Given that the Republican Party has on multiple occasions over the last 10 years shown complete contempt for anything vaguely resembling the rule of law and civilized norms, and instead has exploited every opportunity to seize power in defiance of accepted procedures, it seems naive to imagine that a similar scenario will not play out in the event that Trump doesn't win by a landslide in November. The Democrats, of course, will stand on the sidelines incapable of meaningful action in the face of what has and continues to be a constitutional coup d'etat.
