US President Trump: Will a wave of lawsuits lead him to re-election? in eight out of 16 cases there were defeats
Out of a total of 16 Complaints writes the New York Times: Half of it has already been rejected, so they flashed Conservatives about in Michigan with a lawsuit and with an appeal in Pennsylvania from. The air for them republican is now apparently getting thinner in court, so in two cases Trumps Lawyers withdrew their lawsuits due to a lack of prospect of success. This was about in Arizona the case. Five cases are still being negotiated, one in Michigan, two in Pennsylvania, one in Nevada and one Wisconsin. Do you believe that? New York Times, hat Trump but no good cards here either.
Among other things, the familiar Law office Porter Wright Morris & Arthur announced that they are no longer with Trump Will cooperate in matters of election fraud campaign – but no official reason was given. Shortly afterwards, the largest law firm also declared the USA, Jones Day, working with Trump for ended. While Trump with every defeat in court, potentially also within the republican party Could lose support, stands with Rudy Giuliani a prominent ally but still at his side.
US election on video: Trump holds on to allegations of election fraud
But also Giuliani, closest adviser and personal lawyer to the incumbent, but voted out president, reportedly suffered severe defeat: In Pennsylvania, a legal team was loud Washington Post one Main complaint back. It is about the claim that it is on Election day November 3rd no Republican election observers were admitted. This allegation turned out to be unfounded, so that Trump’s lawyers backed down in court.
Trump himself had repeatedly relied on this accusation and especially on it Twitter propagated – so the news should have hit him pretty much. But who now thinks Trump go in Pennsylvania no further legal action on the barricades is obviously wrong. Trump’s campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh announced at least on Monday Twitterthat you’re still against 682,479 postal votes who will complain in the “Swing State” Pennsylvania allegedly – so the charge of republican – were counted “in secret”. Claimed on Friday Murtaugh polemical that the “left mob” had taken action against the lawyers who withdrew the lawsuits until they collapsed under the pressure.
Who will be US President? Trump’s team is making new allegations in Pennsylvania
According to a report from the agency AP supports the “Restructured” lawsuit from Trump’s team However, not on this accusation, but on the thesis in some – predominantly democratic – counties, voters were given the opportunity because of a formal error invalid ballot papers to improve. That did not happen in counties with a predominantly republican tradition. Here one sees unequal treatment.
This story is completely erroneous. Our lawsuit in Pennsylvania absolutely still makes an issue of the 682,479 mail-in and absentee ballots that were counted in secret.
To write that we had scrapped that argument requires not reading the amended complaint. https://t.co/39CvzAoIyl

Joe Bidens Team is surprisingly calm despite Trump’s efforts and publicly classifies the lawsuits as pure „Theater“ one. Trump however, still speaks of the fact that the election will ultimately be from Supreme Court in Washington could be decided. Six of the nine judges are now considered conservative * Trump three of them self-appointed. Legal experts think so – mainly because of it Bidens comparatively large lead in many states – impossible that the US Supreme Court the Election result due to the individual lawsuits.
Excuse me, Mr. President @realDonaldTrump

Sir, It’s Time for you to CONCEDE
Sir, It’s Time for you to have some DIGNITY
Sir, It’s Time for you to GO

That Trump still refuses to acknowledge his defeat, makes for Biden But the handover – for the “transition” is actually provided for by law to support the incumbent – extremely difficult. Because the Republicans Biden’s election victory continue to publicly pose as unsafe, wins Trump Time to plan any next legal steps.
Until December 8th states certify their Election results and report them to Washington. At the December 14th then agree 538 electors and elect the new president and his deputy. At the 6th January the result will be announced in Congress and on January 20th the new president is solemnly sworn in. (cos) * Merkur.de is part of the Ippen-Digital network.
