If you can’t beat him, cheat him and that is exactly what Democrats are looking to do because they have little chance of preventing the reelection of President Trump next November with their dismal slate of candidates.
The implosion of the collusion delusion has left the so-called resistance scrambling to find something in the Mueller report that will resuscitate the corpse of the greatest witch hunt in American political history to prove that Trump obstructed justice.
While House Dems like Elijah Cummings, Adam Schiff and “Fat Jerry” Nadler redouble their efforts to find hidden messages in Mueller’s dud on which to base their own investigations, others are seeking to drastically alter the rules before voters go to the polls next November.
Efforts have been ongoing to put the kibosh on the Electoral College with multiple states joining together for something called the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact that seems to be seriously unconstitutional and will almost certainly end up before the Supreme Court if they try to pull it off.
Democrats are also going back to their failed anti-Trump strategies from the last election by once again going after the president’s tax returns. Some of the 2020 candidates have already released their own returns but that’s only lemming food because none of them have presided over a multi-billion dollar global business empire.
With Trump’s taxes now once again on the agenda items for the attackers, numerous Democrat-controlled states are pushing to block the incumbent from the ballot if he does not release his returns which would seem to be pretty anti-democratic by pretty much anyone’s standards.
Currently, there are nearly twenty states that are trying to rig the game against Trump and therefore disenfranchise millions of their own residents in the process.

According to Big League Politics, “Democrats Push to Throw Trump Off 2020 Ballot in 18 States”:
Now that FBI spook Robert Mueller’s Russian collusion investigation is over and yielded no evidence implicating President Trump, Democrats have moved onto Trump’s tax returns as the bogeyman threatening our electoral integrity.
Democratic-run states are even willing to jeopardize the integrity of the 2020 presidential election over their new witch hunt against the President. Eighteen liberal states are threatening to remove Trump from the ballot in 2020 if he does not release his tax returns.

Additional details via the self-proclaimed “most trusted name in news” CNN, “State lawmakers move to require tax returns from presidential candidates — including Trump”:
As President Donald Trump continues to resist requests for his tax returns from Democrats in Washington, state lawmakers are moving to require him to release his financial information if he wants to run for president again in 2020.
Lawmakers in 18 states across the country, including New York, Illinois and Washington, have introduced bills that would require all presidential candidates and their running mates to release their individual tax returns in order to qualify for the presidential primary ballot, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
The latest is in Illinois, where state senators approved a bill this month that would require presidential candidates and their running mates to release personal tax returns for at least the five most recent years in exchange for access to the state’s 2020 ballot. It’s unclear whether the measure will succeed in the Illinois House or if the state’s Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker would sign the bill if it passes.
And, according to the National Conference Of State Legislatures:
“As of February 20, 2017 legislators in 18 states (Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia) have introduced bills” to require “future presidential candidates to disclose income tax returns in order to be placed on the general election ballot.”
There is a word for this sort of thing and that word is COLLUSION!
Whether they are able to get away with it without provoking a full-blown revolt remains to be seen.
