(Studio: Anderson Cooper) A Keeping Them Honest look at the "serious abuse of the judicial process" by President Trump in challenging the election results in the courts introduced; details given about the suit to overturn the results in four states. [In Georgia, Vice President Mike PENCE - says he deserves his day in the Supreme Court.] [Representative Jim JORDAN - says somehow Joe Biden gets 80 million votes: a stolen election.] The popular vote totals outlined on screen.

[Sunday, TRUMP - charges "midnight vote dumps."] What Senator Jon Cornyn is saying about the legal theory noted. [Representative Adam KINZIGER - says we have tribalized, dehumanized.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; New York: Maggie Haberman) Why Trump is considering continuing this with his circle of support getting smaller, but his history has been to sue, how there is doubt the Supreme Court will hear this case so this is a show of force & about power, on the "grim" mood in the White House with staffers avoiding the Oval Office with his aim being to deliegitimize Biden, how most Texas officials are saying there is no legal basis for the lawsuit that wants to invalidate votes in four states discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Rick Santorum & Paul Begala. [SANTORUM - offers views on how the vote should have been checked & a compelling case was put together except for the conspiracy theories; goes on about the Georgia case.] [BEGALA - offers views on what is going on in Georgia so strategists cannot cross Trump, on how it will be laughed out of the courts but it could threaten democracy.]
