Just hours before the Electoral College was to meet on Monday and formally confirm the election of Joe Biden as 46th president, White House adviser Stephen Miller said on Fox News that the administration will be sending an “alternate slate of electors” for “contested states” that the Trump campaign maintains only went for Biden due to voter fraud, though they have yet to provide any evidence of that alleged fraud.
Appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Miller remarked:
“The only date in the Constitution is January 20th. So we have more than enough time to right the wrong of this fraudulent election result and certify Donald Trump as the winner of the election. As we speak, today, an alternate slate of electors in the contested states is going to vote, and we’re going to send those results up to Congress. This will ensure that all of our legal remedies will remain open. That means that if we win these cases in the courts, that we can direct that the alternate slate of electors be certified.”
Miller then added:
“The state legislatures in Georgia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania — can do the same, and likewise, Congress has that opportunity as well, to do the right thing. If you just cured three simple constitutional defects, Donald Trump is the winner of this election.”
Fox host Steve Doocy asked Miller if he was suggesting that electors in states that Biden won would suddenly switch their votes to Trump, to which he replied:
“That’s right. You have an alternate slate of electors in a state like say Wisconsin or in a state like Georgia and we’ll make sure that those results are sent up side by side, to congress, so that we have the opportunity, every day between now and January 20, to say that slate of electors and the contested states is the slate that should be certified to uphold a fair and free election and an honest result.”
Stephen Miller on Fox & Friends says “an alternative” group of electors is also voting today:

Despite what Miller says, his version of what will happen is little more than wishful thinking. States are not going to go against the will of the voters when there’s no proof that any fraud took place. And neither will Congress.
Miller’s right that January 20 is a key date. It’s the day that Joe Biden will officially become president.
