7. The answer to your question, as I see it . . .

. . . is that, constitutionally-speaking, the answer is clearly "yes." Under the Constitution, Trump was "elected President" by the vote of the Electors, per Article II, Amendment XII, and the process laid out in 3 U.S.C. Chapter 1. Whatever cheating may have occurred in the course of the general election simply has no bearing on the legitimacy of Trump's election by the Electors.

Any analogy to other situations, apart from the Constitution, is per se irrelevant and not valid.
