Election Day:

    Donald Trump did not seem to have a relaxing start to his Thanksgiving Day, as one now-viral video shows. The president took a trip to the golf course in the morning on Thanksgiving before gathering with family, and video showed that he had a bit of difficulty on at least one of the holes. As The Daily Mail reported, a clip showed Trump teeing off at a hole at his company’s course in Virginia, a frequent destination when he hits the links. In the clip, he was seen going through a series of short practice swings before lining up behind his ball and sending it directly into a water hazard. Trump was seen swearing as he realized the poor hit,...
    Olivier Douliery/Getty Images President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday to insist that President-elect Joe Biden received record low numbers for his Thanksgiving Day Address — meaning he could not have possibly received the votes needed to win the election. Trump cited an OAN report in his tweet, which claimed that Biden only received a thousand views, adding, “Numbers don’t lie, or add up!” REPORT: Biden’s Thanksgiving Day Address gets just 1000 views online, a record low. Observers say a candidate with “80,000,000” votes would get many more online viewers. Numbers don’t lie, or add up! @OANN — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 27, 2020 CNN’s Brian Stelter posted the OAN clip to Twitter, noting that the source for the claim that Biden only...
    Black Friday Sales Event Begins With 48 Hours Of Savings
    The worst shot I've ever played in golf came on an excruciatingly public stage. It happened two years ago at the world-famous Carnoustie course in Scotland as I was competing in the prestigious televised Alfred Dunhill Links Championship where, uniquely, amateurs get to play with professionals in a tour event. 'And now, on the first tee, journalist and broadcaster Piers Morgan,' declared the announcer, prompting a splattering of applause from the 500-strong crowd. It was 9am, it was cold, wet and windy, and I was suffering from both the ravages of four consecutive days of hard golf and a rather fierce hangover. I took out my driver, strode forward with all the confidence of an ageing three-legged gazelle into a...
    People celebrate in the streets after it was announced that Democratic nominee Joe Biden would be the next U.S. President, in Times Square on November 7, 2020 in New York City. According to several news outlets presidential nominee Joe Biden has defeated incumbent U.S. President Donald Trump to become the 46th President of the United States. (Photo by David Dee Delgado/Getty Images) Let’s face it: as we celebrate this season of Thanksgiving 2020, America has just come through a very serious political and electoral crisis. And we are still in the middle of a horrible pandemic health crisis. For us, as Black people, this year has been exceptionally hard with the culmination of health disparities and COVID-19 taking...
    (CNN)America is ideologically split, and if the animosity over the 2020 election results is any indication, we may be fast losing the ability to bridge the divide. But is there be a way to reconnect?Could we learn how to discuss our beliefs with opposing friends, family and acquaintances -- perhaps over Zoom or socially distanced get-togethers this holiday season -- and have a dialogue in which we disagree, yet emerge on the other side feeling understood? That's the premise behind The Better Arguments Project, a civic initiative by the Aspen Institute, Facing History and Ourselves, and Allstate, that wants to teach us how to have more productive arguments. These conversations don't have to drive us apart, the group says. In...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — Minnesota is No. 1 in the country for voter turnout for the third time in a row, with nearly 80% of eligible voters participating. On Tuesday, Secretary of State Steve Simon said 79.96% of eligible voters in Minnesota voted in the 2020 election. He called it a “modern-day record.” The state was also No. 1 in voter turnout in the 2016 and 2018 elections. We did it, MInnesota! For the third time in a row, we are #1 in America in voter turnout. #1 in 2016#1 in 2018 And now, #1 in 2020.(79.96% of eligible voters voted – a modern-day record) Amazing! pic.twitter.com/EZjw5JBZ41 — Steve Simon (@MNSteveSimon) November 24, 2020 Minnesota certifies Biden win,...
    The conversation has turned from election recounts to poop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. To be precise, they’re actually talking about smiling poop emojis found on wristbands given to election observers in the Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee, who are there to watch over ballot recounts. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that the observers are given bands every day to show they’ve passed a health screening. On previous days, the wristbands had featured things like “VIP” in purple or gold lettering. But on Tuesday, you might say that was all flushed away. For just a bit, the discussion turned away from who might finish first to why number two was featured on that day’s wristbands. “A recount volunteer says she and others were forced...
    President-elect Joe Biden said he's about to get access to the presidential daily briefing and that his staff is speaking to Dr. Anthony Fauci about the coronavirus pandemic after President Donald Trump finally conceded the transition has begun.  'They've been very forthcoming - offering all access,' Biden said of the federal officials in the wake of General Services Administration Chief Emily Murphy sending a letter that the transition process could formally begin. The process has gone from lying in wait to moving at warp speed as officials make up for lost time. It's been 16 days since the election was called and there's only 57 days until the inauguration.  Biden's transition team has been in contact with all sectors of the federal...
    ABC News chief legal analyst and Mediaite founder Dan Abrams referenced a famous lyric from Don McLean’s classic rock song “American Pie” while pronouncing President Donald Trump’s desperate attempts to overturn the 2020 election as finally dead. Abrams’ verdict came after several key events transpired in the previous 24 hours, when Pennsylvania and Michigan certified that Joe Biden won those states and GSA Administrator Emily Murphy official approved the start of the Biden presidential transition. Two weeks ago, Abrams had sent up a warning flare on his radio show after some GOP state legislators in swing states had increasingly signaled a willingness to do an end run around the vote count and appoint pro-Trump electors. Because of this development, he thought there was a...
    (CNN)Two weeks after Joe Biden was projected to win the presidential election, General Services Administrator Emily Murphy was finally prepared to stop stalling the transition. It was Friday, November 20. President Donald Trump's lawsuits challenging the election result were going nowhere, Georgia was certifying its hand recount for Biden, and both Michigan and Pennsylvania were preparing to certify their elections early the next week. So GSA officials gave the White House a heads up that if Michigan and Pennsylvania certified their elections as expected, Murphy would formally start the transition for Biden in a process known as ascertainment, according to multiple sources familiar with the conversations.

    When Donald Trump warned in 2016 that if he was elected, Americans would get sick of all the winning, he was apparently just mispronouncing the word whining.  At the end of his ignominious tenure, Trump is going out exactly as he came in on Day One: whining. Then it was about his pique over the unfavorable comparisons between Barack Obama's historic inaugural attendance and Trump's paltry inaugural crowd. Now it's all about undermining faith in the results of the presidential contest he definitively lost to President-elect Joe Biden.  Since Election Day, Trump has ducked nearly all public appearances, preferring instead to stew on the links. Trump even skipped in-person attendance last weekend at a meeting of the world's 20 largest economies, opting...
    President Donald Trump attacked Fox News and demanded the election be rerun in an early morning tweet storm that featured voter fraud allegations from actor Randy Quaid in a starring role.  Trump, in the nearly dozen tweets and retweets fired off Tuesday morning, appeared to  be backpedaling from Monday evening's decision by the General Services Administration to allow the transition process to begin, giving  President-elect Joe Biden and his team access to the federal government to begin the transfer of power. Trump tweeted his blessing of the move, which many interpreted as a concession to Biden's win - or as close as a concession as the president would get.   But the president was singing a different tune on Tuesday, vowing...

I’ve heard from Rudy Giuliani, Ronna McDaniel, and Newt Gingrich. And I’ve heard from Donald Trump. Over and over again. The 2020 election was stolen from Trump.

Real ballots were trashed. American democracy was undone. The people have been robbed of their rightful president.  Yes, this is what I am told every day—multiple...
    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan tore into President Trump on Sunday, telling the current White House resident to get off the golf course and concede the election to President-elect Joe Biden. Responding to a tweet from Trump that blamed Hogan for purchasing faulty COVID-19 tests from South Korea, the Maryland Republican also did not mince words when he accused Trump of incompetence in handling the pandemic. “If you had done your job, America's governors wouldn't have been forced to fend for themselves to find tests in the middle of a pandemic, as we successfully did in Maryland,” Hogan said. “Stop golfing and concede.” Trump on Sunday spent much of his day on the golf course, as he has done most weekends since...
    Alaska Democrat Liz Snyder holds a lead over the Republican who was in line to become speaker. The Alaska House of Representatives is currently run by an alliance of Democrats, independents, and breakaway Republicans called the Majority Caucus, but no one knows who will control the 40-member body more than two weeks after Election Day. Republican hardliners won 18 seats, while another three Republican members of Majority Caucus also prevailed. Democrats, meanwhile, won 15 districts, as did three Democratic-aligned independents. Independent Josiah Patkotak, who has not committed to joining any coalition, won the final constituency. Alaska election authorities said Wednesday that they were done counting ballots and had produced final unofficial numbers but explained they would spend a week double-checking before certifying the results. The...
    Immigrants becoming citizens in Miami, Florida  As the election postmortem fight begins, Democratic leaders are consoling themselves with the narrative that Florida was already lost. It’s really a red state, Democrats are being told, which is an excuse that has been echoed by multiple pundits. The problem with that is that it’s just not true. The people here are not overwhelmingly conservative. Not by a longshot.  Not only do we have more Democrats than Republicans, but we are a population that consistently votes for the most progressive of ideals every election. For decades, Democrats bypassed the conservative legislature to get progressive initiatives passed, such as restoring rights to the formerly incarcerated, reducing class size in schools, allowing medical marijuana, forcing allocation of...

    Twitter will automatically transfer the official @POTUS presidential handle to President-elect Joe Biden on Inauguration Day, even if President Donald Trump refuses to concede the election. Other official accounts like @whitehouse, @VP and @FLOTUS will also transfer to the new administration.

    Twitter says it will be handing over its "@POTUS" account to President-elect Biden on Inauguration Day, even if President Trump refuses to concede the 2020 presidential election.  “Twitter is actively preparing to support the transition of White House institutional Twitter accounts on January 20th, 2021,” Twitter spokesperson Nick Pacilio told Politico on Friday. “As we did for the presidential transition in 2017, this process is being done in close consultation with the National Archives and Records Administration."  Among other Twitter handles that would be transferred to a Biden administration include @WhiteHouse, @VP, and @FLOTUS. Individuals like Vice President Mike Pence and First Lady Melania Trump would then resume tweeting from their existing personal accounts. EDWARD NORTON CALLS TRUMP A 'WHINY'...
    President Trump attacked pharmaceutical companies for spending money against him as he campaigned for reelection and for announcing a coronavirus vaccine days after the Election Day. "You wouldn't have a vaccine if it wasn't for me," Trump said at a White House event on Friday, his first public appearance in more than a week. The president said that without him, a vaccine would likely have taken another four years. Trump also said he "forced" the Food and Drug Administration to move quickly. He charged that drug manufacturer Pfizer and others chose not to evaluate their vaccine until after the election because of his efforts to lower drug prices. "Big Pharma ran millions of dollars of negative advertisements...
    Firefighters in Union County jumped to action to help deliver a baby girl after a local woman went into labor at her home on Election Day morning. Linden firefighters rushed to a 4th Avenue home and found the woman lying in bed with the baby crowning, Fire Chief William Hasko Jr. said on Facebook. Additional first responders arrived “within seconds” after determining that the birth was “imminent,” Hasko said. Firefighters used an OB Kit to help the woman give birth to baby Deborah, who was born at 7:12 a.m. weighing 6 pounds and 10 ounces and measuring 20 inches long. “The professional, rapid and deliberate actions of the firefighters on scene resulted in a successful delivery, followed by a safe...

    Savannah Rychcik November 19, 2020 0 Comments Former presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg (D) is expressing his frustration with President-elect Joe Biden’s inability to access intelligence briefings. MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle asked Buttigieg how big of a concern it is for Biden to have not received intelligence briefings this long after the election. “It’s a huge concern because you need to be able to prepare for the threat streams that the country faces. The intelligence community and the military, with no regard for politics, is out there doing the work of making sure day-by-day that the president is briefed on everything that we’re going to face,” Buttigieg said.

    Donald Trump is continuing to rage against the outcome of the presidential election, claiming his competitor Joe Biden received a suspicious 'dump of votes' in Wisconsin after polling booths had closed.  The Commander-in-chief is contesting the outcome in crucial swing state, which went to Biden by a slender 0.62 percent margin (20, 565 votes).  'Look at this in Wisconsin! A day AFTER the election, Biden receives a dump of 143,379 votes at 3:42AM, when they learned he was losing badly. This is unbelievable!' Trump raged in a tweet posted Wednesday evening.  The President then attached a graph which showed the huge bounce in Biden votes coming in early on the morning of Wednesday, November 4.  While Trump did not cite...
    Dr. Kelli Ward, chair of the Republican Party of Arizona, said in a Wednesday update that the day is “expected to be a lawsuit day” for the Arizona Republican Party, and she reaffirmed her confidence that the election will “ultimately be decided in favor of President Donald J. Trump.” Ward described the day as a “lawsuit day” in her morning update. The Arizona GOP is expected in court Wednesday afternoon over their lawsuit demanding a hand-count audit of votes by precinct rather than by voting centers in Maricopa County. “The Arizona Republican Party has a lawsuit about election integrity,” Ward said, identifying the Arizona Democratic Party and Democrat Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D) as the opposition. “And by the way, the...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly, a Butler Republican, says all states should count mail-in ballots before Election Day. He’s introduced a bill in Congress to require that, along with some other provisions that he says will protect election integrity. Not everyone agrees. “There’s a reason that three key states did not have their elections called on Election Night – Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin,” ACLU legal director Vic Walczak told KDKA political editor Jon Delano on Wednesday. “And the reason is that the legislatures in all three states, which are all controlled by Republicans, refused to change the law to allow the counties to start counting ballots earlier.” To correct that, Kelly has a bill to require all...
    President Trump's longtime personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani rejected reports that he sought a lucrative deal from the Trump campaign to pay him $20,000 a day for his legal work in the president's election lawsuits. "I never asked for $20,000," Giuliani told the New York Times. "The arrangement is, we’ll work it out at the end." The former New York City mayor added that whoever made the claim that he requested $20,000 per day for services "is a liar, a complete liar." Giuliani has helped spearhead efforts to challenge election results in multiple states that declared Joe Biden the victor of the Nov. 3 election. The campaign has had little success in overturning any results in his favor. The Trump campaign...
    U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe remains “full steam ahead,” a source familiar with his progress told Fox News, despite concerns from Republicans and allies of President Trump that the probe has been dormant following Election Day. “Durham remains full steam ahead,” the source familiar with the investigation told Fox News. RATCLIFFE SAYS THERE 'SHOULD BE' MORE INDICTMENTS IN DURHAM PROBE Another source told Fox News that his investigation “is definitely still happening,” despite radio silence coming from the U.S. attorney from Connecticut.

    BOSTON (CBS) – Endless lines of cars waiting for hours at food banks. Fifty-eight percent of small business owners on the verge of permanent closure. A looming avalanche of evictions. And still, no sign of a desperately-needed new federal stimulus package. “What I’m going to do here in the Senate is concentrate on the business that we have left to do,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell the other day. “Maybe another coronavirus package.” “Maybe?” That’s right. Despite the long, growing list of pandemic economic casualties, Washington appears no closer to a deal on a new round of aid than they were before election day. Democrats are insisting on help for states and cities that are bleeding red ink. “We cannot...

    SAUSALITO (KPIX 5) – Two weeks after Election Day, the race for a seat on the Sausalito City Council is still undecided. As of Monday night, the vote margin is razor thin. It looks like the winner may come down to votes from those who waited until Election Day to register, along with mail-in ballots postmarked on or before Election Day that continue to arrive. Ian Sobieski’s first run at political office has been quite the roller coaster ride. “On Election Night, I was down something like 60 votes,” he said. “By the end of the week I was down 29 votes.  By last Wednesday, I was up 10 votes and as of Friday, I’m up three votes.” In Sausalito,...
    KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Crowds of retirees marched Monday in the Belarusian capital of Minsk, marking 100 days since mass protests began and became an almost-daily feature of life in the country after authoritarian President Alexander Lukashenko won his sixth term in a widely disputed election. More than 2,000 pensioners were estimated to have taken part in the rally, demanding the resignation of Lukashenko and a halt to the government’s violent crackdown on dissent. They carried flowers and red and white flags that have become a symbol of protest. “Lukashenko, you and my children will remember this disgrace,” said one of the banners the retirees carried. Such protests have roiled Belarus ever since the Aug. 9 election handed Lukashenko a...
    Despite painstaking efforts to keep election sites safe, some poll workers who came in contact with voters on Election Day have tested positive for the coronavirus, including more than two dozen in Missouri and cases in New York, Iowa, Indiana and Virginia. The infections cannot be tied definitively to polling places. Because COVID-19 is spreading rapidly in the U.S., there is no way to determine yet whether in-person voting on Election Day contributed to the surge, public health experts said. Still, the infections among poll workers raise concerns because of how many people passed through voting sites, which implemented social-distancing rules, erected protective barriers and stocked sanitizer, masks, gloves and other safety gear. In most places, poll workers were required...
    It’s only natural that President Trump was going to contest the election results. The question is just how far Mr. Trump takes things. And, even more importantly, for how long will House and Senate Republicans continue to tacitly support the President’s challenges. Few other writers give us better insight into politics than William Shakespeare. It’s easy to pluck lines and observations from the Bard’s more famous political plays: Julius Caesar. Hamlet. Macbeth. Richard III.  Casual Shakespeare observers ignore his play “Coriolanus.” But the work named after a Roman leader lends particular insight into where we find American politics between the 2020 election and inauguration day. Consider the President disputing the election results. Should we have anticipated anything else? “Why did...

    Drew Angerer/Getty Images President Donald Trump, amidst yet another baseless claim about an election so rigged it was supposedly stolen from him, tried to clean up an earlier tweet of his Sunday morning saying, of Joe Biden, “He won.” “He won because the Election was Rigged. NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!” Trump tweeted. The “he won” part dominated social media this morning, given how Trump had yet to formally concede that he lost the election: "He won" — President Trump acknowledged Joe Bidens...
    A Pennsylvania federal appeals court rejected the Trump 2020 Campaign's attempts to block more than 9,000 absentee ballots that arrived after Election Day. In October, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the commonwealth could extend its deadline to receive mail-in ballots by up to three days after Election Day, as long as they were postmarked on or before Nov. 3. Three judges rejected a string of Trump campaign lawsuits, which tried to block a total of 9,300 mail-in ballots Friday. The judges noted the "vast disruption" and "unprecedented challenges" facing the nation during the COVID-19 pandemic as they upheld the extension.

    WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump delighted supporters gathered near the White House on Saturday with a slow motorcade drive-by through downtown Washington on the way to his Virginia golf club.A week after the presidential race was called for Democrat Joe Biden, thousands of Trump loyalists converged on the nation's capital to protest the election results and falsely assert the vote was stolen.Trump persists with his claims and complaints even though a broad coalition of top government and industry officials has declared that the Nov. 3 voting and the following count unfolded smoothly with no more than the usual minor hiccups - "the most secure in American history," they said, repudiating his efforts to undermine the integrity of the contest.The crowd...

    Leading Off ● 2020 Election Litigation: Donald Trump's presidential campaign has lost all but one of the 21 lawsuits and counting it has filed since Election Day in a last-ditch attempt to overturn Trump's Electoral College loss, with judges repeatedly rejecting them as frivolous in unsparing terms. Given the exceedingly low likelihood that these cases will affect the outcome, Daily Kos Elections will hold off on covering any individual suit in this edition of the Voting Rights Roundup, but that doesn't mean these cases don't matter. While Trump has lost almost every case trying to stop Democratic votes from being counted, the deeper aim of his post-election litigation isn't to secure Trump a second term but rather to delegitimize Joe...
    Twitter labeled 300,000 tweets related to the US presidential election 'potentially misleading' in the week before and after Election Day, the company has announced. That represented 0.2 percent of all US election-related tweets during the two-week period between October 27 and November 11 - and some of those flagged were posted or retweet by President Donald Trump. A separate report found nearly half of Trump's tweets had been flagged by between November 3 and November 5, The Independent reports. On election day, one-sixth of his 55 tweets were deemed to contain 'misinformation' and seven out of 18 have since been labeled.  In all, 456 tweets were obscured by a warning message and were not able to be liked, retweeted or replied...
    (CNN)As President Donald Trump refuses to acknowledge the reality that he lost last week's presidential election, his Republican allies have mostly, so far, backed his refusal to concede, a stark contrast with their Democratic counterparts in 2016, who quickly acknowledged Hillary Clinton's loss.Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader in the Senate, said on Monday that Trump was "100% within his rights" to consider legal challenges to the election results, and he lambasted Democrats as hypocrites."Let's not have any lectures about how the President should immediately, cheerfully accept preliminary election results from the same characters who just spent four years refusing to accept the validity of the last election," McConnell said.

    Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz, host of The Dershow, told Breitbart News on Thursday that President Donald Trump is likely to win a lawsuit his campaign filed in Pennsylvania challenging the legitimacy of mail-in ballots received after Election Day. Dershowitz predicted that the U.S. Supreme Court would take up the Trump campaign’s lawsuit if the number of votes being challenged are enough to change the outcome of the presidential election in Pennsylvania. “I do think that Trump will win the Pennsylvania lawsuit,” said Dershowitz on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Joel Pollak, “namely, the lawsuit that challenges ballots that were filed before the end of Election Day but not received until after Election Day.” Dershowitz continued, “The [Pennsylvania] legislature...
    The U.S. election is over. Democrat Joe Biden is president-elect, and incumbent Donald Trump has not acknowledged that. And there's a lot still going on — in the courts, in the recount arena, and in the limbo of transition from one American chief executive to another. Julie Pace, Washington bureau chief for The Associated Press, oversaw AP's election coverage. Here, she breaks down some of what's still percolating in the aftermath of the presidential election and what it might mean. ___ IT'S MORE THAN 10 DAYS AFTER ELECTION DAY, AND LOTS IS STILL GOING ON. WHAT SHOULD PEOPLE BE WATCHING TODAY? There are a few things. One, we are watching the response of the Republican party right now. We...
    Before the polls opened on Election Day, Pennsylvania officials – from Gov. Tom Wolf to rank and file legislators – warned that without any ability to pre-canvass mail-in ballots, the results would be unknown for days. Nine days later, poll workers continue tallying votes, leaving many to wonder how effective early processing may have been in speeding up the count. For Republican lawmakers, however, it seems pre-canvassing may be the least of the state’s issues. “It could have helped a little bit if the appropriate guardrails were in place,” said Rep. Dawn Keefer, R-York. “That’s why we passed House Bill 2626.” In Keefer’s district, which spans portions of York and Cumberland counties, workers pre-canvassed 77,000 mail-in ballots...
    The morning after a brutal hearing in which a lawyer for outgoing President Donald Trump’s campaign distanced himself from voter fraud allegations, the legal team hastily declared its case moot. “Since the close of yesterday’s hearing, the tabulation of votes statewide has rendered unnecessary a judicial ruling as to the presidential electors,” Trump campaign’s lawyer Kory Langhofer wrote in a brief notice to Judge Daniel Kiley, from Arizona’s Maricopa County, on Friday. The move followed a day of embarrassing stumbles in a case that began as a way to test Republicans’ baseless “Sharpiegate” conspiracy theory in court. During the morning session of the 9:30 a.m. hearing on Thursday, Langhofer unsuccessfully tried to admit hundreds of affidavits delivered to them...

    (CNN)Lawyers for the Trump campaign have dropped a lawsuit seeking a review of all ballots cast on Election Day after finding that the margin of victory for the presidential contest in Arizona could not be overcome. The Trump campaign filed the lawsuit on Saturday alleging some voters were confused on Election Day and feared that their ballots were not counted if the vote tabulation machines classified their ballots as overvotes. They were seeking a hand review of any ballots flagged by the machine as overvotes alleging it could result in thousands of votes for President Donald Trump.

    A recent report from the New York Times analyzes Twitter’s moderation of the platform during the 2020 Presidential election, noting that 34 percent of tweets from President Donald Trump were marked as “disputed” by the platform since election day in an effort to lessen their viral spread across the platform. In a recent article, the New York Times analyzes some of Twitter’s recent claims about the moderation of its platform during the 2020 Presidential election. Twitter alleges that it labeled around 300,000 election-related tweets as “disputed” as part of its moderating practices. This accounts for around 0.2 percent of all discussion on the subject. Disclosing these figures makes Twitter the first major social media platform to publicly evaluate its performance around the 2020...
    A major law firm, Porter Wright Morris & Arthur, has withdrawn its representation of President Trump’s reelection campaign just days after the Lincoln Project worked to amplify scrutiny of lawyers representing Trump. The firm said in a federal court motion that it and the Trump campaign had reached a mutual agreement that the campaign “would be best served if Porter Wright withdraws.” It acknowledged in the filing that the Trump team is in the process of bringing on new representation to replace Porter Wright. The firm confirmed to the Washington Examiner on Friday morning that it had withdrawn from the federal lawsuit. “We’ve committed to the court to fulfill our obligations as required to ensure transition to...

    The outgoing president and his Republican allies refuse to recognize the election of Democrat Joe Biden to the White House. Denouncing massive “frauds”, they have filed a dozen complaints in several key states. Their legal guerrillas, which have so far lacked evidence, have turned against their lawyers, accused by political activists or ordinary colleagues, of participating in an enterprise to undermine democracy. The Lincoln Project, a coalition of Republicans opposed to Donald Trump, has launched a Twitter campaign focused specifically against the Jones Day and Porter Wright firms, implicated in some of the lawsuits. “Do you think law firms should try to overturn the will of the American people?” The conservative group tweeted, calling on...
