From “Trump tries to subvert the election, inviting Michigan G.O.P. lawmakers to the White House,” posted earlier today in N.Y Times: “After failing repeatedly in court to overturn election results, President Trump is taking the extraordinary step of reaching out directly to Republican state legislators as he tries to subvert the Electoral College process, inviting Michigan lawmakers to meet with him at the White House on Friday.
“Mr. Trump contacted the Republican majority leader in the Michigan State Senate to issue the invitation, according to a person briefed on the invitation. It is not clear how many Michigan lawmakers will be making the trip to Washington, nor precisely what Mr. Trump plans to say to [them]. The president has made few public appearances since the election and his daily schedule often has no events on it, despite the worsening coronavirus pandemic.
“The White House invitation to Republican lawmakers in a battleground state is the latest — and the most brazen — salvo in a scattershot campaign-after-the-campaign waged by Mr. Trump and his allies to cast doubt on President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s decisive victory.”
This is absolute insanity.
It’s one thing for Trump to use his presidency to undermine our trust in elections, but to have the GOP coddling and enabling him is abhorrent.
They should wear this shame forever – this is beyond embarrassing. https://t.co/xT6xULQNtw

Wiki: Sidney Katherine Powell (b: 1955) is an American attorney who’s best known for successful appellate reversals, for representing General Michael Flynn in 2019 and President Donald Trump in 2020. In the weeks after the 2020 United States presidential election, she joined Trump’s legal team to challenge the results.
Incidentally: Serious hair dye never “melts” and runs down your cheek. Rudy Giuliani could have avoided the embarassment by simply having his hair colored by a professional.
