Trump and Giuliani are the Republican Party

What Trump Showed Us About America

Trump's lawyers are seeking to take the power of appointing electors away from state governors and secretaries of state, and give it to friendly state lawmakers from his party, saying the U.S. Constitution gives legislatures the ultimate authority.

That's why Sen. Bernie Sanders, who appealed to the same working-class constituency that Trump captured, was never going to be allowed to become the party's candidate. Instead, as in numerous other Trump campaign election cases, the Nevada filings focus on much smaller claims, including questions about the use of a scanning machine to verify signatures and whether observers had proper access to observe vote counting.

The meeting was not listed on Mr Trump's official public schedule. The meeting comes despite Republican efforts in Wayne County to hold up certification of the county's votes and in the wake of Trump's baseless claims of widespread fraud in the county, which is home to Detroit.

Michigan's state legislative leaders, Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield, both Republicans, will visit the White House at Trump's request, according to a source in MI.

What would happen if Congress were to receive two slates of electors from a state?

"It is hard to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American president", Romney added.

One of the members told Reuters that Trump called her after she agreed to certify the results. Trump not only would need three state legislatures to intervene against vote counts as they stand now, but then also have those actions upheld by Congress and, nearly certainly, the Supreme Court.

But their comments are among the sharpest of a slowly growing chorus of moderates who have either recognized Joe Biden as president-elect, called for the transition process to begin or called on Trump to concede the race.

The president on Friday again falsely claimed victory, declaring as an aside during a White House announcement on drug pricing, "I won, by the way, but you know, we'll find that out". The Trump team's tactics of subverting the election results is being played out in disturbing detail in MI, where his lawyers are attempting to invalidate votes in Wayne County, which includes black-majority Detroit, and which went to Biden by more than 90 per cent.

Trudeau warns that COVID-19 crisis could determine Canada's future
Tam says this could indicate that Canada is not testing enough, and is a clear sign that the spread of the virus is accelerating. Canada reported 315,751 cases of COVID-19 on Thursday, up by 4,642 from the day before, and 11,265 deaths, an increase of 79.

By law, Georgia's results were supposed to be certified by 5 p.m. Friday.

That Alexander, with nothing politically to lose, produced such a mealy-mouthed statement sheds light on the general Republican compliance to go along with Trump's charade.

Trump's effort to set aside the MI vote was sure to fail. They also could face legal liability, he said.

Bauer said of Trumps actions, which have included filing several unsuccessful law suits and and supporting far out conspiracy theories that "the harm is real", but added there is "no chance whatsoever that Donald Trump can be successful".

The Trump campaign said Thursday evening that it's not over and that they will pursue all "legal options" to make sure only legal ballots are counted.

"It's an abuse of office".

Trump allies who have also amplified false claims include Charlie Kirk, a conservative activist, who promoted misleading claims about "found ballots". The officials then attempted to rescind their certificationvotes the next day.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany hinted very strongly on Friday that one key reason for Donald Trump's post-election behaviour is payback for those who wronged him throughout his presidency.
