When asked about conceding the presidential election, Trump responded with a message of bravery, ‘It will take a brave judge, or a brave legislature…or a brave justice.” With upcoming key dates on the horizon, the Trump team appears to have a two-front strategy that involves petitioning GOP state legislatures to take back their power over the electoral process, and moving lawsuits to the Supreme Court.
“You need a judge who is willing to hear a case,” Trump said, adding that he also needs, “a Supreme Court who is willing to make a really big decision.”
The call for bravery points toward the magnitude of the issues facing state and federal decision makers. The processes set in place are procedural in nature and allow for enough time for governmental leaders to consider evidence and determine which path to take. However, the dates of electoral and congressional certification create a sense of urgency for the Trump campaign. “We’re doing both, with equal speed and enthusiasm, and taking advantage of which one gives us the hearing the quickest,” said Rudy Giuliani told Newsmax.
