Professor devises a way to have a new US election, and he’s foolish enough to share it

An assistant college professor at American University has devised a scheme to stop Donald Trump’s presidency.

“If we can confirm the intelligence report’s conclusion that Putin intervened with the goal of electing Trump, there must be a new election in the United States.

This sounds extraordinary, and of course, it is. But it can be done, and indeed must be done in order to uphold the fundamental democratic principle of free and fair elections, a principle undermined by the Russian efforts,” professor Chris Edelson wrote in an op-ed for The Hill.

But is there a clause in the Constitution that allows for such drastic measures? No.

And that’s when Edelson’s idea got more far-fetched.

First, he suggested that an independent counsel, like the 9/11 commission, be established to explore Russian interference in the election and determine if it helped Trump win.

“If it is determined that Russian efforts did indeed put Trump over the top in an incredibly close election, then the next step would be to pass a constitutional amendment requiring a one-time special election to be held as soon as possible,” Edelson wrote.

And how does the Amendment get ratified?

“It is possible with the support of a two-thirds majority in each chamber of Congress, followed with ratification by three-fourths of state legislatures,” he explained.

He didn’t mention that Republicans are in control of Congress and the majority of state legislatures the chances of that amendment being ratified are beyond slim.

The professor got schooled on social media.
