The 2020 election will be an event like no other in American history.
This is one of the most heated political atmospheres in modern times, with bombastic incumbent Republican President Donald Trump taking on establishment mainstay and former Vice President Joe Biden.
Compounding the already-complex socio-political issues that exist in the United States in 2020 is the coronavirus pandemic, which has made the idea voting in crowded polling places a bit troublesome for the elderly and other “at-risk” demographics.
President Trump has already stated his belief that voting by mail is susceptible to fraud and forgeries, which has set up a fairly bitter fight between Republicans and Democrats on the subject.
And, given that mail-in votes will almost certainly delay the results of the election, there could be weeks of legal battles to come even after the polls close on November 3rd.
President Trump is preparing for that possibility.
Campaign General Counsel Matthew Morgan told Fox News this week that the campaign is urging active and retired attorneys and even law students to volunteer in their nationwide efforts.
“Democrats are working to shred election integrity measures one state at a time, and there’s no question they’ll continue their shenanigans from now to November and beyond,” Morgan told Fox News. “The Trump campaign is fighting to ensure every valid ballot across America counts—once.”
He added that the Lawyers for Trump coalition is growing “daily” and “will rally support for President Trump as they lend their time and legal expertise to protect the integrity of November’s election.”
The coalition is being led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, as well as California Committeewoman Harmeet Dhillon and former Deputy White House Counsel Stefan Passantino. The group includes prominent Trump-allied attorneys like former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, former Attorney General Ed Meese and the president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.
The news comes as the Democrats continue to push a conspiracy theory that says President Trump will attempt to “rig” the election to stay in office.
