MOTION OF PETITIONERS FOR APPOINTMENT OF SPECIAL MASTER

RELIEF SOUGHT:
Now come the Petitioners in the above-entitled matter and respectfully move this

Honorable Court to appoint a Special Master with the immunities, security classifications, subpoena powers, staffing and funding reasonably necessary to perform the following tasks:

1.) This Court has jurisdiction to appoint a Special Master:
a) “The Supreme Court and all courts established by Act of Congress may issue all writs necessary or appropriate in aid of their respective jurisdictions and agreeable to the usages and principles of law.” 28 U.S.C.A. § 1651(a);
b) The writ of mandamus is an extraordinary writ. Miller v. French, 530 U.S. 327, 339, 120 S.Ct. 2246, 2254, 147 L.Ed.2d (2000), thus the “form of pleadings and motions prescribed by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure is followed, Supreme Court Rule 17.1 and 17.2; and therefore F.R.Civ.P. 53.1 allows this Court to appoint a Special Master; and,
c) “In designating a Master, the Court customarily confers ‘authority to fix the time and conditions for the filing of additional pleadings and to direct subsequent

Page -1-

Page 1

proceedings,’ as well as ‘authority to summon witnesses, issue subpoenas, and take such evidence as may be necessary and such as he may deem it necessary to call for.” Stern Robert L., Supreme Court Practice, 8th ed., 2002, p. 576; citing to Nebraska v. Iowa, 379 U.S. 996 (1965) and Illinois v. Missouri, 384 U.S. 924 (1966).

2.) Its is necessary to:
a.) Identify those officials, agencies, departments and offices of the United States Government engaged in the collection, analysis, and reporting of data pertaining to cyber intrusions, and mitigation of effects of intrusions conducted and/or facilitated within the United States by the Government of Russia and or its agents in the year 2016.
b.) Obtain from those officials, agencies, departments and/or offices, and, subject to the discretion of the Special Master, obtain from third parties, whose identities are disclosed to the Special Master, any and all summaries, analyses or reports, classified or unclassified, related to cyber intrusions, more probably than not conducted directly or indirectly by the Government of Russia, and that were determined by those officials, agencies, departments and/or offices to have been related to the November 2016 congressional and presidential elections.
c.) If the Special Master determines the Government of Russia more probably than not committed one or more cyber intrusions involving the Presidential and Congressional elections in one or more precincts/districts in one or more states in the year 2016, enquire of polling organizations and the election officials in each of the affected precincts/districts/states to determine the possible impact of those intrusions.
d.) Prepare for the in camera review by the Supreme Court of a report of the findings of the Special Master conforming, to a reasonable extent, to the standards of Federal Rules of Evidence 702 and 703 as to whether there were cyber intrusions more probably than not committed by the Government of Russia which may have impacted one or more of the November 2016 congressional and presidential elections.
e.) If such intrusions probably occurred and possibly caused such impacts, the report would identify any individuals, whether agents of the Government of Russia or others who probably aided or abetted the intrusions, detail the probable type and extent of each intrusion, describe the possible impact of each intrusion or pattern of intrusions, and identify the particular relevant election races.

3.) Upon receipt of the Report of the Special Master, the Supreme Court would review in camera the Report and decide what, if any remedy to provide. Following redactions of classified information, the Report could be published by the Court for review by the parties and the public and the matter referred by the Court to a Special Prosecutor if criminal prosecution appeared warranted.

GROUNDS FOR RELIEF:

A. THE “CHECKS” ON FOREIGN INTRIGUE ANTICIPATED BY THE FRAMERS Page -2-

Page 2

EITHER ARE HISTORICALLY INEFFECTIVE OR HAVE BEEN PRE-EMPTED.
4. The Framers anticipated foreign powers might attempt to corrupt this country’s

political leaders.
5. Alexander Hamilton wrote, in regard to the means of election of the President:

“Nothing was to be more desired than that every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption. These most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one quarter, but chiefly in the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union?”

The Federalist No. 68 (Alexander Hamilton).
6. Hamilton foresaw the electoral college as one check because the constitutional

convention had “not made the appointment of the President to depend on any pre-existing bodies of men who might be tampered with beforehand to prostitute their votes; but they have referred it in the first instance to an immediate act of the people of America, to be exerted in the choice of persons for the temporary and sole purpose of making the appointment.” Id.

7. When Hamilton noted the “business of corruption, when it is to embrace so considerable a number of men, requires time as well as means,” Id., Hamilton could not have anticipated the speed of computer information, such as it is in the 21 century, or the vast wealth under the control of a single foreign despot.

8. “The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. …” U.S. Const. Art. II, § 1.

9. The electoral college is not independently selected as The Framers had anticipated.

10. In fact, the electors are chosen, part and parcel, in the same process as that by which votes are cast for the candidates for President and Vice President.

11. An “invasion” is the “incursion of an army for conquest or plunder.” Black’s Law Dictionary, 10th ed., 2014, p. 952.

12. “In The Federalist No. 43, James Madison referred to the Invasion Clause as affording protection in situations wherein a state is exposed to armed hostility from another political entity. Madison stated that Article IV, § 4 serves to protect a state from ‘foreign hostility’ and ‘ambitious or vindictive enterprises’ on the part of other states or foreign nations.” State of California v. United States, 104 F.3d 1086, 1091 (9th Cir. 1997).

13. Cyber attacks were amongst developments unforeseen by the Framers.

14. The persons who otherwise are under a duty conferred by the Constitution to enforce the laws under which

B. UNCLASSIFIED EVIDENCE OF CYBER INTRUSIONS BY THE GOVERNMENT OF RUSSIA:

14. The Addendum includes the Petition for Rulemaking to Require an Enhanced Reliability Standard to Detect, Report, Mitigate, and Remove Malware from the Bulk Power System; the Petition was filed by the Foundation for Resilient Societies, an organization comprised of experts in the fields of national defense, foreign relations, and cyber security.

15. The Addendum also includes correspondence from the Hon. Seth Moulton, a Page -3-

Page 3

Member of Congress, who documents that Congress and the Executive Branch are aware of the cyber intrusions involving the 2016 elections and neither Congress nor the Executive Branch has taken remedial steps to address either the consequences of the past electoral intrusions or prevent future intrusions.

C. BURDEN OF PERSUASION:

16. “[B]efore a federal court can responsibly order a new election, the claimants seeking this extraordinary relief must come forward with the most clear and convincing evidence that … persons… intentionally…altered the outcome of the election. A party contesting a Presidential election carries a heavy burden. Not to put too fine a point on it, this standard implies conduct of a most egregious nature, approximating criminal activity.” Donahue v. Board of Elections, 435 F.Supp. 957, 968 (E.D.N.Y. 1976).

17. Given that the “evidence” of cyber intrusions in the electoral process is for the most part the subject of security classification, only the judiciary can through the exercise of its equity power assemble the evidence necessary to support the necessary adjudication.

D. RIGHTS ABRIDGED:

18. Voting enjoys constitutional protection. Norman v. Reed, 502 U.S. 279, 112 S.Ct. 698 (1992); Burdick v. Takushi, 504 U.S. 428, 433, 112 S.Ct. 2059, 2063 (1992).

19. Voters have a fundamental right to associate politically and to vote for candidates of their choice. Schulz v. Williams, 44 F.3d 48, 54-55 (2nd Cir. 1994).

20. The United States Constitution is the written manifestation of the social compact among the citizens of the United States and their government. As part of the social compact, Article IV §4 guarantees the States and their citizens “… a Republican Form of Government, and …(that the United States will) … protect each of … (the States) ….against invasions….”

21. The Constitution guarantees elections as part of the compact free of foreign intervention. (See Federalist Paper No. 68, supra., Alexander Hamilton.)

22. Post election, Article I, §9 of the Constitution forbade the President from receiving any financial benefit from a foreign power. The right to cast a vote and the right to have one’s vote counted are both constitutionally protected. United States v. Classic, 313 U.S. 299, 315, 61 S.Ct. 1031 (1941).

23. A person’s interest in participating in the political process through voting and having his vote counted is a right both ‘individual and personal in nature.’ Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S. 533, 561, 84 S.Ct. 1362 (1963)” as cited in Griffin v. Burns, 570 F.2d 1065, 1072 (1st Cir. 1978).

24. “And the right of suffrage can be denied by a debasement or dilution of the weight of a citizen’s vote just as effectively as by wholly prohibiting the fee exercise of the franchise.” Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S. at 554.

25. “[W]e do not see how an election conducted under these circumstances can be said to be fair.” Griffin v. Burns, 570 F.2d at 1076.

D. STANDING TO REQUEST RELIEF:

26. The petitioners have a direct “stake” as citizens of the United States and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts who voted for Hillary Clinton and whose candidate lost due to electoral votes cast by electors of other states in response, in part, to the popular vote.

Page -4-

Page 4

27. The petitioners also have a direct “stake” in the Congressional races of other states because when the Republican candidates were declared to have “won” those races, the Republicans took substantial majorities in the House and Senate. Affidavits of Dianne Blumstein, Nancy Goodman, and Donna Soodalter-Toman filed herewith.

28. The interests of voters are “independent” of the interests of their candidates, and the failure of a candidate to pursue relief is not material to determining whether the voters for that candidate have “standing” to contest how an election was conducted. See Tarpley v. Salerno, 803 F.2d 57, 59-60 (2nd Cir. 1986).

29. The petitioners have standing to challenge the lawfulness of the election. Diamond v. Charles, 476 U.S. 54, 66-67, 106 S.Ct. 1697 (1986); Schulz v.Williams, 44 F.3d, supra 52-53.

30. The petitioners have a right to relief even if they did not vote for the losing candidate: “The right to participate in the choice of representatives … includes … the right to cast a ballot and to have it counted at the general election, whether for the successful candidate or not.” United States v. Classic, 313 U.S. 299, 318, 61 S.Ct. 1031 (1940).

31. “The Constitution of the United States protects the right of all qualified citizens to vote, in state and well as in federal elections. A consistent line of decisions by this Court in cases involving attempts to deny or restrict the right of suffrage has made this indelibly clear. It has been repeatedly recognized that all qualified voters have a constitutionally recognized protected right to vote. Reynolds v. Sims, 377 U.S.533, 554, 84 S.Ct. 1362, 1377 (1964)…” as cited in Donahue v. Board of Elections, 435 F.Supp., supra at 966.

32. Further, the “loss of (Democratic candidates’) opportunity to compete equally from votes in an election” vested Democratic voters with standing. See generally Fulani v. League of Women Voters Educ. Fund, 883 F.2d 621, 626 (2nd Cir. 1989).

E. ABILITY OF COURT TO GRANT RELIEF:

33. “The granting of equitable relief premised directly upon the Constitution has long been a practice accepted without discussion. Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Federal Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388, 404, 91 S.Ct. 1999 (Harlan concurring, 1971)” as cited in Donahue v. Board of Elections, 435 F.Supp., supra at 963.

34. “The point, however, is not that ordering a new Presidential election in New York State is beyond the equity jurisdiction of the federal courts. Protecting the integrity of elections – particularly Presidential contests – is essential to a free and democratic society. See United States v. Classic, supra.

35. “It is difficult to imagine a more damaging blow to public confidence in the electoral process than the election of a President whose margin of victory was provided by … illegal means. Indeed, entirely foreclosing injunctive relief in the federal courts would invite attempts to influence national elections by illegal means…. ” Donahue v. Board of Elections, 435 F.Supp. , supra at 967.

36. Relief for a violation of the Guarantee Clause may be provided by the Supreme Court:

Page -5-

The view that the Guarantee Clause implicates only non-judiciable political questions has its origin in Luther v. Borden …. this view has not always been accepted. In a group of cases decided before the holding of Luther was elevated into a general rule of non-justiciability, the Court addressed the merits of the

Page 5

claims founded on the Guarantee Clause without any suggestion that the claims were non-justiciable…. More recently, the Court has suggested that perhaps not all claims under the Guarantee clause present non-judiciable political questions …. Contemporary commentators have likewise suggested that courts should address the merits of such claims, at least in some circumstances.

New York v. United States, 505 U.S. 144, 156, 112 S.Ct. 2433 (1992) (Justice O’Connor); see also Erwin Chemerinksy, “Cases Under the Guarantee Clause Should be Justiciable”, University of Colorado Law Review, Vol. 65, p. 849.

37. Other cases that have addressed the Guarantee clause can be distinguished by a critical element—they do not concern an allegation that the President, who is charged with enforcement of the body of laws in question, obtained his office through the invasion at issue. See People of Colorado ex rel. Suthers v. Gonzales, 558 F.Supp.2d 1158, 1161 (D.Colo. 2007) (claim that United States failed to protect plaintiffs from invasion “implicates foreign policy and national defense issues, which are the province of the political branches of government and which courts are reluctant to address”); also State of California v. United States, 104 F.3d at 1091 (California’s allegation it had been “invaded” by immigrants and suffered fiscal losses where “the political branches have made no such determination would disregard the constitutional duties that are the specific responsibility of other branches of government, and would result in the Court making an effective non-judicial policy decision.”).

38.

The absence of necessary parties does not preclude relief where “… equity demands that the court proceed in their absence.” Donahue v. Board of Elections, 435 F.Supp., supra 965 citing Toney v. White, 476 F.2d 203, 207 (5th Cir.).

Willful misconduct renders misconduct justiciable. Hennings v. Grafton, 523 F.2d 861, 864 (7th Cir. 1975). “The Supreme Court has … read the criminal counterpart to the civil rights statutes as conferring federal jurisdiction over corrupt practices in state-run elections for federal office. United States v. Saylor, 322 U.S. 385, 64 S.Ct. 1101 (1944)” as cited in Griffin v. Burns, 570 F.2d, supra at 1076. “[P]atent and fundamental unfairness” may be a violation of the due process clause. Gold v. Feinberg, 101 F.3d 796, 801 (2nd Cir. 1996) citing Griffin v. Burns, 570 F.2d, supra at 1077. The cyber attacks were not a “political act” of one party or a branch of the United States government but rather the intrusion of a foreign state in our democracy, and claims for violation of Article IV §4 are subject to adjudication. Compare Baker v. Carr, 369 U.S. 186 (1962) The cyber intrusions were acts of espionage and aggression by a foreign power directed against the United States and candidates seeking public office within the Legislative and Executive Branches of the United States government.

CONCLUSION:
Americans have fought and died to maintain the integrity of America’s version of

democracy. It is reasonable to infer that if the State of Russia committed these acts, it did so to have one or more “creatures of its own” elected to high office – i.e. “Manchurian Candidates.”

Page -6-

Page 6

In so doing, these “creatures” may over the term of their office have more long term impact than the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, the German invasions of European countries in both World Wars, and the “cold war” with the Soviet Union.

The relief sought is non-partisan due to the knowing failure prior to the November 2016 election of both the Executive Branch headed by a Democratic President and the houses of Congress dominated by Republicans to implement the guarantees of Article IV in the Constitution. Post election, it appears that the intrusions may have benefitted candidates of one party over the other, and with both the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch in control of a single party, it is unrealistic to expect a meaningful inquiry and remedy afforded by either branch of government. Given the failure of politicians of both persuasions to live up to the mandate of the Constitution, only the Judiciary can afford the relief to which the voters of the United States are entitled. To do so, it is most prudent for the Supreme Court to pull back the curtain of National Security, determine the nature of the intrusions, identify the perpetrators, and fashion permanent relief thereafter.

The result would assure the citizens of the United States that the American version of democracy survived and that the members of Congress, the President and Vice President were legitimate expressions of that democracy. If material impacts were found by the Special Master to have occurred in specific races due to intrusions and the Court concludes that the integrity of specific races fell below constitutional minimums, the Court could fashion relief suitable for each race. If a new election were mandated for one or more races, the Court could frame rules regarding the retroactive effect, if any, of the invalidated elections.

If the 2016 election for President and Vice President did not meet constitutional minimums, the position of President could be filled consistent with the official order of succession pending a “revote” for the President and Vice President in the 2018 election cycle. If the election of certain Representatives and Senators did not meet constitutional minimums, the effected states could appoint replacements pursuant to state law and subject to the results of new elections conducted consistent with state law.

    • rachael scandarion says:

      Our country is under threat by a group of Traitors whose allegiance lies not with the Constitution they swore to protect but rather to their Need for Greed and Power. This is unacceptable. Americans will fight to the end to save our Republic… even if the Traitors who sit in the highest offices in our land, put Party over Country and have committed Treason to ensure their positions. #WeDontSitDownWeDontShutUpWePersist #Resistance

    • Deborah Malara says:

      Judical review and determination is absolutely necessary.

    • robndea says:

      You have my support. Cheryl Deane Campbell, Chehalis, WA

    • Barbara Francois says:

      The people of this nation, if not the world, must be assured that the election of our President was aboveboard. President Trump, were he a wise man, should welcome an investigation, to prove beyond reasonable doubt that he is indeed the legitimate President of the U.S.. As a nation, we need to abstain from demanding a new election until the courts have established a conclusion. Many of us may not be happy about the current POTUS, but it would be reassuring to at least know his election was not influenced by a foreign entity.

    • Dale Kay says:

      We already had an election, check the results. (Nearly a 3,000,000 spread)

    • Tracy Altmaier says:

      Please do this, for justice, to save the people of the USA, and the planet.

    • Yes! This is an interesting direction taken to ensure that our democratic process remains pure. I would appreciate consideration of a Special Counsel to ensure our values are safe.

    • deborah Peirson says:

      We need to remove Donald Trump from office and hold a new election Please for the well being of our country

      • Absolutely and without any question whatsoever. Donald Trump, having had no political experience, has proven he is not qualified to be the President of The United States, , and I implore you to hold a new election for the well-being of our country.

    • Debbie Messenger says:

      Free & Fair elections are at the core of democracy. I demand a free and clean election.

  7. Gerry says:

    Please.

  8. Also demand a new free and clean election, along with a through investigation of all activities by parties involved with Russia in the deliberate criminal attempt to make Trump President.

  9. Truth&Justice says:

    Special Master to investigate may be the only way we can get to the TRUTH! Legislative Branch and Executive Branch each appear to be intent on hiding the full extent of foreign interference. They know they have too much to lose if the interference is so disruptive as to invalidate the outcome. Many levels of interference have a cumulative effect. The people need to be protected from corruption and abuses of power. This may be our last hope to protect and preserve this union!

    • Gail L. Harris says:

      We agree completely with your statement! Concerned about the loss of our democracy being managed by the Pupoetmasters Bannon, a white supremacist and Putin, Dictator of Russia, using Trump,as their puppet. The goal is to weaken our democratic system directing our country tona fascist government. We feel a new election is required since Trump is not a legitimate president! Concerned about handing this government in its present chaotic state to our children and grandchildren!

  10. Rachael Scandarion says:

    As a voter from the swing state of Florida, a state that in previous elections has come under attack via compromised electronic voting systems (https://youtu.be/kelVrADzPYU) I Urge the Court to appoint a Special Master forthwith and Upon ascertaining substantial interference and “AID & COMFORT” to affect the outcome of our 2016 election by an enemy state find in favor of plaintiffs and with great haste and urgency expedite a Revote before the undermining of our Republic is beyond repair and the potential compromising of our separation of powers prevents our Judiciary from acting in accordance with our Constitution and our free and independent democracy.

  11. Shannon McGoey says:

    I demand a free and clean election.

  12. Kathleen Gianandrea says:

    I demand an investigation and re-vote if SCOTUS finds foreign entities interfered in our election.

  13. anne says:

    i’m on the outside looking in, waiting impatiently to receive my K1 visa to go home to Oregon and marry my partner of more than 12 years. not only for myself and family, but all of US and world’s health and safety, i’d like there to be an investigation that will prove beyond shadow of a doubt that the election of 45 to office was illegal. Then the writ of mandamus will be approved & passed, & US can get on with a free and clean election and hopefully HRC will run once more and take her rightful place at 1600 pennsylvania av and get on with the business of making the world a better place for all.

  14. I demand an Investigation by Special Master with re-election if evidence is found. Thank you!

  18. Susan T Bennett says:

    yes!

  19. Gail Harris says:

    This is an excellent start in saving our democracy! Congress will do nothing, so RBG and the Supreme Court seem the right way to go!! Godspeed before damage is done to our country and its people!

    • Gail Harris says:

      I am requesting a new election and removal of trump who is being managed by Putin and Bannon, the puppeteers with Trump being the puppet. He is an illigitimate president, incapable of performing his responsibilities or appointing appropriate people to government offices. Very concerned about our democracy persisting for our children and grandchildren, as well as future generations!

  20. Marilou Mullan says:

    Thank you! Our checks and balances are being assaulted by an administration which bends facts to its own priorities. My father served in WWII, and was personally involved in “liberating” Ordruff Concentration Camp. He took horrific photos (which are part of the National Holocaust Museum). He schooled 3 generations of our family until his death at 93. His words were, “NEVER FORGET! He spoke of Hitler’s slow takeover of Europe, beginning with inciting hatred and suspicion and then slowly altering facts. Again, thank you, from me, my 93 year old mother, and on behalf of my children, grand and great grandchildren.

  21. Betty Hannah says:

    Someone needs to stand up for democracy, the people, and save the morality of this country. With the evidence that was already presented before the election, this man should never have been sworn into the highest office of the land. As he has been saying, “The election was rigged” (by his cohorts & his Russian master).

  22. Joe H Tomlinson says:

    We need a full account of the 2016 General Election because of revelations of cyber attack by a foreign nation, the candidates Donald Trump and Michael Pence as well as the Republican National Committee.

  23. Jomarie Zeleznik says:

    This reasoning is logical and well argued

  24. Betsy comeau says:

    Ig demand a re- election asap…….

  25. marianne michel says:

    We the people of the United States of America, have always had the pride that we have a free election no matter who the winner was, but this time we did;t and I really believe that if we don’t go by the constitution then what do we have? We need to know that our Supreme court is there for us, they have always had a fair and bias report for our government we hold our heads up for this country, Please don’t let this President ruin what our fore fathers fought for long ago, and the men and women of today risking their lives for.
    Thank You
    Marianne

  26. Mary Kouloubri says:

    I demand an Investigation by Special Master with re-election if evidence is found. Thank you!

  27. The election was rigged by Trump, the Russians and some of the congressman. We need an independent investigation and congress says no. We the people DEMAND justice.

  28. Susan Alexander says:

    We the people do not want another country chosing a President to their liking. We demand an investigation and, if malfeasance is found, then a new election.

  29. Jim K says:

    Fun idea but if the foreign interference is limited to fake news and propaganda tipping the scales, it’s on us for not educating our population well enough to think critically.

  30. Sherry Kallab says:

    I support the notion of the petitioners for appointment of a special master due to the Russian interference in this election and the need for a special investigation committee into the connection to the Trump campaign.

  31. Jackie Connolly says:

    I demand a free and clean election

  32. Joan Lio says:

    I demand an investigation

  33. Lula Parfitt says:

    I believe that this is the rights of all people to have no more lies and justice for all

  34. Anne McPartlen says:

    So thankful. This gives me so much hope for our government.

  35. DianeDLeaders says:

    Having an objective transparent review of the cyber hacking and it’s effect on our elections would help us all be more comfortable. Regardless of the result, it would be nice to have it reviewed by an agency we can all trust.

  36. Kathleen Jukich says:

    This should be done immediately, if not sooner!

  37. judy minnick says:

    yes please

  38. cheryl Warner says:

    Our country’s stability as a democratic republic, as well as its credible reputation in the world, has been derailed. To reclaim both our integrity and our leadership role with other nations, we must seek a fair and equitable remedy to the chaotic circumstances of our current governance. I welcome this petition.

  39. Donna Palko says:

    Our Legislative branch has been taken over by Republican Representatives that do not have the best interest of their continuance or our country as they rule! They have ignored the Constitution and have kept an unfit President in Office for his assist in destroying our democracy. The Judicial branch of our government is the only one we can turn to now to defend our country, so I beseech you allow this partition be carried out.

  40. Judy A. Drake says:

    I Judy A. Drake fully agree with this petition for the Supreme Court to take the actions ascribed to by the petition.

  41. Ann Stevens says:

    I demand a new and free election of President and Vice President of this 2016.

  42. Kathryn says:

    The Legislative Branch of government seems to be immobilized by their fear of trump and how their jobs will be affected if they do anything to investigate what has happened. They want to get their agenda passed, that seems to be their goal. What about the country, patriotism and doing the right thing? Who are “we the people” supposed to count on?

  50. Patricia Ridenour says:

    I agree that there is a need for the Court to appoint an investigator to look into the intrusion of this countries election process by outside entities and to take action to address any and all resulting “wrongs” that came from it. This is important because it appears it may be the only way, due to political allegiances, this investigation may be authorized.

  51. Phyllis Yarnold says:

    Thank you for offering a solution to this horrible situation America is in. A new election is the only fair remedy, since the previous election was compromised by the interference of a foreign country. The Court is our last resort, so I add my voice to the demand for a new, fair election. Please do it as quickly as possible!

  52. Peggie says:

    I demand that our democracy be preserved. This election was neither free nor fair.

  54. Judy baker says:

  56. Nicole Burnett says:

    I demand an investigation and if there is just cause, I demand accountability with impeachment.

  57. PJMANOR says:

    There is strong evidence that the current administration has gained power through illegitimate means, suspecting the aid of a foreign power and treason by US government officials, specifically Mitch Mc Connell, against the US government and the people of the United States. I, along with the people of the United States, demand a full investigation into the involvement of Russia in our election process and ongoing clandestine or illegal involvement between the Trump-Pence administration, the Russian government and agents, and traitors in government and the private sector in the U.S.

  58. H Ruvelas says:

    With the continuing assault against intelligence community, the journalists and publishers of our free press, the TV commentators and their stations and the apparent soft approach of our president to the incursion of a Russian ship within 30 miles off our coast this administration does not have our country’s interest first and foremost in their priorities.
    The election was disrupted by hacks and false propaganda and this must be investigated and dealt with as an crime in the USA.

  59. This seems reasonable at the very least. This reich seems to be fomenting street violence and I would assume most of you would wish to avoid that.

  60. Penny Duchene-Carson says:

    I demand a free and clean new election. Because there are so many irregularities in states’ precincts a recount would not be adequate or accurate. We need a new Federal election for President, as well as new state elections.

    I agree that we need a Special Master to determine if there was a cyber invasion by a foreign government. If so, there must be s Special Election to elect a new president and to save our country from falling apart.

    When the west coast most populas part of the country had there ballots counted and the east coast all states that where needed to win Michigan, Florida, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where Blue uncounted after 4 hrs ahead in the pools turned red one by one I knew the it was a twisted election.

  63. Sandra DiMauro says:

    The Koch brothers “2010 Citizens United decision in favor of unlimited dark money” placed the American people at a unattainable financial disadvantage with Billionaires. Republican voter restriction at state level has disenfranchised the old, minorities and poor. Gerrymandering of the votes in every state, has manipulated the vote to favor Republicans. Gerrymandering has also made the Electoral College just another tool of the Republican party. This Administration is raping the middle class and poor of every social and environmental protection that has been put in place over the last 50 years. The 2017 Republican’s control of all 3 branches will end Democracy for America’s future.

    • Kathryn says:

      Yes I agree with all points of this petition that we need a new election because of Russian interference. Paper ballots should only be used. Electoral college must be abolished and the popular vote Whereby one citizen, one vote, equally, will prevail. Justices, please preserve our democracy by having this special election, and investigate and bring to justice those who have colluded with Russia to elect Donald Trump.

      • Kathryn says:

        This administration has been filled with contemptuous traitors who are tearing down our government because of Russian success interfering with this election. Recently, an article by Roger Cohen, which I feel speaks for me and the majority of my fellow Americans. …”There is a deeper contempt, even more treacherous. It is for the Constitution. Trump has attacked the freedom of the press enshrined in the First Amendment, and the independence of the judiciary. His reckless travel ban raised issues of due process and religious discrimination. Serious questions exist as to whether “aid or comfort” was given by the Trump entourage to an American enemy — in this case Russia — during the presidential campaign and after his victory on Nov. 8.

        This contempt was signaled in his inaugural speech when Trump said, “The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.” No, the president’s oath is to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” It is to the law not the “volk.”

    I request an Independent Investigation and new election, free from the tampering of a foreign nation.

  65. Jan Schiernbeck says:

    I am in total agreement with this motion! We need a new election.

  66. Claire says:

    I demand a new free and fair election to include all down ballot offices. This evidence was available prior to the election and should have been made public but Mitch McConnell refused to do so. He should be charged with treason, or whatever the appropriate charge would be for withholding critical information to the American voters who voted without having all the necessary information available to them in order to cast an informed vote. The whole trump administration should be charged with, if not treason, at least collusion with a foreign power. All offices trump has filled and anything he has signed, as well as anything that has passed in congress needs to be repealed, undone and declared illegal and illegitimate as this election was.

  81. Mike h says:

    The Framers sought to ensure an electoral system which was, at its heart, a reflection of the will of the voters, and the voters alone, without influence from outside agencies or governments.
    The American people rely on your leadership to uphold these principals. A full and extensive investigation is needed, and a re-vote may be appropriate.

  82. Linda Ellis says:

    I respectfully request that as soon as practicable that a qualified Special Master be appointed to oversee the investigation of illegal foreign intervention and charges and a re-election be enforced as deemed appropriate by the findings of this investigation.

  83. We must have an Independent Investigation. Also, we need a new, open, free and honest election! Let’s take our democracy back now!

  84. Carol Mandera says:

    If we can get to the bottom of things this way, I saw we go for it. We need to know who did, said, knew what and when. We need to ensure that our election process is fair and honest, and we have a lot of work to do on many fronts to achieve that assurance. This would be just one of many steps needed.

  85. Dawn Hendry says:

    I agree that this is urgently needed to defend the democratic principals of the United States. Please so all you can to prosecute any treasonous activities that have happened. Thank you.

  86. Gerald Daker says:

    Do over, Make America Smart Again…

  87. Kimberly Ellis says:

    Please do this. We deserve a clean election.

  88. Kristen Petersen says:

    I agree that this is urgently needed to defend the democratic principals of the United States. Please so all you can to prosecute any treasonous activities that have happened. Thank you.

  89. I also respectfully petition for the appointment of Special Master to investigate the circumstances of the 2016 elections, to ascertain the degree to which a foreign power altered the outcome of the election, to prosecute those who were complicit in the foreign power’s cybernetic invasion, and to require a re-election if deemed appropriate.

  90. Fara Tabrizi says:

    Please do this! We have to know the truth about the 2016 elections and the influence of an adversary foreign government on our election.

  91. John La Briola says:

    We demand an independant investigation into GOP/Russia collusion in hijacking the election. Get rid of the outdated electoral college while you’re at it!

  92. Diana Hofman says:

    Please give us a free and clean election. I fear our country has been put at risk, and our constitution is being challenged. Please help stop the insanity.

    I would like to demand a special master and a new election please. Save our democracy.

  94. Franca Gaudio says:

    Yes please! I demand an election free from foreign intrusion. Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of our democracy. now more that ever, we must protect our democracy!

  95. Ramona Maassen says:

    Thank you. I too, demand a new election.

  96. Aster White says:

    i also petition for an investigation and new election if appropriate. I also say prosecute those complicit in treasonous behavior including but not limited to foreign power cyber-invasion.

  97. Sheryl McNamee says:

    Is this real? I cannot find any other references via internet searching. If it is real I am in full and total support. An investigation is necessary to ensure the integrity of democracy; if democracy has been compromised, action needs to be taken. If.

  98. Marilyn wilcher says:

    We must have a special master. There is clearly illegal activity envolving Putin and Trump.

  99. Jennie Stcloud says:

    I demand a thorough investigation of collusion between the government of Russia at its highest levels and the presidential campaign of Republican Donald Trump, for the purpose of disrupting our democratic and constitutional presidential election November 2016 and assisting in the illegitimate election of Donald Trump. Should collusion be found, I demand a new election be held on a certain date and not to be preceded by any campaigning by candidates.

  100. We need an independent investigation into the involvement of trump and his campaign with Russia. We need to know any ties Trump, his family, and his many businesses have with Russia. I insist that we need a re-vote, because of the involvement of Russia and the FBI’s release of the letter, about Hillary Clinton’s emails. It is very obvious that was timed and done, to help sway the election in favor of trump. We need to dissolve the electoral college and that you do this immediately. We are a democracy or thought we were, and trump did not win by a majority. This election was rigged! We need to preserve our once free and great country…Free and great until last Nov. 8!

  101. Billiruth Wickey says:

    I demand an Investigation by Special Master with re-election if evidence is found. I also say prosecute those complicit in treasonous behavior including but not limited to foreign power cyber-invasion.

  104. wanda adams says:

    I also petition the court for investigation and new election. Not only a new President Vice President an staff but also if the investigations show treason that those who are implicated in this behavior stand trial and if found guilty be dealt with under the punishment for treason. Including Congress and through all the 3 parts of the government and more sanctions be placed on the governments that are also implicated.

  105. Sandra McPartlon says:

    There can be no thorough investigation of the Russia scandal under Republican rule. Please conduct this with a Special Master. Our democracy is in jeopardy of becoming destabilized. Citizens live in fear each day due to the unpredictability of what will occur with Russia and the world under this current Commander in Chief.

  106. Aisha Baker says:

    In order to ensure the sanctity of our democracy we need a free and fair election that is not interfered with by a foreign entity. We need a new election.

    A fair election was denied me and all fellow citizens and I have personally suffered stress. An unbelievable amount of disillusionment with the process is unfair and can be reversedwith a new election. A paper ballot and witnesses to the counts too.

  113. cookndrive says:

    Be very careful what you ask for. We all are aware that if there is investigation into fraudulent election, and the problems were averted, the result may be a Trump win by a much larger margin than you can imagine, in many MORE states. We know that at least 3 million votes in California alone were ineligible immigrants, that would put California’s electors for Trump, not Hillary. This may result in a much BIGGER loss for Clinton. The same might be said in other states where she won the electoral votes.

  114. Deb Frisco says:

    A/ black cloud of doubt now looms over this very suspicious election cycle. The only solution is a thorough investigation and a re-vote to guarantee a free and fair election.

  115. Marilyn says:

    Since it appears there was interference in this election with new information coming forth on a daily basis, I do believe we need to have a free and clean election. I agree that a Special Master should be appointed to investigate the foreign interference that occurred from Russia. In order to preserve the freedoms we have enjoyed, I would respectfully request that a full and proper investigation be made by an appointed Special Master.

  116. Yes, we need relief!

    Yes, please investigate. This situation our Nation finds itself in could break the democracy our people have been so proud of since the Revolutionary War and the fine work our Founding Fathers did in creating our Constitution and founding our Democratic government. I ask the Supreme Court to please protect our government and the people of the United States of America in this our most troubled time.

  122. I am really hoping this happens. I think it is going to take the judicial branch to break this hold of Russia’s infiltration.

  123. As a United States citizen, I demand a free and clean re-election.

  124. Michael Dillon says:

    We need a thorough and independent examination and evaluation of the 2016 Presidential and national election, and the role of Russian cyber espionage in it. This activity threatens the fabric of our democracy and the future of democracy in the free world. Putin is a dictator who has subverted his country’s constitution to remain in power, who has invaded Ukraine and annexed its territory, and who wishes to disable the American way of government by sabotaging its free elections, among other goals.

    The election has resulted in an inordinate victory for the Republican Party due to this interference, coupled with voter suppression and gerrymandering of the election base, and promulgation of false news stories both from within and outside the government. Up till now the Republicans have shown themselves to value party over country, just as they did during the time of the 44th president’s tenure. They have been obstructionist in their politics and unconstitutional in their efforts to deny appointments to the Supreme Court and other judiciary positions. They have promoted gridlock in the congress and sold themselves out to wealthy donors at the expense of the principals on which our country was founded.

  125. Linda says:

    Please give us a free and clean election! I too, request the appointment of a Special Master.

  126. Joan B says:

    I also respectfully petition for the appointment of Special Master to investigate the circumstances of the 2016 elections, to ascertain the degree to which a foreign power altered the outcome of the election, to prosecute those who were complicit in the foreign power’s cybernetic invasion, and to require a re-election if deemed appropriate. The founding fathers could not have envisioned an attack on our nation through cyber-warfare. Every day that passes the government of the US is unable to protect it’s citizens from this invasion. Evidence will likely be destroyed by the Russian government, their agents and any accomplices, requiring timely investigation by the appointment of Special Master. If the investigation confirms foreign intervention of the 2016 election, a new election appears to be the only fair redress.

  127. Fran Cary says:

    I support appointing Special Master. I wrote a comment but not sure I posted it.

  128. Heather says:

    Please appoint a Special Master to conduct an investigation in an expeditious manner. If claims are substantiated, please order a new election. Relief is needed. Thank you.

  129. margaret koelling says:

    Yes I believe treason was committed and the election results should be nullified. I also believe that all parties with knowledge of this are complicit and should be removed from office and prosecuted. This includes Ryan, McConnell, and anyone else discovered to have knowledge of these actions.

  130. Geri Zeibert says:

    It appears the Supreme Court has become the last resort in the hope of continuing true democracy in the US. When millions of people question the validity of an election, the free press is under attack, one party continually attempts to pass laws that disenfranchise specific classes of voters and a possibly illegally elected president openly admires dictators such as Putin and Hitler, seeks to suppress dissent by calling peaceful protestors “agitators” and attempts to bend reality to his will by the use of “alternate facts”; there is a clear and present danger to our Constitution and democracy in a free society. If the judicial branch fails to act, America is lost.

  131. Julie Harper says:

    New Election…Treason!

  132. It appears obvious that the election was not bona fide, that it was tampered with by a foreign power in collision with some Americans who stood to gain by the outcome.

  133. Terese kristensen says:

    I believe our democracy and citizen rights have been breached by foreign and domestic profiteers. I believe that an independent investigation into our elections is of the utmost importance. I believe that this current administration is attempting to use the office of the president to lift the sanctions on Russia. I believe that members of congress, senate and presidential cabinet are being manipulated by the fossil fuel industry and are repealing protections in our laws to further their own agendas and profits. I do not have faith in or trust this current administration and would like a new election and an investigation into the blatant corruption that is occurring daily!

  134. Janetta Rogers says:

    I feel that there needs to be a new election because of Russia’s involvement and because of the FBI speaking publicly about emails on Anthony Weiners computer. They say even if Russia did hack the DNCs computers it didn’t play a part in Hillary losing. I say yes it did because their were son many voters that had decided to vote for her but changed their minds after comey spoke publicly about the emails and the hacking of the DNC.

  135. Eileen says:

    I demand the results of this election be declared invalid due to Russia interference and irresponsible behavior from our own FBI Director, both acting with clear partisan intent. Moreover, the evidence of GOP tampering with voting machines is overwhelming, for example in Kansas: http://ShowMeTheVotes.org. However I do not request a new election. The American people need not be put through such a thing. The overwhelming majority chose Hillary Clinton. Disqualify the GOP for colluding with Russia and colluding with the FBI Director. In any other competition, disqualifying the front runner means the next-up wins. Since Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, it is perfectly logical and fair that she would become our 46th president.

  152. Kathryn says:

    The Supreme Court must act quickly towards a new election and special independent investigation. We have known for some time that the Russians interfered in our election in an effort to favor Trump. What we are learning in recent weeks are the number of Trump advisers and administrative officials who had contact with the Russian ambassador before the election, the frequency of those contacts, and the attempts, at least by some, to conceal those contacts.

    But we now know, according to reporting by The Washington Post, that Attorney General Jeff Sessions also met at least twice with the ambassador during the campaign — once at the Republican National Convention — and then lied about those contacts under oath during his confirmation hearings.

    Please request and insist upon.an election free of interference from outside countries.

  159. Someone must remove this illegitimate president from power before he entirely destroys our democracy. He was “elected” through Russian intervention in our election.

  160. Pamela Power says:

    That’s a good idea. Make Joe Biden interim president and let Hillary be free to run again in a revote. Surely, even with their normal tactics or gerrymandering and voter suppression Hillary would have won. Everyone expected her to win. Pollsters expected her to win. The polls can’t all be wrong. On November 8th I left on a trip, sure that Hillary would win, and then Mr Obama would be put on the Supreme court possibly, he world was in its heaven and we’d go forward with a democratic congress maybe and a democratic senate and sanity would continue.

  161. Debra Holmes says:

    You have my support!

  162. Nina Darley says:

    As an American citizen, I demand the right to participate in a fair, democratic election, free of interference from foreign interests. I demand all candidates be held to the same high standards of experience and wish to serve for the greater good of all American citizens. To uphold the constitution and the laws of the land.

  163. Gail Allison says:

    I am in agreement and add that elections for all levels, federal and state be redone and that the voting be done over an extended period allowing more Americans the opportunity to exercise their civic duty. Safe guards should be put back in place to insure integrity of the voting process.

  165. Dawna Robertson says:

    I demand that we remove the traitors, Trump and Pence, from high office for enlisting the illegal assistance of a foreign adversary to corrupt the outcome of the election. I demand that ALL HACKED VOTING MACHINES, ALL BALLOT SUPPRESSION, ALL EXTREME GERRYMANDERING be taken into account and that THE 2016 election results be declared invalid. I demand a full, independent and expanded investigation of ALL REPUBLICAN officials re: Russian ties, correspondence and COLLABORATION that influenced the election process. I also demand an investigation into the murder of DNC analyst, Seth Rich.

  166. Lynelle Hansen says:

    I support/demand a full investigation

  167. GARY OLIVER says:

    This election was ratified in the senate over many house democrats objections chief among those objections was that there were already known associations between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Also to what extent did the russian government interfere with a very close election. I have been saying from the start either of those two related arguments could make the election in violation of the constitution. I think the court should find that the election was unconstitutional as ratified by the senate and make the results nullified and a new election should be held with very carefully verifiable practices.

  186. Joyce Miller says:

    There are so many questions about Trump’s business dealings with Russia. It is crazy vial to investigate what role the Russians played in getting Trump elected.

  187. Louella Welch says:

    I demand that we remove the Trump administration from office because of Russian interference in our election. Americans have never experienced this kind of traitorous behavior. It is time to end this coup and let the American people choose a president that represents the democratic ideals set forth by our founding
    fathers.

  199. DARA Dupree says:

    He is unfit and unqualified to lead. He is a crook who has refused to release his taxes, who has created a hostile world with his vicious targeting of all people. He has qyestinable business practices with government officials in countries who are not our allues. He does not represent the America we want.
