RIGGED ELECTION!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 9, 2020
NEWS: Trump has twice called the GOP speaker of the Pennsylvania House, lobbying for the state legislature to appoint a slate of rival electors.— Alex Wayne (@aawayne) December 8, 2020
The speaker has told the president that won’t happen.

Trump called Governor Kemp to pressure him to persuade the legislature to overturn Biden’s victory in Georgia.— Bishop Talbert Swan (@TalbertSwan) December 5, 2020
And we’re supposed to believe he never tried to bully the president of Ukraine to investigate Biden?
Arizona's Republican House Speaker has refuted Trump's meritless attempts to overturn the election results: "I cannot and will not entertain a suggestion that we violate current law to change the outcome of a certified election." https://t.co/fzNLHa0YbB— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) December 5, 2020
They got caught because we were leading by so much more than they ever thought possible. Late night ballot “dumps” went crazy! https://t.co/gPpVWUUs91— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 8, 2020
BREAKING: Supreme Court denies request to stop certification of Pennsylvania vote, with no noted dissents.— Robert Barnes (@scotusreporter) December 8, 2020
Trump calling state lawmakers and begging them to illegally change election results is something only an un-American traitor would do.— Scott Dworkin (@funder) December 8, 2020
I’m alarmed.— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) December 8, 2020
I’m not alarmed Trump will succeed in overturning the election.
But I’m alarmed about possible violence.
I’m alarmed about damage to our polity and society.
I’m alarmed about the Republican Party failing to stand up for democracy.
I’m alarmed. https://t.co/TdY0EKadWC
Hall of Shame— Ryan Goodman (@rgoodlaw) December 8, 2020
These 60 #Pennsylvania Republican state legislators—including House Speaker @RepBryanCutler—signed a letter asking #PA Congressional reps to reject the state’s electoral slate on Jan. 6.
In other words: to break the law and disenfranchise their own citizens. pic.twitter.com/6GkDoC2s0j
Ted Cruz calls on Justices to look at overturning the election and proceeds to talk about them worrying about credibility.— NEWSNOTES💙 (@ReportsDaNews) December 8, 2020

#CoupUpdate #Michigan danger signs— Ryan Goodman (@rgoodlaw) November 22, 2020
House Speaker Chatfield who met with Trump says:
- they gave Trump an "update"
- RNC request is to "simply delay" certification
- cites Wayne County imbalances (fact check: involves only 357 out of 1/4 million votes)https://t.co/onpV2QRcDH
If you take a step back and realize that Trump’s head attorney leading this overthrow of the election worked with Russian intelligence this year and two of the other attorneys were on the payroll of a senior Russian mafia associate, all of this becomes much simpler to understand.— Scott Stedman (@ScottMStedman) November 20, 2020
It. This is America’s first coup. The failure to denounce this madness by GOP leaders will poison our politics and democracy for a very long time. What a disgrace. @ProjectLincoln— Steve Schmidt (@SteveSchmidtSES) November 20, 2020
The President of the United States may be about to commit an act of sedition—his meeting with Michigan legislators is, at a minimum, right on the doorstep of it—and some responsible Republican in Washington better step up quickly to stop the meeting before we enter a full crisis.— Seth Abramson (@SethAbramson) November 20, 2020
It is quite a thing to watch @RudyGiuliani come into alignment with the strategic goals of Osama Bin Laden. OBL declared war on America and was killed by the US Navy. Guiliani has declared war on America. His coup rolls on. What a disgrace.— Steve Schmidt (@SteveSchmidtSES) November 20, 2020
Trump and the GOP's seditious plan to steal Michigan
This is really nuts. He is actually, actively attempting a coup. Stuart Stevens called it sedition the other night and I'm inclined to agree. https://t.co/OhYhz20aqN— Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) November 19, 2020
I've seen enough. This is a genuine coup attempt now. We should absolutely use that language and it should appear in coup datasets, etc. We're much closer to a full democratic breakdown than a lot of people realize. /1 https://t.co/L1TTF1rx6q— Michael K. Miller (@mkmdem) November 19, 2020
Trump, Giuliani, Assange, GRU, Russia. This is a full out assault against American sovereignty. It’s war.— Andrew C Laufer, Esq (@lauferlaw) November 19, 2020
GOP wants to throw out all black votes to make Trump win the election.
While we are at it, let us take out the votes of the mentally deranged MAGA, racist MAGA, unpatriotic MAGA who don't believe in democracy, then Biden wins 60 Million to 0 votes. He wins all 50 states in a landslide.
When Wayne County initially failed to certify, a Twitter user noted Trump would lead without its votes counted.— Aaron Blake (@AaronBlake) November 19, 2020
Trump responded: "Flip Michigan back to TRUMP."
Giuliani today: "It changes the result of the election in Michigan if you take out Wayne County."
It's not subtle.
The Republican Party does not want people who voted against them to have their votes count. This is an argument for ending democracy because they lost the election, plain and simple. https://t.co/NmJSVLPihh— Chris Geidner (@chrisgeidner) November 19, 2020

Wisconsin (Racist efforts to disenfranchise the black voters in Milwaukee & Dane county by vile racists)
NEWS: Trump campaign says it's filing to recount Milwaukee & Dane Counties. But as Trump said in 2016, “The people have spoken and the election is over.” Wisconsinites chose Biden. The history of recounts suggests the win is insurmountable. Trump is kicking up dust. We’re ready.— Ben Wikler (@benwikler) November 18, 2020
Truly terrifying last hour for democracy:— Ari Berman (@AriBerman) November 18, 2020
-Trump fires top DHS official for refuting bogus fraud claims
-Wayne County MI GOP canvassers refuse to certify results, say Black votes shouldn't count
-Trump lawyer says state legislatures should illegally nullify will of voters
Let’s speak frankly about the Republican position in the wake of this election: It is that the votes of black people are presumptively not legal votes.— Benjamin Wittes (@benjaminwittes) November 18, 2020
It really is that simple.
Actually, Trump and his Republican cronies tried to disenfranchise the African American voters of Detroit in order to steal Michigan. It was one of the most brazen acts of white supremacy that the whole world watched in horror.— Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) November 18, 2020
Michigan (Racist efforts to disenfranchise the black voters in Detroit by vile racists Monica Palmer and William Hartman)
The Republican chair of the board, Monica Palmer, literally just said she would be open to certifying the vote in "communities other than Detroit" https://t.co/YQqRmIABOI— Nancy Kaffer (@nancykaffer) November 17, 2020
It’s plain and simple, folks. The Republican members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers put politics above their duty to our residents. Suggesting that all of Wayne County can be certified, EXCEPT for Detroit, is horrifying racist and a subversion of our democracy.— Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) November 17, 2020
Whitmer stmt: “Today’s action is a blatant attempt to undermine the will of the voters. The process, however, will move forward. Under MI law, the Board of State of Canvassers will now finish the job and I have every expectation they will certify the results when the job is done”— Josh Kraushaar (@HotlineJosh) November 18, 2020
Why is Lindsey Graham, a Senator from South Carolina, sticking his neck out to push the Georgia Secretary of State to exclude the ballots of legal voters?— Renato Mariotti (@renato_mariotti) November 17, 2020
He just won re-election, so this is no longer about self-preservation. https://t.co/ELO2OgXLgK
SCOOP: Ga. SoS Raffensperger says Sen. Lindsey Graham pressured him to toss legal ballots. https://t.co/aZF4ywYAHU— Amy Gardner (@AmyEGardner) November 16, 2020
The Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee wanted legally cast ballots thrown out, according to the Georgia Secretary of State.— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) November 16, 2020
Trump's Nevada electors, including the chair of the Nevada Republican Party, are suing to either have Trump declared the winner of Nevada or to have the presidential election in the state annulled entirely.— Ben Jacobs (@Bencjacobs) November 17, 2020
Nevada Sec of State says they never spoke to Lindsey Graham. Which means Graham lied.— Scott Dworkin (@funder) November 17, 2020
So this just happened.— Ryan Goodman (@rgoodlaw) November 17, 2020
Sen. Lindsey Graham tells reporters he's also spoken to Secretary of State of Arizona (and Nevada). To normalize the idea of these communications?
Secretary of State of Arizona immediately responds that Graham's statement is false.👇 https://t.co/widIyZYJFP
If desperate Lindsey Graham was willing to pressure officials in Nevada, Arizona and Georgia to throw out legal ballots, do you not think he would do the same for himself in South Carolina? Recount!— MeidasTouch.com (@MeidasTouch) November 17, 2020
Trump's firing of Director Christopher Krebs (because he displeased Trump by saying that there was no democratic voter fraud)
“By firing the government’s top election security official by tweet last night, President Trump showed he’s ready to remove any internal check on his baseless claims about election fraud.” https://t.co/5j9YwAE4iY— Rachel Maddow MSNBC (@maddow) November 18, 2020
Chris Krebs is a Trump appointee. There was no reason for Krebs to lie when he concluded the elections were secure and fair. @realDonaldTrump fired Krebs for telling the truth. @POTUS can keep firing people, but he can’t change the fact that he lost the presidential election. https://t.co/GA3x8d3UB4— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) November 18, 2020
Breaking News: President Trump fired the top official responsible for securing the election, who had disputed his baseless declarations of fraud. https://t.co/rpu22pB54q— The New York Times (@nytimes) November 18, 2020
Sen. Klobuchar: "Trump's firing of Christopher Krebs is a gut punch to our democracy. Dir. Krebs has been praised by both Republicans and Democrats at the state and national level ... We need more people like Dir. Krebs working in government, and it is wrong that he was fired."— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) November 18, 2020
