An archaic system that has for centuries held back true democracy in the United States has now fueled violence in the halls of the Capitol itself.
As the dust settled on Capitol Hill, three Michigan Republicans voted to reject the election results—including their own victories.

Threats, racism and an armed protest at an elected official's home are the latest in the rising potential of political violence in Michigan.
After casting doubt on the legitimacy of the election, two-time Republican Senate hopeful John James conceded after the Michigan Board of Canvassers certified the election results.

Efforts by the Trump campaign to cast doubt on the legitimacy and legality of the election have failed in court from Michigan to Arizona.
