Transition Integrity Project co-founder suggests that if Trump wins the election, there will be widespread chaos

WASHINGTON DC – These “bipartisan groups” sure are becoming more and more interesting, aren’t they?

Rosa Brooks, co-founder of the Transition Integrity Project (TIP), which is a bi-partisan group that some argue is hell bent on stopping President Trump from being elected.

Interestingly, she’s reportedly sent over $5,000 to Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden’s campaign, in addition to writing a 22 page report on what will happen if Trump is elected.

Brooks is once again drawing attention as she has been writing countless op-ed pieces that summarize the 22-page report that TIP released which states that if Biden-Harris do not win the election by a landslide, it will be catastrophic and will result in “violence in the streets” and a “constitutional impasse.” 

It is no surprise that Brooks does not want President Trump to be re-elected, considering days after his inauguration, she wrote an article advocating for his swift removal from office, and even went as far as to suggest the military not follow orders. 

Brooks, who served as a senior adviser at the State Department under both the Obama and Clinton administrations, wrote in Foreign Policy magazine only ten days after President Trump’s inauguration, discussing four different ways to get rid of the new president. 

According to Breitbart News, it previously reported on Brooks’ essay in Foreign Policy magazine, titled “3 Ways to Get Rid of President Trump Before 2020,”. 

In the article, Brooks repeatedly and deliberately questions Trump’s mental stability throughout, claiming that the president’s first week in office:

“has made it all too clear: Yes, he is as crazy as everyone feared.”

Brooks wrote:

“Remember those optimistic pre-inauguration fantasies? I cherished them, too. You know: “Once he’s president, I’m sure he’ll realize it doesn’t really make sense to withdraw from all those treaties.

“Once he’s president, surely he’ll understand that he needs to stop tweeting out those random insults.

“Once he’s president, he’ll have to put aside that ridiculous campaign braggadocio about building a wall along the Mexican border. 

“Nope. In his first week in office, Trump has made it eminently clear that he meant every loopy, appalling word — and then some.”

Brooks goes on to list four ways to oust a “crummy” president:

  • Elect him out of office after his four-year term. “But after such a catastrophic first week, four years seems like a long time to wait,” she wrote.
  • Impeachment. However, she lamented, “impeachments take time: months, if not longer — even with an enthusiastic Congress. And when you have a lunatic controlling the nuclear codes, even a few months seems like a perilously long time to wait.”
  • Utilizing a claim of mental instability to invoke the 25th Amendment of the Constitution, which sets the path for the commander-in-chief’s removal if the “president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”
  • A military coup. She writes: “The fourth possibility is one that until recently I would have said was unthinkable in the United States of America: a military coup, or at least a refusal by military leaders to obey certain orders.”

When discussing her suggested military coup, Brooks manifests ways that she fears Trump might try to play out:

“What would top U.S. military leaders do if given an order that struck them as not merely ill-advised, but dangerously unhinged?

An order that wasn’t along the lines of “Prepare a plan to invade Iraq if Congress authorizes it based on questionable intelligence,” but “Prepare to invade Mexico tomorrow!” or “Start rounding up Muslim Americans and sending them to Guantánamo!” or “I’m going to teach China a lesson — with nukes!”

Brooks then goes on to discuss the invoking of the 25th Amendment, saying:

“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore [or, “president for a time”] of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

“Surely Pence wants to be president himself one day, right?” Brooks writes. “Pence isn’t exactly a political moderate — he’s been unremittingly hostile to gay rights, he’s a climate change skeptic, etc. — but, unappealing as his politics may be to many Americans, he does not appear to actually be insane. (This is the new threshold for plausibility in American politics: ‘not actually insane.’)”

Breitbart News reported that on the same day they reported on her essay, Brooks posted on Twitter:

“Breitbart is after me, claiming I’m urging a military coup. How do I know? Sudden uptick in illiterate, obscenity-laced tweets and emails.”

Four days later, Brooks tweeted:

“And Then the Breitbart Lynch Mob Came for Me!”

Given Brooks’ outspoken and blatant hatred for President Trump, it seems only natural that she is now spearheading TIP’s 22-page report, titled “Preventing a Disrupted Presidential Election and Transition,” which discusses how only a Biden win can prevent violence and chaos.

As Breitbart News reported, Brooks recently penned a piece in the Washington Post based on the TIP conclusion that only “a landslide for Joe Biden” assured a “relatively orderly transfer of power.”

Brooks writes:

“President Trump has broken countless norms and ignored countless laws during his time in office, and while my colleagues and I at the Transition Integrity Project didn’t want to lie awake at night contemplating the ways the American experiment could fail, we realized that identifying the most serious risks to our democracy might be the best way to avert a November disaster.

So we built a series of war games, sought out some of the most accomplished Republicans, Democrats, civil servants, media experts, pollsters and strategists around, and asked them to imagine what they’d do in a range of election and transition scenarios.

“A landslide for Joe Biden resulted in a relatively orderly transfer of power. Every other scenario we looked at involved street-level violence and political crisis.” 

Similar to her first anti-trip piece, Brooks detailed “four scenarios” the project explored:

“a narrow Biden win; a big Biden win with a decisive lead in both the electoral college and the popular vote; a Trump win with an electoral college lead but a large popular-vote loss, as in 2016; and finally, a period of extended uncertainty as we saw in the 2000 election.”

Brooks then goes on to write, how she feels a Trump win will look:

“In the “Trump win” scenario, desperate Democrats — stunned by yet another election won by the candidate with fewer votes after credible claims of foreign interference and voter suppression — also sought to send rival slates of electors to Congress.

They even floated the idea of encouraging secessionist movements in California and the Pacific Northwest unless GOP congressional leaders agreed to a series of reforms, including the division of California into five smaller states to ensure better Senate representation of its vast population, and statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico.”
