A retired federal choose appointed by previous President George H.W. Bush warned in an viewpoint piece released by CNN on Wednesday that Republicans are “already a lengthy way toward recapturing the White Dwelling in 2024, regardless of whether Trump or one more Republican prospect wins the election or not.”
In his essay, J. Michael Luttig broke down what he named the “Republican blueprint” to steal the 2024 election ― the cornerstone of which, he said, was the Supreme Court’s embrace of the “independent state legislature” doctrine.
The 2020 election fraud lies peddled by previous President Donald Trump and his allies are just “the shiny object that Republicans have tauntingly and disingenuously dangled just before the American community for nearly a 12 months and a 50 percent now to distract interest from their far far more bold goal,” wrote Luttig.
Their real objective, said Luttig, was “to execute efficiently in 2024 the really very same strategy they unsuccessful in executing in 2020 and to overturn the 2024 election if Trump or his anointed successor loses once again in the upcoming quadrennial contest.”
“The last presidential election was a dry run for the future,” cautioned Luttig, who in January 2021 advised then-Vice President Mike Pence versus helping Trump in delaying President Joe Biden’s win.
