The nightmare scenario

It's Wednesday, November 4, 2020.

The Democratic candidate has won the Presidential election by a small margin. Trump and the GOP claim massive fraud, without evidence, and refuse to hand over power. The Democrats take it to court, and it quickly goes to the conservative-dominated Supreme Court.

The armed forces, meanwhile, have taken an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

What do they do? Who do they obey?

Who will be the legally constituted authority after Jan. 20, 2021?
