Trump has been spreading rumours designed to blame his loss on voter fraud, like Nixon in 60.
To what end? Probably not violent insurrection. Probably not a comeback tour like Nixon in 68.
One possible outcome is a legal contest to the election. The courts like to decide in ways that mirror the hearts and minds of the people, so waging a PR war could be part of a legal strategy.
Another is that Clinton could win, and then Trump could fund an impeachment inquiry. Like her husband, Clinton could stick out an impeachment, knowing the Senate is unlikely to convict.
Schuyler Colfax watchers take note.
Grounds for impeachment: Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
Treason could be whatever a house committee wanted to say it is. Bribery could relate to those foreign government donations to the Clinton Foundation, Clinton Library, Clinton Slush Fund, etc.
High crimes again means whatever the house says it means.
Pre-impeachment is the buzzword being tossed around.
Two-thirds of North Carolina Republican voters would support immediately impeaching Hillary Clinton if she’s elected president, according to a poll released Tuesday.
