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

‘Raise the alarm’: Experts warn of ‘sedition’ and ‘coup’ attempt as Michigan GOP leaders fly to DC to meet with Trump

I need someone to explain why this isn’t election tampering. I need someone to explain why the Dems hair isn’t on fire about all of this. “Everything will work out fine” is not a strategy against a desperate, cornered pig who happens to hold Executive power. https://t.co/w0RnBv6yAV

Criminal conspiracy in plain sight. https://t.co/9iSaaPfz6y

They couldn’t make this any more coup like if they tried.

The Four Seasons Total Coup is still an attempted coup! And elected Republicans are silently supportive and elected Democrats are passively opposed. https://t.co/vwFgCuEW3r

Trump: "I always find a way to win."

He only cares about himself, how he can win.

He doesn't care about his supporters, or the country.

"Michigan officials said Wayne County could not revoke its certification of the results, despite efforts by the local Republicans to have Mr Biden’s win overturned.

Tracy Wilmmer, spokesperson for the Michigan secretary of state, said in a statement that once the results have been officially certified, there is no way to abruptly reverse course.

“There is no legal mechanism for them to rescind their vote,” she said, according to the Associated Press. “Their job is done, and the next step in the process is for the Board of State Canvassers to meet and certify.”

That is Wayne County. The state certification happens Monday. Still time for rat f@*ckery.

Michigan by law is required to certify its election results Monday, November 23. President-elect Joe Biden won the state by 3 percentage points and over 150,000 votes. There are no credible reports of fraud and yet Trump has declared himself the winner.

UPDATE: Trump's legal "team" appears to be taking the position that "they won the case" while walking away from it. Because nothing matters anymore. 

BREAKING

The Trump campaign Thursday withdrew a lawsuit against Michigan officials in federal court that sought to stop the state from certifying its election results.

The campaign incorrectly claimed the lawsuit stopped the Wayne County certification.https://t.co/bMi3Yaqlb1

Trump uses power of presidency to try to overturn the election and stay in office

“Trump is using the power of his office to try to reverse the results of the election, orchestrating a far-reaching pressure campaign to persuade Republican officials in MI, GA, and elsewhere to overturn the will of voters in...a subversion of democracy.”

"9/11/21 will mark the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Rudy Guiliani, a national disgrace, should not be invited to participate in any official remembrance. He is engaged in sedition and stupid though this farce may be, we must not forget the autocratic malevolence fueling 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. "

"We have never seen anything like this before,” historian Michael Beschloss said. “This is a president abusing his very great powers to try to stay in office, even though it is obvious to everyone that he has been defeated. That is a prospect that terrified most of the founders.”

--

"These are the words and actions of an attempted coup, according to historians and other experts."

Trump Targets Michigan in His Ploy to Subvert the Election

@PeterAlexander on the president's meeting with Michigan legislative leaders: "A source close to the leaders says they expect the president is going to push them to overturn the results of their election, again, where Joe Biden won by more than 150,000 votes." #MTPDaily

"Trump’s convinced a nation of traumatized worriers he might pull off a coup. But courts have beaten him back, Giuliani’s misfits are flailing, Biden will be inaugurated Jan. 20 and Trump will get the boot — exposed, again, as the bully he’s always been."
