Team Trump attorney Jenna Ellis is advising the president against use of the Insurrection Act as he continues to contest the results of the November election.

The Insurrection Act of 1807 is a federal law that gives the president the authority, under very specific circumstances, to deploy the U.S. armed forces to quell civil disorder, rebellion, or insurrection. As explained by Ellis, in this case it would involve the president taking “the military and going to seize assets in state sovereignties,” for example the Dominion Voting Systems machines.

“Certainly, I would not advise that the American people want that” because of the “precedent that it would set,” said Ellis.

“We have a constitutional process for a reason, and we have the judicial branch that really does need to step in,” she told “The Water Cooler” host David Brody. “I think that the Supreme Court absolutely let the American people down by refusing to take up the Texas case.”

Despite her disappointment in the judicial branch and the behavior of some state lawmakers, Ellis emphasized that use of the Insurrection Act is not how the founders envisioned the law being applied. The framers put in place guardrails that come before use of “the military option,” she said.
