While the states see Dec. 8 as the date to certify elections before a Dec. 14 electoral college vote, the Trump campaign sees Jan. 6 as the true "safe harbor deadline," according to Trump campaign senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis on Newsmax TV.
"[Tuesday's] quote, unquote 'safe harbor deadline' actually has no practical effect on the litigation, and even Dec. 14 really doesn't," Ellis told Monday's "Stinchfield."
"All of these are guided, of course, by Congress and when the states actually complete their next steps in terms of delegates. But when the delegate votes are actually opened, certified by Congress, and counted — and that's when we have a president elect is Jan. 6."
Even the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, citing Bush v. Gore, notes Jan. 6, Ellis told host Grant Stinchfield.
"Jan. 6 is the date we're looking at, so we still have a ways to go in this, Grant," she added. "And it's really just the fake news mainstream media that wants to rush this to judgment."
