Outgoing President Donald Trump is considering imposing martial law so that he doesn’t have to leave office on January 20th. Trump had an Oval Office meeting last week that included attorney Sydney Powell and disgraced former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Powell and Flynn pushed the president to declare martial law and enable the military to hold new elections in the states he narrowly lost. Another option they discussed was forcibly seizing voting machines so they can be “investigated” and so that Trump can be revealed as having actually “won.” Trump is considering appointing Sydney Powell as special counsel to oversee a White House voter fraud investigation.
The meeting reportedly got quite heated, as career officials and slightly less crazy Trump officials were pushing back hard at the suggestions. Powell reportedly referred to them as “quitters,” which Trump probably loved to hear. Trump has less than thirty days to go now and it’s obvious the courts, electors, and most in Congress aren’t going to be complicit in his coup. The current president is getting desperate so he is listening to people like Powell and Flynn and weighing his military options. And most Republicans are sitting back and watching this unfold because they’re concerned about angering Trump and his radicalized voter base.
