Supreme Court to rule on 'faithless electors' who tried to defeat Donald Trump in the electoral college in 2016 by NOT voting in line with their states' results

The Supreme Court on Wednesday heard cases dealing with whether 'faithless' electors may vote differently than they pledge to the state voters who selected them – in a matter that could play out in the 2000 election after briefly threatening Donald Trump's victory.

It is an issue that could bring a 'constitutional crisis,' warned one of the attorneys arguing before the court.

Justices questioned Lawrence Lessig, the attorney representing the side of Bret Chiafalo, a delegate for Hillary Clinton who was fined $1,000 after carrying out a plan to instead back a moderate Republican because he believed Trump was a 'clear and present danger.'
