    Trump is again promising big voter fraud news to be released next week.

    He made the same remark last weekend and nothing materialized this past week, other than Giuliani and Powell making increasingly unhinged contentions about voter fraud.



    Transition Highlights: Trump Returns to Golf Course as World Leaders Discuss Pandemic

    excerpt:

    "“Big voter fraud information coming out concerning Georgia. Stay tuned!” Mr. Trump tweeted on Saturday morning.

    In reality, Georgia Republicans on Friday delivered a blow to his attempts to undo the election results. The secretary of state, Brad Raffensperger, announced that President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. had defeated Mr. Trump by 12,670 votes. Gov. Brian Kemp, also a Republican, said he would sign the certification. Mr. Trump has been furious at Mr. Kemp for not helping him in his attempt to undo the election results in his state.

    Since the election, Mr. Trump has taken no questions from reporters. But he has played golf on Nov. 7, 8, 14, 15 and 21"

    Two of Michigan's Republican state senators, Barrett and Nesbitt, apparently met with Trump along with Shirkey and Chatfield. They were seen exiting Trump International Hotel on Saturday.


    Transition Highlights: Trump Returns to Golf Course as World Leaders Discuss Pandemic

    excerpt:

    On Saturday, multiple state legislators from Michigan were photographed departing the Trump International Hotel in Washington after a meeting with the president on Friday.

    Several lawmakers including Mike Shirkey, the leader of the State Senate; Lee Chatfield, the House speaker; and State Senator Tom Barrett were known to have traveled to Washington to attend the meeting. State Senator Aric Nesbitt also appeared to have been seen leaving the hotel. Photos of Mr. Chatfield and others having drinks in the Trump hotel lobby Friday night were shared on Twitter on Saturday.

    If the board deadlocks on certifying the election results, Democrats will most likely take the matter to the State Court of Appeals with a request to order the Board of Canvassers to do its statutory duty and certify the results. If the board still deadlocks, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer could act to remove the board members for failing to do their jobs.""

    Rumors circulated early after the election that Trump might take his election loss on the road and portray it as a 'victory tour' to drum up donations to promote his attempt to overthrow the election results. It hasn't happened.

    About the closest Trump has done to that is to drive past pro-Trump protesters in DC on the way to his golf course.

    Wisconsin officials: Trump observers obstructing recount

    Wisconsin officials: Trump observers obstructing recount

    excerpt:

    "A steady stream of Republican complaints in Milwaukee was putting the recount far behind schedule, county clerk George Christenson said. He said many Trump observers were breaking rules by constantly interrupting vote counters with questions and comments.

    “That’s unacceptable,” he said. He said some of the Trump observers “clearly don’t know what they are doing.”

    Tim Posnanski, a county election commissioner, told his fellow commissioners there appeared to be two Trump representatives at some tables where tabulators were counting ballots, violating rules that call for one observer from each campaign per table. Posnanski said some Trump representatives seemed to be posing as independents.

    At one recount table, a Trump observer objected to every ballot that tabulators pulled from a bag simply because they were folded, election officials told the panel.

    Posnanski called it “prima facie evidence of bad faith by the Trump campaign.” He added later: “I want to know what is going on and why there continues to be obstruction.”"

    In Wisconsin, long shot recount may just be prelude to court

    In Wisconsin, long shot recount may just be prelude to court

    excerpt:

    "CHICAGO (AP) — President Donald Trump’s hopes to reverse his election loss in Wisconsin hinge on closing a deficit of some 20,500 votes, an almost impossibly high bar that spurs speculation his true goal is building a case for legal challenges that could win favor in the state’s conservative-controlled Supreme Court.

    Trump’s recount petition makes clear he plans to attack absentee ballots, used far more heavily by Joe Biden’s supporters, in the partial recount that covers just Milwaukee and Dane counties — Wisconsin’s biggest and most liberal."

    Federal judge throws out Trump lawsuit.


    Judge tosses 'speculative' Trump lawsuit challenging Biden win in Pennsylvania

    excerpt:

    "A federal judge on Saturday dismissed a lawsuit filed by President Donald Trump’s campaign that sought to throw out millions of mail-in votes in Pennsylvania, dealing a major blow to Trump’s flailing efforts to overturn his Nov. 3 election loss to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden.

    U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, described the case as “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations.”

    Brann added that he “has no authority to take away the right to vote of even a single person, let alone millions of citizens.”"

    OUCH! Trump Legal Team’s Supposed Evidence of Fraud is From the WRONG STATE
    By Charlie Nash
    Nov 20th, 2020, 11:12 am

    Trump Team's Evidence of Fraud in Michigan is from Minnesota

    excerpt:

    "President Donald Trump’s lawyers have seemingly confused Michigan with Minnesota in an affidavit attempting to prove 2020 election fraud.

    In their effort to demonstrate voter irregularities in the state of Michigan — which Trump was projected to have lost to Joe Biden — Trump’s lawyers appeared to mistake Michigan’s abbreviation “MI” for Minnesota."

    In scathing opinion, federal judge dismisses Trump campaign lawsuit in Pennsylvania

    U.S. District Judge Matthew W. Brann granted a request from Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar to dismiss the suit, which alleged that Republicans had been illegally disadvantaged because some counties allowed voters to fix errors on their mail ballots.

    The judge’s decision, which he explained in a scathing 37-page opinion, was a thorough rebuke of the president’s sole attempt to challenge the statewide result in Pennsylvania.

    Brann wrote that Trump’s campaign had used “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations” in its effort to throw out millions of votes.

    “In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state,” Brann wrote.

    Trump was beaten in Pennsylvania by Joe Biden, who currently holds a lead over the president of more than 81,000 votes. Counties are due to file their official results Monday to Boockvar, who will then certify the statewide tallies.

    Sen. Patrick J. Toomey (R-Pa.) said in a statement after Brann’s decision that Trump had “exhausted all plausible legal options” in the state and acknowledged that Biden won the election. “I congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala D. Harris on their victory,” said Toomey

    In the PA lawsuit, the Trump campaign tried an associational standing ploy. It didn't work

    It's competitive standing argument didn't work either.



    Trump's Pennsylvania Election Case Was Ruined In Court

    excerpt:

    “Prohibiting certification of the election results would not reinstate the Individual Plaintiffs’ right to vote,” Brann wrote. “It would simply deny more than 6.8 million people their right to vote.”

    The Trump campaign’s argument for why it had standing to bring the case was “particularly nebulous,” Brann wrote, explaining that the lawyers hadn’t clearly stated what the campaign’s injury was, so he had to do his own analysis of each of the cases cited by the campaign to “piece together” the theory. The judge found that the campaign’s interests were different from those of voters — knocking down their argument for what’s known as “associational standing” — and that they weren’t claiming that an ineligible candidate was on the ballot — knocking down their argument for what’s known as “competitive standing.”
