Hillary Clinton was working with the Electoral College to stop Donald Trump.

This is a big deal, folks!

Prosecution may be in order!

From Daily Mail:

Senior advisors to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign kept in touch by phone and email with a driver of the ill-fated, last-ditch effort to dump Donald Trump at the electoral college.

The advisors kept tabs on Colorado elector Micheal Baca, who was helping try to persuade Republican members of the Electoral College to vote against Trump. The effort ultimately flamed out, although a handful of Clinton electors ultimately ended up voting for other people.

Baca himself is facing prosecution for his decision to cast his vote for Ohio Republican Governor John Kasich rather than Clinton, notwithstanding a state law directing him to back Clinton and the oath he swore.

Some members of the group Hamilton Electors had spoken of trying to engineer a victory for Kasich as an alternative to Trump, arguing that Trump was unfit for office despite his winning 306 electoral votes. Clinton beat Trump in the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes.

In one email following up to a call with Clinton advisor Jake Sullivan, Baca apologized for being overly urgent, in one of multiple internal emails obtained by Politico.

‘Not at all! We all share a sense of urgency,’ Sullivan wrote Baca. ‘Look forward to being in touch.’

Efforts to find a way to deny Trump his victory picked up after new reports about Russian hacking meant to boost Trump on December 12. Clinton campaign ahcirman John Podesta, the victim of a hack that put thousands of Clinton-related emails into the public domain, helped goad things on with a statement that said, ‘Electors have a solemn responsibility under the Constitution and we support their efforts to have their questions addressed.’

Baca and Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri exchanged text messages that indicated Palmieri’s interest in being informed about the effort.

Politico didn’t reveal how it gained access to the emails, texts, and call logs.
