Meanwhile the Electoral College has met and cast their votes for Biden for president. Some states went so far as to meet in secret to avoid potential disruption or violence from Trump supporters. Also, Trump supporters are apparently now going to make up their own electoral college that will declare Trump the winner and will ask Congress to accept that instead of the actual, legitimate Electoral College vote. Which looks exactly like an attempted coup. If they're going this far I'm getting even more concerned about the potential that his followers will engage in a campaign of violence on or after Inauguration Day.
