Former Clinton Advisor: Chief Justice John Roberts Will Decide 2020 Election
Dick Morris says there is likelihood of delay due to mail-in voting
Dick Morris, a former Clinton campaign adviser, predicted the coming presidential election could be delayed due to mail-in voting, culminating with the results being given by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to decide the outcome.
Though Morris said he believed Trump would win in a landslide on Election Night, he told “The Cats Roundtable” host John Catsimatidis that millions of mail-in ballots could be found in favor of Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the following days.
Morris lamented on the possibility of election results leading to civil war:
“Well, there certainly will be major conflict," he said.
"I hope there won’t be civil war, and it’s serious enough that I don’t take your question metaphorically.”
“The blue state governors are mailing out tens of millions of ballots, and they’re going to be returned with a vote on them, probably for Biden,” Morris continued.
“And those people will not go to the polls to vote on Election Day. So what you’re probably looking at is that you’re going to have on election night a report that Trump carried […] all of the potential swing states.”
“And they’ll say that Trump has 330-350 electoral votes and won a landslide,” Morris added.
“And then, day after day, week after week, you’re going to find another million ballots counted here, another half-million there, another quarter of a million in another place," he said.
"And gradually, these Democratic liberal secretaries of state who are in charge of the election in most of these blue states will say, ‘Oh, well, we’re sorry. It turns out Biden carried Wisconsin, not Trump.'”

“Then, the Trump people will sue. But that suit will have to be in state court. The state court judges are largely liberal, largely Democrat," he added.
"And they are going to say, ‘Oh, we rule in favor of the state: Biden carried it.’ Then … they’ll probably go up to the federal courts. And the U.S. Supreme Court eventually will make the decision. And then the entire election will be in the hands literally of John Roberts. And we’ll see what he’ll do.”
“Dick Morris, this is a serious situation,” Catsimatidis interjected.
“Me and you have been in politics for 30, 40 years. We know local politics. Nobody cross-checks mail ballots versus actual voting. There’s not enough people in the country to cross-check the difference.”
Morris agreed to add:
“The Democrats, certainly if they feel they’re legitimately losing the election, are going to use the excuse of the COVID virus — nobody can come out and vote in person, they claim — and to mail-in ballots, and they’re going to deliberately game the system by sending in millions and millions of mail-in ballots for people that don’t exist or have already voted.”
“And the states will not verify the signatures, because they are under the control of Democrats,” Morris added.
“And the courts will validate that process because they’re controlled by Democrats.”
Morris remarks come after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg warned American voters to be prepared for the likelihood of delayed election results in November.
Earlier this month, Trump warned that mail-in voting could lead to the most "corrupt election" in US history.
Trump said the accuracy of the election results would be jeopardized by mail-in voting.
“Mail-In Voting, unless changed by the courts, will lead to the most CORRUPT ELECTION in our Nation’s History! #RIGGEDELECTION."
Meanwhile, Attorney General William Barr warned those who were pushing mail-in voting were "playing with fire."
The Democrats, however, continue to push ahead with their vote-by-mail, citing health concerns from the coronavirus pandemic
In May, House Republicans sued House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for pushing proxy voting in order to help with the nationwide vote-by-mail campaign.
The House Speaker also introduced a $3.6 billion bill to the sole reason of pushing mail-in voting through.
In June, Trump later warned mail-in ballots being printed in foreign countries would be'rigged.'
"RIGGED 2020 ELECTION: MILLIONS OF MAIL-IN BALLOTS WILL BE PRINTED BY FOREIGN COUNTRIES, AND OTHERS. IT WILL BE THE SCANDAL OF OUR TIMES!"
