The text messages sent to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on January 6 -- from the likes of Donald Trump Jr. and a bevy of Fox News personalities -- are, without a doubt, revealing. They suggest that -- despite attempts by these people to downplay the events of that day -- they were fully aware of just how bad this was for the country and then-President Donald Trump. But it's actually a text sent from a number CNN has reported is associated with and registered to former Trump Energy Secretary Rick Perry -- on November 4 -- that truly speaks to the lengths many within the Republican party were willing to go to keep Joe Biden from being elected.
"Here's an aggressive strategy: Why can t [sic] the states of GA NC PENN and other R controlled state houses declare this is BS (where conflicts and election not called that night) and just send their own electors to vote and have it go to the SCOTUS." Just to be totally clear, here is what was being proposed the day after the election: In any state that had not yet been called for Biden or Trump and/or any state where there were "conflicts" where Republicans controlled the state legislature, they should simply declare the election moot and send their own preferred electors instead.
