Skip to comments.Rudy Giuliani: 3 State Legislatures May Change Electoral College Voters
Posted on 12/06/2020 6:10:31 PM PST by SeekAndFind
President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that the legislatures in Arizona, Georgia, and Michigan might end up deciding what electors are sent to the Electoral College, suggesting it could end up in the U.S. Supreme Court.
Giuliani said that the GOP-controlled legislatures in the three states could vote on sending their own slate of electors, noting that such a move is supported in the U.S. Constitution. Both Giuliani and fellow Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis have lobbied state legislatures in recent days to reaffirm their power to choose their own electors due to evidence of fraud during the Nov. 3 election.
The former New York mayor told Fox Business on Sunday that Georgia lawmakers “started a petition to hold their own session, which they’re allowed to do under the Constitution,” adding the GOP members are “disgusted” by the evidence that was shown during a hearing last week.
On the program, Giuliani made reference to the State Farm Arena surveillance video in Atlanta that showed election officials pulling black containers on wheels from underneath a table after poll observers and election workers were sent home. While state elections officials have said the process was not unusual, they have not yet answered key questions raised by Trump’s team when presenting the video.
“They’re the first legislature to do this now,” he said of Georgia. “This is a constitutional role that the founding fathers gave to our legislatures. They’re the ones who are supposed to select the president, not the governors, not the board of elections. They’re the ones who have the constitutional obligation to decide on the electors.”
“Michigan is considering the same thing,” Giuliani said. “They’re not quite as far along, but they are drafting something right now, and so is Arizona, so those three … could very well end up in front of the legislature to decide who the electors are.”
In the interview, Giuliani said that should even one “of these state legislatures change the electors based on their own analysis, of course that’ll be taken to the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court will have to decide if it was done reasonably, rationally, or arbitrarily—that’s the standard.”
“In each case, each one of these legislatures has more than enough of that to sustain the Supreme Court challenge,” Giuliani added.
Pennsylvania state lawmakers last week sent a letter to the Pennsylvania Congress members to object to the state’s Electoral College vote during the Joint Session of Congress on Jan. 6, 2021, claiming that the state legislature does not have the power to choose electors in Pennsylvania.
Get well soon, Mr. Mayor!
Hoping for the best...
If not, stay ready and calm Patriots.
> If not, stay ready and calm Patriots.
I’m easily excitable. But my current plan is to move to a rural location (already bought the land a little while back) and keep to myself if Biden is installed.
That is, if the commies will let me keep to myself.
If I had to guess, I’d say that the sitting President who was cheated out of a deserved win in a presidential election probably doesn’t have “standing” to bring a suit alleging election fraud.
I’ve thought of the same approach, even to leave the country to my birth land. But, there is no escaping the Deep State. If they take the USA, not only is this country finished, so is the world. There is no next time...
It’s rather frightening to see how easily the Deep State operated this year in manipulating covid, and then stealing the election so blatantly. So far, not a finger has been lifted to stop it save a couple of elderly men and women wagging their fingers talking about lawsuits.
Is this really America?
The movement for Trump will go far beyond the state legislatures in Georgia, Michigan and Pennsylvania but will also include Electors in alleged Biden states switching their votes for Trump.
This may be of some degree of comfort: Who is more powerful? God Almighty, or the Deep State? Who made it possible for victory to be snatched out of the withered claws of Cankles in 2016, and given to Donald John Trump, our American Lion? Yep, you guessed it. :-)
So the question is.....I guess a question for the calvinists..... is if Biden is sworn in instead of Trump..... will we say it is God’s will because it is all predestined?
IF Arizona, Georgia, and Michigan were to flip, the Electoral College would stand at 269 votes for each candidate. Popcorn will become more scarce than toliet paper.
Just get on with it!
Um no that will never happen
Given that situation 269/269 I would not be confident congress would re-elect President Trump.
“That is, if the commies will let me keep to myself.”
They won’t. They never do. They never have.
Why would you be hiding while the rest of us fight?
I’d rather bleed out on the Capitol steps than allow my country’s future to be stolen.
If I understand the process correctly, a tie in the electoral college means that the election is thrown to the House, where each state legislature gets one vote...is that correct?
Republican legislatures far outnumber Dem legislatures.
Trump would win.
Does ANYTHING occur which God has not permitted?
Anyone know what is going on with WISCONSIN? That seemed like a likely flip.
You’re correct about the procedure, but the states are 26R-24D, not an automatic Trump win. Imagine the threats, intimidation, and horsetrading.
Prayers for his speedy and full recovery.
“Does ANYTHING occur which God has not permitted?”
If that were the case then why try since God has already made up his mind.
Go read the Old Testament. God gave man the ability to make his own decisions.
