Conservative political commentator Buck Sexton appeared on “The Sara Carter Show” on Monday, during which he said he thinks that President Donald Trump currently has very low chances of of somehow retaining his seat in the Oval Office.

When asked by host Sara A. Carter for his thoughts on the election, he started off by criticizing the major news outlets for calling the election for President-elect Joe Biden the Saturday following Election Day despite the allegations of election fraud and misconduct.

“They’re asking us to believe a lot to think that Joe Biden won the way that he did in the places that he did, I would say this is clearly reasonable suspicion for all of the things that we’re doing,” Sexton said when asked about his thoughts on the election. “So I think it’s completely legitimate to check and to recheck and to see what’s going on.”

He then focused on the allegations and his belief that they should be investigated, saying, “I think that it’s important for not just this election, but for the next one, that we get the answers […] to questions people have right now about whether there was fraud, about whether this was in fact not just a vote that we know was marred with irregularities, but where there was also cheating.”

“But,” Sexton emphasized, “they’ve got to produce the goods on our side. It can’t just be innuendo and assumption.”

On top of that, Carter then asked Sexton if he thinks President Trump has a chance of somehow retaining the presidency. “10% shot at this point,” Sexton replied. “Maybe five.”

New York’s Democratic party is battling over the constitutionality of voter laws. On December 9, the New York City Council will vote on a law to allow green-card holders and residents with work permits to vote in municipal elections.

“Around 808,000 New York City residents who have work permits or are lawful permanent residents would be eligible to vote under the legislation, which has the support of 34 of 51 council members, a veto-proof majority” reports Fox News.

“It’s important for the Democratic Party to look at New York City and see that when voting rights are being attacked, we are expanding voter participation,” Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, a sponsor of the bill and Democrat who represents the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, told the New York Times. Rodriguez immigrated from the Dominican Republic and became a U.S. citizen in 2000.

Fox News reports:

Laura Wood, Chief Democracy Officer for the mayor’s office, said at a hearing on the bill in September that the law could violate the New York State Constitution, which states that voters must be U.S. citizens age 18 or older.

Mayor Bill de Blasio indicated he could veto the bill following the September hearing.
“We’ve done everything that we could possibly get our hands on to help immigrant New Yorkers—including undocumented folks—but…I don’t believe it is legal,” de Blasio told WNYC radio at the time.

Mayor-elect Eric Adams, however, submitted testimony to the September hearing in favor of the bill. “In a democracy, nothing is more fundamental than the right to vote and to say who represents you and your community in elected office…Currently, almost one million New Yorkers are denied this foundational right.”

The legislation was first introduced two years ago, but had not yet gained traction due to the legal concerns.
