Biden Lawyer Accuses Trump of Trying to 'Interfere with the Inevitable'
Remarks come as media continue to call Biden 'President-elect'
Joe Biden's lawyers have accused President Donald Trump of attempting to "interfere with the inevitable."
The remarks come as votes continue to be recounted and disputed as the Trump campaign launched multiple lawsuits in different states.
Tim Murtaugh, the communications director for the Trump campaign and general counsel Matt Morgan and campaign counsel Thor Hearne, announced another lawsuit for Michigan on Tuesday.
The White House and Trump political appointees have told officials not to begin working with the Biden transition team until General Services Administration makes ascertainment that Biden has won the election.
Despite the media declaring Biden as President-elect, the GSA has yet to determine that Biden is the winner officially.
But Biden legal team disputed the GSA's characterization of the status and panned the refusal to concede from Trump and his backers.
"For somebody to judge how this is done in the past, they should look to the past and with the exception of Florida 2000, which is a very bad example, I think, as you well know, certainly not at all analogous to this situation," Biden legal adviser Bob Bauer said Tuesday.
"The ascertainment, as it's called, would have been done by now."
Biden campaign General Counsel Dana Remus said:
"I think that there's every indication from every corner that President Trump, his campaign, his allies are trying everything to interfere with the inevitable.
"But we are pushing forward, and we are confident that the inevitable is a very successful administration."
In September, Biden was asked if he would “pledge not to declare victory until the election is independently certified” by Fox News' Chris Wallace during the first presidential debate.
The former Vice President's answer was "yes," which is the opposite of what he is doing now.
On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell asserted Trump is “100 percent within his legal rights” to probe the allegations of voter fraud and request a recount.
“No states have yet certified their election results,” McConnell said.
“The core principle here is not complicated."
"In the United States of America, all legal ballots must be counted; any illegal ballots must not be counted.”
“The process should be transparent or observable by all sides, and the courts are here to work through concerns. Our institutions are actually built for this,” he continued.
Meanwhile, Attorney General Bill Barr ordered the Department of Justice (DOJ) to launch investigations into counting irregularities in several states.
