Trump’s lawyer: ‘This fight is not over’
by Jon Fleetwood | December 17, 2020
“They’ve been trying to push Joe Biden through to the finish line. But this fight is not over yet, and not by a longshot,” said Jenna Ellis to Jan Jekielek from American Thought Leaders.
Ellis is an American lawyer for President Donald Trump. She has served as deputy district attorney in Weld County, Colorado as well as an assistant professor of legal studies at Colorado Christian University.
Ellis is hopeful of the President’s chances at re-election and explained her predictions.
As a constitutional law attorney, Ellis emphasized how the US Constitution protects Americans from corruption in the 2020 election.
“We’re following the process that’s laid out in the US Constitution designed specifically by our Founding Fathers to make sure that corrupted elections don’t prevail,” said Ellis.
Ellis’s priority is the law-abiding American voter. “At this point, what the campaign is doing and the legal team for the president, we are still pushing for election integrity to make sure that every legal vote is counted and counted fairly,” she said.
Jekielek asked Ellis how the competing (‘alternate’) Republican electors might still influence the election even after the Electoral College vote, which already occurred on Monday.
Ellis referenced the Texas v. Pennsylvania filing which was dismissed by the Supreme Court last Friday. She said “one of the great things that came out of that case” was that the Pennsylvania state legislature filed an amicus brief admitting to the Supreme Court that they agreed with the Texas lawsuit.
“That gives them the basis—through their investigations, their findings, all of the testimony and evidence presented by the mayor and myself at that hearing—for Pennsylvania to reclaim, under Article II Section 1.2 of the US Constitution, …their authority to select the slate of delegates,” said Ellis.
This means that “they have every opportunity to call themselves back into an electoral session for the purpose of voting on which slate of delegates they’re going to send.”
Ellis believes this will happen even before Jan. 6, which is when Congress will officially count the electoral votes.
She cited Georgia, Michigan, Arizona, and Wisconsin as likely states to call an electoral session and “run that resolution to vote by simple majority and say ‘We’re not going to allow corrupted, false certifications to prevail in terms of how we select our delegates.’”
“If one state is willing to do this I think others will follow,” said Ellis.
But she notes the “pushback” from Democrats who claim that there is “nothing to see” regarding irregularities, discrepancies, and fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
“Well, if you’re so concerned about transparency and honesty, and if that conclusory statement is correct, then you’ll have no problem investigating this and making sure that the American people…are assured that everything is free and fair….”
Ellis encourages other states to “take a hard look” at their respective election laws to make certain that what’s happened in these six states “never happens again in America.”
“[T]he American people and those of us who love our country, we value free and fair elections, we want to preserve and protect the Constitution. There are at least 74 million Americans that voted for President Trump because they want to protect America,” said Ellis.
“It’s incumbent, though, upon every American,” continued Ellis, “regardless of who you voted for, whether or not you like the outcome of this election, to stop any cheating, to stop any lawlessness, to stop anything that runs afoul of the US Constitution to make sure to protect free and fair elections.”
And Ellis encourages the American people to hold their elected leaders responsible by contacting them directly and by starting recall petitions.
“If there is a member of any party who is an elected official…who’s not willing to take this seriously and genuinely uphold and protect the law and the rule of law and the Constitution, we can recall them,” said Ellis. “Because clearly, they have failed us.”
“[N]o person in the United States is entitled to government authority,” she added. “It’s only upon consent of we the people and consent of the governed.”
Ellis affirmed that the Trump legal team is “looking at all legal options” to produce a Trump victory.
