Jenna Ellis pans calls for martial law

Ellis was responding to a tweet from a professional wrestler who had tweeted that Trump needs “to call martial law & redo the whole presidential election!!!” But the calls for what would be an unprecedented usurpation of the Constitution have come from other higher-profile sources as well…

“It doesn’t work like that,” Ellis said in a tweet. “We have a constitutional process for the Electoral College and remedies for corrupted elections. I totally understand Americans’ passion, but we have to uphold the law, not undermine it.”

As Trump continues to make baseless claims that he won the presidential election in a “magnificent landslide,” Ellis’ tweet is a high-profile indication from someone who’s been publicly aligned with the president every step of the way that martial law is off the table.
