In one last desperate move to stay in office, what could Mr. Trump have accomplished with the Insurrection Act? I’ll speculate that given the stubborn will that Trump demonstrated over the course of his presidency, invoking the Insurrection Act was one daring step away from martial law and a suspension of the formality of declaring Biden the winner which would have formally removed Trump from his job. He could have and in my opinion would have then ordered the returning of electors to the states and/or replacement of those electors with his choir of fake electors that had no legal standing whatsoever.
Which brings us again to Mike Pence who wanted no part of the fake elector scheme:
“President Trump is wrong. I had no right to overturn the election. The presidency belongs to the American people and the American people alone. And frankly, there is no idea more un-American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president.“
Aware of the rioters’ chants to ‘hang Mike Pence,’ the President responded with this sentiment, ‘maybe our supporters have the right idea.’
