As of this writing, Donald Trump appears destined to become our nation’s next President. There is a very slim chance that Hillarystein may take away enough electoral votes from Trump, however, to deny him the needed 270. And in that case, the election goes to the House, where a Republican majority will confirm Trump’s victory. Of course they will. But maybe not.
From the National Constitution Center’s 12/1/16 online edition of “Constitution Daily” comes this intriguing quote:
“Concurrently, the Green Party is leading a recount effort in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. If those efforts were to result in no presidential candidate having 270 electoral votes, the presidential election goes to the House of Representatives – where the three top presidential Electoral College vote-getters are in the run-off, or contingent, election.
“That means if there is one ‘protest’ electoral vote for a third candidate, such as Mitt Romney, John McCain, Condoleezza Rice or John Kasich, as suggested by Baca and Guerra [two potential faithless, so-called ‘Hamilton’ electors] …. the third candidate with the most Electoral College votes joins Trump and Clinton on the House ballot.
“Few people remember today that in the 1825 House contingent election where John Quincy Adams defeated Andrew Jackson that William Crawford was the third candidate in that House election and he won the support of four states – even though Crawford had suffered a stroke before the election.”
Now there’s a thought to keep you up at night. How many of the Never-Trumpers and RINOs, in unholy alliance with Democrats, are aware of their power to create the mother of all Constitutional crises in just a few weeks. I’ve said it before and at the risk of becoming a pain in the butt, I’ll say it again: This one is not in the bag. This one ain’t over until we see whose hand is on the Bible on January 20, 2017.
