The only way Joe Biden stands any chance whatsoever of truly becoming president-elect is if the courts, and more than likely the Supreme Court, decides such after weighing all the evidence, says Trump campaign lawyer Jenna Ellis.
In an op-ed for Fox News, Ellis explained that mainstream media outlets like CNN do not – we repeat, do not – have the authority to decide election outcomes. That job is reserved for the legal system, which exists in this context to ensure that elections are fair and honest.
“We all want to know who will be president for the next four years,” Ellis wrote. “But all Americans should want accurate results above all, no matter who they supported in the race.”
Ellis’ article comes as Trump’s legal team continues to file lawsuit after lawsuit in key battleground states where election fraud appears to have handed Biden questionable victories over President Trump.
Witnesses with signed affidavits have come forward to reveal “voting irregularities” in states like Georgia and Wisconsin, both of which appear to be headed to a recount. Other states like Alaska, Nevada, and Arizona are also still in play.
“As Americans, we should all be able to recognize that our rule of law governs and our election process works accurately,” Ellis adds.
“For President Trump, the Trump 2020 campaign and the Republican National Committee, the rule of law, fundamental fairness, and accuracy in election results are the goals.”
As of this writing, not a single state has certified its election results. That time will come when all legal challenges are fully resolved, a process that will likely take several weeks to complete.
Once this happens, the Electoral College will hold its vote to determine the official outcome followed by Inauguration Day, which is currently scheduled for Jan. 20, 2021.
It is critically important, especially with so many questions still unanswered, that Americans remain patient throughout this time. Rather than jump the gun like CNN and MSNBC have done, news networks need to wait rather than stir the pot.
“Twenty years ago, some news organizations prematurely said Gore won that very close election and would become the next president of the United States,” Ellis further points out about how this has happened before, most recently in the 2000 race between George W. Bush and Al Gore.
“Those news organizations later pulled back their projections.”
Much like what appears to be happening now, the Bush campaign took its legal challenges all the way to the Supreme Court, which ultimately determined that Bush, not Gore, won the election.
“Imagine how different history would have turned out if Bush had simply thrown in the towel as soon as he heard someone on TV say Gore won the race,” Ellis points out.
At no point has the Trump campaign refused efforts to “count every vote,” as leftists have been claiming. Instead, the Trump campaign wants all legal voted to be counted, which is the issue at hand.
Another point of contention, hence the need for litigation, was the refusal of some election officials in certain areas to allow Republican poll challengers to be present during their counts.
Ellis explains that both the Trump and Biden camps “are permitted by law to observe the counting of ballots to ensure honesty and transparency,” though this did not happen in areas where Republican poll watchers were basically told to scram.
In states where the vote counts have the thinnest margins, Ellis and her team are calling for recounts, especially since litigation will take some time to move through the system.
“Biden cannot unify a nation where he just shafted half the population with his blatant fraud,” wrote one commenter at The Epoch Times, which by the way has indicated that it will not call the election until every lawsuit has reached a conclusion.
