I saw this:
Leaked emails reveal Trump-appointed DOJ official pushed department to intervene in Georgia electionhttps://t.co/NF354hoxp8— Raw Story (@RawStory) August 3, 2021
"The Department of Justice is investigating various irregularities in the 2020 election for President of the United States," Clark's draft letter said. "The Department will update you as we are able on investigatory progress, but at this time we have identified significant concerns that may have impacted the outcome of the election in multiple States, including the State of Georgia."Clark's request to send the letter was ultimately denied by then-acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and acting deputy attorney general Richard Donoghue.
So, if the Governor didn't call a special session, the Georgia Legislature had double super secret probation powers to call one for itself in order to save the Presidential election for....the GOP candidate? Yeah, sure; nobody's ever heard of that before, but what the heck, right?
This letter is crazy on so many levels. But the argument that the *federal* Constitution gives state legislatures the “implied” power to call themselves into session—when their state constitution doesn’t—is just about the most ridiculous conception of “federalism” I’ve ever seen. https://t.co/dwRE6eKPd3— Steve Vladeck (@steve_vladeck) August 3, 2021
It's always worse than you thought.
