The group of experts who led former President George W. Bush's legal efforts in the aftermath of the 2000 Presidential Election, state that President Trump has "no chance" of success in his own attempts to challenge the results of the election.
In multiple interviews with Bloomberg, several individuals who were involved with the Bush campaign's efforts to halt a recount in Florida during the 2000 Presidential Election - a move that allowed Bush to take a slim lead over his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Al Gore - stated that President Trump had to path towards replicating a similar result in this election.
Benjamin Ginsburg, the 2000 Bush Campaign's national counsel, stated that “You can’t just say, ‘This election’s tainted, throw it out', - you have to have some specificity, and so far, they’re sorely lacking in specificity". Barry Richards, who led the Bush Campaign's legal efforts during the Florida recount, added that "If the court were to overturn this election on that basis, they’d be disenfranchising many thousands of voters just because somebody said there was some irregularity in a particular place".
Allies of the Bush Campaign, all of whom who worked during the 2000 Presidential Election recount efforts held similar opinion on President Trump's chances to extract a favourable result through this strategy, with Ted Olson - a Bush Campaign legal representative - stating that "I do believe the election is over, we do have a new president".
The Trump Campaign has been mounting aggressive legal efforts in Pennsylvania, in an effort to delay the certification and verification of the state's election results, attempts that have yet to see any success.
