Fox News Host Says State Legislators Should Change Votes, But Not Enough Evidence for Court Wins

Fox News host Will Cain discussed several ways President Donald Trump's failed re-election campaign may still be able to convince Republican state legislators to "change their electors" even though no U.S. court system would ever make that decision.

Cain and his Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy disagreed entirely Monday on how the burden of proof and evidence forces the Trump campaign to prove any and all accusations of alleged voter fraud. Cain echoed George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley's remarks earlier in the program.

"There's this disconnect between the evidence and the relief being sought," said Turley. "They've shown irregularities, they've shown unlawful orders, they've even shown thousands of votes that were not counted, but they haven't amounted to the type of numbers that would change the outcome in a given state."

Cain's name began trending Monday on Twitter for separate remarks in the same interview in which he declared his "individual spirit" allows him to not wear a mask at home with his family amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Cain offered one more piece of hope for Trump and his supporters, arguing there may not be enough evidence to win court battles, but there might be enough to change the minds of state legislators. Biden supporters and Trump critics alike have for weeks accused Republicans of trying to get GOP lawmakers to override the will of their state voters.

"I think what's happening here is we are quickly moving towards a political case being made—meaning the Trump team is talking to state legislators in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and we know today in Arizona, as well, attempting to make their case," Cain told Fox News viewers. "There may not be enough evidence for a court system, but there should be enough evidence for state legislators to change their electors."

Doocy pushed back against Cain's latest attempt to lend legal credence to Trump's unfounded voter fraud claims. Doocy cautioned that ultimately the president "thinks the election was stolen," and he is convincing his supporters of that as well.

"Do you feel like it was stolen? There are people out there who do. But, at the same time, like Jonathan Turley said, we have got to see the evidence," Doocy said.

Newsweek reached out to the Trump campaign for additional remarks Monday morning.
