Trump has done an incredible job of sabotaging not only himself but his entire party.

Again, my only worry is that he is going to try to pull off something outrageous, unheard-of and so over the top that are momentarily frozen and unable to react to it until the damage has already been done and the voter counts invalidated.

Because that is looking to be his only chance of not losing.

GOP senators pondering action if Trump loses and refuses to step down, Carl Bernstein says (New York Daily News via MSN)

Several “terribly concerned” Republican senators are starting to plan how they’ll crack down on President Trump if he loses the election but refuses to accept defeat, journalist Carl Bernstein says.

“They are very, very worried about it,” the famed Watergate journalist told CNN’s Ana Cabrera on Sunday.

He said as many as 10 senators are “trying to come together” to “make a plan that if the president provokes a constitutional crisis, which they believe he will, they will try to find a way to let law and order and the Constitution prevail.”

The GOP senators are “talking with each other about how to restrain what they regard as an out-of-control, almost madman” who is “determined to do anything to hold on to office regardless of its legality, regardless of how far it crosses lines that are unthinkable in terms of authoritarianism,” Bernstein said.
