For several weeks now, the team of attorneys representing President Trump has worked tirelessly to litigate the 2020 presidential election. For a while, these efforts dominated national news; although, more and more Americans are turning their attention to the special elections happening in Georgia.
To say that legal efforts from Trump’s attorneys have not panned out would be an understatement. Judges, federal judges, and Supreme Court justices have taken it upon themselves to dismiss cases and appeals submitted by Trump’s legal aides; the reasons for these dismissals often cite lack of evidence and lack of standing. This is also a recurring pattern.
Amid futile efforts and absent results, the legal representatives for Trump are now facing backlash, according to Newsmax.
The General Consensus on the Trump Legal Team
Mick Mulvaney, the former White House acting chief of staff spoke with Fox Business regarding the Trump legal team earlier this week. The former aide maintains that while President Trump reserves every legal right to pursue litigation, his attorneys haven’t done a great job.
Mulvaney declared that Americans are really unimpressed with the lack of results or wins from lawyers representing the president. Likewise, the former acting chief of staff opined that the work of the Trump legal team appears more reminiscent of a public relations stunt than a serious and legitimate legal inquiry.
Tremendous evidence pouring in on voter fraud. There has never been anything like this in our Country!

Despite the lack of success from Trump’s lawyers, thus far, Mulvaney did state that the president will employ “every tool” at his disposal to challenge the 2020 presidential election.
A Legitimate Path Forward
On January 6, 2021, Congress is supposed to convene; this meeting will take place for the purposes of certifying the Electoral College’s collective votes for Joe Biden.
Attorneys for Trump have already indicated that they are working to have Biden’s wins overturned in battleground states like Pennsylvania, Arizona, and others. Meanwhile, multiple Republicans in Washington have vowed to challenge the congressional certification process.

As of late, the legal team representing President Trump has faced criticism from both political sides. Left-wingers are dismissing their assertions altogether; meanwhile, disillusioned folks on the right, such as Mulvaney, are stating that Trump’s aides have yet to deliver before the courts.
