Finally! We have gotten evidence of hypocrisy in the Trump Administration.

You're right. I was being way to harsh and judgmental.

Lol. Trumper’s are still at it. The Gateway Pundit is actually saying Trump will end up being awarded WI, MI, PA, AZ, GA, and NV after the courts are done. Do these people actually believe this or are they just holding out hope?

If someone could figure out how to throw an entire recount for a President for a state, it would have happened by now.

How about a wrestling match between Fetterman and Jared Kushner for Pennsylvania's electoral votes?

Georgiaís date for certifying the election is November 20 in 9 days. Do you think they can recount all the ballots (5 million) by hand by then? If they donít have a result, would the GOP dominated legislature and Kemp step in and select their own electors? I bet they will try.

I don't know how the court system works. I do know a story about gaming the system. This is how I remember it from The Years of Lyndon Johnson: Means of Ascent by Robert Caro.

When Lyndon Johnson ran for the Senate in 1948, he had to out-cheat the other side. That was normal politics in 1940s Texas. Whoever cheated the best was the winner. Johnson won the election by 29 doubtful votes in one precinct. His team knew two things: that the other side was going to court to get those doubtful votes checked, and that they had a friendly judge the next level up in the Circuit Court of Appeals. So they figured out that the best strategy would be to lose the court case. They maneuvered to get an unfriendly lower court judge for the initial case, and the other side was tricked. The unfriendly judge ruled against them, they instantly appealed to the friendly federal judge, and got the ruling they wanted. The doubtful votes weren't checked, and Johnson became a senator.

Let's find out : Have him put his money where his mouth is. Bet him $100 if even two of those states are flipped by either recount or legal challenge. Very fair bet if he believes it.

Yes, they've said they can:

Raffensperger said he expects the recount to be done in time for Georgia's certification of the presidential results, which has a November 20 deadline. The Trump campaign is trying to delay certification in some key states as part of a longshot attempt to overturn the results through the Electoral College.

Raffensperger said he hopes to start the recount before the week ends. So far, 97 of Georgia's 159 counties have already certified their results, but all of the county certifications are still required by Friday, he said.

He said he would officially designate the presidential race as the subject of the risk limiting audit later Wednesday.

Raffensperger said once the results are certified on November 20, a candidate within the 0.5% margin will still be able to request a "recount," but that it would be a "scanned recount" done by machines.

Non Zero. MORE THAN ZERO!!! When they claimed zero. So it was a lie! That should get the lawyer who filed the suit censured by the court. The filing was a flat out lie.
After that response, the next question from the judge to Trump's lawyer started with "As a member of the bar...".

There's a very popular lawyer on youtube (LegalEagle), He puts out videos describing things from a lawyer's point of view. According to him, when the judge said that, he was telling Trump's lawyer that he was getting on the judge's last nerve, and if he didn't give a clear answer he risked being reported to the bar.

Why? Because Trump lost? Thatís hardly a reason.

Or three out of five. However long it takes for people to get disenfranchised taking time out of work, standing in long lines and having their votes thrown away.

Yes, Donald Trump and all his sycophants. No rational person of even average intelligence without a vested interest in undermining democracy can dispute that Biden was elected last week. What do you think needs to be done to get to the "truth?"

There are definitely psychos on both sides. I like your question about how we could get to the truth. It is a discussion that needs to be had. Iíd be fine with either candidate winning - if they actually won.

OK. Let's have that discussion. 47 states have reported their results. Joe Biden has enough Electoral votes to be President-Elect. He actually won. He is President-Elect.
