Trey Trainor is the Federal Election Commission Chairman. He told Newsmax on Friday that state law allows election observers to oversee clerks handling the ballots. But he says, if those observers were not allowed in the counting rooms then the election is illegitimate.

Trainor has confirmed that in his professional opinion, there has not been transparency in the election.

He said there is no legitimate reason for observers to be denied access to ballot counting.

This comes after Pennsylvania’s appellate court allowed Republican election observers to watch the ballot counting process from up to six feet away.

But Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi claimed the Republican observers were denied access even with the court order. In a video obtained by One America News Network Trump’s campaign got in a dispute with a lawyer working for the City of Philadelphia about the order not being enforced.

Trainor said that when the observers were permitted to watch, the goalpost had been moved away from the 6 feet required by the order. This is presumably in reference to Bondi’s claims that the barricades were moved up to six feet, but the counting machines were pushed to the back of the room.

Trainor is an election lawyer who represented Trump’s 2016 campaign. He says Trump’s lawsuits regarding the election are valid allegations and will likely end up in the Supreme Court.
