President Donald Trump told a Fox News reporter that he believes “the case” for election fraud “has been made” before the American people, and now it will be a process of prosecuting this case, apparently in state legislatures, courtrooms, and potentially before the Supreme Court of the United States.
The Fox News reporter asked the president, “Are you looking to try to change the outcome of the election, or try to make a case to the American people that it wasn’t a fair election?”
“Well I think case has already been made, if you look at the polls,” said the President, interjecting. “It was a rigged election, if you look at the different states, the election was totally rigged.”
The President added, “It’s a disgrace to our country, it’s like a third world country, these ballots pouring in from everywhere using machinery that nobody knows, ownership nobody knows anything about.”
“They have glitches, as they call them, glitches, the glitches weren’t glitches. They got caught sending out thousands of votes, all against me by the way.” President Trump added, “This was like from a third world nation, and I think the case has been made, and now we find out what we can do about it. But you’ll see a lot of big things happening over the next couple of days.”
It is unclear which developments President Trump may be forecasting. A Pennsylvania case may soon be before the Supreme Court, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has already agreed to represent the side alleging widespread voter fraud. Additionally, state legislators in Georgia are circulating a petition that would allow them to call a special session of the Georgia legislature without the governor’s permission. On the other side of the country, in Arizona, two lawsuits put forward by the Arizona Republican Party are rapidly moving through the court system, and GOP Chair Kelli Ward has called for legislators to open an immediate legislative hearing into voter fraud that would give them subpoena power.
