be elected by the House of Representatives. Intriguingly, this happens not with a simple vote of its members, which would see Biden anointed. In this extraordinary circumstance – explained on my show AMERICA First by Steve Bannon, former CEO of the 2016 Trump campaign – it is the delegations of each state that would choose the president. Right now, the Republican-led state delegations of the House outnumber the Democratic-led delegations by more than 20 votes, which would mean a second term for Donald Trump.
how states such as Pennsylvania should guarantee that only legitimate ballots are counted. In a Byzantine and clearly political decision (expertly analyzed here by Fox News commentator Andy McCarthy), Chief Justice Roberts maneuvered the court in such a way as to punt the question until after the election, at which point it was, of course, irrelevant. Amazingly, Associate Justice Samuel Alito stepped in by himself on the Friday after the election. In his capacity as a federal circuit court judge, Alito ordered Pennsylvania not to co-mingle ballots that arrived after November 3 with the rest of the votes. At one point, the Trump campaign complained that the local sheriff was refusing to let their election watchers into centers where the ballots were counted. Although campaign lawyers later acknowledged that Republicans witnesses were inside the center, the judge’s order did require city officials to allow the election monitors to stand closer to the counters. The president and his team have an uphill battle to obtain meaningful legal redress before the December deadline. Judges should be driven exclusively by the law, but they are reluctant to overturn election results, no matter what the evidence. The best Team Trump can pray for is a strategy to make certification of key states technically impossible so that Camp Biden’s claim of a 270-plus Electoral College mandate is eroded before the final December vote. Should that strategy succeed, according to the U.S. Constitution, the president must
Since November 3, all the president has asked for is that all legal and legitimate votes be counted. All Americans should want that and should agree with that legitimate demand. America should not be counting unverified ballots behind closed doors.
The chances of the latter scenario occurring are slim. But as someone who has worked for President Trump, if anyone can make this happen, it’s the man known as “The Closer”... a man who will fight until the bitter end. And why shouldn’t he? Since November 3, all the president has asked for is that all legal and legitimate votes be counted. All Americans should want that and should agree with that legitimate demand. America should not be counting unverified ballots behind closed doors. We are not Venezuela – yet.
