to overturn the results of the election:

    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. Despite these apparent pro-Trump views, a county...

    President Donald Trump's desperate attempts to pressure Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to 'find' enough votes to overturn Joe Biden's victory in the Peach State have been revealed in a leaked phone call.    The Washington Post obtained audio of the extraordinary hour-long call on Saturday, in which Trump berated Raffensperger and Gov Brian Kemp to do anything they could to change the outcome of the Georgia election.  An agitated Trump was heard repeatedly insisting: 'There's no way I lost Georgia. There's no way. We won by hundreds of thousands of votes.'  He told the Republican officials: 'So look. All I want to do is this – I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state.   'There's nothing wrong with saying, you know, um, that you've recalculated.' Raffensperger pushed back hard, and often, at one point telling Trump: 'Well, Mr President, the challenge...
    Jedidiah Bila, co-host of “Fox & Friends Weekend” Sunday, criticized Republicans who were planning to object to the Electoral College results. During Bila’s appearance on FNC’s “Media Buzz,” host Howard Kurtz asked, “Let me get you into this unfolding story about the effort by Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, other Republican senators to challenge the electoral college results. Do you think the media misjudged the seriousness and widespread support in the GOP for this effort even though everybody says it’s doomed to fail?” Bila said, “You know, I don’t think it’s widespread support, to be honest I actually find it really outrageous. And the reason is that if you look at what’s gone on here, I think the media has actually been pretty fair, particularly the news divisions.” She continued, “This has gone through the courts. Sixty cases have been brought to the courts, oftentimes widespread voter fraud has not even been alleged in court because there simply isn’t evidence to...
    President Donald Trump is unhappy that the Department of Justice responded on behalf of Vice President Mike Pence in a lawsuit filed by Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert that aims to give Pence the power to overturn the presidential election. The New York Times reported that Trump called Pence Friday morning to express surprise at the development. The president was more vocal to others about his displeasure, sources told the paper's Maggie Haberman.   Gohmert and Arizona's slate of GOP 'alternate' electors have sued Pence to expand his powers, so that he can solely determine which Electoral College votes to count when he presides over the January 6 session of Congress to make President-elect Joe Biden's win official.   In a fresh filing Friday afternoon, Gohmert argued that Pence is more powerful than a 'glorified envelope-opener in chief.'  'Under the Constitution, he has the authority to conduct that proceeding as he sees fit,'...
    Mitch McConnell told fellow Senate Republicans that his vote to certify Joe Biden's election victory will be the 'most consequential' of his political career, a new report claims.  The Majority Leader made the declaration in a conference call on Thursday morning, according to Axios, which spoke to one person who was on the call and two who were briefed on its contents.   'I'm finishing 36 years in the Senate and I've cast a lot of big votes,' one source paraphrased McConnell as saying. 'And in my view, just my view, this will be the most consequential I have ever cast.' He referred to the vote as a 'vote of conscience', the source said, adding: 'The context was McConnell saying we're being asked to overturn the results after a guy didn't get as many electoral votes and lost by 7 million popular votes.'  The call came one day after Missouri Sen...
    Bradley Cortright December 21, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump is not giving up on his effort to overturn the election as he faces the rapidly advancing date for Congress to certify the election results.  On Sunday, his campaign filed a petition with the Supreme Court to reverse three Pennsylvania Supreme Court decisions related to mail-in balloting laws. However, his former acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, doubts the earnestness of the effort. During an appearance on Fox Business on Monday, he was asked by host Maria Bartiromo if the last attempt is a “potential win” for Trump. “Potentially, sure,” Mulvaney said, adding, “But, I think we have to be honest with ourselves, no one’s been impressed with the results of the legal team up till now. It’s been run mostly as a PR campaign, it seems, not a serious legal inquiry.” He continued, “I know the president’s going...
    REUTERS/Leah MillisPresident Donald Trump holding MAGA hats during a campaign rally at Duluth International Airport.Americanism has elements of it that resemble a religion, in the vague sense that it’s something in which Americans, or many Americans, believe on the basis of faith more than facts. The faith weaves together several gauzy beliefs – about America’s essential goodness, about its role in the world, and, often, about its constitutional democratic republican political system. The Trump experience hasn’t been particularly good for these beliefs. But if Trump does leave office in January, it will be consistent with the fundamental belief that our system works, and has proved that it works by withstanding a tough challenge from a lying, cheating megalomaniac who, despite a sturdy effort to do so, was unable to steal a presidential election in which he lost both the popular and electoral vote. Actual religions rely on what is often...
    Most of the Republican party is publicly either siding with or staying silent on President Donald Trump’s fight to challenge the election results in several states, which has involved the president attacking Republican leaders in states like Georgia and baselessly insisting he won the election except for all the fraud. One of the states Trump is targeting in particular is Pennsylvania, and the most recent news about his efforts is that he called Pennsylvania’s Republican speaker and press him “on how Republicans planned to reverse the results of an election that Mr. Biden was certified to have won by more than 80,000 votes.” Senator Pat Toomey (R- PA) said late last month, after a judge rejected the Trump legal team’s case there, “President Trump has exhausted all plausible legal options to challenge the result of the presidential race in Pennsylvania… To ensure that he is remembered for these outstanding...
    Recently Trump-pardoned Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs that the nation’s elections “should not be decided in the courts” — even as the president who just granted him clemency has been trying to do exactly that for the past several weeks. During a Thursday evening appearance, Flynn discussed his recent pardon, but then turned to his burgeoning role in helping his legal benefactor overturn the 2020 election. Flynn’s personal lawyer, Sidney Powell, has also become one of Donald Trump’s most outspoken legal advocates, though she has lost every lawsuit she has brought on behalf of the president so far — thanks to incompetent filing as well as lack of any real evidence of widespread fraud. Saying the country was suffering from a “crisis,” Flynn then elaborated: “Last point I’ll add, Lou, is that our elections, our election process should not be decided in the courts. But It should not be decided...
    The top Michigan Republican legislative leaders who met with President Trump at the White House as part of the president's extraordinary move to try to overturn Joe Biden's popular vote win in the state said Friday evening they will 'follow the law.' The lawmakers, Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield, issued a joint statement after flying to Washington to meet with the president – on a day Trump claimed he 'won' the election, despite trailing President-elect Joe Biden by 6 million votes.  But the lawmakers said they have not seen anything that would 'change the outcome' of the race – despite Trump's lawyers repeatedly claiming a 'massive' fraud had occurred. Their statement, however, also included language saying fraud should be 'taken seriously' and be prosecuted if uncovered.  Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey was met with protesters chanting 'certify the results' and carrying signs as he arrived...
    House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Wednesday on CNN’s “Situation Room” that President Donald Trump was attempting “to overturn the results of a perfectly fair and well-executed election.” Blitzer said, “The president claims he won the election and tweeting all about that and congratulated Republicans in one Michigan county for initially refuse to go certify the election, but a couple of hours today they did, in fact, certify. He is pursuing a very flimsy argument in various courts, and most of them already have been rejected. This may be simply a bumbling attempt. Is the sitting president of the United States trying to overturn the legitimate results of this election?” Schiff said, “I think without question that is exactly what he is trying to do. He is failing, but, nonetheless, it’s staggering that a sitting president of the United States would try to overturn the results of a...
    Trump attorney Sidney Powell said a member of President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team, Peter Neffenger, is also a member of the board of directors for a company that committed election fraud that could cause the results of the 2020 election to be overturned. “He is president and on the board of directors of Smartmatic, and it just so happens he's on Mr. Biden’s presidential transition team that’s going to be nonexistent, because we’re fixing to overturn the results of the election in multiple states,” said Powell during an appearance on Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo. “President Trump won not just hundreds of thousands of votes but by millions of votes that were shifted by this software that was designed expressly for that purpose. Powell said Neffenger had knowledge that the software provided by Smartmatic was designed to rig elections. “We have sworn witness testimony of why the software...
