On Monday, the former Special Assistant to President Trump, Boris Epshteyn joined Dr. Gina Loudon on Real America’s Voice.
Epshteyn said that no one can state for certain that it would be unconstitutional for former President Donald Trump to be reinstated to the presidency since the U.S. Constitution does not prohibit reinstatement and the issue has never been ruled upon.

According to Just the News reports:
During an interview with Dr Gina Loudon on Real America’s Voice, Epshteyn, a former Trump 2020 strategic advisor, predicted that the matter will land in the nation’s high court.
Epshteyn said that “the interplay of the 10th Amendment” to the U.S. Constitution, the 12th Amendment, and Article II, “would suggest that states do have a right to decertify. And from then, it’s an open question what happens next.”

He said that after the information becomes available from state audits, “decertification should happen because that’s the correct step from the states. And from then on in terms of deciding what to do about the federal election, well, there’s gonna be an open question,” he noted, remarking that he believes that the matter will go before the Supreme Court.
Business Insider previously reported that almost one in three Republican voters said it’s at least somewhat likely that former President Donald Trump will be “reinstated” in 2021, showed a new Morning Consult poll, though there’s no feasible way for this to occur. This included 17% of GOP voters who said it’s “very likely” Trump will be reinstated.
Meanwhile, most GOP voters (61%) and the vast majority of Americans overall (72%) — including 84% of Democrats — said it’s unlikely Trump will be restored to the presidency this year.
