Fox Business host Lou Dobbs, a fervent supporter of President Donald Trump, demanded this week that the Republican Party spend as much as half a billion dollars if it takes that to fight to make Trump the winner, despite losing to President-elect Joe Biden.
Dobbs demanded that the GOP do something to save the president, telling White House aide Stephen Miller that “the reality is that this president right now, and let’s be straightforward about it. He’s fighting all alone, and Ted Cruz is has stepped up to say he’ll argue before the Supreme Court,” Dobbs shouted. “Why on God’s green Earth wouldn’t the White House jump on it?”
Miller responded by saying that he thinks the legislature should step up and overturn the election.
“No, no, Stephen. I’m not going to let you do this,” Dobbs stopped Miller. “You and I, we’re reasonably smart and decent fellows. Why don’t you answer me? That’s all I’m asking here, Stephen. Why don’t you guys jump and salute Ted Cruz and say, ‘Yes, we want you on the team’ now? My God, this is not a time for internecine nonsense on the part of the Republican Party, which is watching its blood drain into the streets because they’re gutless!”
Joe Biden’s election Marc Elias responded during an interview on CNN.
“Well, I’m flattered, I suppose, that he thinks the Republican Party should pay me half a billion dollars,” said Elias. “There isn’t anything that I or any other lawyer will do to change the votes and in this case. The votes that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won. This isn’t a question of lawyering. this is just a question of who got more votes.”
He went on to say that he anticipated the outcome of the Supreme Court ruling this afternoon from Justice Samuel Alito, and he doesn’t anticipate the High Court will be interested in involving themselves in other cases.
