The People Vs. The Electoral College 2017

This petition had 167 supporters

November 8th, 2016 - Donald J. Trump won the presidency with 306 electoral votes compared to Democratic rival Hillary R. Clinton. However, since then, Hillary R. Clinton has nearly 2.7 Million more votes than Donald J. Trump. It is clear she won the popular vote and not him! Our election process is rigged, and corrupt. The people are demanding change!

December 19th, 2016 - Confirmed by multiple news agencies, the Electoral College made Donald J. Trump's presidential victory a success. Regardless of the fact multiple electors were sent letter urging them to vote against Trump. Some electors have also claimed to have even received death threats. That is in the event they chose him, and not someone else. Which they have. The Electoral College was built in to our Democracy by Alexander Hamilton. In the 68th article of the Federalist Papers (a collection of papers which had aimed at prompting the ratification of the US Constitution) described the Electoral College as: 

"The process of election affords a moral certainty, that the office of president may never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree, endowed with the requisite qualifications."

Hamilton's conception of the electoral college is clear, and written that way for a reason. The rise of Donald J. Trump, is a perfect example of the statement above.

Russian Involvement Confirmed in Hacking:

On December 16th, 2016 - The Federal Bureau of Investigation confirmed initial statements, made by the Central Intelligence Agency, in an recent assessment. An assessment which they later stated with "high confidence" that Russia hacked into the 2016 Election. A news article by The Washington Post - FBI in agreement with CIA that Russia aimed to help Trump win White House states that:

"F.B.I. Director James B. Comey and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. are in agreement with a C.I.A. assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election in part to help Donald Trump win the White House, officials disclosed Friday, as President Obama issued a public warning to Moscow that it could face retaliation."

The hacks perpetrated by Russia were targeted at Hillary R. Clinton, her campaign chairman John Podesta, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wassermann Schultz. The emails were released on Wiki Leaks. Thus causing Schultz to resign, and Clinton to loose the presidency. Back in July, caught on video, and uploaded to YouTube, the president-elect can be heard calling on Russia to Hack Hillary's 33,000 emails.

The Reason for this Petition:

The People of the United States are coming together to file a lawsuit against the electoral college, for not upholding it's constitutional duty, and officially electing Trump. Even though, they knew that the FBI, and CIA, confirmed Russia's involvement in the hacking into our election. The people suspect Donald J. Trump has colluded with a foreign power to rig, compromise, and gerrymander his way into office. A Bipartisan effort needs to be met, in order to fully and properly investigate this incident. Trump is a major threat to this nation, our integrity, and national security. The fact that he skips mandatory intelligence briefings on a regular intended to keep him updated, is also problem. Those intelligence briefings are there so the president, as commander in chief can effectively control and defend our nation. Therefor this petition is set to bring further attention to this matter.
