During an interview on Tuesday, Dec. 29, with Newsmax TV host Grant Stinchfield, President Donald Trump team senior adviser, Jenna Ellis, who along with the legal team has conducted several challenges in different states to evidence of voter fraud, spoke about how the president has been deprived of due process.
Ellis said that the courts and their reluctance to listen to the electoral challenges posed by President Trump’s campaign was largely a way of preventing due process.
Referring to the historic case in which the Supreme Court in 2000 ruled on an election dispute between Democratic candidate Al Gore and Republican George W. Bush, Ellis said, “They need to recognize that President Trump absolutely gets the same opportunities to argue his case that President George W. Bush did in 2000.”
“And to treat him differently than every other sitting president in every other election is manifestly unfair according to due process and our Constitution,” she said.
Ellis told Stinchfield that the Supreme Court has engaged in a “dereliction of duty and fidelity to the U.S. Constitution by refusing to take up cases.” So far, President Trump’s campaign continues to file some final cases before the Electoral College vote certification takes place on Jan. 6.
As Newmax pointed out, Ellis said that if the legal challenges do not represent a satisfactory response to President Trump’s campaign, the failure will not be one of his efforts to eradicate election fraud, but rather a “failure of the Supreme Court, the Judicial branch the entire way down.”
Last week, Ellis said President Trump’s legal team would continue to investigate how the 2020 general election was handled even after Congress issues the Electoral College vote count on Jan. 6.
“The American people deserve to know the truth and see all of this come out and so we’re going to continue pursuing those efforts,” Ellis said on a program with radio host Dan Caplis.
“Long term, this absolutely doesn’t end January 6 because this should never ever, ever happen again, throughout the course of America’s history,” Ellis added, who also stressed the need to continue the electoral challenges until Jan. 6, a date of “utmost importance” in order to protect the integrity of the elections in the years to come.
Ellis questioned the Democrats’ participation in the election, noting that they used the pandemic crisis to remove election guarantees by manipulating some of the state’s laws in an effort to influence the results.
“If you care that an election is not stolen in any way, shape, or form, and you care about our system and our Constitution, you will care that we have the appropriate safeguards that are in place,” Ellis added.
