It's going to be a nightmare.
We're already seeing such bizarre stuff -- Senators and Congressmen maneuvering to get Pence to delay confirming Biden's victory, Trump trying to muscle the Georgia secretary of state to change the vote count; Dick Cheney (yes, Dick Cheney!) organizing a letter from every single former Secretary of Defense to tell Trump to back off; Lindsay Graham, Liz Cheney and Paul Ryan sounding alarms about what Trump is planning; even Tom Cotton backing slowly away from the debacle - and that was only Sunday.
I can't imagine what Trump's Georgia rally on Monday will be like.
And then the Georgia vote on Tuesday, the Electoral College confirmation or whatever it will be in the Senate Wednesday.
Leaving Trump two more weeks to declare Martial Law before the Biden inauguration.
Until I read this article tonight at Balloon Juice, I hadn't realized that the people Trump now has in charge at the Pentagon are very frightening:
Not a reassuring bunch. The Constitution means nothing to these people, nor to Trump.
There is no way this letter is put together and then pushed for publication unless someone senior, most likely either senior uniformed personnel (general officers/flag officers) and/or senior executive service personnel at the Department of Defense or one of the Services unless someone got a message out to one or more of their former bosses. Someone is very worried that the Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, his Chief of Staff Kash Patel (who really works for Devin Nunes and was once thrown out of a Federal courtroom in Texas for being an ass and sanctioned by the judge in the case with an order of ineptitude), the Acting Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence and Acting as the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations & Low Intensity Conflict Ezra Cohen-Watnick (who is the protege of LTG Flynn, Michael Ledeen, and Safra Catz and who has been completely unqualified for every position he’s been appointed to in the Trump administration), the Acting Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Anthony Tata (a noted racist, anti-Semite, Islamophone, homophobe, and all around bigot), and the Special Advisor to the Acting Secretary of Defense Douglas MacGregor (noted extremist kook) are up to something dangerous.
