Donald Trump stood before a White House lectern and delivered a 46-minute diatribe against the election that produced a win for Democrat Joe Biden, uttering a series of claims to back his baseless assertion that he really won.
"Some outright fraud, some irregularities".
Reactions from both sides were not immediately known before the scheduled Thursday hearing.
The comments come days after Trump finally admitted he would leave office if the Electoral College votes for Biden later this month. According to Fox 5 in Las Vegas. Even if somehow Republicans made a decision to vote as a block against recognizing Joe Biden's election, the Democratic-controlled House would not go along. "This is trial by allegation, not proof". But regardless of what their motivation is, if Congress did not pass a law permitting it under the election clause, Article One, Section Four of the United States Constitution again, then it's illegal and those votes should not be counted. The Trump campaign lawsuit was filed on Tuesday morning.
"This election was unfortunately stolen", Binnall said, 8 News Now reported, "We can not turn a blind eye with evidence like this". Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul said the campaign's latest complaints are akin to Jim Crow-style voter suppression.
The Nevada Native Vote Project denied that account as "categorically false" and branded assumptions that members of the nonpartisan advocacy group favored Biden the product of a "sloppy and racist investigation". Every reasonable American should be able to agree, based on what we have already documented, that we need a systematic analysis of the mail-in ballots to review the envelopes.
Russell also rejected the wide swaths of alleged illegal voting that the Trump campaign claimed had occured in the state, with ballots supposedly cast by tens of thousands of out-of-state residents, deceased individuals, or individuals impersonating other voters.
"The certificate's arrival at the National Archives means that our state has certified the results of the election and we have formally chosen the people who will represent us in the Electoral College", Secretary of State Bill Galvin said in a statement.
Hamilton said there was no way to know which candidate received allegedly tainted ballots.
And Trump challenged absentee ballots where voters declared themselves to be "indefinitely confined", a status that exempts them from having to show photo identification to cast a ballot, and one that was used much more heavily this year due to the pandemic.
Hamilton challenged Kamzol's credentials as an expert, but the judge said he wanted to hear Binnall's evidence.
The judge also wrote that he found numerous depositions and expert witnesses provided by the Trump campaign questionable, referring to several of the exhibits presented to the court as "unsound" or based on questionable methodology. There's even recent precedent for it: In January 2005, OH congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones and California senator Barbara Boxer challenged Ohio's decisive electoral votes due to concerns about possible voting-machine manipulation.
