White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said President Donald Trump is in “great spirits” in the midst of several lawsuits over the Nov. 3 election, adding that she believes some cases will reach the Supreme Court, where conservatives enjoy a 6-3 majority.
“I think at this point, it probably will make its way up to the Supreme Court,” McEnany told Just The News. “Right now, we’re at the district court level. And we will see how they rule in Pennsylvania and on our upcoming lawsuits here in Michigan and elsewhere. And I think it’s really anyone’s guess where this goes.”
McEnany added that Trump’s campaign also has more information on a Michigan case about ballots, which will be released in the near future.
McEnany—who is also serving as Trump’s campaign adviser—responded to an incident on Monday when Fox News cut away from her speech to show host Neil Cavuto, who said he couldn’t allow her to say Democrats are “welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting.” Following the move, Fox News has faced backlash from conservatives on social media.
In the interview, McEnany said that she was attempting to expose problems with the U.S. election system.
“It’s a tenet of the Republican Party to support voter identification because to not support it welcomes fraud. It’s a basic principle and it’s one that I don’t believe should be censored by the media but allowed to be said,” she added. “The Democrats—they tried to delegitimize the 2016 election for four years. All we’re asking for is transparency. And we have the media attacking us simply for asking to put light on the system.”
Earlier this week, Trump’s campaign filed a lawsuit that alleged officials created a “two-tiered voting system”—which is illegal—and favored mail-in ballots.
“[W]e believe this two-tiered election system resulted in potentially fraudulent votes being counted without proper verification or oversight, as well as many voters being disenfranchised simply for casting their votes in-person,” said Trump 2020 campaign general counsel Matt Morgan.
Of the new allegations foisted against Pennsylvania’s election officials, McEnany said that “there will be forthcoming litigation as well.”
David Becker, executive director and founder of the Center for Election Innovation and Research, told USA Today that with the latest lawsuit, the campaign “continues to spread lies about transparency of this process and the access to observers.”
“Trump campaign observers and Republican Party observers were present at every moment that every ballot was considered in Pennsylvania,” he said. However, last week, Republicans and Trump’s campaign alleged that all Republican observers were illegally blocked from watching the vote-counting process.
Several news outlets say that Democratic candidate Joe Biden is projected to win Pennsylvania. The Epoch Times has not called the race for either Trump or Biden due to outstanding legal challenges and as the process to the final Electoral College vote has not been completed.
