Obama had secret plan to validate Clinton victory if Trump didn't accept it: report
Holey shite if true. Some republicans involved also but only two named. This ought to get good.

quote:

Former President Obama had a plan to validate the 2016 election in the event that then-candidate Donald Trump lost and challenged the results.

Obama administration officials told New York magazine that a bipartisan plan was in place just in time for the election to certify the results and reveal the intelligence community’s claims that Russian interference supported Trump’s candidacy.


Such a measure was devised after Trump said the election was “rigged” and joked on the campaign trail that he wouldn’t accept the election results if he lost.

“I will totally accept the result of this great and historic presidential election,” he said. “If I win.”

The plan to validate the election involved former secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice. Former presidents and congressional Republicans also participated in the plan, the outlet reported.

Ben Rhodes, a former top aide of Obama, told the magazine that the administration feared Trump wouldn’t accept the election result had Hillary Clinton won.

“It wasn’t a hypothetical,” he said. “Trump was already saying it on the campaign trail.”

Jen Psaki, communications director for Obama, minimized the plan’s significance, saying it just one of a number of “red-teaming” discussions about the potential fallout following the 2016 election, including pro-Trump protests and political division.

“For them, just having him say the election was legitimate was not going to be enough,” she said.

“I don’t think there is any indication to suggest that if that’s where things headed, [Trump] would accept it,” Psaki added. “He’s laying the groundwork for delegitimizing the process now — questioning our institutions, attacking their leadership. This is all fodder for his supporters to work with in the event that things go down a dark path for him.”

So is Psaki. The Dems want to talk about a devil's triangle about Kavanaugh - the real devil's triangle was Rhodes, Harf and Psaki.

But since he won, the plan morphed into one to undermine his victory.

Actually makes sense.

You gotta give it to the crazy dems in this case....they were committed to this Russia hoax. It was designed to rid them of Trump and throw shade to a Clinton presidency for her actions.

That sounds right, and why they held the Russian interference, which was some minor face book adds, so they could use it to defame Trump from contesting the results and use it to tear him down financially and possible criminally in the aftermath. They wanted to destroy him....

Yep. Yesterday I had her on my Negro plantation with Kayne but she's gone now. I'll replace her with Candice Owens. Someone warned me about Rice.

With this being revealed, it does make me wonder why just now many neocons have suddenly jumped on the Trump choo-choo. Article didn't say who the "other" republicans were.

Classic projection. Clinton and the Dems have never accepted the results of the 2016 - because they lost.

Of course they would have accepted them if they won.

Worse than treason.

Which is exactly what the Dems have done since he won.

Hopefully the next time Harf is on Fox someone gets a spine and asks her what her role was.
Got to wonder if Graham is in on it as well. He sure is woke as hell now.

I'm sure they won't. The old timers on there have had plenty of opportunity to put her in the crosshairs with many of their discussions. Exactly why I'm starting to be disappointed with FOX. Journalistic integrity of a colleague can burn in hell as far as I'm concerned.
