Don Jr. texted Mark Meadows on how to cancel the election BEFORE it was called


Donald Trump Jr. has texted White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows sharing ideas on how to keep President Donald Trump in power even before the 2020 election is called.

CNN reported Friday that two days after the 2020 election — and two days before the networks called the race for President Joe Biden — Trump Jr. laid out a plan similar to what was ultimately attempted to change the course of elections in the run-up to the January 6 Capitol attack.

“It’s very simple,” Trump Jr. told Meadows Nov. 5. “We have several paths. We control them all.

Donald Trump Jr. has texted White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows sharing ideas on how to keep President Donald Trump in power even before the 2020 election is called.

“We have operational control of the full leverage,” he also says. ‘Moral High Ground POTUS must start 2nd term now.’

Trump Jr. told Meadows they may sue and seek recounts in certain swing states, to prevent them from certifying their results.

He said Republican legislatures could “step in” and introduce fake “Trump voters.”

“Republicans control Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, etc., we get Trump voters,” Trump Jr wrote.

And if those ways don’t work, Trump’s allies could push Congress to reinstate the Republican as president in the Jan. 6 joint session where Electoral College votes are counted.

“Republicans control 28 states, Democrats 22 states,” Trump Jr. wrote, referring to what happens when there is a tie in the Electoral College, with every state delegation in the House voting. “Once again Trump wins,” the former first son added.

“Either we have a vote that WE control and WE win, OR it goes back to Congress on January 6, 2021,” Trump Jr.

Trump Jr.’s attorney, Alan S. Futerfas, disputed whether the messages were written by him.

“After the election, Don received many messages from supporters and others. Given the date, this message probably came from someone else and was forwarded,” Futerfas said.

What Trump Jr. launched was attempted over the following weeks.

Trump’s legal team, led by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, has filed more than 60 unsuccessful lawsuits challenging the count, based on the then president’s unsubstantiated voter fraud allegations.

The lawsuits weren’t enough to stop voters from coming together on Dec. 14 to decide Biden as the Electoral College winner.

On the same day, however, “alternative” voters gathered in swing state capitals and voted for Trump.

Trump and his allies then tried to pressure Vice President Mike Pence to choose from the voter rolls when he chaired the joint session of Congress to count the Electoral College votes on Jan. 6.

Pence rightly refused, and so the election was not returned to state legislatures or given to Congress to decide.

Trump Jr. also told Meadows he should ‘Fire Wray; Fire Fauci,” in reference to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert.

Both men remain at their posts today.

Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows gave texts to the House select committee on January 6 before deciding he would not cooperate. In December, the House voted to hold him in contempt, but the Justice Department has yet to act on that charge.

The first son suggested that Wray be replaced by former acting director of national intelligence Ric Grenell, a Trump ally who pushed the voter fraud allegations.

He also said Attorney General Bill Barr should appoint a special counsel to investigate the “HardDrivefromHell Biden crime family,” a reference to Hunter Biden’s laptop.

Barr left the administration in December before appointing a special counsel to investigate the new president and his family.

The texts were part of a installment shared by Meadows with the House Select Committee on Jan. 6 and shared with CNN.

Meadows, a former House member from North Carolina, initially said he would play ball with the Democratic-led committee, but later changed his mind.

The House voted in December to scorn Meadows, but the Justice Department has yet to act on that accusation.
