Did Trump find any voter fraud in the states where he won?

That's the whole irony of this saga. Many of the swing states have Republican governors overseeing the election, and none of them found any problems:
Typical scenario:
Some local GOP officials called out the claims, such as Arizona's Republican Attorney General Mark Brnovich, who said that there was no fraud in the election, and no grand conspiracy to defeat Trump in Arizona.

"If indeed there was some great conspiracy, it apparently didn't work," Brnovich told Fox Business’ Neil Cavuto. "The county election official, who's a Democrat, lost, and other Republicans won."

I am glad to know the Republicans are so honourable and trustworthy. What a great loss for America. :(

I actually understand why republicans don't want to go against the turd. In him they found the perfect racist, xenophobic and pathological liar who appealed to the basic instincts of their mostly moronic supporters. That they are fed on fox diet helped as well.

Trump is purging officials who commit the ‘unforgivable sin of telling the truth’​



ct-donald-trump-celebrity-apprentice-20161208-2-764x430.jpg



CNN’s John Berman on Wednesday teed off on President Donald Trump for firing Chris Krebs, the former director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency who made waves in recent days by debunking false 2020 election fraud claims.

Berman started off by calling out Trump for attacking “dedicated civil servants while simultaneously trying to undermine the outcome of an election.”



“The president fired a key official at the Department of Homeland Security, whose crime apparently was to protect the integrity of the election and who committed the unforgivable sin in Trump World of telling the truth about the absence of widespread fraud,” Berman said.

Trump campaign plans to pay for partial recount in Wisconsin​



donald-trump-open-mouth-shutterstock-768x413.jpg


On Wednesday, Fox News’ John Roberts reported that the Trump campaign plans to file for recount in Wisconsin. This recount will reportedly be partial and only cover certain counties.

BREAKING: The @realDonaldTrump Campaign will be filing for a recount in the state of Wisconsin today
— John Roberts (@johnrobertsFox) November 18, 2020

UPDATE TO BREAKING: The @realDonaldTrump WI recount request will NOT be statewide – it will be a PARTIAL recount in several key counties. No word on WHICH counties yet.
— John Roberts (@johnrobertsFox) November 18, 2020

According to Wisconsin law, the president’s campaign is obligated to pay for the recount itself, which will cost them almost $8 million. The deadline to request the recount is today, which has led to speculation over whether or not the campaign would decide to go through with it.

As of Wednesday, results show President-elect Joe Biden carrying the state of Wisconsin by just over 20,000 votes — the closest margin of the three Midwestern “blue wall” states he flipped back after Trump carried them in his 2016 upset, but a large enough lead that a recount is unlikely to change the result. Winning the state of Wisconsin would only flip 10 electoral votes, which would not change the outcome of the presidential election as a whole.

Federal judge slams Trump’s new DACA rules as a ‘sad and inappropriate use of executive authority’​

Federal judge Nicholas Garaufis ruled over the weekend that President Trump’s new DACA rules are invalid. Now, he’s slamming the administration’s handling of the program in a hearing Wednesday, calling it “sad and inappropriate use of executive authority.”

“I just want you to understand that I believe that we should have a process, a legal process here, as everywhere else, but sadly, what we’re doing is impacting the lives of many, many people, who are buoyed by the Supreme Court decision in June and have been undermined by the conduct of the Department of Homeland Security since then, as I set forth in my decision,” Garaufis said according to CNN.

In his ruling on Saturday, Garaufis said that Chad Wolf was not legally serving as acting Homeland Security secretary when he enacted the new rules that limit applications and renewals for the program. As CNN points out, Wolf issued a memo in July saying that new applications for the Obama-era program would not be accepted and renewals would be limited to one year instead of two.

Trump campaign requests costly partial recount in Wisconsin​

The campaign has requested recounts in two counties where Joe Biden, the apparent winner of the state, is ahead by large margins.


The Trump campaign on Wednesday filed a petition for a partial recount in Wisconsin, where President Donald Trump trails President-elect Joe Biden, the apparent winner of the state, by more than 20,000 votes.

The campaign wired $3 million to the Wisconsin Election Commission for the long-shot bid to overturn the state results. In a statement, the campaign said it was asking for recounts in Milwaukee and Dane counties, mostly Democratic areas in which Biden defeated Trump by large margins. Biden captured more than 75 percent of the vote in Dane and more than 69 percent of the vote in Milwaukee.

Trump Posts News So Fake That Tucker Carlson Had To Apologize For It​



Orange Cockwomble - cnut.jpg

President Donald Trump posted some fake news on Tuesday night, sharing a Fox News story by Tucker Carlson that Carlson himself had already apologized for broadcasting.

Trump’s tweet linked to a report by Carlson claiming that dead people had voted in Georgia, a state won by President-elect Joe Biden.

DEAD PEOPLE VOTED” Trump shout-tweeted with a link to Carlson’s report, which noted in the first line that Carlson had to correct it. The initial story claimed that the late James Blalock had voted in the 2020 election. In reality, it was his widow who voted under the name “Mrs. James Blalock.”

Carlson apologized on the air on Friday.

Atlanta’s 11Alive News broke the story after simply knocking on the widow’s door to ask her about the vote.

“He’s not voting. He didn’t vote,” Agnes Blalock told the station. “It was me.”

11Alive’s Brendan Keefe said on Twitter that of the four supposed dead voters in Georgia that were highlighted by the Trump campaign, two were alive, one was dead but did not vote and a fourth remained under investigation.

Georgia officials said that despite Trump’s claims to the contrary there was no evidence of any widespread fraud in the state, which went Democratic in a presidential contest for the first time since 1992.

New legal filing asks court to allow Trump campaign to count Pennsylvania’s mail-in-ballots​


donald-trump-shutterstock.jpg


President Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign has issued a new legal filing asking the court to allow them to personally count the mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania.

“Due to confusion caused by the withdrawal of Plaintiffs’ lead counsel on Friday, Nov. 13, the Amended Complaint filed on Nov. 15 inadvertently withdrew numerous allegations contained in the original Complaint regarding the preclusion of observers at the canvassing of mail votes and the subsequent improper counting of mail votes in the seven Defendant County Boards of Election,” the court document states.

“Moreover, with the appearance of new counsel, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and the Scaringi Firm, and new factual developments, the Campaign intends to file a second amended complaint to make clear that there was intentional misconduct by the Defendant Boards of Election, which deliberately excluded Republican/Trump observers from the canvassing in order to facilitate counting mail ballots which did not comport with the signature, date, and other requirements of Pennsylvania law,” the document continues.

Then there’s this footnote: “As reported in the media, former counsel suffered threats of violence as well as economic reprisal for representing President Trump. Other counsel remaining in this case also received threats and is under the protection of U.S. Marshalls (sic). Needless to say, this proved disruptive.”

Page 3 of the court document states that the Trump campaign would like to obtain “access to the outside and inside of envelopes for the approximately 1.5 million mail ballots at issue – all public records – in the Defendant Counties, or, alternatively, a significant random sample from each county.”

The end-goal is spelled out: “This simple exercise will determine whether Plaintiffs can prove their case – that sufficient illegal ballots were counted that changed the result of the election. If so, the Court should set aside these votes and declare Trump the winner.”

Republicans fear Trump will make ‘risky policy decisions’ out of spite if they publicly concede he lost​



Screen-Shot-2020-10-05-at-4.51.57-PM.png


Republican lawmakers are privately coming to terms with President Donald Trump’s election loss, according to an Associated Press reporter, but they’re afraid to speak publicly in fear of what actions he might take in spite.

The president continues to challenge his election loss, but White House correspondent Jonathan Lemire told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Republicans are too afraid to admit it to the public.

“What we have seen is a growing examples in recents days of Republicans privately coming to terms with the election,” Lemire said. “No better example than when now Vice President-elect [Kamla] Harris who returned to the Senate floor for a vote, a number of Republican senators, some wearing masks, whispered congratulations. Lindsey Graham, who is one of Trump’s most vocal supporters, offered her a fist bump and offered her congratulations on the new post. Mark Meadows, there was discussion of what could be done in time two months of the Trump term, and we have had Republican senators now being more willing to cast doubt on the chances of these legal challenges, far-fetched legal challenges being mounted by Rudy Giuliani and others, but privately they’re not willing to go there.”

Trump campaign dismisses its own Michigan lawsuit in latest courtroom flop​



Trump-Justin-Follett-2-e1552430064870.jpg


Another day, another legal loss for President Donald Trump’s campaign.


The Trump campaign on Thursday filed a notice of voluntary dismissal (PDF) of its lawsuit in the United States District Court in the Western District of Michigan Southern Division in which it said it was no longer seeking to stop Wayne County from certifying its election results.

Strangely, the notice argued that it no longer needed to pursue this course of action because the “Wayne County board of county canvassers met and declined to certify the results of the presidential election,” despite the fact that the board voted unanimously this week to do just that.

“This morning we are withdrawing our lawsuit in Michigan as a direct result of achieving the relief we sought: to stop the election in Wayne County from being prematurely certified before residents can be assured that every legal vote has been counted,” said Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani in a statement.

I'm not sure about this. Someone said they rescinded the certification. They know a recount won't overcome such a large margin, so they're just gonna play dirty

Tracy Wimmer, a spokeswoman for Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, told the Free Press Wednesday she could not comment on an audit because a request for an audit is the subject of ongoing litigation surrounding the Nov. 3 election.

"There is no legal mechanism for them to rescind their vote," Wimmer said Thursday. "Their job is done and the next step in the process is for the Board of State Canvassers to meet and certify."link
