Rachel Maddow defined how her present found out that Trump’s faux elector plot was coordinated throughout a number of states.
We had the paperwork we had the faux slates of electors as a result of the Republicans who have been concerned within the scheme really despatched them in to the Nationwide Archives which is the place actual electoral votes are speculated to be despatched. You possibly can see the true elector paperwork. You possibly can see each state does them a bit of in a different way. All of them come on some number of certificates they’ve their very own quirks, their very own fancy or not fancy paper, decorations and seals that is what the true one appears to be like like.
Take a look at the cast Republican paperwork. They don’t look so fancy. Actually, they match. The identical formatting, identical font, identical spacing and virtually the very same wording on each single one due to the apparent similarities between all these cast paperwork from all these completely different states, it actually didn’t appear to be this, the Republicans in all these completely different states, all independently had the identical concept that they might all commit this type of fraud all in the identical font if that was taking place independently, they might have all despatched in paperwork kind of completely different or no less than matched what the correct format was speculated to appear like of their state. As an alternative, all of them matched from all of the completely different states it seemed to be a coordinated effort any person telling all these Republicans in all of the completely different states right here’s what you’ll do. Put your identify right here. The faux elector scheme, apparently a centrally organized scheme working by way of a number of states.
It wasn’t till the 1/6 Committee was investigating and Maddow hammered away at this over a number of reveals that the Justice Division determined that they possibly ought to open an investigation into this fraud.
The Trump marketing campaign didn’t precisely attempt to cover what they have been making an attempt to drag. They didn’t make a lot of an effort to cowl their tracks, however what they did was in opposition to the regulation. It ought to have been investigated, and it’s an open and shut case.
Without the public embarrassment of the DOJ by people like Rachel Maddow, the investigation might need by no means occurred.
