Harvard professor Larry Lessig, briefly a Democratic candidate for president last year, says a growing number of electors are considering a plan to thwart Donald Trump.

The constitutional law professor has been offering pro-bono legal advice to Electoral College members through his anti-Trump group Electors Trust.

He told Politico the group has heard from 20 Republicans who are open to defecting from Trump and becoming ‘faithless electors.’

That’s ‘more than half’ the number necessary to keep Trump from becoming president, he said.
