The Trump Legal Team released a press statement on Tuesday “safe Harbor Deadline” that is being discussed in the media and online, defining the term and dispelling the left’s claims to legal power and authority of the American media to determine laws and victors in American elections.
The full press release follows:
The ‘Safe Harbor Deadline’ is a statutory timeline that generally denotes the last day for states to certify election results. However, it is not unprecedented for election contests to last well beyond December 8.
“Justice Ginsburg recognized in Bush v. Gore that the date of ‘ultimate significance’ is January 6, when Congress counts and certifies the votes of the Electoral College. The only fixed day in the U.S. Constitution is the inauguration of the President on January 20 at noon.
“Despite the media trying desperately to proclaim that the fight is over, we will continue to champion election integrity until the legal vote is counted fairly and accurately.”
– Rudy Giuliani, attorney for President Trump, and Jenna Ellis, Trump Campaign Senior Legal Adviser and Attorney for President Trump
Attorney Phillip Kline echoed the sentiment and said,” These “Safe Harbor” dates are not required by the constitution. We need more time to investigate this election. The ONLY Electoral College deadline specifically required by the Constitution is noon on January 20, at which point Trump’s first term officially ends.”
“The “Safe Harbor” dates of December 8th and 14th are not constitutionally required. These dates can easily be moved without harm to our country. The left is unable to verify that these elections were lawfully done and the right has evidence of fraud that’s starting to flow,” Kline said.
The State Legislatures have authority, many are saying leading in to what appears to be the makings of a US Supreme Court case showdown.
