On Monday, seven states authorized their Republican electors to cast their votes. Monday was when the states had chosen to have their electors cast the states’ votes for president. By the end of the day, Joe Biden had gathered 306 electoral votes.

By then, the Democrats were ecstatic — they believed that the White House would soon be theirs. In fact, they don’t have it quite yet.

Congress can still choose to reject the electoral votes, which would mean voting for the president would move to the House of Representatives.

Additionally, more evidence of massive fraud keeps finding its way into the light. The audit of the Antrim Dominion machines shows that they were programmed for fraud and almost certainly used as programmed.

Besides that, there are also affidavits signed under penalty of perjury from eyewitness and expert witnesses across America alleging fraud.

And still, other than those, Sidney Powell claims that she has documentary evidence that votes were sent overseas where they were manipulated.



John Ratcliffe, the director of National Intelligence, will be issuing his report on December 18. If massive fraud or foreign interference is indeed provable, the election and its results cannot stand.

To prepare for those possibilities, seven states — Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico — all selected two slates of electors: one slate that accepts a Democrat victory anticipates a turnaround by President Trump.

According to Reuters, if states select different electors’ slates, the House and the Senate can ignore one of those slates.  However, if the House and the Senate select different slates from those states, it’s entirely unclear what happens next, especially since the Electoral Count Act (which cannot trump the Constitution) is not entirely clear:

Academics have sketched out several scenarios. Under one, Pence, president of the Senate, could throw out both sets of a state’s electors. Another contemplates that the House of Representatives would end up choosing between Biden and Trump. [This scenario would give one vote to each state, and since the Republicans have more states with Republican majorities, President Trump would likely be the winner]. There is even a scenario in which the House’s Speaker, currently Democrat Nancy Pelosi, could become acting president.
