Well, adding up the numbers, Donald Trump would have needed more than just 11,780 votes from Georgia to overturn the election.
So, did Trump also telephone other states? Did he try to coerce other states to find additional votes? Maybe check in the sofas for any lost votes? Or glue together shredded votes to verify signatures?
The oops factor: “It’s okay if you announce that you made a mistake and found more votes,” said Trump.
The threat: “But it could be criminal if your count isn’t correct…” Trump added.
Trump’s telephone call to Georgia was based on: “…lots and lots of rumors that I’m hearing from people that are telling me things.”
So much for the expertise of the FBI and CIA.
Rumors? Lots and lots of rumors? And did other states fail to have the foresight to record his telephone calls?
The person Trump should have telephoned for additional votes was Vladimir Putin. Easy peasy! Putin could have run up thousands of Trump voters in a flash.
But it was Christopher Krebs to the rescue of Democracy. Krebs, the former director of Homeland Cyber Security, announced that his agency kept hackers out. Adding, the 2020 election was free of foreign interference.
Former, because sore loser Trump fired Krebs. And Trump is making telephone calls to States, begging for additional votes.
That won’t get Trump the Nobel Peace Prize. Maybe a Censure Resolution by the House of Representatives and criminal prosecution for attempting to overturn a certified election.
But not four more years in the White House.
