Raw Story: New details emerged on Democrats’ efforts to prevent Donald Trump from stealing the 2020 election in a new report by Jane Mayer for The New Yorker.

Mayer reports that former Solicitor General Seth Waxman assembled a team after Trump’s comments in March that the only way he could lose the election if there was fraud.

Waxman started brainstorming the “doomsday scenarios” that could occur, finally assembling a “three-and-a-half-page single-spaced list of potential catastrophes.”

“Eleven months before the Senate impeachment trial exposed an unprecedented level of political savagery, Waxman quietly prepared for the worst. He reached out to two other former Solicitors General, Walter Dellinger and Donald Verrilli, who served as the Clinton and the Obama Administrations’ advocates, respectively, before the Supreme Court. By April, they had formed a small swat team to coordinate with the Biden campaign. They called themselves the Three Amigos, but the campaign referred to them as SG3. Their goal: safeguarding the election,” Mayer reported.

“Coordinating with the Biden campaign’s lawyers, each of the Three Amigos headed up a separate task force. Verrilli rounded up volunteer legal teams to address the ways in which Trump might try to use his executive powers to disrupt voting. Dellinger focussed on what could go wrong after the electors cast their ballots, in December. Waxman handled everything else, including potentially rebellious state legislatures, which they considered the most likely threat. By May, he had twenty legal teams on it,” The New Yorker reported.

The Biden campaign created hoodies reading “Team SG3” for the team.

Despite Biden been sworn-in as president, they are still worried about the future.

Meet SG3: The Élite Legal Squad That Vowed to Safeguard the Election

Calling themselves the Three Amigos, a self-appointed legal SWAT team of former Solicitors General ran through all the Doomsday scenarios they could think of—except armed insurrection at the Capitol.

Last March, after President Trump declaimed that the only way he could lose the election was if there was fraud, Seth Waxman couldn’t sleep. A member of the tiny, élite club of litigators who have served as Solicitors General of the United States, Waxman is not a mellow guy. An obsessive runner with the wound-up energy of a twisted rubber band, he often wakes up at three in the morning agitated by something or other. Typically, he makes a cup of tea, works for an hour, and goes back to bed. But the insomnia last March, he said, “was, like, five nights in a row!”

The proximate cause was what he calls “the Doomsday scenarios,” which he feared could unfold if Trump tried to subvert the 2020 election. Could the President order the election postponed because of the pandemic? he wondered. Could he call a reunion of the ice agents he sent into Portland to intimidate minority voters in urban centers?

Night after night, Waxman tabulated every possible thing that could go wrong. Having advised several Democratic Presidential campaigns, he was familiar with the pitfalls. But none of the nightmares conjured by Trump “corresponded with anything I’d worried about in earlier campaigns,” he said. He ended up with a three-and-a-half-page single-spaced list of potential catastrophes.

Eleven months before the Senate impeachment trial exposed an unprecedented level of political savagery, Waxman quietly prepared for the worst. He reached out to two other former Solicitors General, Walter Dellinger and Donald Verrilli, who served as the Clinton and the Obama Administrations’ advocates, respectively, before the Supreme Court. By April, they had formed a small swat team to coördinate with the Biden campaign. They called themselves the Three Amigos, but the campaign referred to them as SG3. Their goal: safeguarding the election.

“They were phenomenal,” Bob Bauer, a legal adviser to the Biden campaign, said. “Our preoccupation was to do everything we could to address the potential that the electoral system would just collapse.” To describe the trio’s special area of legal assistance, the Biden campaign avoided using Waxman’s term, “Doomsday scenarios,” in favor of the less apocalyptic term “unconventional challenges.” read more at…

  1. Stopped Trump from stealing the election? Trump won this by an enormous margin, the midnite boys bringing boxes of illegal votes changed the outcome and now we have a demented senile old fart that can barely read the script held in front of him, and Harris the Kamel waiting to take over, then the illuminati will completely take over and everyone will be forced to take the gene altering vaxx and turn them into docile transhumans.

    • and what happens to those who resist to take the gene altering vaxx and do not??? they will get shot with a .50 ?? shot should hit in the head to be sure, because in other body place can survive, as happened with Charles Beckwith in Nam

  2. The men who created ISIS to overthrow Syria (and failed) just overthrew America with the flick of a pen, and to the applause of the neutered staff here. Well, there is one American patriot left, his name is Ken O’Keefe and he has a video just for you, see comment below.

  3. I don’t know how much convincing this article is to readers, but not at all to me. By the end of 2019, just right before the COVID-19 occurred, the US economic report at the time was very positive. The job market was high and the unemployment rate was so low. Not mentioning about other good domestic and foreign policies in place that pursue the Trump’s doctrine “America First”. I have a small group of friends and we were very much agreeing that president Trump would be very likely re-elected unless something big happened. This is well consistent with what Trump said in March 2020. So, at that time what Seth Waxman and his SG3 have in mind to think that Trump is going to steal the 2020 election. In addition, given that the SG3 team has some reasons I don’t know, why did they side up with the Biden campaign? To prevent the steal? It sounds like a person who thinks a boxer is going to cheat in a fight, so instead he teams up with the referee to make sure a fair fight to take place, he sides up with the boxer’s opponent. Back to the 2020 election, despites so many evidences given either by testimonies in person or in affidavit as well as investigative reports, I don’t see the accused trying to disprove those other than saying those are not true. What about a bunch of video clips showing the evidences?

    • you have a point there about COVID which leaves open the question…. who release the virus and with what purpose???

  4. Perhaps one tactic they had planned for was to LET the riot go out of control (or in control as planned) so that finally once and for all Trump and his supporters would be exposed for exactly who they are what they represent and how incredibly stupid and crazy fuckers they are….and it put a really tight lid on Trumps presidential coffin at the expense of the lives and careers of a few Capitol police officers…I am sure it was discussed and considered to just let the riot run its course and what would be the consequences of that.
