More EC Fun
Via The Hill: Over 50 Dem electors now demanding intelligence briefing
More than 50 Democratic voters in the Electoral College are now asking for an intelligence briefing from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper over reports of Russian meddling in the election, according to a report in Politico.
Fifty-four of 232 Democratic electors have now signed a letter asking for a briefing before the Electoral College votes Dec. 19.
Ok, so a portion of the electors from the losing party wants a briefing? Drama, indeed.
(Yes, snark, but the hyperventilation on this issue is getting hard to take. As I have repeatedly noted, I do not like this institution and think that it violates basic democratic theory. But, it is the constitutional process with which we are saddled and fantasies that the EC will rise up and change the outcome from November 8th is, as I keep saying, pure fantasy).
