President Donald Trump has a number of lawyers working on election-related litigation around the country, but so far have come up mostly short of victories of the significance required to alter the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
It’s not surprising then that one of former Vice President Joe Biden’s top advisers, Kate Bedingfield, revealed over the weekend that the Biden campaign has virtually no concerns, whatsoever, of Trump’s legal efforts to overturn the results of the election, according to The Hill.
Bedingfield, Biden’s top communications adviser, and deputy campaign manager took to the Fox News airwaves on Sunday and made the claim of confidence to “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace.
“I think what we’ve seen over the course of the last few weeks are these lawsuits … have been laughed out of court after court after court throughout the country. They are getting no traction,” Bedingfield said.
According to Fox News, Bedingfield doubled down and continued to hammer Trump’s lawyers’ legal efforts, writing them off as a “PR stunt” and a “sideshow.” She also ripped the Trump team for trying to “subvert the democratic system.”
Wallace quizzed Bedingfield on how the Biden transition team might act, including if they’re considering legal action, in order to receive the blessing of the General Services Administration, a little-known government outfit that provides resources — including money — for an incoming administration.
“What will move things forward is the GSA administrator signing the piece of paper. She should ascertain the results of the election so we can move forward with the transition,” Bedingfield said, while adding that litigating the GSA to act “is not a panacea.”
Adding to her confidence that the Biden team isn’t taking into consideration the numerous lawsuits still being filed by Trump’s legal teams, Bedingfield told the Fox News host that the Biden campaign will be making a number of Cabinet announcements on Tuesday.
It’s a wild guess, but I have a feeling President Donald Trump might have something to say about those announcements, come Tuesday.
