Speaking at an event for the conservative Federalist Society on Thursday, Ted Olson said that he believes “the election is over” and that America has “a new president.”

“The Framers, they separated the powers because they knew that individuals would be flawed. They put in lots of checks, and we just experienced one, the election,” Olson said.

“To the extent that the citizens of this country did not like the manner in which President Trump spoke, or the manner in which he threatened people or the manner in which he executed the laws, they exercised their franchise.”

“And we have — I do believe the election is over — we do have a new president,” he said.
