Watch: CNN Admits There Are “Legal & Constitutional” Ways For Trump To Stay In Office Tyler Durden Sat, 11/28/2020 – 20:00 Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News, In a video released before the election but attracting fresh attention, CNN's Fareed Zakaria explained the “legal and constitutional” case by which President Trump could stay in office even if he loses the election.
In a moment of actual journalistic integrity, which is incredibly rare these days for CNN, Zakaria outlined how Trump could retain the presidency “without actually winning the vote.” Explaining how the system worked, Zakaria said electors are determined by that state's popular vote, but that this is “not a constitutional obligation.” The host then outlined the exact scenario that happened on election day, with Trump leading on November 3rd but then mail-in ballots swinging the result for Biden, prompting a flurry of challenges and lawsuits.
“Taking account of the confusion, legislatures decide to choose the electors themselves,” said Zakaria before pointing out that eight out of nine key swing states have Republican legislatures.
CNN. Straightforward from here: ▶️GOP controls state legislatures in key swing states ▶️Legislatures convinced of fraud; send own/no electors ▶️Biden deprived of 270 ▶️State delegations in House re-elect Trump 26-23 “So the outcome would be to re-elect Donald Trump.” pic.twitter.com/vZAnvtgNBz – Kyle Becker (@kylenabecker) November 28, 2020 “At that point, the constitution clearly directs that the House of Representatives vote to determine the presidential election, but it does so with each state casting a single ballot,” said Zakaria, noting that this process would result in the re-election of Donald Trump.
Zakaria's explanation of how Trump could still win is still in play.
