David Rivkin, who served in the White House counsel’s office and Justice Department under Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush, warned about what he characterized as the “Titanic scenario”:
Disputed election results in many states with potentially inconsistent opinions on the same legal issues.
A deadlocked Supreme Court if Trump doesn’t fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat before the election.
It becomes up to the House of Representatives to declare the winner. But the question of who controls the delegations in the House may also be at play, given that every member of Congress is also up for reelection this year.
“It’s tremendously dangerous from every perspective,” said Rivkin, who supports Trump.
