    The Electoral College has no authority to demand anything.

    I think it is stupid that Trump voters elected him without Trump being as transparent as all of the other candidates, but Trump got the votes, and the EC will elect him.

    Can't use the EC to overturn an election just because we don't like the results of the election.

    The authority of the EC is vested in their unchallenged ability to vote as they wish. But what purpose does that body serve if not as a safety valve to prevent the installation of a seditious demagogue like Trump as the supreme leader of the world. It is the patriotic duty of each and every elector to evaluate the reports of Trump's involvement with Russia and weigh the part Russia played in helping him to become the president elect.

    There is a bipartisan movement among presidential electors to obtain pertinent information from the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper. This letter was sent to Clapper 5 days ago. Hopefully, he responded in due haste. If not, the electors may seek a delay in voting.
    I am sure Obama would be more than willing to issue an executive order to accommodate them if need be.

    President Obama has no authority over, or regarding the Electoral College.

    I was not pleased by the election of Donald Trump- hell I still think it is crazy- but absent clear evidence of treason or malfeasance- the Electoral College is obligated to do its Constitutional duty.

    This is just an attempt to subvert our election system- and its wrong.

    The only one trolling is you Henry.

    The fact remains that Donald Trump is the only Presidential candidate in decades not to show voters his tax returns so voters could evaluate what conflicts of interest he may have.

    But Trump voters didn't care about that- so he was elected anyway. It is perfectly valid to ask Trump to be Presidential and show his tax returns- but Trump of course can continue to hide all of his information- none of his supporters will care.

    That is the key phrase...."subversion of our election system." We have 17 intelligence agencies saying that is exactly what happened. Let's give the Electoral College all the information it needs to make an informed decision.

    Alas, all these posts and not single one (except, of course, mine) sincere since they demand things of others they are unwilling to do themselves. Post the .pdf files of your tax returns if you wish to be taken seriously. Now that's not a demand....just a cry for fairness, for equality....the things you (say you) want MOSTEST!

    More people voted against Trump than voted for him.

    More states voted for Trump than voted against him.
    More electors will vote for Trump than will vote against him.
    With well over the required number to make him the next President.

    Besides , most of us underestimated the utter ruthless voter suppression

    And the rally suppression!

    And the enthusiasm suppression!

    And they suppressed the fuck out of her likability too!
