The Electoral College was set to meet today to cast their votes for president. That’s why it has come as terrifying news to Donald Trump and his supporters that a group of rogue electors has accused him of criminal conspiracy.
Occupy Democrats reported that some electors are saying that they have been threatened by Trump if they decide to cast their votes against him.
“We have gotten reports from multiple people that the Donald Trump campaign is putting pressure on Republican electors to vote for him based on future political outcomes based on whether they vote for Donald Trump or not,” an elector said. “It’s all political, basically. If Trump becomes the president, he’s going to be able to put pressure on the state parties and they won’t be involved anymore.”
The electors that say they have been threatened are the “Hamilton Electors” who are trying to vote against Trump despite the fact that he carried their states. They have named themselves after Alexander Hamilton because of his remarks in “Federalist Papers No. 68” where he wrote that electors have a sacred duty to ensure “the office of President will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.”
Despite the fact that there is no evidence that Trump threatened these electors, they have already gotten lawyers involved.
“Those allegations, if proven, would constitute a crime, and if coordinated could constitute conspiracy,” said Jessica Marlies, a lawyer for these electors.
“In order for the electoral college votes to be considered certifiable and reliable it has to be taken without undue influence, including intimidation,” she continued. “I would call on Donald Trump and his campaign to immediately do a thorough transparent internal review to determine the truth of those allegations and to come forward publicly and immediately to let electors know that he and his campaign support their constitutional right to exercise independent judgment as electors, as the founding fathers contemplated.”
