You know what’s scary? On the future strikes like this won’t even be possible because of automation. The closest you will get is strikes of people that maintain the automation.

Not like you can’t get a suppressor today, it’s just a pain in the ass. Assuming you live in a red state.

Wouldn’t happen. The house votes by state delegations, while the senate votes by individual votes. Only way that could happen is if the GOP lost the GA senate runoffs.

My one concern in the event of a contingent election, is that Liz Cheney is the SOLE member of the Wyoming house delegation. If she decided to abstain or vote for Biden, that would leave Trump with 25 votes, and Biden with either 23 or 24. If neither candidate gets 26 votes, the the house revotes again and again until someone finally hits 26.

Basically, Liz Cheney is the entire Wyoming house delegation, which is somewhat concerning. Would rather win before needing to go to contingent election.

It's definitely not a clear cut issue. https://reason.com/volokh/2017/08/26/is-accepting-a-pardon-an-admis/

In terms of Flynn's case, this section seems the most relevant:

Indeed, some pardons expressly state that they are based on the pardoner's decision that the defendant was actually innocent; and some legal rules expressly contemplate that—consider, for instance, the federal statute that provides for compensation of the unjustly convicted, which allows a plaintiff to prevail by showing (among other things) "that he has been pardoned upon the stated ground of innocence and unjust conviction." UPDATE: The Justice Department Standards for Consideration of Clemency Petitioners also expressly contemplate the possibility of "pardon on grounds of innocence or miscarriage of justice," though they unsurprisingly note that such applicants "bear a formidable burden of persuasion" (since the Justice Department's strong presumption is that people convicted in federal court were indeed justly convicted).

I'm no lawyer, but Trump very likely does have the ability to at least suspend Section 230 by using presidential emergency powers, on the grounds of national security.

And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.

The person you are thinking of is actually ANOTHER Venezuelan they got to testify. He is mentioned but not named in the lawsuit for security reasons.

ANTHONY MUGICA’S OWN COUSIN IS AN AFFIANT - PAGE 47-48

Indeed, Mr. Cobucci testified, through his sworn affidavit, that he born in Venezuela, is cousins with Antonio (‘Anthony’) Mugica, and he has personal knowledge of the fact that Anthony Mugica incorporated Smartmatic in the U.S. in 2000 with other family members in Venezuela listed as owners. He also has personal knowledge that Anthony Mugica manipulated Smartmatic to ensure the election for Chavez in the 2004 Referendum in Venezuela. He also testified, through his sworn affidavit, that Anthony Mugica received tens of millions of dollars from 2003- 2015 from the Venezuelan government to ensure Smartmatic technology would be implemented around the world, including in the U.S.
