Tom Fitton: Trump won Tuesday according to federal election law

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said the expansion of mail voting made the election chaos “entirely predictable,” extending the vote count past Election Day, which is illegal.

President Trump was ahead on Election Day and therefore should be declared the winner, he insisted in an interview with Fox Business host Lou Dobbs.

Fitton, who recalled testifying before Congress that “this vote-by-mail scheme was going to lead to chaos,” argued federal law requires that states “shall select their electors for president and vice president on Tuesday, Election Day, and it hasn’t happened.”

“No one’s been in court to enforce that law,” he said. Instead we have the (Trump) campaign, arguing for a better seat to watch the three-card monte game in which they are the mark.

“They’re not going to win,” he said.

Fitton said that the five or six states counting ballots after the election “necessarily suggests something unproper is going on.”

“I take the position, based on what the law says, that you figure out who won on Election Day,” he said. “We know the president won Michigan on Election Day.

We know he won Wisconsin on Election Day, and Pennsylvania and Georgia and North Carolina. We know.”

That result should be protected, he said, but instead it’s been changed as a result of counting that goes on past the statutory deadline.

He said that if the courts don’t fix it, there are opportunities for Congress to “decide whether or not they are going to bless this process that we’re seeing in Pennsylvania, a slow-motion overturning of the lawful election result.”

Dobbs asked Fitton if he is hopeful that the U.S. Supreme Court will “have the guts and the principle to act.”

“The question is what are they going to be asked to do?” Fitton said. “Are they going to be asked to do something that’s going to restore the election result that is lawful here, that the president actually won on Election Day, at least according to the numbers that were being released by the states?”

The other option, he said, is to redo the presidential election.
