Lawyer urged martial lawA lawyer pushing the baseless claim of massive fraud in the 2020 election urged former President Donald Trump to overturn his loss through steps that would be viewed as “martial law,” according to a memo published online on Saturday by the New York Times.

Measures that attorney William Olson proposed Trump take included replacing the acting attorney general if he refused to contest the vote in the U.S. Supreme Court and naming a new White House counsel to identify powers that Trump could use “to ensure a fair election count,” the memo showed.

Olson appeared to suggest those powers included ordering “sampling from lists of registered voters,” the memo showed.

“Our little band of lawyers is working on a memorandum that explains exactly what you can do,” Olson wrote to Trump in the memo, which was dated Dec. 28, 2020. “The media will call this martial law, but ... that is 'fake news' -- a concept with which you are well familiar.”
