Ask the Supreme Court to overturn the 2016 Presidential election results

This year we faced an election that has been riddled with illegal activities and hate filled rhetoric unlike we have ever seen in America. All courtesy of Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Wikileaks and the Republican leadership. Through their own actions, or inaction, a foreign power successfully stole our Presidential Election. I won't list all the reasons Trump should be stripped of the Presidency because only the crimes matter in a court of law. All 17 of our intelligences have confirmed that Russia interfered to help Trump win. Admiral Michael Rogers, director of the National Security Agency and commander of the US Cyber Command, has stated that “This was not something that was done casually, this was not something that was done by chance. This was not a target that was selected purely arbitrarily. This was a conscious effort by a nation state to attempt to achieve a specific effect.” They succeeded.
Trump, his inner circle of campaign staff, a federal agency, and top Republicans like Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, knew about Russia's role in the Trump campaign. They looked the other way because their tactics were hurting Hillary Clintons campaign. American citizens, not the dictator of our adversary, are the ones who pick the President. The actions of those who knew, aided Russia in its campaign of disinformation and cyberattacks. By doing so, they effectively committed treason.
We tried to convince the electoral college to deny Trump the Presidency. If we failed, it may not be because electors want A President Trump. Trump and his campaign are leveraging the future careers of electors. Ajournalist, who I won't specifically name for their safety, was told by an elector, “that the Donald Trump campaign is putting pressure on Republican electors to vote for him based on . . . future political outcomes based on whether they vote for Donald Trump or not.” Trump supporters have sent death threats and for some, rape threats to electors. Electors are supposed to make their decision free of any political pressure or interference. It is their constitutional duty to deny a president who does not embody the traits and skills necessary to be President. What Trump and his team have done is a violation of federal law.
During this election, the republican leadership behaved as if the laws don't apply to them. Even going as far as to subtly threaten President Obama and the White House. This of course, was done by Mitch McConnell, whose wife was given a position in Trumps cabinet as Head of Transportation. A clear example of a pay for play, quid pro quo, agreement between Trump and McConnell. Majority speaker Paul Ryan looked the other way and released the illegally obtained documents stolen during the DNC cyberattacks to affect the down ballot races, and maintain a majority in congress.
Not even law enforcement remained politically neutral. Breaking from decades of protocol FBI Directory Comey, violated the hatch act. It was done strictly for political reasons. Experts even say that it cost Hillary the election. It swayed a lot of undecided voters during that last week and Hillary's campaign didn't have enough time to bounce back. Yet they refused to disclose information about Trumps ties to Vladimir Putin and Russian officials due to concerns that it would impact the election. The FBI released a false report saying they found nothing connecting Trump and Russia, which has been disproven many times over. They were willing to commit crimes if it benefitted Trump and hurt Hillary.
They also had an unprecedented voter suppression campaign that violated American citizens their right to vote. The Crosscheck program mostly targeted minorities in the key battleground states. They purged voters if they had the same first and last name, ignoring different middle names, home states and addresses. In some cases, a judge ordered they be restored, but over 7 million people were still on the list of individuals purged by the Crosscheck program.
Voter intimidation was a big part of their voter suppression campaign. There were inconsistencies in the exit polls in states Trump won, that were predicted for Hillary. Historically democratic areas experienced broken machines, ballots missing, and broken seals on ballot boxes, causing ballots to be thrown out, making it impossible to recount.
Trump is vulnerable to blackmail over his buisness deals in other countries and could put his business before what's best for America. His meetings and conversations that break decades of foreign policy have been with countries he has business in or wants to have hotels in. He includes his children in these meetings and decisions while they are running the family business. This is a direct violation of the nepotism law and will lead to an unprecedented number of conflicts of interest. For example, his nominee for Secretary of State Tillerson, a friend of Putin, along with Trump and Putin, stand to make five hundred billion dollars when sanctions against Russia are lifted.
This request from the American people is not because he is unqualified, dangerous and more corrupt and ignorant than any President in our 240 year old democracy. It is based on the facts presented by our intelligence agencies and federal investigations. Russia not only tried to win the election for Trump, they succeeded.
The Supreme Court has “judicial power to extend to all cases, in law and equity, arising under this Constitution, the laws of the United States, between citizens and foreign nations.” Only the Supreme Court has the ability to reverse Trump’s victory because it was won through illegal means. There is legal precedent for awarding the opponent the position they would have legally won. There has never been an issue more important than treason committed by our government officials. Hillary Clinton, ran a legitimate campaign and earned 4 million more legal votes than Donald Trump. She has more votes than any other President and represents the will of the people. You have the power to do what we, as citizens, have not had the power to do and name Hillary Clinton as the 45th President of the United States.
