"As things are today, January 20th will not be an inauguration, but rather the end of the United States as an independent country," Olbermann argued on "The Resistance with Keith Olbermann," which began earlier this year.

"It will not be a peaceful change of power. It will be a usurpation, and the usurper has no validity, no credibility and no authority under the Constitution.”
