    40 Electoral College members demand briefing on Russian interference
    thehill.com



    Forty members of the Electoral College on Tuesday signed a letter demanding an intelligence briefing on Russian interference in the election ahead of their Dec. 19 vote.

    Ten electors originally signed the letter when it was published Monday, and 30 more have since added their names.

    The open letter — led by Christine Pelosi, the daughter of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) — urged Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to give a detailed briefing on President-elect Donald Trump's ties to Russia.

    Unless other GOP Electors get on board, this is going nowhere.

    Peace,

    There is no fight unless you call one potential faithless elector a fight. These electors making demands of the CIA are all Democrats, save one. Their votes are already for Hillary Clinton. This will be worthless unless the Republican Electors all of a sudden get interested in these hacking rumors. Considering how stuck in the bubble these people are I can't see bunches of them switching teams just because of some rumors. Shoot, even hard core intel facts might not be enough to get Republican Electors to change their minds.

    Peace

    Peace,

    It's up to the individual to determine what is a waste of time. Personally I'm not looking for any favors from the GOP because of one rogue (some might say conscious) elector. In fact it is more likely the GOP would vote for Trump even if there is convincing proof a cheat or fix was in play for the presidential election.

    Peace
