Remember when Trump said, prior to the election, that he would refuse to concede to HRC if he lost?

He plunged America into uncharted territory when he repeatedly made that claim in the months preceding Election Day.

Just like Mitch McConnell "knowing" that he could stall the Merrick Garland hearings because a GOP victory was being manipulated by the Russians (and his fellow Republicans)...

...was Trump asserting his own prescience that the Russians were going to help him steal the election...to the extent that, if he lost, something would had to have gone awry with the collusion and quid pro quo?

Something about that statement has always tasted bitter in my mouth. With the daily uncovering of more and more Russian influence in the election, it seems apparent that Trump and his big mouth may have been alluding to the Big Fix and his potential incredulousness if the hack was not to be successful.

1. You hit the nail on the head

 

I was talking about this with a friend and wondered why no one was talking about this... With your permission, I will copy/paste your post.

Thank you

2. I agree

I believe also that when he made the statement, the election for him was assured. This rabbit hole goes far and deep, and when it is all said and done, I further believe we are witnessing the end of the Republican Party.

They can enter the Whig, Federalist, and Know Nothing Parties club.

3. Why did Trump say he wouldn't concede?

If Trump knew he would "win" the election, in contradiction to what the polls predicted,he'd be worried about whether the unlikely result would be accepted. A great way to silence questions was to manipulate editorial writers and Democrats to decry the questioning of election results prior to the election.

4. ? Did "Democrats" decry any questioning of the results, tho?

I don't recall that. Republicans certainly did.

Editorial writers come in all flavors, of course.

But in any case, I can't see that any questions were silenced at all.
