A handful of presidential electors probably won’t be voting for Donald Trump on December 19th.

A Republican from Texas – a state Trump won – has made his feelings on the matter abundantly clear.

Now, 40 members of the Electoral College are demanding an intel briefing on Russian interference.

It should be noted that Trump currently sits at 306 electoral votes. If he loses 37 that will take him to 269, meaning he wouldn’t grab the required 270.

Forty members of the Electoral College on Tuesday signed a letter demanding an intelligence briefing on Russian interference in the election ahead of their Dec. 19 vote.

Ten electors originally signed the letter when it was published Monday, and 30 more have since added their names.

The open letter — led by Christine Pelosi, the daughter of House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) — urged Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to give a detailed briefing on President-elect Donald Trump‘s ties to Russia.

“We further require a briefing on all investigative findings, as these matters directly impact the core factors in our deliberations of whether Mr. Trump is fit to serve as President of the United States,” the letter read.

The Clinton campaign applauded the effort Monday, saying it had repeatedly warned about Russian interference aimed at swaying the election in Trump’s favor.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to cover all the bases.

However, there’s been zero hard evidence of any foul play.

At this point, it’s comical.

Should Russian interference in a U.S. election be looked in to by the authorities? Of course.

If something turns up, then we can talk.
