8. Wouldn't You If You Were Evil and Were Concerned About Being Held Accountable?

You have seen police chases on TV where a suspect drives over a hundred miles an trying to escape the law, because they know with a certainty that they would be held accountable if caught?

What does Trump have to lose at this point? With a Biden presidency, suddenly all of his illegal activities would be examined. They is a real chance that he and his associates might go to jail given how so many of his other associates have been convicted.

Why shouldn't Trump try to explore ways to negate any election result? Conversely, a lot of Republicans are in too deep. For example, can Nunes suddenly back away from Trump? No.

Think of the criminal trying to evade cops. Why should we expect Trump to act any different in an effort to avoid being held accountable.

This is why we cannot just stop at the Presidency. We also need to win as many Senate seats as possible to prevent Republicans from even considering the possibility of supporting a Trump coup.
