Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even TRIPLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go three times as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

Isolated at the White House, Trump Makes Last-Ditch Effort to Overturn 2020 Election

HeadlineDec 22, 2020

On Monday, Trump and Vice President Mike Pence held a private meeting with a group of Republican lawmakers, including Congressmember Mo Brooks of Alabama, to discuss ways to overturn the Electoral College results in January. The conspiracy theorist lawyer Sidney Powell was also back at the White House for her third visit in four days.

Meanwhile, televangelist Pat Robertson has urged President Trump to retire, saying he believes Joe Biden won the election.

Pat Robertson: “The president still lives in an alternate reality. He really does. People say, 'Well, he lies about this, that and the other.' But, no, he isn’t lying. To him, that’s the truth. … He is very erratic. And he’s fired people, and he’s fought people, and he’s insulted people and keeps going down the line. So, it’s a mixed bag. And I think it would be well to say, ’You’ve had your day, and it’s time to move on.’”

Robertson represents millions of evangelicals around the country, some of the strongest of the base of President Trump.
