Could Does Not Equal Would

Liberal activist professor Larry Lessig says 20 Trump electors “could” flip their votes on Monday when the Electoral College meets.

“Could” is not “would.” And 20 is not 37, the number of Trump electors that would have to abandon him in the Electoral College.

Again, given the rabid campaign by the left, including Hollywood stars, college professors, and members of the Democratic Party, I will take the claims about Russia more seriously if the White House continues pushing them after the Electoral College meets.

Right now it all seems to be tied to the effort to pursuade the Electoral College, not to get to truth.
