In an interview on Fox News Monday, President Trump’s senior adviser Stephen Miller said “as we speak, an alternate slate of electors in the contested states is going to vote,” and those votes will be sent to Congress—the latest effort by the Trump campaign to reverse the results of the 2020 presidential election.
The 538 members of the Electoral College are meeting today to cast ballots for president based on the election results in their states—a formality that cements Biden’s victory. Miller said the “alternate group” of electors would seek to “right the wrong of this fraudulent election result and certify Donald Trump as the winner of the election.”
The Daily Beast reports:
Those “alternate” results, however, will not be certified by any states’ secretaries of state, therefore rendering them worthless.
Noting that polls show Trump supporters overwhelmingly believe Trump’s baseless claim that the election was “stolen,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt asked Miller what the next “arrow in your quiver” is now that the Supreme Court rejected the Texas lawsuit to throw out swing state votes.
“Well, we have open election challenges in all the contested states,” the Trump adviser insisted while echoing Trump’s unfounded allegations about widespread voter fraud.
Stephen Miller on Fox & Friends says “an alternative” group of electors is also voting today:
