Former President Donald Trump could be facing his third criminal indictment of the year, which would be unprecedented for any president or former president.
Trump has been informed that he is a target of the Justice Department’s investigation into the January 6 insurrection and efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. He has been invited to appear before a federal grand jury in Washington, DC. Here’s what we know about Trump’s efforts to circumvent the Electoral College and his public and behind-the-scenes actions.
1. Trump’s Attempt to Erase Election Loss: Trump’s plan to erase his election loss and how he planned to do it has been well-documented. CNN has been reporting on this, along with the House select committee that investigated January 6. There are strong indications that the case against Trump could revolve around his efforts to circumvent the Electoral College.
2. The Electoral College Process: Americans technically vote for electors when they vote for presidential candidates in early November. The electors for the popular-vote winner in each state meet in mid-December to cast electoral votes. These votes are then counted in Congress, and the new president is sworn in on January 20.
3. Trump’s Public Statements: Trump made public statements suggesting a plan for states to make him president if Vice President Mike Pence rejected the real Electoral College votes. However, much of what Trump claimed was untrue, as no state legislature passed measures to “correct” their votes, and there were no widespread irregularities or fraud.
4. Pressuring Local Officials: Behind the scenes, Trump was pressuring Republican officials in key states to overturn the election results. This adds to the evidence against him in the ongoing investigation.
It remains to be seen what specific allegations will be made against Trump or his associates, but the evidence suggests a significant case against him. The fact that a former president could face three criminal indictments is unprecedented and raises questions about the extent of his involvement in the events of January 6.Compelling Title: Unveiling Trump’s Shocking Election Scheme: Weaponizing the Justice Department and Fake Electors
Subtitle: Inside the Oval Office Meeting and Key Players Revealed
Former President Donald Trump’s relentless efforts to overturn the 2020 election have come to light, exposing a shocking scheme that involved weaponizing the Justice Department and orchestrating a plan with fake electors. Let’s delve into the details of this unprecedented plot.
1. Weaponizing the Justice Department:
Trump repeatedly attempted to enlist senior Justice Department officials and federal prosecutors to help him overturn the election. He pressured them to publicly declare the election as “corrupt” and intervene in key states to disrupt the certification process.
2. Wild Plans to Intervene:
In a December 18, 2020, Oval Office meeting, Trump advisers clashed over outrageous ideas to seize voting machines and deploy the military on US streets. These plans were ultimately rejected but shed light on the extent of Trump’s desperation.
3. The Fake Electors Scheme:
Led by Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s campaign advisers coordinated false electors in seven crucial states. These fake GOP electors held shadow certification ceremonies, signing illegitimate certifications claiming Trump’s victory in those states.
4. They Didn’t Hide It:
Trump adviser Stephen Miller openly announced on Fox News that an alternate slate of electors would vote and send the results to Congress. This move aimed to keep Trump’s options open in case lawsuits in those states succeeded.
5. Key Players and Testimonies:
CNN’s Casey Gannon and Hannah Rabinowitz have compiled a log of key players who testified before the grand jury or met with prosecutors. Many were questioned about the fake electors plot, including top aides to Vice President Mike Pence, who ultimately rejected Trump’s fake electors.
6. Recent Grand Jury Witnesses:
Michael McDonald, chairman of the Nevada Republican Party, and Gary Michael Brown, a 2020 Trump campaign official, were recent grand jury witnesses. McDonald was given limited immunity to testify, while Brown refused to cooperate with the House January 6 committee.
7. Prosecutors’ Hardball Tactics:
Prosecutors have been playing hardball with witnesses, refusing to grant extensions for grand jury subpoenas and demanding compliance. In cases where witnesses were granted immunity, the special counsel’s office was prepared to compel their testimony after they indicated they would invoke the Fifth Amendment.
8. Michigan Fake Electors Charged:
The slate of 16 fake electors in Michigan has been charged with multiple felonies related to the scheme, as announced by the state attorney general.
The unraveling of Trump’s election scheme exposes a disturbing abuse of power and a blatant disregard for the democratic process. As investigations continue, the full extent of this unprecedented plot is gradually being revealed.
