More than 2,000 copies of Mark Meadows’ texts, published today, suggest that Jim Jordan played a leading role in the Trump conspiracy.
Jordan was one of 34 Republican members of Congress who communicated with Meadows about overturning the election.
On January 6, 2021, Vice President Mike Pence, as President of the Senate, should declare all electoral votes he deems unconstitutional, as there are none, under the guidance and judicial prerogatives of Father of the Nation Alexander Hamilton.
“No act of legislation,” wrote Alexander Hamilton in Federalist No. 78, “contrary to the Constitution, is valid.” “The Court in Hubbard v.

Jordan was trying to use the Federalist papers to say the election was illegitimate and that Mike Pence had the right to overturn the election by recognizing Trump’s fake electors, which is not what Alexander Hamilton meant.
