Discussing a written demand from Donald Trump to the state of Georgia to decertify the 2020 presidential election results delivered late Friday, a CNN panel on Monday morning said they were baffled that the former president would pull such a stunt while under investigation for election tampering in the state.
Sitting in with "New Day" hosts John Berman and Brianna Keilar, the New York Times' Maggie Haberman and CNN's John Berman tried to wrap their heads around the letter -- expressing surprise that he would put in in writing.
With host Berman quoting the former president's request that stated, "I would respectfully request your department check this and start the process of decertifying the election or whatever the correct legal remedy is, and announce the true winner if true," he asked Haberman what she found interesting about it.
'That it's on paper," she immediately replied. " That's the most interesting thing. Seriously. This is something Donald Trump has been saying for a while. It has been a slow escalation. [MyPillow CEO] Mike Lindell said he would be reinstated in August. Trump was murmuring that and trying to get others to say that out loud when that passed us by, August is over, he focused on decertification in a handful of states in which are not actually audits. They are investigations of some kind that aren't legally binding. Now he's putting this down on paper."
"I spoke to some of his folks over the weekend and the response is this is really, really about boosting his base and he's targeting [Georgia Secretary of State Brad] Raffensperger -- he wants the election to be undone," she continued. "It is not the same as when he was in office and pressuring the secretary of state to do that. Still it's jarring. There are people who believe it, his followers are not going to understand that he might not believe it."
"There are a coupleof big differences," Avlon interjected. "First of all, he is under investigation for election interference. He is continuing to ask for the election to be decertified, trying to interfere with the election. Is this a setup for insanity defense? He is no longer president of the United States, he is not shielded -- not that he ever thinks about whether he is making his lawyer's case more difficult, but he is making it doubly difficult."
"There is a real threat," he added. "I think it increases why there needs to be legal accountability. It's clear he doesn't care. He does not believe he will ever be held accountable and, until someone shows him he's wrong, he will continue."

A volcano in Spain's Canary Islands destroyed houses as it spewed out lava and ash, authorities said Monday, a day after it erupted, forcing some 5,000 people from their homes.
The Cumbre Vieja volcano sent huge plumes of thick black smoke into the sky after it erupted Sunday around 3:00 pm, churning up molten lava that oozed down the mountainside on the island of La Palma.
A regional government spokeswoman told AFP "a number of houses have been destroyed", saying they were still surveying the area to determine how many properties had been engulfed.
Sergio Rodriguez, mayor of the nearby village of El Paso said at least 20 homes were completely destroyed by the volcano.Tupac POINTU AFP
"The lava left absolutely nothing in its path", Rodriguez told TVE broadcaster, saying residents were living in uncertainty.
They will "not be going home for a while, that's for sure", he added.
Spanish media said as many as 100 homes might have been affected.
Cumbre Vieja straddles a ridge in the south of La Palma island, home to around 80,000 people.
Experts had been keeping a close watch on the volcano after observing a recent upsurge in seismic activity and magma displacements.
An earthquake swarm under La Cumbre Vieja began a week ago and since then there had been thousands of tremors, the strongest with a magnitude of nearly four, the Involcan volcanology institute said.

An earthquake swarm is a sequence of seismic events occurring in one place within a relatively short period of time.
On Tuesday, the authorities raised the alert level from green to yellow in certain areas around the volcano.The Cumbre Vieja volcano sent huges plumes of thick black smoke into the sky after it erupted Sunday afternoon DESIREE MARTIN AFP
According to the local government's projections, lava flows from the volcano, located in the centre of La Palma island, were likely to move southwest towards inhabited and wooded areas, before reaching the coast.
The lava flows were moving at about 700 metres per hour, and had a temperature of nearly 1,000 Celsius (1,830 Fahrenheit), according to the Canaries Islands Institute of Volcanology.
People had been asked to stay away from the area in the days leading up to the eruption in the areas surrounding the volcano, which are sparsely populated,
As of Sunday evening, flights to and from the island had not been disrupted, though some 200 members of the security services had been mobilised, including a helicopter as back up.
Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez cancelled a scheduled trip to New York for the United Nations General Assembly after the eruption.
He arrived at the scene late Sunday evening to assess the situation.
"All services are prepared to act in a coordinated fashion," Sanchez wrote on Twitter.
The Canaries, an archipelago of seven islands off northwestern Africa, last recorded a volcanic eruption in 2011, undersea off El Hierro island.
Cumbre Vieja erupted twice in the 20th century -- in 1971 and in 1949.
