(PoliticalLookout.com)- On Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump held what could have been his final Cabinet meeting…at least, his final one for a while. The meeting was held without the presence of some notable figures, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Attorney General William Barr.
Pompeo had a good excuse not to attend, having been exposed to COVID-19 and currently going through his quarantine period. Attorney General Barr did too, having recently announced his resignation, which will be effective as of December 23.
The cabinet meeting was the 25th of his four-year presidency. In comparison, President Barack Obama held just 19 meetings during his first term.
No press coverage was allowed of the meeting, and the president also didn’t appear to invite other high-profile officials. These included Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller, Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, and CIA Director Gina Haspel.
It was remarkably different from other meetings hosted by the president, where reporters and TV cameras were allowed into the meeting to cover their discussion for at least 30 minutes. It suggests that the last meeting of his first term was a more private affair, discussing personal matters or even sensitive plans to ensure election integrity.
The president’s work to ensure election integrity and find a legal remedy for the election of Joe Biden based on a compromised election has not been universally popular even among his own party, with many Republicans urging the president to back down.
However, damning evidence of election fraud – including data analysis, witness testimony, and video footage – means the president continues to push forward in opposing a Joe Biden administration.
On Friday, the president thanked Senator-Elect Tommy Tuberville for suggesting that he will object to Electoral College votes on January 6 during a joint session of Congress.

Tuberville is expected to join with Rep. Mo Brooks, also a Republican, in rejecting the Electoral College votes which could result in the next president of the United States being decided in a vote in Congress.
Brooks already has support in the House to force the chamber to vote for the next president but required a Senator to get on board with the plan. With Tuberville on board, it means it’s likely to happen…and rumors are swirling that Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz might support the effort to.
It would be done in opposition to calls by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who warned Republicans not to fight.
Could the president have been discussing this dramatic revelation during the final cabinet meeting of his term?
