Donald Trump’s lawsuits in several key states that allege voter fraud are one by one being tossed out by judges. His Trump train no longer has wheels, but his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, said the Trump campaign still has some plans up its sleeves.
Lara Trump, who is the wife of Donald Trump’s son, Eric, recently appeared on Fox News. During the interview, she stated that the Trump campaign was entertaining the option of getting state legislators to subvert the democratic process.
Lara Trump says “that’s a possibility” and “we’re open to anything” when asked if they would go to state legislators in an effort to have them switch to pro-Trump electors.
Lara Trump pushed her father-in-law’s baseless claims of widespread voter fraud during the interview. Several judges that ruled on Trump’s lawsuits over alleged voter fraud were furious their time was wasted on meaningless lawsuits. The Trump campaign did not provide a single ounce of evidence to back up its claims.
Now it appears that Donald Trump is desperate to stay in power so that he isn’t labeled a “loser” or “sucker” that he is willing to try and convince state legislators to turn their backs on their voters and defy the electoral college system.
Lara Trump went on to state that the 74 million people who voted for Trump are angry now at the results. She added that she does not believe that there is any honest way that Joe Biden could have received 80 million votes because only a dozen or so people showed up for his campaign events.
She went on to reject the claims by her husband (Eric Trump) and brother-in-law (Donald Trump Jr.) that “feelings” should not cloud Americans’ decisions. She stated that the intense passion of her father-in-law’s supporters should make anyone skeptical of the election results.
“Last time I checked the people were still in charge of the United States of America and there are about 74 million people out there who do not feel like the result of this election that’s been presented is accurate,” she told Fox News.
“And I think it’s very hard for people to rationalize that a guy like Joe Biden who could barely scrape together 12 people to go to a campaign event for him, even a couple of weeks ago, suddenly somehow got around 80 million votes. Donald Trump gained 10 million votes from 2016, we all were out working across the country hard, you saw that tens of thousands of people would come to Trump events and then like 12 to 20 people showing up to a Joe Biden event,” she continued.
Biden did have low turnouts at his campaign events, but it wasn’t because people did not want to attend. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Biden limited the number of people who could attend and the events were mostly “drive-in” where people could stay safely inside their vehicles if they chose
It appears that Lara Trump has political aspirations of her own. She is said to be considering a 2022 run for Senate in North Carolina.
Long time Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz chimed in with some thoughts on the current state of this presidential contest recently as well about incumbent President Donald Trump still refusing to concede the race to Democrat Joe Biden.
During an interview, Dershowitz laid out the Trump campaign’s legal strategy for winning the White House through a number of legal challenges. He added the strategy is to pull electoral votes away from Biden.
Plus announced, “The clock is a double-edged sword in this election because if they don’t have enough time but if they can put forward a sufficiently strong case then they may be able to get some Republican Secretaries of States or legislatures to say, ‘Look, we just don’t have enough time to certify these electors’ and if they can bring down the number of electors, 35 [to] 37, from the 305 and bring it down to 267 or 268 then the election goes to the House, where the Republicans win.”
The attorney served as a member of Trump’s defense counsel during his impeachment trial. The president charged with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress as well. Trump was acquitted on both counts earlier this year.
Last weekend, Dershowitz had argued, “Let’s look at the big picture: The big picture now has shifted. I do not believe that President Trump is now trying to get to 270 electoral votes. I think he thinks that’s out of the question.” And stated, “If he can keep the Biden count below 270, then the matter goes to the House of Representatives.”
Trump has requested recounts in several states. Yet doesn’t appear to be making much progress in his efforts.
In order for these cases to make their way to the Supreme Court, Dershowitz said “the numbers have to be there.” “If that happens, then yes, it will go to the Supreme Court. I think at least under the Constitutional challenge, the Article 2 challenge in Pennsylvania, they have a pretty good chance of winning,” he told.
Even though ex-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani expressed that was part of their plan, Trump’s team took a hit Wednesday. A federal judge canceled the planned evidentiary hearing on Trump’s challenge in Pennsylvania.
Just the latest in a string of setbacks. Judge Matthew Brann instead gave the Trump campaign until 5 p.m. to respond to a defense motion to dismiss the case. It seems as the losses begin to mount, the president’s chances only diminish.
