The effort IS falling apart…..
(Some of Trump’s lawyers have actually quit)
US Attorney ‘s joins the chorus denying ANY election vote fraud…
A Michigan judge Friday rejected Republicans’ requests to delay the certification of election results in Detroit, saying he saw no convincing evidence of election fraud at a center for counting absentee ballots.
Wayne County Circuit Chief Judge Timothy M. Kenny said that the allegations of misconduct, made by GOP poll-watchers and one Detroit election official, were “not credible.” Kenny said that the plaintiffs’ demand for an outside audit of the election in Michigan could delay the process so long that Michigan’s electors might not be selected in time to vote in the electoral college.
To grant the plaintiffs’ request, Kenny said, “would undermine faith in the Electoral System.”
Biden now leads in Michigan by about 148,000 votes….
Even the Trump campaign acknowledged Friday that its lawsuit in Arizona would not make a difference in the presidential race.
The suit had alleged “up to thousands” of allegedly mishandled ballots in Maricopa County would “prove determinative” in the presidential election. But its claims and goals were steadily watered down this week in court, as county officials said less than 200 votes for president were at stake. Biden leads by 11,000 votes in Arizona.
The campaign maintained in a Friday filing that two down-ballot races “remain at issue:” a Board of Supervisors seat and a state Senate seat. But lawyers for the Arizona Secretary of State, a defendant in the case, said that all claims were almost certainly moot, pending 3 p.m. local time Friday when Maricopa County expects to finish counting all its ballots.
The suit also does not allege the fraud Trump and his allies have warned about around the country — something an attorney for the president’s campaign, Kory Langhofer, emphasized repeatedly at a hearing Thursday. His arguments cut a sharp contrast with the “stop the steal” protests that have rallied outraged Trump supporters in Arizona….
The Supreme Court….
Has the Supreme Court hit the pause button on all things President Trump?
The justices for more than three weeks have been holding on to the president’s last-ditch plea to shield his private financial records from Manhattan’s district attorney.
No further action has come. Nor has the court acted on a separate request from the Trump campaign, pending for a week, to intervene in the case.
There is no deadline for the court to answer those questions, so the justices appear to be taking their time during the president’s battle to dispute his election defeat — and maybe even allowing the clock to run out….
President Trump’s campaign has ended a “voter fraud” hotline it established last week so people could report alleged instances of fraud after it was flooded with prank calls, CNNreports.
“Sixteen assistant U.S. attorneys specially assigned to monitor malfeasance in the 2020 election urged Attorney General William Barr on Friday to rescind his recent memorandum allowing investigators to publicly pursue allegations of ‘vote tabulation irregularities’ in certain cases before results are certified, saying they had not seen evidence of any substantial anomalies,” the Washington Post reports.
“The signers wrote that in the places where they served as district election officers, taking in reports of possible election-related crimes, there was no evidence of the kind of fraud that Barr’s memo had highlighted.”
