the results of the presidential election:

    By Blake Ellis and Melanie Hicken | CNN They were there to “Stop the Steal” and to keep the President they revered in office, yet records show that some of the rioters who stormed the US Capitol did not vote in the very election they were protesting. One was Donovan Crowl, an ex-Marine who charged toward a Capitol entrance in paramilitary garb on January 6 as the Pro-Trump crowd chanted “who’s our President?” Federal authorities later identified Crowl, 50, as a member of a self-styled militia organization in his home state of Ohio and affiliated with the extremist group the Oath Keepers. His mother told CNN that he previously told her “they were going to overtake the government if they…tried to take Trump’s presidency from him.” She said he had become increasingly angry during the Obama administration and that she was aware of his support for former President Donald Trump....
    President Trump on Wednesday slammed Vice President Mike Pence, saying he "didn’t have the courage" to decertify and return the results of the presidential election back to the states. "Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify," Trump tweeted Wednesday. "USA demands the truth!" The president’s tweets come after he pressured his vice president for the last several days, saying he had the power to decertify the results of the 2020 presidential election. PENCE, UNDER PRESSURE FROM TRUMP, SAYS HE DOES NOT HAVE 'UNILATERAL' AUTHORITY TO ACCEPT, REJECT ELECTORAL VOTES Pence, who is presiding over a joint session of Congress Wednesday to certify the Electoral College, said just before the session began that, despite...
    More than 74 million Americans who voted for President Donald Trump have justifiably lost confidence in the electoral system because election laws in decisive battleground states were ignored or altered outside of the legislative process. Tennesseans elected us to fight for their views and values in Washington, which certainly means upholding the rule of law, and we plan to exercise our constitutionally prescribed role of reviewing the electoral college results to ensure that those voices we represent are heard. Understandably, Americans are questioning the results of an election in which the laws designed to ensure fair and secure voting were rewritten at the last minute by unaccountable bureaucrats who had no authority to do so. The Electoral College is an essential element of our republic, and each American deserves to have complete confidence in our country’s election results. That’s why we are opposing the unconstitutional, unreliable election processes. We must...
    AT least 140 Republicans are reportedly planning to back President Donald Trump and vote against certifying Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election. Two GOP members of the House of Representatives told CNN this week that dozens of Republicans are set to vote against certifying the 78-year-old President-elect when Congress formally validates the Electoral College votes on January 6, 2021. 7At least 140 Republicans are reportedly planning to back President TrumpCredit: AFP or licensors 7Dozens of Republicans are reportedly set to vote against certifying Joe Biden's Electoral College win on January 6Credit: Getty Images - Getty The vote will declare who has claimed victory as the next president and vice president of the United States.

    Republican lawmakers in Pennsylvania say an "alarming discrepancy" in the presidential vote count is two times larger than the margin of President-elect Joe Biden's victory in the state. Their analysis, released on Monday by state Rep. Frank Ryan and more than a dozen colleagues, found different vote counts when comparing Election Day data from counties and the Statewide Uniform Registry of Electors, or SURE, system used by Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar. They also raised suspicions about there being tens of thousands fewer votes in the presidential race than overall ballots. Boockvar, a Democrat, cast the analysis as yet another misinformation effort designed to cast doubt on the integrity of the election. Wanda Murren, a spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of State, told the Washington Examiner that the "so-called analysis was based on incomplete data." President Trump seized on the GOP assessment, tweeting that the findings were more proof...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden further consolidated his status as president-elect this Thursday night with the projection of his victory also in the state of Arizona. With Arizona, the Democratic candidate sum eleven votes additional in the Electoral College and scale up all 290, 20 more than required to win the presidency. As of this Thursday night, Trump was projected as the winner of 217 votes. In the Arizona ballot, Biden reached a narrow lead of 11,000 votes, equivalent to 0.3 percentage points, and is on track to be the first Democratic hopeful to prevail there since Bill Clinton did in 1996. Four years ago, the current Republican president emerged victorious in that state with a 3.5 percentage point advantage over Hillary Clinton. Biden’s victory, however, has been questioned by Trump, who has denounced the existence of an alleged electoral fraud although he has not provided...
    (CNN)Federal prosecutors have charged a Staten Island, New York, man with making threats to kill and ordering others to kill politicians, law enforcement and people who were celebrating the results of the presidential election, according to court filings.Prosecutors say Brian Maiorana, 54, sent multiple death threats through an undisclosed social media platform "threatening to kill and ordering others to kill protestors, politicians and law enforcement officers" between September and Sunday, according to a criminal complaint unsealed Tuesday.At an initial appearance for Maiorana held remotely Tuesday, Assistant US Attorney Artie McConnell said Maiorana is a flight risk and "irremediable" danger to the community."The complaint makes clear that in the wake of the results of the presidential election, this defendant greatly exceeded what can be considered political hyperbole," McConnell said."He used words like 'carnage,' 'extermination,' 'assassination.'

    CHICAGO — With results from the presidential election hanging in the balance, hundreds of Chicagoans marched Wednesday night to demand that votes are counted completely and President Donald Trump honor the results should he lose. Around 1,000 people gathered in Downtown Chicago as part of a pre-planned, post-election protest organized by the Chicago Alliance Against Racist & Political Repression. About two dozen neighbors gathered in the Northwest Side for their own march. Activists from several local groups joined the Downtown demonstration to reinforce their longstanding demands for community oversight of the Chicago Police Department, anti-racist city policies, and economic and rent relief for unemployed people — regardless of who became the next president. But as the president and Republican operatives launched widespread legal battles Wednesday to try to affect vote-counting in battleground states — even going so far as to falsely claim victory even when several key states had not...

Corona virus International spread. In a July interview, the president similarly refused to accept the results. “I have to see. Look … I have to see,” he told Fox News Sunday. “No, I’m not going to say yes. I’m not going to say no, at last I’m not going to say.” Now, a question that is once considered unthinkable is being asked: What if the US presidential election does not accept defeat?

    Every four years, Americans cast their ballots in the presidential election and in most cases (remember 2000?), they’re used to learning the results of the election later that night. This time, that is not expected to be the case. Because of an influx of absentee ballots in this election amid the coronavirus pandemic, some states have made adjustments to tally the votes more quickly, while others will not have enough of the votes counted to declare a winner by Tuesday night. In Michigan, for example, smaller jurisdictions cannot begin processing mail-in ballots until Election Day. State officials there have said they expect unofficial results to be available three days after the election. States like Wisconsin and Pennsylvania have similar rules, meaning that vote counting could potentially take days. In Texas, election officials in bigger counties, including Bexar, have already started processing mail-in ballots. The early vote results will be released...
    Let’s fast-forward a few weeks. The Nov. 3 presidential election has occurred, and you know the result. You’re not happy. In fact, you’re fed up. You’re so upset that you’re thinking of leaving the United States. You’re not ready to renounce your citizenship. It’s not like you’re forsaking America forever. You’re just unable to tolerate the next four years—and you want to relocate to preserve your fraying sanity. So where do you go? Setting aside the uncertainty of trying to move abroad in a global pandemic, where borders can close quickly and rules change by the day, let’s consider three questions: • What countries welcome Americans? • What criteria should you use to decide where to go? • What hassles might arise? As a general rule, the more America-like the country, the less it wants Americans. “It’s more difficult to move to the U.K. or Canada or New Zealand than...
    Former Vice President Al Gore used a George Floyd reference to condemn President Trump's criticisms of voting by mail. Gore, a Democrat, accused Trump of suffocating democracy by doubting the legitimacy of voting by mail during the coronavirus pandemic. He said that Trump "put his knee on the neck of democracy" in reference to Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck during an arrest. "He seems to have no compunctions at all about trying to rip apart the social fabric and the political equilibrium of the American people, and he’s strategically planting doubts in advance," Gore said in an interview with Reuters. Gore called Trump's remarks about mail-in voting "despicable" and claimed that he was sowing doubt about the election process to try to stay in power. Gore said he is confident that Trump will be forced to...
