There's 'not a legal' or political path for Trump to remain in office, says Gore recount lawyer
Attorney David Boies, who represented former Vice President Al Gore in the 2000 election recount fight, told CNBC on Thursday that President Donald Trump's efforts to challenge the election results are futile. "There is no way that Trump can overturn these election results," said Boies, chairman of the New York City-based law firm Boies Schiller Flexner. The election results have not been finalized yet, and the Electoral College has yet to officially cast its ballots. "There simply is not a path — not a legal path, not a political path and, as I say, certainly not a military coup path — for President Trump to remain in office," Boies said. Boies defended Trump's right to take election disputes to court, as his one-time client, Gore, did in the razor-thin 2000 election.cnbc.com
