Trump’s Big Lay on the 2020 results faces legal and political attacks in major swing states

Trump and his conspiratorial supporters are eagerly awaiting the end of a complex audit of Marigopa County’s results in Arizona, but regardless of its final statement, it will have no bearing on the 2020 election results as the election has already been certified. . Trump repeated his election lies A rally Saturday night in Ohio, But last week’s ranges underscore the fact that their options for continuing to run in the 2020 election are narrowing.

“Our clear finding is that the results represent the actual results of the ballots cast by the people of Michigan,” the committee, led by Republican State Sen. Ed McBroom, said in a statement. “The panel strongly recommends that citizens use a critical eye and ears on those who put forward false theories that can be proven for their own benefit.”

Then, on Thursday in Georgia, a judge dismissed a case alleging fraudulent postal voting in Fulton County, the state’s largest district, in last year’s election – examine nearly 150,000 mail-in votes with one-foot more powerful microscopes at the behest of pro – Trump supporters.

The judge dismissed seven of the nine claims in the case against Fulton County officials, allowing only the plaintiffs’ request for digital images of ballots to move forward under the state’s Open Records Act. Biden won the state by a margin of 12,000 votes, and Georgia officials have already audited the 2020 results three times.

“Last year, I told President Trump and others pushing Big Live to ‘shut up or shut up.’ Said.

On the same day, Giuliani, who was Trump’s personal lawyer and one of Trump’s closest allies in presenting lies about the 2020 election, Was suspended from complying with the law He found a court of appeals in New York State to make “proven false and misleading statements” about the 2020 election.

In a ruling issued following disciplinary proceedings, the court ruled that Giuliani, a former Manhattan U.S. attorney, had “irrefutable evidence that the courts, lawmakers, and the public were exposed to a large number of false and misleading statements that could be proven by the courts, lawmakers and the public.” Regarding Trump’s failed attempt at re-election. “

The court wrote that Giuliani’s “conduct immediately threatens the public interest and guarantees an interim suspension from legal proceedings.”

Trump has been accused of actions that challenge his lies about the 2020 election. He attacked his political opponents on Saturday in front of an Ohio crowd chanting “Trump has won” and issued statements with more lies last week.

Targeting Michbro’s Michbrom and state Senate Republican leader Mike Shirkey, he added the phone numbers of the two senators in a statement: “Call those two senators now and do them the right thing, or vote for them from office!”

In another statement, He complained about the judiciary’s Georgia case: “Indeed, it must be the other way around! The people of Georgia must sue the government and their elected officials for holding a corrupt and rigorous 2020 presidential election, and for trying to suppress it. The vote of the American people in Georgia.”

He said of Giuliani: “Can you believe that New York wants to remove Rudy Giuliani, a great American patriot, from his legal license because he is already fighting against what has been proven to be a fraudulent election.”

Arizona Audit Folding

There may come another important moment when Trump’s lies about the electorate are led by a key executive who does not have the so-called censorship mandated by the state Senate Republicans and the experiential audit conducted by Florida – based cyber ninjas. Fraud on social media – are published.

The Twitter account for the audit tweeted Friday night that “the paper test and count is over today”. According to Arizona Audit Spokeswoman Randy Fullen, the 2020 presidential and U.S. Senate competition ended a few days ago with the individual hand count that saw both races.

But the Arizona Senate Republicans did not say when their report would be released.

“Everyone is eagerly waiting for the end!” Trump said in a statement Wednesday.

That is another lie.

Trump’s most staunch supporters are waiting for a report on the audit findings – which may first be presented to Republicans in the state Senate, who will then decide how to publish it.

However, experts and observers of Arizona’s activities in conducting and auditing elections have repeatedly stated that the methods of cyber ninjas are very flawed and can easily introduce errors in its final heights. Those issues are more likely to be used by Trump’s supporters as a propaganda tool than a document taken seriously outside the “Stop Theft” movement – a cry accepted by Trump and his supporters.

Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbes, a Democrat running for governor, maintains a list of issues on the floor of the Veterans Memorial College in Phoenix.

Recent updates: “Insecure cyber security practices” used by cyber ninjas; Wrong votes; And auditors who write directly on the original labels on Marigopa County ballot boxes, Hobbes’s document notes that “breaches contracts and calls into question the authenticity and integrity of all district records.”

The judiciary targets Georgia law

Legal wars and censorship are only one front of the current struggle for the 2020 election. In Republican-led states, including Florida, Georgia and Iowa, GOP lawmakers and governors have already enacted new laws that will make voting more difficult. Republican lawmakers in Michigan, Arizona, Texas and other states are also pushing for a referendum.

President Joe Biden’s Justice Department said Friday Case in the State of Georgia On its new regulatory voting law.

The non-existent law imposes new voter identification requirements on ballots, empowers state officials to take over local election boards, restricts the use of ballot boxes, and criminalizes access to them to provide voters with food and water.

Republicans have been pushing for the move to boost confidence in the post-2020 election, and Trump’s repeated and unsubstantiated allegations of fraud, but Democrats in the state have called for new legal voter repression and compared it to Jim Crow-era voting laws.

“These legislative actions come at a time when the black population in Georgia continues to grow and after a historic election that saw record voter turnout across the state, especially for non-voting, black voters are now more likely than white voters,” said Kristen Clark, head of the judicial civil rights division at a news conference. “Our complaint challenges a number of provisions of SP202 which were adopted with the intent of denying or curtailing equal access of black citizens to the political process.”

Georgia’s Brian Kemp, a Republican, issued a false statement in response to the department’s announcement that the case was “born out of the lies and misinformation put forward by the Biden administration against Georgia’s electoral integrity law from the outset.”

He accused the Kemp administration of “arming the US judiciary to undermine electoral integrity and enhance the power of the federal government in our democracy to carry out their left-left agenda.”
