Biden swears to battle Trump’s legal suit against the elections
The campaign team of the Democrat Party has reiterated the readiness of the former Vice President, Joe Biden to battle any lawsuit that may arise from the ongoing United States of America’s (USA) elections.
According to a Statement issued on Wednesday by the campaign manager of the Democrat, Jen O’Malley Dillon the party is prepared to face President Donald Trump’s lawsuit which he earlier declared in the White House against the party and the elections.
It stated that the threat would not discourage them and were prepared to battle President Trump, if he sues them to withhold the free and fair tabulation of the elections.
This follows earlier claim by President Trump that there were irregularities and was seeking redress from Supreme Court to prevent ballots from being tabulated.
In a statement that re-echoed President Trump’s words that he would “be going to the US Supreme Court and that he wants all voting to stop,” claiming the results was “outrageous, unprecedented and incorrect.”
The statement indicated that if Trump “makes good on his threat to go to court to try to prevent the proper tabulation of votes” the Biden campaign has “legal teams standing by ready to deploy to resist that effort.”
The statement also described Donald Trump’s reaction to his defeat as “outrageous,” stressing that “it is a naked effort to take away the democratic rights of American citizens.”
It further stated that the action of President Trump to invalidate the ballot of every voter should not be entertained and expressed urgent need for every legitimate vote to be counted as required by the law.
“They will prevail. There are still hundreds of thousands of votes left to be counted, and the outcome hinges on a handful of uncalled battleground states,” it added.
Trump falsely declared himself as winner and demanded Court to stop counting.
The counting of votes could take several days and a close or contentious decision might well be thrown to the courts.
“We will be going to the U.S. Supreme Court, we want all voting to stop,” Trump said early on Wednesday.
“We were getting ready to win this election – frankly we did win this election.”
“So our goal now is to ensure the integrity for the good of this nation. This is a very big moment,” he added.
In a tweet, President Trump said “We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election. We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!”
Twitter later flagged the tweet as “misleading” especially about an election or other civic process.
In a speech from the White House to attack the Democrat, President Trump alleged that a group of “sad” opponents were trying to “disenfranchise” his supporters and that “major fraud” was taking place.
Legal experts point out that there was no way to go directly to the supreme court with a claim of fraud.
President Trump claimed that there were problems in how the votes were being counted in each state, but this process would have to begin in a state or lower federal court.
Neither candidate has achieved the 270 electoral college votes necessary for entering the White House and counting is still under way in the key battleground states.
