Lawyer Trump continues to insist on winning by landslide after GSA allowed Biden to transition


President Donald Trump’s legal adviser continued to claim that the presidential election was “stolen,” and Trump did win after the official process of electing president-elect Joe Biden began.

Trump’s attorney Jenna Ellis made remarks on MSNBC during Monday night’s appearance A Beat with Ari Melber. Ellis answered a question from presenter Ari Melber, who asked what the “essence” of the ongoing legal challenges is, given that there are no acceptable ways to overturn the election results, and the General Services Directorate (GSA) has officially “established” that Biden was the “apparently elected president.”

“Well, the point of this, of course, is to get fair and accurate results because the election was stolen and President Trump won an overwhelming victory,” Ellis said. “Let’s not forget that President Bush lost in each of the lower court stages before he ended up Bush v. Gore he went to the Supreme Court. “

Although former President George W. Bush eventually won Florida and the president by 537 votes after the Supreme Court’s post-2000 election decision, the situation was much different from what Trump is currently facing.

After the first counting of votes in Florida was completed in 2000, the vote gap between former Vice President Bush and Al Gore was always less than 2,000, and then narrowed in subsequent recountings.

No recount in American history has changed the number of votes needed for Trump to turn even a state, Biden’s smallest leadership still exceeds 10,000 votes. In Georgia, a manual recount was carried out, with Biden still leading the state with more than 12,000 votes before the winner was officially confirmed.

The Trump campaign called for a second Georgian recount, although the result is almost certain to be the same. In any case, Trump would have to decide the election results in at least three states to retain the presidency.

Trump and his allies have launched dozens of legal challenges, almost all of which have so far been quickly dismissed or dismissed. Most challenges would not have nullified enough votes even if the results had been overturned, even if a judge had ruled in Trump’s favor.

Ellis ’remarks suggest that the unlikely legal effort will continue, while Trump himself suggested this in a tweet just before his release. Trump insisted he would “prevail” in further legal battles despite suggesting that the GSA issue the letter to Emily Murphy and allow the transition to begin.

According to CNN’s Manu Raju, Chuck Schumer, the Senate’s minority leader, Chuck Schumer, gave the president’s tweet “probably the closest thing a discount could have been issued by President Trump.”

While Ellis insists Trump won a “landslide,” in fact, Biden’s victory seems decisive. The president-elect received about 80 million votes nationwide, more than 6 million more than Trump. Trump leads the Electoral College, which is important in all respects, against 306 votes to 232 votes, and 270 is needed to win the presidency.
