    Perhaps Kellyanne Conway left the WH staff as lead counsel because the WH lacked understanding of the law?
    She was a “counselor”/“senior counselor” to the president. They might sound like it, but those roles are not legal-counsel roles, although she does have a JD. And regardless, I would not want to try to defend in court the proposition that she had a demonstrated grasp of the law that was superior to those around her in this White House.

    Copy; thanks! Thought maybe she was back in the limelight for some reason I'd missed.

    Isn’t this exactly what state certification means? Validating the votes for each candidate? So as ridiculous as this sounds, Biden can say “yup, done that.”

    I know no one wants this to turn into even more of a poo throwing contest, but I wonder what it would be like if Trump had to play defense to someone doing the same thing to him. “Who is more likely to cheat, the career civil servant who has won and lost many elections, or the unexpected outsider who has a core identify of never losing, who has said he would win at all costs, who has caused polling anomalies in the last two elections that were not present in the mid-terms, and whose party controls most state apparatuses- where is the proof that votes for him aren’t fraudulent?” Note that I don’t believe this nor do I think it would be a good strategy for Dems, just pointing out that Trump would have no defense if his line of attack was turned against him.

    Seriously. Some weapons-grade delusion at work here.
    Can you imagine if the results had been flipped? Those almost 8M votes would not only all be totally legit, but the final number would be carved into the White House cornerstone.

    I think the Lincoln Project could have a field day with this but as you correctly noted, they like everyone else on that side is taking the high road and largely moving on.

    It does seem that any response just lends credence to the insanity.

    There’s an interesting profile on the GA Sec of State in AJC, his experience the last few weeks and how few friends he suddenly has in his conservative Christian circles. He was an early supporter of Trump. Now he’s labeled an “enemy of the people” and the vulgar death threats have not surprisingly followed. He still says his team lost and that he wanted Trump to win. There’s a magnanimity there (or refusal to make his true feelings known) that I wouldn’t be able to muster in similar circumstances. Worth a read.

    With “friends” like those who needs enemies?

    I can't even imagine how much he must hate Trump right now. To be accused of incompitence and fraud by the people you were backing is just the worst betrayal... sigh.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Sidney Powell

    This explains it all:

    Powell became known as a young woman in a hurry. In 1979, after she had completed a bachelor’s degree at the University of North Carolina in just 21 months and swiftly passed through UNC’s law school, a local newspaper illustrated a story on her with a cartoon of Powell racing across the graduation day stage in a high-speed blur, her cap trailing behind.

    PA Supreme Court throwing a shutout against the GOP and Trump campaign. This evening they ruled against the latest lawsuit in which the GOP tried to argue that the republican-led state legislature that passed the new voter law in 2019 did so illegally and therefore all mail-in votes should be invalidated. Problem is, they only had six months to raise an objection (against their own legislation) and challenge its constitutionality. Also seems the judges told the GOP lawyers effectively to go home and not to come back.

    Also, I keep learning new words from these opinions. Tonight’s word is cavil. As in “It is beyond cavil that Petitioners failed to act with due diligence in presenting the instant claim.”
