Ex-Trump Attorney Chesebro Defends Fake Electors In Georgia, Claims They Were 'Duly Elected'

Source: Forbes via MSN

Former Trump attorney Kenneth Chesebro made his latest legal attempt to defend himself against charges in Fulton County, Georgia, Monday, weeks before his case goes to trial, arguing a state court should throw out charges against him for helping orchestrate a “fake electors” scheme that submitted false slates of electors to Congress after the 2020 election—by dubiously claiming they weren’t falsely elected.

Key Facts

Chesebro was indicted in Fulton County for his alleged role in the fake electors plot—part of a broader effort to overturn the 2020 election—in which he allegedly encouraged the Trump campaign and GOP officials to submit false slates of electors to Congress claiming former President Donald Trump, rather than President Joe Biden, had won the states.

Chesebro filed a motion trying to throw out two counts against him that charge him with conspiracy to commit false statements and writings as part of the fake electors scheme, before the case goes to trial.

They're the people who get to represent the party when it's time to cast Electoral College votes--but their party then needs to win the state's votes for POTUS. Only then are they "elected and qualified" to cast Electoral College votes.

I'm an idiot who doesn't even have a law degree, and I know that much.
