For weeks now, the nation understood that we would reach a point in which we would be forced to characterize President Trump’s chances at overturning the 2020 election as “a long shot”. On this already-profound Monday, we may be ready to make that call.
First and foremost, as the liberal left on social media will gladly point out for you, today is the day in which the electoral college will cast their votes, and there are very few who believe that some surprise is waiting in the wings of this process. Once this move is complete, it will be a mere formality for Congress to certify the results and effectively end the lawful recourses available to President Trump.
That’s one reason for the long shot designation.
The other reason might just be the latest announcement from Stephen Miller, longtime White House adviser, who has indicated a scenario in which “alternate electors” will be chosen, and then engaged, should one of the President’s legal challenges be deemed worthy of court-time before January 20th.
President Trump’s allies are preparing to send an “alternate” slate of electors to Congress, senior White House adviser Stephen Miller said Monday, signaling Trump will drag out his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election even after the Electoral College certifies Joe Biden as the winner.
Miller, appearing on Fox News as a senior adviser to the Trump campaign, brushed off the idea that the Electoral College vote marked any kind of end to the process.
“The only date in the Constitution is Jan. 20. So we have more than enough time to right the wrong of this fraudulent election result and certify Donald Trump as the winner of the election,” Miller said on “Fox & Friends.”
“As we speak, today, an alternate slate of electors in the contested states is going to vote and we’re going to send those results up to Congress,” he continued. “This will ensure that all of our legal remedies remain open. That means that if we win these cases in the courts, that we can direct that the alternate state of electors be certified.”
This would be an unprecedented situation, and undoubtedly a controversial one as well…especially as several prominent Republicans have already distanced themselves from the President’s ongoing electoral battle.
