The election isn’t over until it’s over!
Even though the Electoral College votes today (December 14), the ONLY date listed in the entire Constitution is January 20th.
That means that President Trump and the Trump campaign will continue to fight for a fair election process.
Appearing on Fox News, Stephen Miller declared:
We are sending an alternate slate of electors to Congress.
This means that it is up to Congress to determine which electors to approve.
Congress will certify the vote on January 6, 2021.
If more evidence of voter fraud comes out before January 6th, then Congress will be under immense pressure to select the alternate slate of electors.
Here’s the clip from Miller’s appearance this morning:
Stephen Miller on Fox & Friends says "an alternative" group of electors is also voting today:

For weeks, we’ve been reporting that there are MULTIPLE paths for Trump to fight the apparent results.
The alternative slate of electors is one of these paths.
The Hill has more details:
President Trump’s allies are preparing to send an “alternate” slate of electors to Congress, senior White House adviser Stephen Miller said Monday, signaling Trump will drag out his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election even after the Electoral College certifies Joe Biden as the winner.
Miller, appearing on Fox News as a senior adviser to the Trump campaign, brushed off the idea that the Electoral College vote marked any kind of end to the process.
“The only date in the Constitution is Jan. 20. So we have more than enough time to right the wrong of this fraudulent election result and certify Donald Trump as the winner of the election,” Miller said on “Fox & Friends.”
“As we speak, today, an alternate slate of electors in the contested states is going to vote and we’re going to send those results up to Congress,” he continued. “This will ensure that all of our legal remedies remain open. That means that if we win these cases in the courts, that we can direct that the alternate state of electors be certified.”
Electors from every state will meet on Monday to formally elect Biden as the next president. Those results will be certified by the states and submitted to Congress.
Trump and his team have been overwhelmingly unsuccessful in challenging the election results. They have had dozens of legal cases dismissed for lack of standing or evidence, and Georgia has confirmed Biden as the winner after multiple recounts.
Still, Miller’s comments are a clear sign that the president will not suddenly reverse course and accept defeat once the Electoral College has spoken.
President Trump predicted this.
He predicted that it would take “few weeks” for the truth to come out.
He appeared to suggest that the Democrats (and the media) would not be happy in a few weeks.
We can only assume he has a bigger plan in the works!
Looks like we are experiencing the beginning of what Trump meant when he told the media: "You might not be happy in a few weeks." 🇺🇸😁 pic.twitter.com/ATYlECXYpB

Despite Stephen Miller’s statement, the Speaker of the House in Michigan is claiming there is no alternative slate of electors.
So who is telling the truth?
According to Fox 17 Online:
Michigan’s Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield says he will not attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 Presidential election in Michigan.
In a statement released hours before Electoral Voters cast the state’s 16 votes for the Presidency, Chatfield says having state lawmakers decide the outcome “unpresidented.”
“I can’t fathom risking our norms, traditions and institutions to pass a resolution retroactively changing the electors for Trump, simply because some think there may have been enough widespread fraud to give him the win,” said Chatfield.
“President Trump also had every right to pursue his options and try every legal step available to contest this election. The race for the presidency is not something you take lightly. In Michigan, after reports of fraud, we as the Legislature began our investigations. We wasted no time. We issued subpoenas. We sent record retention letters to clerks. We had hearings. We brought in President Trump’s legal team. Even Dominion is coming in this week. We’ve diligently examined these reports of fraud to the best of our ability.
“There were irregularities with this recent election that need more attention. That is why the Legislature, which is the voice of the people, is still looking into those allegations and giving the people their right to speak and be heard at the state Capitol. Our investigation and hearings will continue. Every single instance of fraud should be uncovered and corrected. Some of the things that occurred in places like Wayne and Antrim County cannot be allowed to happen again if we are to uphold the confidence and integrity of our election system. Election reform will be needed next year.
“If there’s fraud, it needs to be found. Anyone who broke our laws need to be prosecuted. Election integrity makes our country unique. The people of America, whether they win or lose, have peace of mind knowing that the people spoke, the law was followed and that our institutions carry on in accordance with our Constitution. If there’s fraud, we punish it. If there’s not, we move on.
“This has also led to a national conversation over the Legislature’s role in choosing the electors. I’m a states’ rights guy, so I’m happy to have this conversation. But the Legislature in Michigan chose decades ago to award our electors to the winner of the popular vote. Although many reasonably believe otherwise, I personally believe that the Legislature could pass a resolution changing the manner in which electors are appointed, but the Supreme Court ruled in 2000 that once created, the right to a popular vote for President becomes fundamental, and the exercise of a fundamental right can’t be infringed retroactively for due process reasons. Maybe they were right. Maybe they were wrong. But that was the Court’s decision. And it still stands today.
“Again – I fought hard for President Trump. Nobody wanted him to win more than me. I think he’s done an incredible job. But I love our republic, too. I can’t fathom risking our norms, traditions and institutions to pass a resolution retroactively changing the electors for Trump, simply because some think there may have been enough widespread fraud to give him the win. That’s unprecedented for good reason. And that’s why there is not enough support in the House to cast a new slate of electors. I fear we’d lose our country forever. This truly would bring mutually assured destruction for every future election in regards to the Electoral College. And I can’t stand for that. I won’t.
If there is evidence of fraud…
If there are ongoing investigations…
Then how can we safely and confidently certify the election results?
Remember, the 1960 Chicago voter fraud scandal (one of the largest scandals in history) took up to 2 years to unravel.
How much longer would it take to unravel foul play in a presidential election?
We deserve fairness and transparency!
