Team Trump Struggles in Court
It is one failure after another.
While I want to continually acknowledge the damage being done by Trump’s denial of reality, it is worth also continually noting how ineffective his team has been in court. Via CNN: Trump had a very bad Friday in court with his election cases. They’re headed for more action next week.
The link contains a list of recent defeats, which can be summed up as follows:
“The Trump campaign keeps hoping it will find a judge that treats lawsuits like tweets,” said Justin Levitt, a Loyola Law School professor and elections law expert, on Friday. “Repeatedly, every person with a robe they’ve encountered has said, ‘I’m sorry, we do law here.'”
I will say, stuff like the following really takes some stones:
One of the latest iterations of these cases comes from a group of voters in Wisconsin. The lawsuit argues that election results in areas Biden won should be invalidated across the state because a data analysis might show some ballots, especially absentee, should not have been counted.
But the lawsuit offers no evidence or even sworn witness statements to back up its assertion that Wisconsin had illegal votes.
In fact, the voters who believe their votes were diluted unfairly admit they have not proven their claims at this time.
“This evidence will be shortly forthcoming when the relevant documents are final and available,” the lawsuit promises.
That is quite persuasive.
