In an interview with Fox News on Saturday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said that the Trump campaign is dedicated to taking every legal step available to challenge the widespread “systemic voter fraud” that cost the president the election.
“We have 234 affidavits in Michigan, of voters in one county saying this is what I observed. We have voters in Pennsylvania saying ‘I showed up to vote, was told I couldn’t cast my ballot because there is a mail-in ballot that was cast on my behalf that wasn’t cast by me,’” McEnany said.
McEnany told the hosts of “Fox & Friends” that Trump’s legal team will present “real systemic claims” to federal judges.
“Our justice system is where that will play, and that is something that the media cannot get in the way of. They can try to hide it, but the American people are smart. The 73 million people who showed up to vote for this president — the most-ever votes for a sitting president — they have a voice. We will be heard,” she said. “The Tea Party movement made their voice heard, the Trump movement is now making our voice heard, and, again, we don’t need the media by our side, we can do it without them.”
McEnany said that the campaign’s lack of success in the lower courts was immaterial.
“We’ve got to continue fighting this, and the federal courts are the path and, hopefully, up to the Supreme Court, ” McEnany said, “Because voter fraud is real, and they seized on a pandemic and created an electoral epidemic — one that was inexcusable, a system that should never have happened.”
In an interview with Newsmax this weekend, Trump lawyer Sidney Powell said that she was set to expose a “biblical” voter fraud case in court this week.
“We’ve got tons of evidence; it’s so much, it’s hard to pull it all together,” Powell said. “Hopefully this week we will get it ready to file, and it will be biblical. It’s a massive project to pull this fraud claim together with the evidence that I want to put in. You name the manner of fraud and it occurred in Georgia.”
The Trump team doesn’t lack for confidence, but the electoral clock is ticking. At some point, they are going to have to not only present a winning case in court – but a case that actually has a material effect on the outcome of the election.
