When a former lawyer asked why the election of President Donald Trump can’t be rescinded, U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein responded with two sentences – and a visual.
The man, who identified himself as a former lawyer asked Rosenstein why, if “we” can find “any illegality,” Trump’s election couldn’t be rescinded, declared void “and redone”:
“In any legal transaction, real estate or contract, if there is fraud or illegality, that contract, that transaction, can be rescinded.
“Why, if we have found or can find collusion or violation of election law or any other illegality in the 2016 election, if it is found, why can't the election be rescinded, declared void ab initio, and redone?”
“Because of this,” Rosenstein responded – holding up a copy of the United States Constitution.
“So, to the best of my knowledge, there is no procedure to void an election – that’s all there is,” Rosenstein said.
