A Cheery Note

A highly plausible scenario is that Trump loses the election, he declares that his loss resulted from voter fraud, he refuses to leave office until the matter is resolved, and he initiates a slew of law suits hoping to keep the question of who won tied up in the courts indefinitely. 

In a Washington Post op-ed yesterday, the distinguished Constitutional scholar Laurence Tribe and two colleagues pointed out that cabinet members who tried to act in their appointed capacity on Trump’s behalf after a Trump loss could be subject to criminal prosecution.

It’s far from certain, but I think that more likely than not we’ll get through this nightmare: that Trump will be out of office by January 21, and that we’ll be able to begin the long and arduous task of repairing the damage.
