Trump Files Lawsuit to Stop Vote Certification in Michigan
The drama continues from election day here in Michigan. President Trump’s campaign filed another Michigan lawsuit challenging our election results. The suit was filed Tuesday to stop Michigan from certifying the results that show Biden leading by close to 146,000 votes. Michigan’s state government officials say there were no issues with processing the substantial number of mail in votes, and on election day everything went well at all the polling places around the state. The counting has gone on in Michigan, and every other state in our Nation as it always does after an election. States are the ones responsible for conducting the elections, not the federal government. It is a procedure that goes like clockwork after every election.
The campaign asked a judge to stop Michigan from certifying fraudulent ballots, those received after Election Day, those processed when observers were not present, and any counted with defective tabulating machines or software. At least two prior lawsuits contesting the state's election results have already been rejected by Michigan judges.
The President says he does not accept results showing Biden won. Trumps campaign and Republican supporters have filed suits in at least four states. According to legal experts, these lawsuits will fail to change the vote count enough to provide Trump a win in the electoral college. And, the Trump campaign has not provided any evidence of widespread voter fraud.
This past Monday Trump sued Pennsylvania from certifying its election results, saying that voting issues justify keeping an undeclared winner while the case continues. Biden leads in Pennsylvania by 46,000 votes, according to the Associated Press.
