If Trump continues this, how quickly can Congress theoretically come together on a semi-unified front to impeach or otherwise remove him from office before he does immeasurable damage to the country?

Democrats are stealing the election, fraud everywhere, he won all the legal votes, he already claimed victory in PA and MI so he is the winner.

You know, standard presidential stuff.

seems like the media scenario they would like is to call Georgia and Nevada and avoid Arizona altogether. Or Pennsylvania and Nevada.

So 18000 votes left in GA and trumps lead is 3.4K. Very rough math that means 59% of those remaining votes need to be Biden’s.
