In response to the Tuesday story from The New York Times reporting that Donald Trump campaign aides had repeated contacts with Russian intelligence, liberal pundit Michael Moore called on the courts to rule the 2016 election invalid and declare the popular vote winner — Hillary Clinton — President of the United States.
“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what was going on: TRUMP COLLUDING WITH THE RUSSIANS TO THROW THE ELECTION TO HIM,” Moore wrote in all-caps on his Facebook.
Impeachment wouldn’t do the trick, Moore continued. “Somehow, our judicial system has to find a way to make restitution to this country. [Vice President Mike Pence] can’t be president as he, too, was elected under this same fraud.”
“The court has to rule either that the president is the winner of the popular vote OR the election must be held over,” he concluded. “The Republicans — the beneficiaries of this treason — cannot be allowed to hold on to the power by default. If it turns out there’s a traitor in the White House, the judicial branch must find a fair, peaceful way to un-do and then re-do the election of 2016.”
