    IMO this is a big deal.

    he's been a trump insider since 2015....trump respects him because he's actually a billionaire, so everyone else in the administration respects him too.

    who knows how trump is going to react to this (petulance springs to mind)....but i'm fairly certain this is causing shock waves through trumpworld.

    tick-tock.

    No doubt a very big domino along with several already could well be the end of this nonsense.

    The Congress counts the electoral votes and Pence announces the results. If he refuses to announce, the vote is there and Biden is Pres.

    Biden will take the oath of office and Trump will be escourted out of the White House at 12:00 p.m. on January 20th.
    I'm not arguing with you, I'm just wondering what the exact legal process is if he refuses.

    There is no established legal process because this shit is unprecedented but the written law is clear. We could see just exactly how the legal process is constructed in this case, but I am sure it will amount to the orange moron being dragged kicking and screaming out of the WH. However, I do not think it will come to that because the orange moron is a fucking coward. Expect capitulation soon.

    Rest assured, he'll be moved out by 20 Jan., hook or crook.

    I'm suspecting that a vast majority of Americans will take pleasure of knowing that there isn't a deluded nutter residing in the WH.

    Biden is neither saint or savior, but hands down more qualified and reasonably normal compared to that sociopath of the last four years.

    Three dozen live nuclear weapons were aboard U.S. Air Force bombers at three airbases when al Qaeda struck New York and Washington.

    Because of inadequate communications equipment and procedures, top U.S. officials couldn’t talk to each other or to anyone else.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to speak to Bush to know why the U.S. was preparing to go to DEFCON 3 — but the White House couldn’t put him through to Air Force One. Bush had no way to receive phone calls.

    Fake reporter unmasked at White House

    The White House faced fresh accusations of a clandestine propaganda campaign yesterday after it emerged it granted regular access to a rightwing blogger with a habit of asking President Bush easy questions.
    Jeff Gannon, who represented a rightwing site owned by a Texas-based Republican activist, had been a regular at White House briefings since 2003 but aroused reporters' suspicions after posing ideologically loaded questions.

    There is that, and we know we'll have a Democrat as President, even if it's not Biden to start with (worst case scenario).

    Which means the military and the secret service have a new boss.

    True, but doesn't every ex-president still have a secret service detail for ten years after leaving office?

    What a load of bollocks to even be discussing Trump refusing to leave the WH - the damage this arsehole has done to the US and its standing in the world is massive

    Trump fears Giuliani, other lawyers in Biden vote challenge are ‘fools that are making him look bad’


    President Donald Trump is sweating over his campaign lawyers’ dismal and often outlandish efforts to reverse President-elect Joe Biden’s projected electoral victory.


    Trump is worried that his campaign’s legal team, which is being led by his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, is comprised of “fools that are making him look bad,” NBC News reported Monday.


    That crew, which has unironically called itself an “elite strike force team,” to date has failed to win any legal victories that would invalidate votes for Biden, the former Democratic vice president, even as the legal eagles tout wildly broad claims of fraud for which they have offered no convincing evidence.


    On Sunday, one of the strike force’s members, the conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell, was effectively fired after suggesting — again without any actual proof — that the Republican governor and secretary of state of Georgia were part of a plot to rig the election for Biden.


    Powell’s ouster came days after she made similarly over-the-top claims at a press conference at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington.


    Trump has complained to White House aides and outside allies about how Giuliani and Powell conducted themselves at that event, NBC reported.


    Before Powell got the axe Sunday, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a close Trump ally and former top federal prosecutor, called the president’s legal team a “national embarrassment.”


    But when asked why Trump doesn’t fire the former New York City mayor Giuliani and other attorneys who remain on the team, a person familiar with the president’s thinking gave a profane, shoulder shrug of an answer.


    “Who the f--k knows?” that source told NBC News.

    MORE Trump fears Giuliani and other Biden vote challenge lawyers are fools



    Probably because Trump can’t find any respectable lawyers to represent him at this point.

    Chris Christie tells Trump to end election lawsuits, calls his legal team ‘national embarrassment’




    Key Points

    • Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Sunday that the president should end his legal fights challenging the results of the election and concede to president-elect Joe Biden.
    • “You have an obligation to present the evidence, the evidence has not been presented,” Christe said.
    • Christie described Trump’s legal team as a “national embarrassment” and Powell’s explosive claims as “outrageous conduct.”
    • Trump has alleged that the U.S. presidential election was riddled with “massive improprieties and fraud” and has therefore rejected the results.

    Indeed, I was just thinking similar.

    Just gives him someone else to blame when things do not go his way!

    I'm waiting for the book by someone hanging in there to the end to spill the beans about what went on in the whitehouse in the final days. I can imagine there was a lot of shouting and foot stomping and pouting and finger pointing.
