Advisers to former President TrumpDonald TrumpUS pushes for talks with North Korea after latest missile launch Democrats topped GOP in raising, spending 'dark money' from undisclosed donors in 2020: report Hutchinson warns fellow GOP governors: Talking about 2020 election a losing strategy MORE drafted another version of an executive order that would have directed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to seize voting machines, CNN reported on Monday, citing multiple sources.

Earlier this month, Politico obtained a draft order from the Trump administration that would have instructed the Department of Defense to seize voting machines.

Now according to multiple sources who spoke with CNN, the Trump administration also drafted another version of that executive order that had the intention of ordering DHS to seize voting machines. CNN reported there were now two versions of the same document.

The idea was spearheaded by retired Col. Phil Waldron and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, CNN's sources said, with one source saying Flynn was committed to the idea of seizing election equipment and personally reached out to a senior defense official for help with the plan.

The Hill has reached out to DHS for comment. 

In December 2020, Flynn suggested in an interview on Newsmax that Trump could deploy the military to “rerun” the 2020 election. During the interview he also publicly floated the idea of Trump seizing all voting machines in the country and then deploying the military to swing states in which he lost.

“He could order, within the swing states if he wanted to, he could take military capabilities and basically rerun an election each in those states,” he said claiming that such an action was “not unprecedented," though the military has never been deployed in a nationwide effort to seize voting machines in U.S. history.

"We've got no evidence at this point that there were steps taken in the Department of Defense to implement that memo but ... it's a lawless document and really breathtaking in its approach," she told the network.

Deep stain: Former RNC chair torches GOP lawmakers trying to distance from Donald Trump

Former Republican National Committee (RNC) chair Michael Steele recently offered a blistering assessment of the political party as its leaders are now attempting to distance themselves from Trumpism.

On Wednesday, November 30, Steele appeared on MSNBC where he discussed the issue with host Joy Reid. Opening the discussion, Reid began with remarks about former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago dinner with far-right influencer, Nick Fuentes.

"The story is the creeping white nationalism that has infected the party that all of these people support, the party that has invited hate and fear of fellow Americans as guests to Thanksgiving dinner,” she said, adding, "And until they kick this ideology out and not just slap Trump around a little bit because he lost them elections, I mean, kicked them out. All the prosecutions in the world won’t make any difference.”

Reid went on to introduce Steele saying:

Joining me now is Michael Steele, MSNBC political analyst, former chair of the Republican National Committee and host of the Michael Steele podcast. And Jason Stanley, professor of philosophy at Yale University and author of How Fascism Works.

And I do want to start with you, Michael, because you used to be in charge of this party. So you know what it means when the creep begins and the creep began with the Tea Party and you had to wrestle with it. But you actually are somebody with integrity and with a mind of your own. Kevin McCarthy, as somebody who’s got to now steer this ship. Let me just play you what who his new boss is.

Reid shifted to a clip featuring Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) introducing Fuentes at a white nationalist event. “Here’s Marjorie Taylor Greene at Nick Fuentes’s event. So if Nick Fuentes is untouchable. Well, she touched. Here she is,” Reid continued

"Do you know what it’s like to be canceled? And that’s why I’m here to talk to you tonight," Greene could be heard saying at the event. "I don’t believe anyone should be canceled. I don’t believe in separating people and identities. I don’t believe in separating people and classes. But that’s what the Democrats believe in, because that’s what Marxism is. That’s what communism is.”

“And she was introduced by Fuentes at that event,” Reid emphasized.

Steele wasted no time offering a critical opinion on the direction of the political party he once led. “Yeah. Which is that’s just a load of crap. It’s total B.S," Steele said. "So she doesn’t want to cancel people and she doesn’t want to break people off into these different classes or whatever. Then why are you calling your fellow Republicans RINOs?”

He added, "Why are you, why are you separating those of us who have been stalwarts of Lincoln, Reagan, Eisenhower, Bush Republicanism as something as a pariah?

"So, you know, just cut the act. You’re hanging out with the people who represent your values and your interest. When you show up at a Fuentes event that says more about you than it does Fuentes, because we know who he is. We know what that is. So now your embrace of it says a lot about you."

Steele also shared an "ugly truth" about the Republican Party in its current state. "But here’s the ugly, dirty little rub, Joy, is that the leadership of the Republican Party refuses to reject it, refuses to say that’s not us, MTG, Margaret, whatever, Marjorie Taylor Greene, whatever we want to call you, you’re not going those to those events anymore," he said. "You’re going to go out and you’re going to reject that."

Expressing concern about the efforts to distance from Trump, Steele said, "You don’t hear that narrative emerging from within the leadership. They want all of us at this point to fixate on, ‘We’re past Trump, right? We’re no longer doing Trump. Trump. Oh Trump was bad. Oh, this bright, shiny object down in Florida. Let’s focus on that in Governor DeSantis.’"

He added, "But I’m sorry you don’t get to wipe that stain off your clean white shirt that easily because that’s a deep stain. January 6th was a deep stain. Embracing Fuentes was a deep stain. While you may not have done so directly, the leader of your party did. And as the head of your party and as a leader on the Hill or representing the party across the country at the state level, if you don’t reject that, then that’s you, baby."

Steele concluded his argument saying, "And those of us who reject it have tried to be very clear about that. But here we are.”
