‘Not a big deal!’ Jesse Watters explains how Trump had ‘every legal right’ to submit alternate slate of electors

Fox News host Jesse Watters said that “everybody has the right to be suspicious in this country,” even when it comes to the 2020 election.

Special Counsel Jack Smith’s latest indictment of former President Donald J. Trump that could criminalize the questioning of election results is another chilling step into a dystopian future in which free speech itself could become illegal if it contradicts the ruling regime, much like some of history’s most despotic communist countries.

Jesse Watters and his fellow panelists on “The Five” discussed the arraignment of Trump who will soon face a hostile Washington, D.C. jury that could send him to prison for the rest of his life for the high crime of challenging the results of the 2020 election which he contends was rigged against him.

“Everybody has the right to be suspicious in this country,” he said.

“If you have a COVID election, where they blow out all of the signature requirements, they blow out all the deadlines, and then they blast out all these unsolicited ballots into the ecosystem with no chain of custody, you’re not suspicious? You have a right to be suspicious,” Watters said of an election when the pandemic was exploited by Democrats to implement sweeping new mail-in voting rules completely outside of the normal democratic process.

“And all these state legislators had no power to do anything about it. It was just done via judicial fiat. And then Zuckerberg lands, I think it was a half-a-billion layers over all these election volunteers, all over the state worker acti…these people were activists that were running this thing,” he added.

“So, if someone sends you an affidavit and says, “There’s monkey business in Detroit,” the president has every legal right to call the… you know, Michigan state legislature and say, “Can you guys look into this? Maybe you want to send an alternative slate of electors for me,” he said, defending Trump’s calling for alternate electors.

One prominent GOP lawmaker who recognizes communism when she sees it spoke out with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) posting a video to Twitter/X on the dismantling of the entire American legal system for the purpose of getting Trump.

“So today President Trump is being indicted in Washington, D.C. in a court with a jury of his so-called peers. Those are not his peers. Everybody knows this. Everyone knows that he has no shot of a fair trial in the Washington, D.C. court system. No Republican has a shot at a fair trial in the Washington, D.C. courts. But let’s also talk about the real situation. He’s being indicted for saying the election was stolen,” the Georgia Republican said in the video which was recorded in a fitness center where she was working out.

“You know, who else said the election was stolen? Hillary Clinton said the election was stolen, and then everybody parroted her talking points,” she said. “Stacey Abrams said her election was stolen running for governor here in Georgia and then everybody parroted her talking points.”

“Those who are holding the power and controlling, basically holding the power of the Constitution right now are putting the Constitution through a paper shredder by what they are doing with the Department of Justice,” the congresswoman added.

“This is not justice. This is the greatest injustice. This is actual real communism in America. The Biden administration is arresting and trying to put in jail their top political opponent, Donald Trump. Why? Because they’re watching the polls and they know that he’s going to win. This is a serious situation,” she said.

“So for everyone that’s talking to me about the ‘Constitution, Marjorie, the Constitution,’ I’m sorry. It feels pretty much like we’re post-Constitution because it feels like communism in America today when President Trump is being indicted,” Greene added.
