There is a difference, though. Back in January, there was no threat of a civil war if the Senate failed to convict Trump after the House impeached him. Although, given the Dems' dislike of the Second Amendment and failure to properly arm themselves for removal of tyrants, perhaps the Republicans wouldn't feel the need to remove Trump.>>8138>This might be naive, but so if/when Trump orders members of law enforcement to interfere with the Electoral College vote... wouldn't the law enforcement representatives simply refuse?
Yes. The FBI, Secret Service, and other federal law-enforcement agencies are staffed with people who would very likely recognize an attempt to unlawfully usurp power and refuse to obey it.>>8143
The federal Constitution leaves discretion to the several states concerning how to select their electors, including discretion about how to handle allegations of fraud in the state's popular vote. There is no role for the federal executive branch to question the process by which the state chose its electors.
