Trump’s Allies Can’t Accept Reality, So They Try To Commit Voter Fraud
November 17, 2020
Trump and his allies are trying to do everything they can to create evidence of voter fraud and change the election results, even going as far as pressuring Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State to commit voter fraud himself. Trump’s legal “strategy” continues to suffer embarrassing defeats in court because there is nothing they can do to change the reality that President-elect Biden won the election.
Trump’s allies have tried to pressure Georgia’s Republican Secretary of State to toss legally cast ballots in an effort to reverse Trump’s loss.
Washington Post: “Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said Monday that he has come under increasing pressure in recent days from fellow Republicans, including Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.), who he said questioned the validity of legally cast absentee ballots, in an effort to reverse President Trump’s narrow loss in the state…Graham also asked whether Raffensperger had the power to toss all mail ballots in counties found to have higher rates of nonmatching signatures, Raffensperger said. Raffensperger said he was stunned that Graham appeared to suggest that he find a way to toss legally cast ballots.”
Trump’s legal escapade further devolved into farce yesterday as his campaign tried to replace the entire team handling his baseless lawsuit in Pennsylvania hours before a hearing.
Politico: “The game of musical chairs among lawyers pursuing President Donald Trump’s court challenges to the election results continued on Monday evening, as the campaign tried to replace the entire team handling the campaign’s federal lawsuit seeking to block certification of Pennsylvania’s results. A court filing said Marc Scaringi, a Harrisburg, Pa., attorney, conservative talk radio host and former Senate candidate, was taking over the case. The move came just hours before a potentially make-or-break court hearing scheduled for Tuesday afternoon on motions by Pennsylvania state and county officials to dismiss the lawsuit. The legal escapade devolved into farce on Monday night as the federal judge rejected a move by the campaign to postpone that key hearing.”
Trump and his allies continue to have a very bad time in court because the simple reality is that Trump lost and there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud.

The country’s top computer scientists and election security experts rebuked Trump’s baseless claims of voter fraud.
New York Times: “Fifty-nine of the country’s top computer scientists and election security experts rebuked President Trump’s baseless claims of voter fraud and hacking on Monday, writing that such assertions are ‘unsubstantiated or are technically incoherent.’”
Even Trump’s own national security adviser has now admitted that Biden would be certified the winner of the election and vowed to proceed with the transition process.
NBC News: “President Donald Trump’s National Security Council is preparing for ‘a very professional transition,’ because it looks like Joe Biden has won the election, national security adviser Robert O’Brien said in comments that aired Monday.”
