I would guess that Biden will ask the people to stay away and have an inauguration broadcast on TV only. Unless that vaccine gets rolled out pretty sharpish in the interim.

I mentioned this on a US-based Facebook group and was reliably informed that the type of charges that are building up against Trump won't be touched by a pardon, even a Presidential one.

I'm just curious how he's going to try and spin it so it comes across to his rabid fanbase that losing was his intention all along.

Or if he's already in the secret tunnel heading towards a non-extradition country of his choice.

Sorry to keep posting after myself, but...

The General Services Administration has informed President-elect Joe Biden that the Trump administration is ready to begin the formal transition process, according to a letter from Administrator Emily Murphy sent Monday afternoon and obtained by CNN.The letter is the first step the administration has taken to acknowledge President Donald Trump's defeat, more than two weeks after Biden was declared the winner in the election.

Murphy said she had not been pressured by the White House to delay the formal transition and did not make a decision "out of fear or favoritism."

"Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts," Murphy wrote. "I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official -- including those who work at the White House or GSA -- with regard to the substance or timing of my decision. To be clear, I did not receive any direction to delay my determination."

The letter signals that Murphy has formally signed off on Biden's victory, a normally perfunctory process known as ascertainment. The move will allow the transition to officially begin, permitting current administration agency officials to coordinate with the incoming Biden team, and providing millions in government funding for the transition.

The move toward ascertainment comes after Michigan formally certified its election results on Monday and Georgia certified its razor-thin presidential results on Friday. Pennsylvania is nearing certification of its election results, too.

99.9% probably. And that was the most infuriating part - that anyone with a grain of common sense knew exactly why he wanted the job - to line his pockets and those of his friends, while inflating his already over-stuffed ego, and giving nothing back to the US citizens who were blinded enough to vote for him.

It was actually painful to see people you know and like defend him, tacitly or directly, despite everything that was known about him (failed businessman, wife beater, alleged child rapist, certified ephebophile), but still went on the record as saying they 'think he'll do a good job'.

Once is accidental, twice is coincidental. More then three times is enemy action.

(Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s election campaign issued a statement on Sunday distancing itself from Sidney Powell, a lawyer who made baseless allegations of voter fraud at a news conference on Thursday.
Quote:
Trump had referred to Powell as one of his lawyers in a Nov. 14 tweet.
“Rudy Giuliani, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, a truly great team, added to our other wonderful lawyers and representatives,” Trump said in the tweet.
Powell, without providing evidence, said last week that electronic voting systems had switched millions of ballots to favor Biden.
Tucker Carlson, an influential Fox News host, on Thursday criticized Powell for a lack of evidence to support her claims.
“She never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another. Not one,” Carlson said.
It's truly falling apart around their ears

His presidency isn't over for 2 months. he still has a job to do, and it was part and parcel of the job he chose to undertake that he continues to serve as Commander-in-Chief until the date he leaves office. For him to do nothing is a betrayal of the office, and an insult to the quarter million US citizens who have died because of his inaction.

No other president has shown as much contempt for the job that he has, and continues to show as his cult-like folowers still worship every breath he takes.

Calm words from Jay Kuo again
Quote:

Good morning! A “Deep Breath Moment” to start your weekend:

From all the attacks from the White House, the silence from the GOP leadership, the crazy conspiracies from the Trump Campaign legal team, and the stonewalling from the GSA, it’s easy to forget all the things that went very, very well in the last few weeks. So let’s review:

First, we held a gigantic election with record setting turnout without any incident of violence, intimidation, widespread fraud or substantial error. All the issues that have surfaced regard only a few votes here or there, or a few GOP voters in PA trying to vote by mail illegally. We had been preparing for huge disruptions and scary security breaches by foreign states. They never materialized.

Second, the counting, certifications and recounts in key states such as Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Arizona have proceeded without disruption or incident. There have been angry words exchanged, and some drama in certain counties, but the top election officials have done their jobs magnificently and no significant violence occurred. Just a few heated “Proud Boy” punches here and there.

Third, the courts, both federal and state, have held the line. The Trump campaign and its allies have filed 33 post-election lawsuits and are now just 2-31. The two that prevailed affect only a small handful of ballots that were segregated to begin with. Importantly, according to lead counsel for the Democrats:

No court has delayed the counting of a single ballot

No court has thrown out a single already counted ballot

No court has delayed the certification of any result anywhere

This means, practically speaking, that there is no realistic path for the Trump campaign to bring a challenge before the Supreme Court that will affect anywhere near enough votes to overturn the election.

Finally, even Trump lackeys have failed to do anything anywhere to stop the forward motion. In the past 48 hours, the two board of canvassing members in Wayne County backed down and certified the results there (though they lamely want take-backsies now, lol); the MI senate and house leaders affirmed their commitment to the results even after a much publicized meeting with Trump, and the GA governor certified that state’s win for Biden despite being called out by the president and pilloried by his followers.

When I look at all the defenses that held against this assault upon our democratic process, I feel grateful. Election officials, the courts, and even GOP lawmakers placed under national scrutiny have actually done the right thing. This is why I see no reason for us to lose any sleep, and I certainly don’t.

Will we see more madness and shenanigans before this is over? I absolutely believe so, yes. Trump’s temper tantrum is still going, and he deeply fears the end of his presidency and the loss of his immunity from prosecution. But as his losses pile up and as more states certify, the acknowledgement of reality will set in, particularly among GOP leaders and more moderate GOP voters.

I consider this then to be a national cooling off period. Already, I can sense that folks on our side feel a lot less anxious than they did on the night of November 3, or even a week afterward when it was clear Trump would not concede.

So deep breath! Next up is Monday, when MI and PA are set to certify. When that happens, more of the red wall will crumble.

AFAIK, the only people caught in attempted fraud (including the case you recently highlighted) were Trump supporters.

As it happens, Trump has started to move on from lying about imaginary fraud, and is now inviting State lawmakers to the White House in an attempt to get them to ignore the will of the people and overturn the result of the election in their state.

It's bizarre enough that it's actually possible to do this. But even more so for Trump to attempt... actually, ignore that. It's exactly the kind of thing he would do.

Kinda getting bored of saying 'I told you so...'

RE: The Trump Presidency

If there was 'fraud', it was at a miniscule level, perpetrated by individuals. The alleged mass organised fraud being implied by Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Guiliani and his equally as deranged lackeys just doesn't exist, as has been proven by courts all over the country.

Bizarre, though, that voter fraud is only being alleged in a handful of states, and none of those states being the ones narrowly won by Trump.

We saw this coming.

Hilary would have been the better president. Biden will be the better president. They've just got to figure out how to dispose of the old one before he starts pushing buttons, the purpose of which he doesn't have the mental capacity to understand.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (Cisa) chief Chris Krebs has, over this last week, stated on several occasions that the security and legitimacy of the election has been second to none, contradicting the baseless lies coming from Trump.

So Trump fired him.

It's so close to a dictatorship at this point it's no longer funny. Remember when we were told we had to respect the democratic process? 




It's now been pretty much officially confirmed that Trump's idiotic & uneducated assertions that postal/absentee voting would lead to massive voter fraud lost him the Georgia win.

Funny thing is, he doesn't have to. At 12pm on the 20th January he ceases to be president and immediately becomes an unwelcome guest, with or without his acceptance of the facts.

He's already packed the supreme court, but someone very high up in the military has already gone on record to imply that they answer to the current president & administration, and on that date the new President fills that role.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

During the mandated recount in Georgia A usb stick with 2,600 uncounted votes been discovered. The numbers are a bit wooly but they marginally reduced Biden's lead by about 800 votes. Way short of the 14,000 vote lead Biden is currently enjoying.

Heads are being asked to roll, as it was human error on the part of one person in one county, nothing to do with poll watchers or automated voting systems. However, you can bet your sweet bippy Trump's going to demand yet another recount.

Hopefully it'll be refused, or it'll set a time-consuming and expensive precedent. I just wonder what the outcome would be in all those states that called for Trump were forced to do a recount.
