December 19 so that the Electors may have sufficient information to make an informed decision prior to voting.

2) The Electors must receive an intelligence report detailing what senior intelligence officials know and suspect at this time, prior to voting. This information should include a briefing by the Director of National Intelligence.

3) If it is not possible to declassify this information in time, the date of the Electoral College vote must be delayed until such time as it is possible to provide the Electors with sufficient information for them to make an informed decision prior to voting.

Furthermore, we support a Congressional bipartisan commission to investigate the actions, intent, and results of the likely Russian interference with the 2016 election; and to determine the vulnerabilities in our system that allowed these possible intrusions to occur. This commission must recommend steps to prevent such an intrusion from occurring in the future.

This is not a partisan issue. This may be a fundamental threat to our democracy from a foreign nation with a real effect on the outcome of this election, the extent of which is not yet known. As Americans who are loyal first and foremost to our Constitutional democracy, we must work together to overcome any such threat.

Trump's conflicts of interest: a visual guide


I will be leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country in order to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Donald Trump tweeted on Wednesday. The early morning announcement, which provided no further details but promised a press conference on 15 December, followed weeks of bad press over conflicts of interest posed by the Trump Organization’s international real estate dealings.

“While I am not mandated to do this under the law,” Trump wrote, “I feel it is visually important, as president, to in no way have a conflict of interest with my various businesses.”

So far, the visuals haven’t been good for the president-elect. Photos showing his daughter Ivanka Trump – who is slated to take over the family business – sitting in on meetings with foreign leaders raised new concerns over the failure to separate the Trump family brand from the presidency. Days later, a series of Facebook photos showed a meeting between the president-elect and Indian real estate partners, adding fuel to the fire.

Closer to home, the business interests of the Trump Organization will cross paths with the US government on multiple fronts, providing ample opportunity for further conflicts.

Russian Interference Could Give Courts Legal Authority To Install Clinton

Russian Interference Could Give Courts Legal Authority To Install Clinton


A 1995 federal court ruling out of Pennsylvania may offer some clues to Clinton supporters as to possible legal authority for removing an elected official from office and replacing them with their erstwhile opponent.

In light of late-breaking reports Friday evening that Russians interfered with the 2016 presidential election to assist Donald Trump’s victory, Clinton supporters are furiously in pursuit of remedies.

At 10:45 p.m. Friday evening, the Washington Post broke an explosive story alleging that Russians had interfered with the 2016 presidential election in order to assist Donald Trump in a victory over democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. The story reveals that a CIA assessment detailing this conclusion had been presented to President Obama and top congressional leaders last week.

The development has Clinton supporters and other concerned Americans confused and hot in pursuit of potential remedies. No clear constitutional remedy exists to halt the certification of the outcome. Article II of the U.S. Constitution vests Congress with the power to determine the date by which the Electoral College will cast their votes, presently set for December 19. In recent weeks, a massive online movement asking members of the Electoral College to become “faithless” or “conscientious” electors and to vote for Clinton instead of Trump has garnered national attention.

The electors would be well within their constitutional authority to do so, say groups like Hamilton’s Electors, which claims that the purpose of the Electoral College is to prevent demagogues like Mr. Trump from assuming the nation’s highest office. A petition urging the Electoral College to make Hillary Clinton president has gained nearly 5 million signatures.

Some social media users have begun circulating the phone numbers of various state attorneys general, urging fellow citizens to contact them and request that the Electoral College voters be enjoined from casting their vote until such time that all formal investigations in Russian hacking conclude. Once the electors cast their votes on December 19, they fear, any constitutional means for preventing Trump’s road to the White House will be exhausted.

However, at least one court decision suggests there is some federal authority to invalidate the election outcome after the fact.
