US President Donald Trump has vowed to challenge his election defeat in court. His campaign team, Republicans and Trump supporters have filed lawsuits in several major oscillating states, but the promised legal victories have yet to be fulfilled.
Trump and his allies have filed 17 lawsuits since Election Day on November 3. Although these things differ in detail, the ultimate goal is the same: to prevent the states from confirming the final election results in the coming weeks and to prevent the Democratic election of Joe Biden as president by the Election College in mid-December.
Trump and the Republican Party often ask voters to fund legal battles and reconsiderations. From Excellent print However, it appears that most of the money will not be used for this, but it will end up in the party’s coffers and the president’s political action committee.
The Trump team has little legal success
The offensive tactics of Trump and his allies can be broadly divided into two categories: allegations of alleged irregularities during the election process and complaints about different rules for processing postal votes between different districts in a state.
In fact things are not going smoothly for the President. Last Friday, cases were lost in Michigan and Pennsylvania, and the Trump campaign itself ended a lawsuit in Arizona because gains do not change the outcome of the election.
Republicans dropped four other tests Monday, including one in Pennsylvania, the most significant attack on election results to date. The government was accused of violating the fundamental rights of voters by allowing postal voting procedures to vary slightly from district to district. The law firm representing Trump withdrew from the case last Thursday.
So far, Trump’s team has won only one legal victory: a judge in Pennsylvania has ruled that a small number of postal votes must be rejected after November 3 from voters who do not identify themselves correctly. The votes in question have not yet been counted, thus making no difference to the current conclusion of that state.
There is no conclusive evidence of fraud so far
Trump insists Biden’s victory was due to widespread electoral fraud. Reliable evidence of this has not yet been presented in any court case, and there are not enough votes in any state to make a difference to the winner in that case.
Last Friday, a Michigan judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by two Republican poll observers. They accused the Detroit vote counters of fraud and asked the judge to invalidate 867,000 votes from across the country (Wayne). However, he concluded that the couple simply did not understand how the counting process works.
In another case in the same state, the evidence was the statement of a Republican pollster who said he had been asked by an unnamed person to change the date on several votes. “” I heard someone say something, “the judge said.” Explain to me how it does not listen? Come on. “
The ‘battle room’ was mainly used by pranksters
“The Trump campaign continues to hope to find a judge who can handle cases like Tweet,” said Justin Levitt, a Loyola law school scientist. CNN, Indicates the unbounded nature of words on Twitter. “Again and again, every person they meet has said, ‘Sorry, we are dealing with justice here.’
Voters were invited to call for a tip if there was evidence of fraud. Most working telephone operators now closed ‘Battle Room‘The bells rang mainly from the Jokers and the Bile Spots. Callers who got on the phone in good faith often complained about things like “ruthless looks” from Democratic election officials.
