How to stop Donald Trump from being President.
Point 1. Nobody either is or can be “President elect” until December 19, 2016, at the earliest. The reason is that our Constitution provides that the President and Vice-President are intended to be elected by “The Electoral College”.
“The Electoral College” voters will meet to cast their votes on December 19, 2016, separately, in each of the 50 States. The law does not provide for another time or place for them to do this.
What needs to happen to get this rolling is that those petitioning for a “recount” in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, need to file suit in Federal Court to have the “electors” in those States NOT cast their votes until the “recount” (and any questions of electronic voter “hacking”) gets resolved. VERY IMPORTANT: AN INJUNCTION WILL BE NEEDED TO DO THIS.
This will NOT give you Hillary Clinton as President, but it WILL throw the choice to the U.S. House, as specified in the 12th Amendment (and, more to the point, the 20th Amendment).
At this point, the House will choose two (2) distinct lists: one list for President and one list for Vice-President. Each list will have up to three names, taken from those for whom votes are actually cast by those Electors who voted on December 19, 2016.
Next, the House will be faced with a choice, which, if properly managed by the House leadership, could result in a clear decision for Vice-President, but NO CLEAR DECISION IN FAVOR OF TRUMP. The reason for this might include all those who Trump has offended in the Republican Party refusing to elect him, outright, to the Presidency.
Once the House blocks Trump in this way, the process of choosing the President moves to the Senate, where this same process, outlined above, should be a lot easier to replicate.
Having, under this scenario, blocked Trump in the Electoral College, and then in both the House and the Senate, the Constitution states that the Vice-President will serve as President, presumably, up to and including the end of the 4 year term. This will happen if the issue of who is elected President is not resolved by March 4, 2017, according to the Constitution (Amendment 12).
So, Jill, this nothing you do will put either you or Hillary in the White House, but you MAY JUST BE ABLE TO BLOCK DONALD TRUMP, and that will have to do for now.
