Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election by 74 electoral college votes and more than seven million popular votes, but he’s having a hard time admitting to himself or anyone else that he’s a loser. Keeping the country divided and his cult followers deluded, Trump has gone on a campaign to prove that his loss was due to election fraud, no evidence of which has so far been provided in the many court cases being funded by a Trump PAC. The Trump legal team’s score at the moment is 1-59 in court case wins versus losses, with two more equally ridiculous lawsuits already filed.
A president cannot appoint a special counsel to any case on his own; the Department of Justice must do so. Current Attorney General Bill Barr says that no special counsel is needed since no evidence of widespread election fraud exists that could change the outcome of the election. However, Trump has already announced Barr’s departure, which may have come from a resignation and may have been a firing by a president frustrated with Barr’s refusal to engage more in corruption than he already has by thwarting the democratic process for a power hungry Trump.
At this point, Trump could choose an acting attorney general upon Barr’s departure and the acting status will keep the person from having to be confirmed by Congress during Trump’s final 27 days in office. Reportedly, Trump considered Sidney Powell, the crackpot conspiracy theorist who promised to “release the Kraken” of evidence of voter fraud that never came, as special counsel, but recently told her he wouldn’t choose her. But Trump doesn’t get to choose. He can only strong-arm a new acting attorney general into bending the law for him.
Twitter let Trump know he has no chance of winning in his attempts to overturn a democratic election and that they’re ready for him to just go. Read some of their comments below:
