Well, we live in a Republic, not a democracy, so...

Please enlighten us:  what is the distinct feature of a republic, when compared to a democracy, which prescribes that an intelligence agency, at political odds with another intelligence agency, attempts to invalidate the results of an election?

Like I said, the EC. Of course there was not set of limitations placed upon what would sway the EC's vote, whether it was the media, popular opinion or the opinion of a government agency. If the EC wanted to vote Hillary in, they can. Are not Republics grand? :)

Many of the electors are.  But they'll still all vote for Trump.

I'm going to attempt to clarify this for you with an allegory:

 

I asked you, "When was 13th Amendment was ratified, and who proclaimed it's adoption?"

 

You answered "The letter 9"

The CIA, or at least some of it's current and/or former operatives, are suggesting that the election should be decertified.  They are doing this in opposition to the FBI, who actually has the apparatus to investigate cyber crime, while they do not.

 

None of this has anything to do with the Electoral College, unless of course you believe that our intelligence agencies have legitimate standing to tamper with our election process.

 

That's what needed clarification.

Harry Reid tells us the Trump campaign ‘was in on’ Russia’s election hacking http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/harry-reid-russia-donald-trump_us_584f0df0e4b0e05aded537cd?6e134pod9rxktvs4i 

 

 

 

Hey HuffPo..........Might it merit a mention in this story that Reid has publicly and proudly lied about prior Republican presidential B-) candidates?

 

 

 

 

Oct 2016: These emails are a boring nothingburger which we shall ignore.

 

Dec 2016: These emails are the reason we lost, we need a re-vote!

“Let him prove that he has paid taxes, because he hasn’t,” Reid said on the Senate floor without any evidence to back his accusations.

When asked about his comments by CNN’s Dana Bash, Reid never rejected the notion his words were “McCarthyite” in nature. He admitted no wrongdoing.

“Well, they can call it whatever they want,” Reid said. “Romney didn’t win, did he?”

Reid’s approach of the ends justifying the means is sure to upset many and is likely to further propel Reid’s reputation of being a dirty politician.

If the EC listens to the CIA then it will matter and it will all be perfectly legal and well in bounds with our Republic to follow the democratic will and support the person that got the most votes anyway

Do you think it is the legitimate roll of the CIA to execute a coup?

The election has never been about getting the most overall votes.  And the Russians didn't force people to vote a certain way, much less change votes.

If they convince EC how to vote its a coup? 

 

What FBI did was wrong, very wrong, but not sure I'd call it a coup

I know, its about winning the vote of the EC. Which Hillary could still do, actually. All legal
