More claims of wrongdoing, still no evidence: Trump asks judge to throw out questioned ballots or the entire election in Pennsylvania – By Kevin McCoy (USA Today) / Nov 20 2020
President Donald Trump’s claims of wrongdoing in Pennsylvania’s election have grown more insistent as he nears the two-week anniversary of being declared the loser in the presidential race.
In the third version of his campaign’s federal lawsuit seeking to overturn the results there, the complaint accuses election officials in Democratic strongholds of scheming to steal the election with thousands of invalid mail and absentee ballots that Republican observers were blocked from checking.
And for the third time, the filing provides no specific evidence. No exhibits. No affidavits. Trump’s personal attorney, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, insists evidence exists, but can’t yet be disclosed because people fear harassment.
Campaign lawyers want a federal judge to block Pennsylvania from certifying the results to give them time to search for evidence. Trump’s campaign wants to examine as many as 1.5 million mail and absentee ballots in seven counties, even though no one has produced evidence of widespread fraud or irregularities in the state.
