Attempted Coup Against Trump Continues

Politics / US Politics Jan 05, 2017 - 10:01 PM GMT

Politics

Pro-Hillary, anti-Trump coup plotters keep throwing endless amounts of dirt against the wall, hoping something sticks to oust him or undermines his presidency if removal efforts fail.

Various attempts so far fizzled, a final hurdle to cross on January 6 when Congress convenes a joint session to certify November’s presidential election results and make Trump’s ascension to power official, together with Vice President-elect Mike Pence.



Friday is the last date for filing objections, ahead of the congressional vote, the procedure as follows, according to the Congressional Research Service:

Objecting to the Counting of One or More Electoral Votes. 3 U.S.C. § 15 includes a procedure for making and acting on objections to the counting of one or more of the electoral votes from a state or the District of Columbia.” 

“When the certificate or equivalent paper from each state (or the District of Columbia) is read, ‘the President of the Senate shall call for objections, if any.’ “ 

“Any such objection must be presented in writing and must be signed by at least one Senator and one Representative. The objection ‘shall state clearly and concisely, and without argument, the ground thereof…’ When an objection is received, each house is to meet and consider it separately.” 

“The statute states that ’(n)o votes or papers from any other State shall be acted upon until the objections previously made to the votes or papers from any State shall have been finally disposed of.”

Procedures for Considering Objections. 3 U.S.C. § 17 lays out procedures for each house to follow in debating and voting on an objection. (As these procedures affect either house, however, they presumably are rule-making provisions of law which that house can decide unilaterally to alter.)” 

“These procedures limit debate on the objection to not more than two hours, during which each member may speak only once and for not more than five minutes.” 

“Then ‘it shall be the duty of the presiding officer of each House to put the main question without further debate.”

Disposing of Objections. The joint session does not act on any objections that are made. Instead, the joint session is suspended while each house meets separately to debate the objection and vote whether, based on the objection, to count the vote or votes in question.” 

“Both houses must vote separately to agree to the objection. (This is the form in which the question was put in 1969; Deschler's Precedents, v. 3, Ch. 10, § 3.6.) Otherwise, the objection falls and the vote or votes are counted.”

Objections can be whatever pro-Hillary dark forces decide - nonexistent Russian election hacking the most obvious.

Another is a new Electoral Vote Objection report, claiming over 50 GOP electors were ineligible on grounds of allegedly not residing in congressional districts they represented, or held elective office in states barring dual officeholders.

The 1,000-page report was prepared by a nationwide legal team for congressional members, allegedly bipartisan, clearly pro-Hillary, anti-Trump - presented to Congress at the 11th hour, attempting to show Trump was elected illegitimately.

Can it work? Hardly likely. Even if all congressional members digested its lengthy contents in record time ahead of Friday’s certification, at this stage, reversing November’s result appears impossible short of an act of God, and there’s no indication it’s coming.

The point is anti-Trump dark forces won’t quit no matter how often their efforts fail. They’ll keep hounding him, including on inauguration day and after he’s in office serving.

While there’s no way to know for sure, his presidency may be the most troubled since Nixon’s - possibly with a similar or worse bad ending.
