Harvard Law School professor Laurence Tribe claimed there is a chance that neither Joe Biden nor Donald Trump will be president for the next four years.
Tribe, who is a vocal critic of President Trump, argued on Friday’s edition of The ReidOut that if the winner of the election is not determined by Jan. 20, 2021, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the third in line for the presidency, would assume the office.
“They’re trying to make it look chaotic, but there is a fail-safe mechanism built into the Constitution itself. And that is no matter how much dust [Trump] throws into the gears, at high noon on Jan. 20, 2021, if there has not been a new president elected, at that point, Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the House, becomes president of the United States,” he said on MSNBC.
