The Daily Beast reports that Trump will not stop fighting even after Congress declares Biden the 47th president on January 6. He will likely keep fighting after the Inauguration.

Trump is promoting demonstrations and protests in D.C. on January 6, hoping for disorders by his gun-toting, maskless cult. He dreams of a putsch.

Eleven Senators, led by Texas’ Ted Cruz, announced that they would not vote to certify the Electoral College vote unless there was an audit of the votes. This, despite the complete absence of any evidence of voter fraud in any state. Georgia counted its vote three times and it came out the same. Other states also recounted their votes. This statement is pure pandering to salve Trump’s fragile ego and to persuade him not to run a Trumpet against them. Senator John Thune of South Dakota has been heroic; Trump tweeted to try to encourage the governor of SD to run against Thune, but she declined. Thune dismissed the Trump tweets as “that’s the way he communicates.” Senator Lisa Murkowski said the only loyalty test she took was to uphold the Constitution. She will not join the seditious dozen.

From the New York Times:

The group is led by Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and also includes Senators Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, James Lankford of Oklahoma, Steve Daines of Montana, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee and Mike Braun of Indiana, and Senators-elect Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Roger Marshall of Kansas, Bill Hagerty of Tennessee and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama.

Missouri Josh Hawley set off the race to undermine the Constitution. He makes an even dozen. Their refusal to certify Biden’s election won’t change the results. But it will demonstrate that they care more about Trump than the Constitution or their oath of office.

Leonie Haimson tweeted this morning:

On a popular discussion site, a Trump supporter writes of Jan. 6 rally, “I’m thinking it will be literal war on that day…we’ll storm offices & physically remove & even kill all D.C. traitors & reclaim the country.” Hope @FBI is paying attention!

Why will Trump continue this farce? What’s in it for him?

First, he can continue to be the center of attention.

Second, he can spitefully undermine the legitimacy of Biden’s decisive win.

Third, he never has to admit that he lost, that he is a LOSER.

Fourth, he can continue to send out fund-raising appeals to his cult and pocketing the proceeds.

He should be arrested and charged with sedition and incitement to violence.
