President Donald Trump is "very committed to protect free and fair elections," not merely using courts to overturn the will of the American people, according to Trump campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis on Newsmax TV.
"We want to make sure to not have any of the results certified in any of the states before we know that they are legitimate results, and if we can't get to that result, then we have to make sure to challenge that and ask the court to provide a meaningful remedy," Ellis told Saturday's "America Right Now."
Among the most noteworthy challenges is with regard to Dominion Voting Systems, which remains one of the focuses of the legal team's scrutiny of the election results, she told host Tom Basile.
"The Constitution provides for these alternatives, when you have an election that is compromised – whether it's on one local level or it's nationally – and the American people need to understand that our founders were so brilliant that they anticipated there may be corruption, there may be fraud, and they have different mechanisms that are embedded in the Constitution to provide for these different instances and to make sure that the people are not disenfranchised," Ellis said.
"And so we are just following the process. We are following the Constitution. And I think with Mayor [Rudy] Giuliani now in charge of this, you're going to see that there is a lot of cohesiveness. That our team is absolutely together on this."
The electoral college vote on Dec. 14 remains the most important date of the presidential election process, as prescribed by the Constitution. As constitutional law expert Alan Dershowitz noted earlier on Newsmax TV's "Saturday Report," an election still contested on that date might ultimately hand the election over to the House state delegations – a majority held by Republicans 26-23-1.
"The mainstream media is rushing to coronate Joe Biden," Ellis said. "They're trying discount all of our very significant legal challenges.
"They don't want the truth to come out, because they want Joe Biden to be president regardless of whether or not he actually earned that. That's not the fault of the Trump campaign, and we are trying to get the truth out there.
"That's the fault of the mainstream media and the fake news rushing to judgment."
Ellis, signaling the direction of the Trump campaign objective, said it remains resolute to find the "legitimate winner" of the election, not to overturn the will of the American people.
"The point is not about changing the outcome of the election, and I wanted to be very clear about that," Ellis said. "This is about making sure every legal vote is counted and counted fairly. If that impacts the outcome, then certainly that's a major issue.
"But the point that everyone should be made very clear on is: Whoever is declared the winner is in fact the legitimate winner."
"The goal here is not campaigning," she concluded. "The goal here is to make sure that every legal vote is counted and counted accurately."
