Judge Pirro Rips Dems, Defends Trump: “Don’t you dare ask us to go quietly into the night, we’ll pursue all legal avenues”
Judge Jeanine Pirro ripped the hypocritical Democrats for demanding Trump stop making legal challenges to the 2024 election. Remember, certain factions of the Dem Party tried to get faithless electors to vote for Hillary over Trump. It didn’t work but you can expect Trump to make the same effort after his longshot legal challenges are exhausted.
“We’ll pursue all legal avenues where there are irregularities, anomalies, illegalities and corruptions, and until the certification and the elector’s vote, that is not a lot to ask,” she said.
“So don’t you dare ask us to just accept it and move on, and don’t you dare tell me I’m being un-American by questioning what even a Supreme Court justice has put a hold on. And don’t you dare ask us to go quietly into the night.”
Pirro pointed out that it is not up to the media to declare the winner of the election – a complaint that has been pushed loudly and frequently by Trump and his allies – even though the media has signaled a presumptive winner in every election in modern history.
She also questioned the true motivations behind changes made to this year’s election procedures in response to the coronavirus pandemic, as Trump has done.
‘We are criticized because we are asking questions,’ she said. ‘Under the cover of Covid, rules were changed, providing opportunities for wrongdoers.
‘Covid cannot be used to run herd on our constitution. Covid is not a prophylactic that prevents us from exercising our constitutional fundamental right to vote.’
Pirro listed off several allegations of voter fraud pushed by the Trump campaign in lawsuits across various states, such as GOP poll watchers being barred from counting centers, ballots being accepted late and corruption of machines that tally votes.
While those allegations have yet to be substantiated, Pirro insisted that they must be probed extensively.
‘The question is, will any of these allegations affect a sufficient number of votes to change the result of the election?’ Pirro asked. ‘Maybe yes, and maybe no.’
She then acknowledged the possibility that the allegations would not sway the result, and said she could accept a Biden presidency in that case.
‘If the answer is President Trump did not win, then on January 20, Joe Biden will be my president,’ she said.
‘But until then, President Trump is my president because America has only one president at a time.
‘And in the meantime, please don’t tell me that we cannot examine the ballots. Please do not tell me that we cannot pursue these irregularities. That’s laughable!’
PART ONE: The most important part of democracy is to do it correctly. The most important question tonight is did we in 2020? #OpeningStatement pic.twitter.com/AtYWTHiuiS— Jeanine Pirro (@JudgeJeanine) November 15, 2020
