    You do realize the left was crying fowl before Trump set foot into the White House, stating it was an illegitimate election and spent the next 4 years doing EVERYTHING in their power to get him removed.

    Who was the whiny little female dog again for the last 4 years?

    It's his business selling access. You thought it was going to stop just because he's the presumed president elect? Where's Hunter by the way? Just guessing he's doing pretty well too.

    Hilary Clinton called Trump and Conceded after the networks called the extremely close election in favor of Trump in 2016. In 2000 there was only one State in question and the final count was within 540:votes. A recount was definitely called for in that instance. Even after the SCOTUS ruled 5-4 along political lines to prevent the recount, Gore accepted the decision and conceded to Bush. I don’t see anything like this here. The tables were turned almost exactly here in 2020. It appears that Biden has increased the popular vote to 5-6 million and won almost identical narrow victories in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and it appears that he will win similar narrow victories in Arizona and Georgia. Just as in 2016, it appears that Biden will win the EC by an identical count of 305-133. That said, Trumps whining and dooshebaggery are totally unprecedented in US History. No he is threatening to not invite Biden to the White House or attend the Inauguration ceremony.

    Still Trump. Ignorant of you to ask.

    The reports mean nothing. They have the same credibility as the words of the sitting president.

    Imagine Biden demanding the same thing when he was losing his lead in Florida and Texas.
    "STOP THE VOTE! I WON"

    What a pathetic little man Trump is.

    For the record. I think Biden talking to foreign leaders is wrong, and should be looked into

    BUT, lets all remember that Trump set the president and since nothing came of his team talking to them, nothing will happen to Biden. Wrong as that might be, he will not be punished in any way for it

    1. It's not a crime to lie to the VP elect.
    2. Biden's activities are not under discussion.
    3. My personal guess (only that) is that Flynn's contact was authorized by Trump and Pence was not on the need-to-know list.
    4. The larger point is that all incoming administrations have these contacts.

    We agree, but it’s not the same as Flynn who was not elected or even appointed to anything at that point. Not to mention apparently lying to pence about it.

    The people making contacts on Biden's behalf were not elected and haven't been appointed yet either.

    There is no more evidence of fraud in 2020 than there was in 2016.

    Then it’s comparable. Greenwald of course leaves out what made flynns call raise eyebrows. But it’s agenda journalism so it’s not surprising

    Because if Trump wasn’t convicted of anything for the same conduct then there is clear precedent that this is a nothing burger.

    OK, so the OP is a piece of Russian propoganda.

    As usual, the OP was followed by a chorus of Trumpster all agreeing with it and burnishing their resentment with it.

    The author of the RT piece doesn’t know what to Logan Act is.

    Obviously, neither do the whining Trumpsters.

    The Logan Act bans Federal employees from doing work on behalf of a candidate or political party on the taxpayers dime,

    Biden’s conversations with leaders of other nations don’t violate the Logan Act. Biden is not, and has never been, a Federal employee.

    Moreover, there s no indication that anyone in the Biden campaign is trying to set up a secret back channel between the future White House and Russian Intelligence, which was going on just a little lest than four years ago.

    That didn't nor doesn't lessen the calls from the left and Biden HIMSELF urging it in during the infamous WH meeting. Go back in the history here and all the calls for Logan Act violations, how DARE Trump interfere with the Obama administration foreign policy trying to undermine it!!!!!!
    From Egoboy
    "- Flynn violated the Logan Act by asking the Russians not to respond to the Obama sanctions before taking office."

    What goes around comes around

    The one I just asked you about in the thread you were claiming the incoming Trump administration violated, the one I quoted you about in the above, why are you trying to play dumb now?

    Totally, Dude.

    Biden is most likely looking at a Federal Death Penalty Case.

    Hopefully, Kamala is prepared to hit the ground running.

    Godspeed.:salute:

    Yeah, what went around was zero legal consequences. I suspect the same will go around this time.

    Not sure when I posted that, but it's as true today as whenever I did...

    Some posts just age better than others...
