Just called my Congressman, Elijah Cummings re "not re-litigating the election"

My message was:

1. Press for a special prosecutor

2. Push for a subpoena of Trump's tax returns

And 3. About "Not re-litigating the election," as politicians keep saying, NO. If evidence shows that people were duped by a foreign adversary in a way that substantially affected the election results, then yes -- go ahead and "re-litigate."

If the connections with Russia go as far as I think they do, and if they can prove it, then we're in a full-blown constitutional crisis. At that point, court martial, prison, and even invalidation of the election results should be considered. Why not a referendum for some procedure, or a do-over for the Electors, or some other mechanism to validate the choice of the American People and give us President Hillary Rodham Clinton?

It might not get that far (even if the facts do), and in any case it's smart for politicians to say it's the furthest thing from their minds. But it's not the furthest thing from mine, and I like giving my representatives plenty of room to go further. Re-litigate away, Congressman!

1. FFS, there is no Constitutional way to "invalidate the election". And it's asinine

to even bring it up.

5. Remember the cartoon of the founding fathers?

"I keep thinking we should include something in the Constitution in case the people elect a fucking moron?"

2. The only way to get any justice in this would be to have another election.

Even if Trump is impeached, arrested or put in a straitjacket and hauled away, Republicans will still have the White House and that isn't right. Nothing will ever happen, of course, but it's very unfair.

4. No republican can be in the WH, the election was won by Hillary even without

the interference of Russia.

There is no way he won those rust belt states, no way.

8. I bet the FBI has them.

There are hundreds of copies everwhere...for every lawsuit, loan application...several entities will normally have copies of his tax returns. It amazes me that they haven't been leaked.

The last of his 2005, just 2 pages was obviously leaked by him. He needed a good yesr to qualify for a loan, show the writer who said he wasnt worth what he said, and get Melania's citizenship, the year they married.
