It's not over: Why Team Trump continues to fight despite electoral college vote

Newscast Media HOUSTON, TexasDespite the Electoral College voting in favor of Joe Biden earlier this week, Team Trump is unwilling to surrender. Observers have discussed why the Trump legal team is continuing its fight and whether the president and his allies have exhausted all the possibilities to reverse the outcome of the election.

Donald Trump's allies have subjected Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to criticism for turning a blind eye to suspected election fraud and congratulating Joe Biden on Tuesday.

"Mitch, 75,000,000 votes, a record for a sitting President (by a lot). Too soon to give up. Republican Party must finally learn to fight. People are angry!" tweeted President Trump, citing his loyalists.

On 15 December, McConnell recognized Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris as president-elect and vice president-elect, respectively, after the Electoral College voted in their favour. According to the Associated Press, the Senate majority leader privately warned Republican senators against disputing the Electoral College vote when both chambers convene to confirm the results in January 2021.

However, although Joe Biden has presented himself as a "collaborative politician" committed to the idea of "healing the nation", his honeymoon period may not last the winter, the academic suggests.

The healing idea looks good on paper, but America simply can't accept the results based on the “obvious voter fraud”, according to National Security Public Safety Executive Derek Maltz.

"The widespread corruption, failed leadership by influential Republicans, the mainstream media nonsense, and political bias prevented the Trump team from challenging the results effectively", he says. "Even though the president's team presented volumes of evidence to support the massive fraud, the 'biased political machine' in America shut it down".

Martial Law

The idea of President Trump also suspending the Constitution temporarily has been floated by recently-pardoned retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn due to widespread fraud.

Calling former Vice President Joe Biden’s Nov. 3 victory over Trump "fraudulent,” the Ohio-based “We The People Convention” took out a full-page ad in the Washington Times on Tuesday urging Trump to “immediately declare a limited form of Martial Law, and temporarily suspend the Constitution and civilian control of these federal elections, for the sole purpose of having the military oversee a re-vote."

The organization called for the revote to include only registered voters with photo IDs, to be limited to only paper ballots, to be hand counted and with members of both Democrat and Republican parties observing.

“Unfortunately, we are at the point where we can only trust our military to do this because our corrupt political class and courts have proven their inability to act fairly and within the law,” the group argued.  Add Comments >>
