In an editorial titled “At This Critical Time, President Trump Should Take Action”, the well respected Epoch Times urged President Donald Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act to seize and examine evidence of voter fraud in key states and provide a transparent accounting of the 2020 election.
The editorial, published by the entire Epoch Times editorial board, outlines what they view as a fundamental struggle between freedom and communism represented in the 2020 election, quoting President Trump at times to add credence to their statements.
“President Trump has referred to our election system as being under ‘coordinated assault and siege,’ the article explains. The Epoch Times also notes, “On Dec. 5 in Georgia, Trump said of those who want to steal the election, ‘These people want to go further than socialism, they want to go into a communistic form of government, and I have no doubt about it.'”
The Epoch Times also notes that President Trump “has taken an oath to defend the U.S. Constitution, and he has the presidential powers to do so.”

They then make their key argument, that “Trump should use those powers as President to safeguard the future of our Republic and arrest those who have conspired to deprive people of their rights through election fraud.”
“The Insurrection Act enables Trump to use the military to seize the key electoral evidence in contested states and deliver a transparent, accurate accounting of the vote,” the editorial continued. “Our system is in crisis. Trump should act to restore the rule of law.”
“Through opening the books, honesty can defeat fraud. The wishes of the majority of the people will be realized, and the victory sought by communism defeated.”
