40 Electoral College members demand briefing on Russian interference

December 14, 2016

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.

“We further require a briefing on all investigative findings, as these matters directly impact the core factors in our deliberations of whether Mr. Trump is fit to serve as President of the United States,” the letter read.

The Clinton campaign applauded the effort Monday, saying it had repeatedly warned about Russian interference aimed at swaying the election in Trump’s favor.

    That is so stupid, who do they think they are? They are a messenger, to deliver the winner of their district. Fire them and replace them with someone that will vote the way their people voted. They don’t have a security clearance, so getting a briefing is out of the question. They are saying brief me because I may change the votes of all my people.

  • Elizabeth Davis says:

    The Clinton mafia is never going away.

  • 2bltap says:

    I honestly dont think anything will come of this. How are these assholes going to convince any one that they neeed to have these briefings in the first place. Another point is that these butthurt people need to know that they will not be allowed to gaind the required security background checks in order to get proper classification rights.

    Semper Fi

  • jbarrus says:

    Who in the HEQQ do these people think they are????
    Their only duty is to ratify the election by We, the People.
    Any action other than this is TREASON AGAINST THE PEOPLE.

  • This is not looking good for Trump. Now there are 40 electors that want a CIA briefing. Soros can buy off 37 of these assholes to vote for Hillary and he’ll do it. Then she becomes president. Then I would expect Trump to challenge it in court especially if some of these electors are in states that bind them to the winner in the election in their states. This Russia thing will not fade peacefully into the night. The Russians couldn’t hack into voting machines because they are not on the Internet. They didn’t directly interfere with our election. If they did anything they passed emails to Wikileaks. But Wikileaks denies that they did so what did the Russians really do? Nothing. They were a non-factor in our election. Only people with shit for brains believe Russia interfered with our election. That covers the Pelosis pretty good.

  • roboteq says:

    In the meantime, Obama has agreed with Trump that the Russians did not have influence on the election. The Catch 22 for Progressives is that if the Russians had an influence on the elections, it would only be because they were successful in hacking Hillary Clinton’s emails so easily.

  • Roy Fredrichsen says:

    I only hope Pelosis’ daughter is smarter than her mother who said about the O’Bama Care, “We had to pass it to find out what was in it”. That is the ultimate sign of incompetence. The Dumbocrats are worried the Russians had something to do with Trump getting elected. What they DO NOT realize is that the American public is tired of all the nonsense coming from O’Bummer and company and want a change that works. Truth be known, it probably was the Chinese dong the “hacking”, but they’d rather believe it was the Russians.

  • parthenon1 says:

    None of these gyrations should matter the rules are already set by law or principal votes must be cast in the same amount and manner as the voters of the state voted. Electors do not have the right to over-rule the voters.

  • DML says:

    The Dem’s are making complete fools of themselves and the DNC.

    I would add Hillary but we all know she was already a fool.

  • VanceJ says:

    Democraps will do anything to overthrow the vote.!!!!!

  • James Maxwell says:

    Left Wing Democrat Socialist who cannot accept the fact that Americans from
    both parties came together to remove the stain of corruption that has been
    inflicted upon our Nation over the past 8 years. Not to mention that they have
    been declared persona non gratis in the political scene. I wonder how many
    of these Felons in waiting will be out of work when Trump is sworn in and also
    come the next election cycle as more and more are removed from the political
    offices? The electors who were selected to vote as their state voters
    went are corrupting the system to go against the will of the voters. Each state
    has different rules for those chose to be electors and represent their state.
    Some states are loosey goosey in their instruction and wording. Some
    States do not give them freedom and demand, under penalty of law, that they
    obey the will of the people. The corruption of the left and those who do
    not have the morals nor integrity to follow the will of the people should be
    removed from that role and replaced with people of morals and character

  • justinwachin says:

    Hey Christine, I would question whether your mom Nancy Pelosi is fit to serve in any capacity in government.

    The flaw in this whole request is we did not vote for people to decide who should be elected president. We voted for a president and we expect the electors to do their job and vote as instructed. I would like to see a law passed that would make faithless electors guilty of treason and executed. If the elector doesn’t wish to carry out their job as instructed they should step aside.

    Make no mistake the Hillary Clinton electors who are making this request have no intention of switching. This is nothing more than an attempt to create a constitutional crisis by luring away Trump electors. Christine Pelosi is as much of a loser as her mom. Hopefully the 2018 midterm elections will sweep more of the anti-American Democrat politicians out of office.

    1. metheoldsarge says:

      As long as the welfare checks and food stamps keep coming Nancy Pelosi and most of the other Democrats will have job security for life.

      1. Askjrsk says:

        Pelosi welfare checks are for life. Investigators would find illegal activities in her files, no doubt.

    2. Askjrsk says:

      We all question their lack of intelligence.

  • GATORLAND says:

    Desperate People do desperate STUPID stuff–similar to dogs chasing their tail,gives them something to do with no results. Were the voters intimidated by Russia to vote for Trump or their family would be kidnapped and swished away to Siberia

  • Webb says:

    Problem Number One: The open letter — led by Christine Pelosi, the daughter of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.)…Never trust a Pelosi!
    Problem Number Two: Trump Won…Its a BIG problem for Every Democrat/Progressive!!
    To help out The Democrats…Please Donate Safety Pins, Coloring Books and Give them Safe Spaces To Cry In!

    1. Ramon1710 . says:

      As Hilldog said when she thought she had successfully stolen the election, “Questioning election outcomes is ‘horrifying,’ ‘really troubling,’ and ‘not the way our democracy works.’”

      1. Webb says:

        Well for sure…this election was “Horrifying” for the Progressive / Democrats!
        My hope is that Progressives have to Wallow In That Pain for the next 8 years…
        After enduring 8 years of Obama…They Deserve The Pain!

  • N.McDaniel says:

    Despicable electors failing to live up to the rulers a nd obligations!!

  • rodstew says:

    …anyone notice that these idiots did NOT demand access to complete investigations and explanations of all of shillary and podesta’s emails outlining the corruption of these two individuals and the democratic party. They don’t want to investigate WHAT WAS FOUND, only who and how the damaging evidence was found. Pray, tell me why?

  • Terry T says:

    39 of these 40 electors are democrats – what is their leverage? If their demands are not met , what are they going to do – vote for Trump instead of Hillary? I don’t think they understand negotiations and the strategy of starting with a strong position, ( Oh right, they’re democrats.)

    1. kbfallon says:

      Their grasping at the last straw….and the realization that they no longer matter. All the plans of power and wealth …..has slipped away and they resort to basic trickery to try to fool the public once more. It’s all over now–except the crying that they have put off.

      1. Askjrsk says:

        Visions of a one world government, they the royal ruling class. We the peasants.

        1. kbfallon says:

          Well now…I guess we pulled the rug out from under them— now didn’t we? Good old Karma!

          1. Askjrsk says:

            We did. But democrats are getting out their prayer rugs hoping allah will help them as they attempt to discredit our election process, that Obamas homelands security hacked in Georgia elections.

    2. Askjrsk says:

      Pass it then read it Pelosi kind of intelligence.

  • Karll says:

    I wonder how much the klinton crime syndicate promised to pay these “electors”?
    Why do we need them?
    Kalifornia has 55 votes, Texas has so many, as does every state, so why do we need electors to muck things up?

    1. Ramon1710 . says:

      Birds fly. Fish swim. Pelosis screw things up.

  • cunning says:

    The recount showed their were thousands that were double counted, illegals and dead people on Hillary’s side, No cheating by the deplorable s and Trump. How can the Russkies hack the vote when the machines are not hackable? most are over 20 years old, all the ones where the seals were broke, were tampered votes for Hillary and she still lost? hope the CIA find the person that tampered with them, yea! right.

    1. Mike says:

      not true. quit making up this crap about voter fraud

      1. Askjrsk says:

        It’s not made up but actual facts that came out in the recount. Just when you think it’s common knowledge comes another low information comment

  • Ramon1710 . says:

    “We further require a briefing on all investigative findings, as these matters directly impact the core factors in our deliberations of whether Mr. Trump is fit to serve as President of the United States.”

    Lies don’t get much bigger. Any idiot who would consider putting the Clinton Crime Cartel back in the oval office should give the same discretion to Trump, with an automatic pass. But that’s why we elected Trump – to get rid of these NWO globalist weeds who breathe hypocrisy and narcissism.

  • kajohns55 says:

    Some Republicans support this. Makes me suspicious of a possibility of making Ryan president by default (deadlocked house).I saw this in another conservative site before nov. 8.

  • Ramon1710 . says:

    So let us examine Hilldog’s ties to Russia, granting them a 20% interest in US uranium. Then, let’s look at Hilldog’s backroom deals with China. Then let’s examine her running guns to terrorists in the mid-east.

  • William Merrell says:

    Anything with Pelosi’s name to it makes it between asinine and just plain STUPID (just like the name sake). I hope when all of this is done Trump doers something to end the rein of terror these asses have allowed. Thank God that this ilk will be out of the presidency and America can remove these socialists and the many issues they saddled us with over the last 8 years.

    1. Askjrsk says:

      Absolutely. Pelosi synonymous with stupid.

    You can poop in one hand and wish in the other and see which one comes true first. My X and I both military, both with Secret Clearances and they are not handed out like candy, at least not under Real Presidents who knows what O will do. These people would all and I mean every single one of them have to be researched exposing every single involvement with any organization, all their friends, witnesses to their honesty, integrity etc, all the jobs they have had on and on takes about six weeks to get cleared.

    See for yourselves here are the leaks that were not put out for all of you. Assange hacked Bush and nobody gave a rats but then comes Clinton and boy howdy share folks it is all here. Assange needs a Medal Of Honor he saved us from the “One World Order” and Plan 21 by the UN. These emails are Explosive that is why the US tried to have Assange arrested, they wouldn’t put these in our news and O still lying about them acting as if they are nothing. Folks they are something. Hopefully under a Trump administration, cleaned out DOJ, honest AG they will come out.

    1. James Maxwell says:

      Tiger I worked in within the Intelligence community in communications
      for over 23 years. I got my TS in 1964 when they investigated you
      back to your Date and Place of Birth. I seriously doube that any of
      these idiots we seen in the news or politics could ever get a real
      clearance or would have to information much above Confidential
      at best because they cannot keep their mouths close and have
      been guilty of leaking to the press information that would have
      most people arrested and put in jail for a long period of time.

      1. Tiger says:

        I am a Combat Support nurse since 1988 and my last investigation for my Secret Clearance was 2003 and trust me they put me through the wringer and you are right on Obama couldn’t get one due to the friends he has had throughout his life. We will see what they do about this situation O has never followed any rules.

      2. Askjrsk says:

        That’s absolutely for sure.

    2. Askjrsk says:

      FALSE NARRATIVES and FAKE NEWS are fed in the drive by NEWS reports and real NEWS is deflected consistently. Tucker Carlson questions the professor that wrote in the Huffington Post that a Trump presidency is a danger. Professor deflected and couldn’t answer. A professor would flunk a student with such an non answer to a question.

      1. Tiger says:

        They are all grabbing at straws and if your not hiding in a river filled with reeds they won’t do you any good.

        1. Askjrsk says:

          They are THE SWAMP

          1. Tiger says:

            And living in Florida a huge swamp filled with everything that can bite you, eat you and make you just plain miserable I understand swamp and yes they are.

          2. Askjrsk says:

            Found a lot of folks in Florida good Trump following. Swamps creatures ate a lot of the parasites already.

          3. Tiger says:

            Where I live surely good folk and not as dumb as people think they are. We have all kinds out there in the boonies I live in, CEO’s retired, millionaire ranchers, X military, poor and all types but one thing I know they all voted Trump.

            I have gatherings of children in my yard and their parents told them all about this election and what was at stake. You talk guns, water and Freedoms and these people listen. So the children told me they had elections in school and all but 3 voted for Trump. Now these children hunt, fish and carry guns along with know how to use them, they are well ahead of the average bear in survival.

            We don’t take kindly to idiots or Muslims.

          4. Askjrsk says:

            So glad you fo. Don’t you wish everybody did?

          5. Tiger says:

            I really do it is a great place to wake up in everyday. Wild, free, people clinging to God and guns. No Muslims welcome and Arabic men can’t buy guns here. CAIR took a gun shop owner to court over it and the judge said his call his shop.

            Why can’t they say that to a Gay couple suing a Strait Bakery because homosexuality is against the bakery’s religion. Oh wait. I think I just answered my own question. :[

          7. Tiger says:

            Yep and now the country has had enough and it is going to take much vigilance to keep us on the right track.

  • Irene Elizabeth Grooms says:

    This is to put doubt in the minds of our Electoral voter so they will go for that LIAR HILLARY CLINTON SHAME ON YOU DEMOCRATS FOR DOING THIS IT SHOWS US JUST HOW DAMN EVIL YOU ARE AND JUST HOW LOW YOU’LL GO.

  • Edgardo L. Perez-De Leon says:

    Yes, good idea to ask for what does not exist. Unless the clear evidence is presented with all details as demanded by Pelosi’s daughter and her followers, the Russian hacking is fake news.

    1. James Maxwell says:

      The only thing Pelosi’s daughter can bring up is more of the same
      old FAKE NEWS that they have fabricated up along with the media
      hacks that are in the pocket of the Democrat Socialist. They have
      no real fact, figures, names or any thing else to go with. It is only
      their rumor mill that they are relying on to cloud the water and
      sway the vote their way. These electors who claim a moral high
      road are dupes and turncoats who are not smart enough to pour
      piss out of a boot or make intelligent decisions.

      1. Edgardo L. Perez-De Leon says:

        What ever is having this 2 intelligence agencies will have to come out crystal clear. Until then, the Russian hacking is fake news from the most partisan elements of Obama’s administration. Only more fake news can be added in view that no evidence exists. The recent smoke screen on a typo by one of Podesta’s aids is clearly moronic as to the accusing the Russians. Any low class hacker can send an e-mail for physing your password if you change it in the hacker’s platform. Buying a physing platform is inexpensive. I do not know further details, but to my knowledge G-mail does not have a secured or special cloud for those that choose to use google for confidential communication. I have the strong feeling that that smoke screen is another fake news to make people believe that gmail can be save if you pay money. May be a marketing idea for a future service. Ha, ha!

      2. Askjrsk says:

        Absolutely. Get rids of all Pelosi the communists.

    2. Askjrsk says:

      Pelosi is walking image of dumb crap of a mother. She says everything that adds up to pass it then read it. She looks and sounds and is as stupid as mommy.

      1. Edgardo L. Perez-De Leon says:

        Nancy Pelosi is not necessarily stupid and her daughter either; but the request with the other 39 electors is cheap propaganda leading to create an impression that the issue brought by Obama’s propagansdists is serious.The 2 intelligence agencies involved never will reveal what they do not have and if had, will not reveal it neither.

        1. Askjrsk says:

          Excuse me any self appointed professional that engages her constituents to blindly ” pass it then read it”, is not only stupid but insulting to all those who have intelligence. Pelosi not stupid means she’s a manipulating dictator want to be that tries to opiate her constituents with lies FALSE NARRATIVES and FAKE NEWS and cannot be trusted. A thorough investigation of this family will uncover massive fraud and illegal activities.

          1. Harry J Schaubel says:

            And now she’s saying Dr. Ben Carson is a bad choice as HUD Director. He actually grew up in federal housing so I think he knows more abut it than Pelosi ever will!

          2. Askjrsk says:

            Nancy Pelosi is so ignorant that even if the esteemed surgeon, Dr. Ben Carson, raised in HUD housing, a self made man knew nothing about nothing, Dr. Ben Carson still would know infinitely more than the repulsive limousine liberal NANCY PELOSI!!!

  • Jose says:

    How many of these “electors” have the necessary security clearances to be able to be brief on anything dealing with national security? Here is more proof of no Russian involvement: President Barack Obama emphatically denounced the conspiracy theory saying Russians successfully tampered with the American voting process.

    1. Tiger says:

      Exactly and here are all the most damaging 100 leaks beginning with the first one from O who knew Hillary using her server wrongly.

      This is a great site. All here and in order and this site needs to go viral. Because Americans for the most part never knew.


      1. Askjrsk says:

        Absolutely right on. Hit the nail on the head.

        1. Tiger says:

          I would like to hammer some nails into a few heads.
