Legally speaking, the presidential election hasn’t happened yet.

And that’s what death threat-hurling liberals are betting on, resorting to potential violence in an illegal bid to rig the Electoral College vote.

One of their targets is 22-year-old Michigan Republican Michael Banerian, the Detroit News reports.

Banerian has been inundated with pleas from supporters of Hillary Clinton to switch his votes.

But others have contacted him with explicit promises to kill him should he cast his vote for Trump.

“You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die,’ ” he tells the News. “I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive.”

Other Michigan Republican electors report receiving threats.

“Hearing from them that they are also receiving threats, I’m interested in getting a consensus from the group … and seeing if it’s something that we should report to the police,” Michigan Republican Party spokeswoman Sarah Anderson tells the News. “It’s obviously something that we’re taking very seriously.”

Banerian says he will not be intimidated and will cast his vote for Trump.

The death threats are a long-shot bid to deny Trump the presidency, to which he legally has not yet been elected.

On Nov. 8 Americans went to the polls to elect representatives to the Electoral College.

Each state is awarded a specific number of electors, and each presidential campaign nominates that people to be electors who represent their candidate.

On Dec. 19, those electors will gather at their respective state capitols to actually hold the presidential election.

Based on the Nov. 8 vote, 290 electors are from the campaign of Republican Donald Trump. 203 electors are from the campaign of Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Michigan has not completed tabulating its ballots, but its 16 electors appear to have been won by Trump.

While electors are free to vote for whomever they want, “faithless electors” are rare because campaigns tend to nominate staunch supporters for the exclusive role of presidential elector.

Some states have laws on the books that would punish faithless electors, but they are generally regarded to be unconstitutional.

    Maybe the electors should also be concealed-carry holders?

    • I-RIGHT-I

      They voted for Trump, duh. lol We all carry.

  • ClarenceDeBarrows

    Punishing electors who are “faithless” is “unconstitutional”? Interesting comment on the values of our times.

  • jk

    Death threats from the left MUST BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY, They will follow thru.

      Specially under the Clinton power. So many under the Clinton, have disappeared mysteriously. Many were reported as suicide or accidental death. This is very dangerous. Trump must be very vigilant about them.

  • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw

    Hillary Clinton has just finished physically assaulting and beating her campaign manager Mook, and also Podesta the campaign director. Her temper is above the roof, and it is good she did not win. Definitely she is not qualified to be president. She now looks so ugly after accumulating so much anger and stress, why the illegal aliens only voted 3,000,000 for her. She blamed that the campaign manager, who could strategize spreading the ILLEGAL ALIENS VOTES TO ALL STATES.
    She still did not win after so many FRAUDULENTS votes were cast to elect her.
    There are the illegal aliens voted several millions. Dead people voted; convicted criminals voted, Soros machines voted for her; busses were used to transport voters to various counties and cities so they could vote several times for thousands of absentee ballots; , Acorn going to old folks home to require the old folks sign their ballots for Hillary Clinton, and etc. But still Hillary did not win. She blamed Comey. She should have blamed Lynch for requiring Comey not to submit her for conviction. She should have been convicted, but Comey reporting under Lynch, obeyed the illegal Lunch instructions not to convict Hillary.

    The American people are so tired of her lies and Obama’s lies!

    • I-RIGHT-I

      Give the woman a break she’s known since The Don showed up that if she didn’t win she was going to spend the rest of her life in prison or trying to stay out. I am so happy for me and you.

      • S. Plankenberg

        Trump announced today he will not persue having her prosecuted.

        I TOLD EVERYONE SO!
        I TOLD EVERYONE SO!
        I TOLD EVERYONE SO!

        • I-RIGHT-I

          I’m pretty certain he got our memo on that and prosecutions will be forthcoming. It will be hers or his, one of the two.

          • S. Plankenberg

            There will be no prosecutions.

  • ncgal

    Soros is an evil old man and should be thrown out of the USA.

  • ncgal

    Soros is backing these people I think. He’s an evil old man. He needs to leave the USA. We don’t need him here.

    • cmi

      He REALLY needs to leave this world!!!!

    • Name

      One of the first things Trump needs to do is have Soros arrested and extradited to Russia

  • I-RIGHT-I

    If Trump doesn’t hang these people we need to hang him (after a fair and speedy trial of course) and get somebody in there that will.

    • S. Plankenberg

      Trump doesn’t have the authority to hang anyone.

      Stop being silly.

      You are not presenting the proper conservative image of realistic pragmatism.

      • I-RIGHT-I

        Don’t be silly yourself, compassionate conservatism and sloppy sentimentality only gets us screwed and pragment.

        • S. Plankenberg

          You are mistaken.
          I am NOT a compassionate conservative, or sloppily sentimental.

          I think most of the Obamus administration should be in prison, and illegal border crossers should be shot at every oppotunity, with monthly awards given to Border Agents with the body counts, and special marksmanship medals given for the longest shot of the month.

          • I-RIGHT-I

            Reasonable men can disagree but if you want to be right you’ll agree with me! I don’t like pragmatism because it isn’t “properly conservative” but, it is exactly what got us here in the first place and is the philosophy of our demise and the UniParty so, there’s that.
            Trump will either hang the traitors of our country (after a fair and speedy trial of course) or we’ll hang him (after a fair and speedy trial of course) and get somebody in there that will uphold the law of the land and protect our country.

            What ever happens
            We have got
            The 2nd Amendment guys
            And they (whomever “they” really are)
            Have not

            The rules of the American Experiment are clear; “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

            -an old dead White guy who owned slaves and had an excellent wine cellar.

          • S. Plankenberg

            I say again, the President does not have the authority to charge or hang anyone.
            Look it up.

            BTW, the poetic analogy taken from the British poem about the Maxim gun did not go over my head.

  • Tamara Wilhite

    Yes, it should be reported to the police and every law enforcement agency possible. It is more than a death threat but extortion with the intent of affecting the election.

  • Name

    Every threat should be investigated and charges filed. Rioters need to be arrested and charged. And to insure fair judgement all jurist should be Trump supporters.

  • A_patriot

    This is purely out-of-control. I blame our current resident of the oval office for NOT acting to quell the RIOTS. (And, in fact, from Germany he told them to March On.) :O We, as a people, have the Right to PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY. But, this is no longer peaceful. In fact I’m inclined to believe what they are inciting is suborning the Constitution. Seems they don’t like that the Majority HAS SPOKEN. They need to lick their collective wounds and get over it. We endured their ideology for close to eight years. What did we reap? Mostly lawlessness, no jobs, increased welfare recipients and higher premiums on our health insurance!

  • libby

    Trump protects his voters.
    Hilary uses and kills hers.

  • RLTMLT

    I’m a Trump supporter but the Donald needs to stay off Twitter and Facebook, he’s only giving the corrupt Liberal Press more ammunition to continue their one sided assault ! The election is over and totally ignoring these Liberal Marxists, who have chosen open revolt in the streets, will cause them far more pain than any spoken or written rebuttal. Once DT is officially in office he can deliver the ultimate blow by reactivating the Military Draft, there are many on both sides of the isle in Congress that have suggested that over the past 43 years !
