The Fruit of the Political Poisonous Tree Theory
I have a riddle that will put a smile on your face or rage in your heart just trying to figure it out. So up front aren’t you glad I’m not an attorney?
Let me make my case that both the General Election and the Electoral College votes were either fraudulent or illegally obtained based on the metaphor of the Fruit of the Poisonous Tree theory that if the election “tree” is tainted, so is its fruit “fraudulent ballots”.
The FOTPT theory extends the exclusionary rule to make evidence inadmissible in court if it was derived from evidence that was illegally obtained and as the metaphor suggests, if the evidential “tree” is tainted, so is its “fruit”.
I have seen both video and documentation in the form of biased reporting that convince me beyond a shadow of doubt that the hardcore numbers recorded on election night had been “massaged” for lack of a nicer term for “rigged” and assuming that the General Election could be proven in a court of law with a judge and 12 peers that the election totals had been fraudulently obtained it would mean that fraudulent ballots (votes) would have to be excluded, right?
Now bear with me for a moment. Also assuming this happened and the election results were overturned would that make POTUS 45’s term a continuation or since POTUS 46 has already been sworn into the presidency would #45 then become #47?
What would happen should #46 to be replaced under the 25th Amendment making VP #49 being sworn in as POTUS #47, would that then make #45 become #48 or revert back to #45?
This entire line of thinking would become mute when POTUS #45s 2nd Impeachment begins next week, should he be convicted and banned from running for any elected office ever again.
However, should #46 become replaced under the 25th or be impeached, convicted and banned from running for elected office, then VP #49 become POTUS #47? The historical and political firsts this year alone would make all the presidents from George Washington to George Herbert Walker Bush roll over in their graves with disappointment over what has happened in America when you keep normal rational people in isolation or self-quarantine for almost a full year with nothing to do but think about things like this?
