It’s great to see Democrats get called out for their hypocrisy on the Electoral College. But you certainly don’t expect to see such a thing on CNN.
Rep. Jim Himes was recently grilled over the subject.
‘How is This Not a Partisan Issue?’: CNN Host Grills Dem Rep For Asking Electoral College to Block Trump
During an appearance on CNN this morning, Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) was pressed by host Kate Bolduan to justify his recent plea to the Electoral College to shun President-elect Donald Trump.
Himes took to Twitter on Sunday to beg electors not to vote for Trump on the 19th when they convene. He told New Day yesterday that the tipping point for him regarding Trump was his criticism of the intelligence community over its assessments on Russian hacking.
Speaking to Bolduan, Himes said he felt he wasn’t asking the Electoral College to “overturn the will of the people,” invoking Alexander Hamilton and stating that this “is not a partisan thing.” He also pointed out all of the issues he has with Trump taking office, such as conflicts of interest with Trump’s businesses.

Of course, all of this nonsense over the Electoral College will be over today.
They’re meeting this afternoon to cast their votes.
