A bipartisan group of electoral college voters have put their name on an open letter to the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, published by Christine Pelosi (daughter of much loved Nancy). The letter requests, that before electors vote, they receive a full intelligence briefing on how Putin rigged the election in favor of Donald Trump.
“The Electors require to know from the intelligence community whether there are ongoing investigations into ties between Donald Trump, his campaign or associates, and Russian government interference in the election, the scope of those investigations, how far those investigations may have reached, and who was involved in those investigations,” she wrote. “We further require a briefing on all investigative findings, as these matters directly impact the core factors in our deliberations of whether Mr. Trump is fit to serve as President of the United States.”
In response to this letter Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta has issued a statement.
“The bipartisan electors’ letter raises very grave issues involving our national security,” Podesta said in the statement. “Electors have a solemn responsibility under the Constitution and we support their efforts to have their questions addressed. … Each day that month, our campaign decried the interference of Russia in our campaign and its evident goal of hurting our campaign to aid Donald Trump,” he said. “Despite our protestations, this matter did not receive the attention it deserved by the media in the campaign. We now know that the CIA has determined Russia’s interference in our elections was for the purpose of electing Donald Trump. This should distress every American.”
With an ever increasing amount of evidence, coming to light, of the nefarious manipulation of the American democratic system by the dictator Putin – a Trump presidency is looking less and less likely. We call on the electoral college to do what is right and choose someone other than Trump.
