Plans To Challenge Election Results Already Underway

Plans To Challenge Election Results Already Underway

The Washington Post reports:

The RNC and Trump campaign advisers are now mapping out their post-election strategy, including how to challenge mail ballots without postmarks, as they anticipate weeks-long legal fights in an array of states, according to people familiar with the plans, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe internal discussions.

The campaign plans to have lawyers ready to mobilize in every state and expects legal battles could play out after Election Day in such states as Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Michigan and Nevada, they said.

Trump’s claims about voting by mail have been echoed by Attorney General William P. Barr, who has repeatedly said without evidence that mail-in voting could lead to a “high risk” of fraud and interference by foreign countries.

    From my understanding, it’s far easier for “foreign countries” to interfere with electronic balloting than it is by mail. But hey … what do I know??!?

      Hello Nan. Very true, and I would say you know quite a lot. Electronically they could change both the votes and totals of hundreds of thousands if not whole states. Try as they might it would take an army of people along with assistance from the post office and the state elections people to change a couple hands full. Hugs

        So what do you think? Is he putting all this attention on mail voting so people will take him at his word, put virus fears aside, and vote in-person … electronically? Of course trying to figure out the mind of a mentally ill person …

          Hello Nan. I think he is doing the two things that he openly says he is trying to do. He is trying very hard to depress the votes for the Democratic party and lay the groundwork for disputing he has lost the election. Historically more Democrats request mail in ballots which is why Republican leaders dislike them so. Also it takes more time to count the mail in ballots compared to the electronic totals of the in person voting. So what tRump is trying to get into the minds of the people is that he will have a lead on election night, but then as the mail in ballots get counted Biden will surge to the win. tRump will then claim all those mail in ballots were fraud ( remember the 3 million illegals that voted for Hillary giving her the popular vote, along with the bus loads of illegals bussed to Maine to vote Democrat. They would go from precinct to precinct just to vote Democratic. Sometimes just go outside and change their hat and come in and vote again. Not the way voting works but all things he has claimed, so it shows he has not voted much in his life. ) and so shouldn’t be counted. If he has any kind of lead on election night he is going to declare himself the winner. He already has claimed that only votes counted on election day should count and all voting has to stop at the end of the day even though the law says all the ballots mailed or delivered on time shall be counted. So what he and his cult are trying to do is very much rig the election and get it in everyone’s minds that the election is rigged if he in anyway is losing. His campaign also intends to slow the counting of mail in ballots down as much as possible by challenging every ballot to enhance their idea that ballots are being mailed in late for Biden. Hugs
