The news just keeps getting worse for Donald Trump and his enablers. This week, it was revealed that 14 fake electors, who hoped to overturn the election results in multiple states, had been subpoenaed by the 1/6 Commission.
The false electors will almost certainly face consequences for their actions. And MSNBC legal analyst Daniel Goldman thinks they will turn on the people above them in the scheme.
During a Friday episode of Deadline: White House, Nicolle Wallace remarked, “Donald Trump is the through line. The whole thing seems top-down driven. There’s no way that seven random states that Trump lost bigly, if you will, came up with ‘Let’s fake it!'”
“When I say Rudy Giuliani was orchestrating it, I don’t know who came up with the idea, but we know Giuliani was …. at the hub of it. Whose idea it was, we still don’t know. But you’re right, there’s no question that regardless of whether it was his idea or not — and we can be sure that it was not — Donald Trump adopted this and ran with this and pressed it publicly, privately, on recordings, in every way shape or form. So to the extent that there is a conspiracy to overturn the election, through the use of these fake electors … to the extent that there was such an illegal conspiracy to defraud the Untied States, the evidence indicates thus far that Donald Trump was involved in that conspiracy.”
