In The American Spectator, Scot McKay demands that President Trump be allowed to make his case to the American people, and the judicial system. McKay writes (abridged):
A stolen election in the United States of America is unthinkable. That one side would so blatantly violate the social contract is beyond the pale.
The president and his team will be making the case this week that the irregularities and defects in this failed election changed the outcome.
They must be allowed to make that case, and to present evidence for it. If that evidence is indeed compelling and shows itself to be material to the outcome, then legislators in those states where the fraud has been decisive are obligated to invalidate the posted, fraudulent results and choose their own slates of electors as provided in the Constitution.
Failing that, the House must vote on Jan. 3 to invalidate an Electoral College result decided by fraud.
The Constitution, the foundation of our Republic, demands no less. It provides remedies against a stolen election.
If those remedies are not acted upon should the president win his case, the Constitution is dead and the Republic with it, and the abyss beckons.
