His legal efforts have gained NOT a THING….
They make the daily media pages making them happy in getting attention with the story …
Trump’s supporters KNOW their guy has lost…
Trump, who has actually admitted such in a tweet, and with his flailing comments and efforts….
But Trump keeps working on making them feel sorry for ‘him’ , the hell with the process, which IS working fine, and actually validating Biden’s win to a stronger degree….
The show goes on….
That while Joe Biden & Co. quietly go about the task of putting together his people to take over the running of the country try and trying to put things back into some sort of normalcy ….
The Trump campaign’s effort to change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election increasingly is moving from a legal setting to the court of public opinion, where the campaign continues to sow doubt about the contest’s integrity and hopes to win over public officials with a role in certifying the results.
The shift in focus coincides with the appointment of Rudolph Giuliani to head the campaign’s legal effort. The former New York mayor’s strategy reportedly entails a longshot bid to pressure Republican lawmakers in key battleground states to approve pro-Trump electors rather than certify their state’s popular vote.
Although the campaign has little success to show in the courts, at least by any traditional measure, the flood of post-election litigation is likely a major contributor to the perception among Trump’s supporters that the vote was tainted by widespread fraud. About half of Republicans believe Trump rightfully won the election, but that it was stolen from him by widespread fraud, and nearly seven in 10 Republicans said the election was rigged, according to a Reuters poll.
“Whereas most ordinary Americans view the courts, politics and the media as separate spheres, Trump understands them all as information battlegrounds—avenues of influence to the central goal of casting doubt,” wrote Jon Rauch, a senior fellow in governance studies at the Brookings Institution.
A dizzying 24 hours of developments in Michigan and Pennsylvania shows the interplay between the Trump campaign’s seemingly scattershot legal effort, the stoking of his supporters’ distrust of the election result, and Trump’s influence campaign over public officials who hold levers of power in the mechanics of the election.
The Trump campaign’s legal team shocked many court watchers on Thursday when they used court filings to make the dubious claim that a Democratic stronghold in Michigan had failed to certify its election results. The move capped off a remarkable turn of events that began Tuesday night when the four-member team of the Wayne County canvassing board gathered to certify its votes.
The two Republican members of the bipartisan panel initially refused to certify the results, citing concerns about widespread irregularities. A public pressure campaign quickly ensued and the GOP board members reversed their positions, agreeing to certify the results.
But on Wednesday the board members filed sworn affidavits saying they had been unduly pressured and misled by Michigan state elections officials into certifying, and making clear they sought to rescind their approval.
A spokesperson for the Michigan Secretary of State’s office told The Hill there was no way for the Wayne County Republican members to undo the certification….
Shrill Rudy Giuliani, who is becoming more of joke, is trying again to sell legal bull shit….
Separately, Giuliani and a team of attorneys overseeing Trump’s legal challenges to the vote count in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and elsewhere levied various claims of fraud at a press conference Thursday that levied various claims of fraud.
Giuliani alleged that the president was a victim of a scheme by dozens of Democratic election officials from Detroit, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and other major cities that contributed to Biden getting more votes, even though Trump also improved over his 2016 performance in those traditionally Democratic areas.
“This was not an individual idea of 10 or 12 Democrat bosses. This was a plan. You would have to be a fool not to realize that,” Giuliani said at the presser from the Republican National Committee headquarters.
Giuliani and attorney Sidney Powell, a fixture on Fox News prime-time programming who represents former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, made clear that their goal was to overturn the results in several states Biden is leading or has been projected as the winner.
Giuliani and Powell failed to produce evidence of their claims beyond holding up sworn affidavits from citizens who alleged they witnessed suspicious behavior. Giuliani did not commit to sharing his evidence with the press so they could fully vet his claims, and one reporter noted the Trump campaign is not asking for a recount in Wisconsin counties where the Dominion Voting Systems machines were used…..
The President has been reduced to sulking during his last two months in the Nations’s White House, firing people and trying to ram thru things he was unable to get done in four years and that Biden could cancel…..
