Insane Trump Claim: Electors Will Be Committing Crime

Mediaite reports:

The Electoral College is scheduled to cast their votes Monday, in state-by-state meetings across the country, and President Donald Trump is very unhappy about it, tweeting renewed attacks on the election he lost to President-elect Joe Biden, but this time with a new twist: declaring that certifying the votes will be “committing a severely punishable crime.”

It’s one of multiple misrepresentations, misstatements, and just flat-out lies he fits into a three-tweet thread. Unsurprisingly, Twitter quickly labeled all of these tweets with “This claim about election fraud is disputed.” Unfortunately for Trump, tweeted complaints have absolutely no legal effect.
