If you listen carefully to Sidney Powell, who I will concede I think is at least in part a bit batshit, there was a plan. There was a Supreme Court Justice who was going to hear the goofy claims out. (I think this is what she's referencing. It sounds like a probable longshot.) This is how close we came, and only because Speaker Pelosi reconvened as soon as she did we were spared what some might think of as a "long national nightmare". Because Trump lost these contested states, but supposedly serious people were all in on handing an election to this guy. Yep, this guy. Sigh, this guy.
This new interview by Powell is interesting. It suggests that the purpose of the insurrection was to DELAY the electoral college certification to give Alito time to intervene on this legal challenge. But, Powell says they didn’t anticipate Pelosi reconvening Congress that day. pic.twitter.com/HnmpcOci3Q— Ron Filipkowski (@RonFilipkowski) September 26, 2021
