I think Trump will be inaugurated to be President.

I also think congress will spend millions having hearings about this and do little about it.

Moore needs to focus more on his diet than the silly conspiracy theories. As much as part of me would love to see this happen, there's no way in hell it's going to.

And.... even though I said a "part of me would love to see this happen..." it's only a part of me. I am absolutely convinced that Donald Trump is about to become one of the 5 worst things ever to happen to this country, but I am not at all convinced that an electoral college rejection of the popular vote is the best thing for us now. The die is cast, the damage is done, I don't think we have any choice but to ride it out.

If the EC selected someone else for the Presidency, it would create a Constitutional crisis of unprecedented proportions, with a tsunami of litigation coming from the Trump camp, the Clinton crew, whichever person the EC selected as President (assuming it is not Clinton, which it may very well not be), and literally thousands (if not tens of thousands) of other parties right down to individual voters, many (if not most) of whom could legitimately claim standing. The country is already more deeply and bitterly divided than at any time since the Civil War, and that would quite likely cause irreparable damage to whatever is left of the Union. And whomever ultimately ascended to the Oval Office would be one of the most ineffective Presidents in history, because he or she would be delegitimized in the eyes of half the country. It would be a catastrophe.

Let him hang himself, let him be impeached, let him destroy the GOP. Give them NOTHING. Block everything, vote "yes" on nothing. Make them figure out how to make this **** work. Screw them; let them burn down half the country so that the word "Republican" becomes an obscenity blocked by the filtering software on every message board on the internet.

Michael Moore, stick to what you do best - eating cheeseburgers, making movies, eating cheeseburgers, and eating cheeseburgers.

NOPE. Not possible. Unless CIA/NSA has absolute proof like videos, taped phone calls, emails, etc then rumors only are not sufficient.

Why violence? That is absurd.

Much as I wish Trump had not won the primary and then gotten enough electorial votes, it would be a monumental disaster and absolutely horrible for our country.

If there is definitive proof that the russians affected the election results.....We have some serious problems. No matter WHAT we do-none of it is a good decision.

But reasonable doubt is pretty bad too.
