Trump still falsely claims he won presidential election
"Donald Trump's most recent legal defeat in Pennsylvania when she just heard Tom Photo telling you about, he is still refusing to concede the 2020 presidential election president's campaign fired up to supporters and seven this morning still casting doubt on the election results, and the president has been hinting all along that he still sees himself as a winner, including being a tweet.

"Bench appear Russia, so there's more on the Wayne County Board of Electors. Apparently, they split on whether to certify the election in Wayne County, and then they reverse themselves and voted unanimously to certify the Wayne County Board of Canvassers. It can switch their mind. They changed course Tuesday night, they did certify the results of the election. Deadlock decision had been lauded by Republicans and decried by Democrats after a lengthy public comment session. The vote is described as a targeted attack on Detroit, of course after hours and angry responses from Wayne County residents Change, in course, was approved by two Republicans and the two Democrats with the demand that the secretary of state's office conducting comprehensive audit of precincts with unexplained out of balance tallies. So my understanding about of the out of balance Scalise is that people filed for absentee ballots and then the number of absentee ballots that came in, did not match the number of absentee ballots that were in fact requested, so they want an audit to make sure That is that all of that is legit. Apparently, the Republicans listened to the comments, and they went ahead and certified the vote in August. Canvassers found 72% of the absentee voting precincts didn't match the number of ballots cast. The imbalances between August November are not exactly Harrison since August, Canvassing was based on results from 503 precincts. November's canvassing was based on 134 counting boards. Same situation in August earlier imbalances in 2016. Those were not enough to keep the same board from certifying the results in this year's primary and November 2016. The board's vote came after the absentee ballot pull books at 70% of his rights 134 absence, He counting boards were found to be out of balance without explanation. The mismatch buried anywhere from more from one to more than four votes. And so the number of absentee ballots they're actually cast were not the numbers that were actually taken down in the logs. And those discrepancies were like 124 votes in 134 absentee counting boards again that checks hundreds of votes doesn't ship thousands of votes level on tens of thousands of 150,000 votes. The Trump is in deficit so there should be a full scale again. All claims of voter irregularities and voter fraud should be fully investigated, certifying a vote, saying that the vote is not based largely in on voter fraud, voter irregularity. Is appropriate so long as you're also calling for an audit at the time. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal writing about the rage about Dominion voting right a lot, a lot of talk about two million voting. The suggestion is that Dominion voting is the software system that is used in some 28 states, including a bevy of Republican states. Texas doesn't use Dominion, but they're a bunch of red states that do use Dominion. According to The Wall Street Journal, it seems, have launched the theory that two million voting screwed around with a vote was in earlier, Miss Report of Enter in and from County, Michigan in 2016 Trump on 62% of its $13,600. Eyebrows rose this year when initial tally showed Biden up by 3000. In reality, Trump won 61% of and from County unofficial reporting was wrong. The underlying votes were counted correctly. Officials later explain In October, the county had to tweak the ballot information for two local races. Tabulating machines in the affected areas were updated, but some others weren't on Election day. The different data didn't line up right after being merged. The printouts from the tabulator did show accurate totals. In any case, the Michigan secretary of state's office said the air would have been identified during that county campus when Democrats and Republicans review the printed totals. Tape from each tabulator. There was another problem with the Dominion module in Gwinnett County, Georgia. Apparently, officials had trouble within a million module for adjudicating absentee ballots if the voter put a check mark in the circle, instead of filling it in some adjudicated ballots, said the county were displayed as in progress, but would not move over to be accepted. County ended up re adjudicating some votes until November, 5th Which is basically they looks like they fixed the problem. A couple of counties in Georgia had trouble of electronic poll books, but that would not really affect vote totals. It would affect wait times of precincts. Then, of course, there's footage from a house here in a few years ago, where Princeton Computer science professor named Andrew Appel said voting machines could theoretically be hacked. But just because the system is vulnerable does not mean that it actually was hacked. No, Here's something to remember about two million. Okay, There's been a lot of talk about Dominion and its ties. We'll get to that in one second. Dominion makes hundreds of millions of dollars a year by selling its voting systems if they were that vulnerable to hack If those Dominion voting systems were, in fact that easy to be gamed to the affected millions of votes were tabulated the wrong way. Not only is that company bankrupted his suit into the ground, everybody goes to jail. I mean, especially if there was fraud involved people going to jail. Right, so the incentives don't really aligned to be in the voting. Voting system business and then create a voting system that can be easily rigged by somebody from the outside, especially when you saw these things all over the world, particularly in Western democracies. Suspicion is worthwhile. Unjustified suspicion based on lack of evidence. That's a different so we need more evidence more evidence right again. I wanna get Sydney fell on the program so she can explain exactly what releasing the crack and we'll look like here. I think it's really, really important that we have all the information possible. Because again election integrity really, really does matter coming up. We'll talk about the need for evidence. If you're gonna claim widespread voter fraud is the bench.
Michigan officials call for audit after state certifies election results
"The chairs of the Republican National Committee and Michigan's Republican Party are calling on Michigan's boards of state canvassers. Delay certifying results of the presidential campaign for two weeks to allow for a full audit of votes in Wayne County, the state's largest. They cite unsubstantiated claims of irregularities alleged by losing Republican Senate candidate NPR's Ron Elving says other legal efforts by President Trump and his supporters to de Legitimize election results have not been successful. In Pennsylvania, you got a blizzard of court filings of the state and federal levels that have produced basically nothing. One after another has been withdrawn or dismissed with no change. Georgia certified its results on Friday, so another one in the barn, the Trump campaign could still seek another machine recount there after the hand recount that's already been done. But all the relevant statewide officials have already signed off, including the governor, who is a major

"Facing an election laws. Donald trump turns to raw political power to try to bend. The outcome by brian bennett. This article is part of the debrief times politics newsletter during his failed campaign to win another four years in office president. Donald trump repeatedly used the power of his office to boost his chances in employing. The white house has a campaign backdrop. Having his secretary of state give a campaign speech during an official diplomatic trip and spreading baseless claims about voting fraud. From behind the presidential seal. Now he's using his office to try to reverse his loss. Trump invited a delegation of michigan republican lawmakers to meet with him at the white house on friday as that state is on the verge of formerly certifying. That president-elect joe biden won more votes judges have tossed out. Trump's claims of widespread voter fraud in michigan and other states so now trump appears to be trying to use raw political power and influence in a hail mary attempt to convince sitting state lawmakers to disenfranchise millions of michigan voters. The white house meeting follows tuesday night. Phone call trump reportedly made to a republican member of the board of canvassers in michigan's wayne county which includes detroit after. The board voted to certify. The vote tally hanging over. Friday's meetings is more than the power of the office. Trump is also building a new fundraising juggernaut. As he fights the election results trump's massive campaign fundraising list is sending appeals to donors nominally to help his legal defense but a large portion of the funds is going to a new political action committee called save america that trump can use to steer donations to the campaigns of politicians. He favors after repeated failures to show widespread election fraud in court. Trump's legal team has acknowledged that its current strategy is to delay certification of votes in key states in order to open the door for gop held state legislatures to intervene and send a raft of pro-trump delegates to the electoral college on december fourteen rather than delegates who represent how people voted. That strategy is exceptionally unlikely to work and would mean reversing. The intention of millions of voters people close to trump believe. He's putting up a robust fight as a way to energize his supporters. So they'll come with him as television viewers after he leaves office and bolster his political sway as a kingmaker in the republican party. But he's already doing a lot of damage to the democratic process. Along the way and seeding unfounded distrust in the election results among core parts of his base that could persist for years. Trump added to that damage on tuesday when he fired his top cybersecurity official responsible for securing the election. Chris crabs who had said his team of federal government. Experts had not seen any signs of electronic votes being changed when president. Teddy roosevelt called the presidency. A bully pulpit. He meant it was a powerful perch to advocate for policy agenda but trump has taken the muscular use of office in a different direction using it to literally bully fellow republicans into backing his personal political ambitions and go along with his false claims that the election was stolen from him. A broad and unproven conspiracy. That has been widely debunked and repeatedly rejected in court. He simply trying to steal it through. The levers of power says heather cox. Richardson a historian at boston college. This is unprecedented and not since eighteen. Seventy six has a candidate so flagrantly used political power to try to change the outcome of a vote after election day that was during reconstruction when republicans grabbed the presidency for ohio governor. Rutherford hayes with brute political force by pressing congress to steer the result in hayes his favor. But there's still one key difference between now and then in eighteen seventy six the vote margins were legitimately unclear whereas in twenty twenty biden has clear winning margins in the states. Trump is disputing since then states have voted in reforms to the electoral college system designed to prevent a politician from exerting personal influence over the democratic process as the country watch is trump is testing those reforms to ensure the will of the voters is honored.
Republicans denounce Trump's attempts to pressure Michigan officials
"Look. Your state is in the middle of this election controversy and as we speak the president has invited to of your republican leaders in the michigan legislature to the white house. He apparently the president does not want to accept the results of the election in michigan and appears to want the legislature to step in and award the electors to donald trump. Your reaction to that. Yeah well the the concept of the president asking someone to that is extremely troubling. I mean that's offering what the the democracy in my view and that's a terrible thing With respect to asking the legislative leaders to come meet with him at this point i wouldn't be critical of the legislative leaders. I mean step back and look at it and many people have strong feelings when they first hear this. But if the president of the united states calls you up and says he wants to meet with you. It's pretty hard to say you're not gonna go meet with him. It's really their actions. Coming out of a mess. How should be defined again. They both gone on the record to say that they didn't see any reason. There would be any change from the normal process. Taking place in michigan. They're both on the record for that. I would hope they would reiterate that to the president to say you know. That's the way it works in michigan and there's nothing to talk about if he asks for something inappropriate. Do you see any chance of fraud or improper handling of the ballots. That would in any way a raise questions about the results of the election in michigan. Now i have now. And i don't know anyone who has if you look at it all Eighty-three counties in michigan. Now certified by one by a fairly large margin actually. Republicans did well in michigan other than the presidential race. So if you look at it there's no indications in fact i believe some of the results even in wayne county or the detroit area which is the area that many people are talking about. Actually they have better results in terms of having their precincts match up on their numbers than they had four years ago. So if anything. i think. This is a good solid election. Taking place in michigan and i would expect the board of canvassers on monday to vote to certify the results. That's what they should do. So that's the state board of canvassers. And i wanna get to that in a second but we did have this episode this week. Where the two republican members of the canvassing board for wayne county which includes detroit. I said they would not vote to certify the election. Then they did then. They said they came under pressure and tried to recant it. Then there's also the suggestion that donald trump may have talked to at least one of them and possibly put pressure on them to say that they would not vote to certify. What do you make of all of that. The got certified. I think that's the important illegal point. What's trolling through. All this is the president's behavior and the people on his legal team in history. I mean there are actually undermining democracy with their actions again. If you have a ballot issue you should go to court. You prevent san evidence and you'll out of court decide all this other stuff is very damaging today actually. I'm concerned about the damage. That's going to go on for the next several years in terms of misinformation you know creating doubts in the minds of his supporters. Things like that. That's what's really troubling about. This is. I expect the process to work. I expect president-elect biden to become the next president through a legal process that were today If you look at it there hadn't been according the country to my knowledge that has found any merit any of the claims made. Let's get this thing over with but there's a lot of damage. President trump has done terrible things. I mean this man has the divider in chief in our nation and it's an awful outcome in terms of his behavior. We should point out that even though you're a two term republican governor of your state you actually endorse joe biden in this election. Why did you do that well as easy. I'm an american. I and it's in the best interest of america to have someone who's going to try to heal our country. Donald trump has been the divider and chief. The incivility in our country has reached a record level. I didn't think it could get worse. Actually post-election is showing can go even lower with this current behavior. This is awful and we need somebody to bring us back together. And joe biden. I believe can do that for the people that said they voted for trump even on a policy basis. I'm a nerd. I'm proud nerds dime into policy. Might make allergies. Were particularly that good. He had a few reasonable things that he did that. Were good but beyond that. Many of us steps really weren't that thoughtful nor good And so i think it's time for new leadership in our country. So not only did. I not want to vote for trump by found good reasons to vote for biden up and i'm glad to see that he won michigan. So you've targeted all of your criticism in this interview at donald trump. But what about the rest of your party. I assume you're you're still a republican. I'm still republican. Although a lot of republicans like the have other commentary on me. Yeah yeah let me give you an example. We have a reporter. Who works for us at yahoo news jon ward over the last week i think four times. He has emailed the comms. Directors of every republican senator. That's fifty three senators and only two of them got back and said yes and acknowledged that there was not significant fraud in this election. And we're willing to criticize a donald trump for how he handled this transition and his efforts to subvert the apparently subvert the election just two out of fifty three. What do you make of that. What do you make of of people in your party. Who have not been willing to do. What you're doing on this podcast right now and i wish there were more i really do and i would have expected more but as a practice marijuana also be conscious because these are good people. These many of these people have been public servants for years and to be blonde. Donald trump is a bully. I mean i've been on the record for that. I was as i'm a nerd. That was bullied a kid. So i understand bullying and if you're in a position like they are in many cases you have an issue with a bully out there and you're going to be pretty cautious about what you say because you don't want to be the next person that's a target of a bully. S my point. That's why i was happy to part president-elect biden was get this guy out of office and yeah backward. people actually respect one another and treat people with civility. Tell us about your own relationship with trump. because he's he's gone after you clearly and but you overlap with them while you were governor right so you must imagine. You guys must've talked. Was it like yeah. We never have had what i would describe as a real positive relationship because again if you look at that context i believe in being a positive person so even these comments are hard for me to get because i don't like being negative on anyone. I like to spend my time looking for the good in people but in his case he i would make an exception the way i viewed at many cases is he didn't understand a lot of the issues. That were going on in michigan. So i just sort of did my own thing and i didn't worry about if he was taking credit for it for example he to talk about michigan's great comeback. All that's fine. We did make michigan comeback in. We had it going. The comeback well underway before he ever became president. And if you wanna to take credit that's fine. I try to work with them. Because we're fellow public servants. He was at the federal level as at the state level. So i didn't go out of my way to generate conflict. Because if i could help michigan by getting them on board to do something for michigan that would be good
Michigan Secretary Of State On Challenges Certifying Election Results In Her State
"A little known board of county officials in Michigan made bigger headlines than Congress this week. That's because for a moment, the two Republicans on the Wayne County Board of Canvassers seemed to hold the fate. Of Michigan's presidential election results in their hands. And now, as Republican lawmakers from Michigan visit the White House and President Trump's attempts to overthrow the legitimate results of the election dragon, the Trump campaign's focus appears trained on Michigan, which is why we wanted to invite Michigan's Democratic secretary of state on to the program. Jocelyn Benson is in charge of the election in Michigan. Welcome. Good evening. Thanks for having me you have had quite a week. Let's let's start with this business in Wayne County, which is home to Detroit, of course to officials saying they would not certify. Then they said they would not. They want to take it back. Where does this stand? Well, First, it's clear that the voters of Wayne County in Michigan have spoken. They've made a choice. There's no legal or factual basis to question that choice. And the Wayne County Board of Canvassers did in an open meeting as an official process, making official vote to can approve the and certify the results of the election in Wayne County justice every county in the state has done on campus is required by law to certify results. That's what they've done, and now we expect the border state canisters to do the same. Okay, so that that vote that stands, Yes, votes. And when you're an official state board what's after you've taken and you know in a meeting that complies with the Open meetings act, and that's what occurred here. Well, let me move you two today and this meeting at the White House. The White House is characterizing these visiting Michigan lawmakers that this is a routine meeting. That's what White House spokesperson Kayleigh Mcenany saying. Is it routine for the president of the United States to call Michigan state officials and invite them to a private meeting at the White House? No, I don't know if it's ever happened before. Certainly not at a time like this, where there's so much focus on Michigan as you mentioned, But it's important to note that both the speaker and the Senate majority leader have stated they would not obstruct the will of the voters, which they've confirmed has been quite clear, and we have no reason to doubt that yet and I'm going to continue to expect they'll Follow the law as it's very clearly laid out in our state Constitution and state statutes. What should occur at this point? And do you have any Intel on the agenda for the meeting? How it's going on? Not at all? No, I really stay out of that process on the state's chief election officer. My job is to just make sure that the The will of the voters is what rules the day. Well, may I ask that the broad path that President Trump and his lawyers appear to be charting involves convincing Michigan State Board of Canvassers not to certify the Biden victory in Michigan. And then convincing state lawmakers to appoint electors who would overturn the will of Michigan voters. Is that a correct summary and if so, would that be legal? But know that it is potentially a path that I imagine people may imagine in their heads stick but there, But there's not something there's nothing in the law that or nothing, actually, that's occurred yet that would indicate that anyone is going down that path, and that's what I think it's important to focus on. Indeed, every one of Michigan's 83 counties have certified the election, Republican and Democratic clerks have confirmed That there's no evidence of widespread irregularities, and the board has previously started fight elections when there were more clerical mistakes and narrower margins of victory. Then there is this time around, and so it really being agreed this departure from their legal responsibility and requirements for them to do anything other than certified the election on Monday, and May I ask you Have you personally seen any evidence is the person in charge of the election message? Men? Michigan have you seen any evidence of widespread fraud of wrongdoing of rigging the vote? No, not at all. And not only that This has been one of the more scrutinized elections in modern history for our state. So if there was anything to discover or find, we certainly would have found it at this point, So there is no reason that you can point to that Biden winning Michigan by more than 150,000 votes that that would not stand. No, not at all and his. I started out by saying that it's actually it's very clear that the voters have spoken. It's very clear that there is no legal or factual basis to question that choice.
Giuliani peddles election conspiracy theories and falsehoods.
"Georgia audit now. Complete the hand count of nearly five million votes reaffirming biden the winner. The first democratic presidential candidate to win the state in nearly thirty years. There was news today about michigan as well where the president lost by about one hundred and forty eight thousand votes. we've now learned. The president has called hit called republican officials in wayne county home to detroit and michigan an eleventh-hour attempt to invalidate votes president trump calling on state. Republicans sleep tonight on your side. History will be on your side. You're conscious side and more knows when you go to meet your maker. Your soul is going to be very very war that along with legal challenges playing out in several states and a public campaign. Alleging voter fraud without evidence here to break it down for us. Chief white house correspondent. Jonathan karl jonathan. It is hard to know where to begin with all of the legal challenges that seem to spin each day. Let's backtrack just a little bit in michigan. With the on again off again certification of votes by canvassers in wayne county and the president reaching out to state leaders. Where does all the stand well You know the the these two republican members of the canvassing board had. I said that they were not going to certify the election and they said they agreed to certify it and then we we learned that the president called them directly. You imagine that you are a local local official on a canvassing board In wayne county michigan and your phone rings and it's donald trump the president of the united states. So it's quite a bit of you know it's quite a bit of leverage with president has and he talked to them but the bottom line is they have certified. It's hard to see out. There are no kind of take back. So we accept the wayne county certification just as we accepted every one of our eighty three counties certification as it was properly made in public vote in public meeting And now moving forward and calling on the board of state canvassers to do the same now. The president is also going to be reaching out in meeting with the republican leaders of the state legislature in In michigan Bringing them to the white house for a meeting and this as his legal team is suggesting that maybe the direction they want to go is to go directly to state legislatures to essentially overrule. How their states voted And to send their own electors to the electoral college. American democracy cracked last night. But it didn't break michelle. I gotta say it's it's a it's a crazy idea. It's basically it's talk of nullifying in election. And i and i should point out that even though these republican leaders From michigan or to meet with the president They have both been on record saying that. That is not the way. It works in michigan state. Legislature doesn't simply you know. Look the other way and not do something on its own in the face of what happened On election day but yet here we are and in terms of all of this is any of its seen as any type of interference. We've got a president a sitting president as well as a candidate in an election. Making phone calls as well as meeting with people that are involved directly with the election. Well there's a lot of strange activity is ranging a lot of questions and we also had a One of i think probably the most bizarre press conference. I've ever seen tied to a president. Good afternoon and thank you. Very much for coming guiliani. And the president's legal team held a press conference at the republican national committee headquarters in washington that you know. Frankly i i. I really don't know how to describe it as the except to say it was unhinged and what emerged very quickly is because it's not a singular voter fraud in one state. This pattern repeats itself in a number. Isn't there was vast conspiracy talk. President trump won by a landslide. We are going to prove it and there was a conspiracy that included a the clinton foundation. That could have been mickey mouse. That could have been a dead person even a mention of hugo chavez who died i don't know i think about seven years ago. These people were further away than my cousin. Vinny was from witnessed. They couldn't see a thing. It would vary very strange. Strange press conference the real thing you need to know though. Is that the legal cases that have been brought by the by. The trump team are going nowhere. They have lost over and over again and they've been forced to withdraw lawsuits while there quickly running out of time on this and so with where we're at with this giuliani and his briefing in the president. Set to meet with people today from those canvassers in that area where republicans at what's the endgame. Republicans for the most part are saying that the president should be allowed to pursue his legal challenges. A as far as they may go to be proof but they're also not for the most part repeating these crazy allegations and privately. They're saying that they know the president's laws have you seen that. I haven't seen proof yet. How many lives do you think are at risk here if this transition remained stalled. Well look. We've you've heard the projections projections. Are that if nothing fundamentally changes between now and beginning february we're like to lose up to four hundred total of four hundred thousand lives and other one hundred fifty thousand lives but of course we're in the middle of the national health crisis we're in the middle of a pandemic and the world doesn't stop. Stir president-elect what do you think the president is doing. What are americans witnessing here. We choose my words think. They're witnessing an incredible irresponsibility credibly damaging messages being sent to the rest of the world about how democracy functions. And i think it is and because of the president's refusal to acknowledge What happened in the election. Well i don't know his motive. But i just think it's totally irresponsible. The team of president elect now biden is not getting the briefings. They're not coordinating with the warp speed team on the vaccine. All all the things that are going to have to be carried out by the biden administration They've been stonewalled by by the president's refusal to accept the election
Giuliani makes accusations of fraud that the Trump team has failed to support in court
"Well. Donald trump continues to refuse concession in the presidential election rudy. Giuliani is still bungling attempt at legally overturning. The election results now. They've brought their cases to court every time they've done so have basically noticed that there's no evidence and the cases get thrown out as a result on thursday meeting today. The trump campaign did drop the lawsuit seeking to block michigan's results assigned. Perhaps that they believe most they're most likely path to success is a political one persuading the states elected republicans to award trump a state. He lost now time. Also reports a similar theme when it comes to rudy giuliani. Who had an unhinged crazy press conference this morning. Trump's lawyers don't have to win in court they only have to wreak enough havoc in the legal system and so enough doubt among the american public. That state boards slow their process of certifying the election results thus potentially politicizing the process by which states confirm the electoral winner and so one of the other examples of the chaos. They're trying to so in. This electoral process is the wayne. County board of canvassers have already voted unanimously to certify the election results which indicate the joe biden won their county but at the same time we're hearing from trump's legal team including gina ellis. Who's the legal adviser for the trump campaign Saying things like this. She actually tweeted this breaking this evening. The county board of canvassers in wayne county michigan refuse to certify the election results. That's a lie. They did certify the election results. If the state board follow suit the republican state legislator will select the electors huge win for donald trump. I mean they're. They're trying to steal the election in plain sight. There is no question about it and during rudy giuliani's press conference today. He aired all sorts of grievances. regarding so-called widespread election fraud refused to provide evidence even though he claimed that he had the evidence and proceeded to say things that have already been debunked in court. And i'll go through a little bit of that in just a minute jank. Why don't you jump in so you have to understand. This is not conjecture and this is not our perspective. When donald trump drops a lawsuit the actual case in michigan that means he has no evidence that could overturn the results so when he goes the certification process and representatives to just hand them. The electors is set of biden. He's basically saying we know we lost this election. There's no earthly way. We could prove it in court because we don't have any evidence so let's just steal it we're allowed to steal it if you just name different electors. Would that end democracy. Yeah but who cares. We'd we'd remain in charge so dropping a lawsuit and going to electors is by definition admitting we lost but we'd like to steal it nonetheless so that's the kind of outrage that we're in right now. Meanwhile raju secretive sydney ballet. Cover this before She says we have a fire. Hose of secret evidence. Okay but the good news for rudy. You went to court. Court is way you present the secret of it is. You can't go to court and say your honor. We should definitely rule in our favor. But we're going to have to keep all of our evidence secret. It's not really how it works. And when he went to court he got clowned absolute
Tyson suspends plant managers amid virus betting claim
"Is just getting old and it's getting more and more dangerous by the day and that's letting trump had this fantasy of saying that he still won the election. Somehow the first example here is a story. I talked about yesterday. The two republican election canvassing board members in wayne county michigan and. They're now trying to take back their votes to approve the certification so initially they voted no than yes and now. They're trying to say no again. They got a call from trump. On tuesday night after the meeting thanking them for their support and lo and behold on wednesday they suddenly wanted to take back their approval their reasoning. They were bullied. I'm not joking quote after the vote. The public comment period began in dozens of people. Made personal remarks against me and mr hartman. The comments made accusations of racism and threatened me and members of my family. The public comment continued for over two hours. And i felt pressured to continue the meeting without a break and quote. Here's the translation I'm a racist and people realize the truth and called me a racist and now i'm sad also. I didn't ask for a break boo freakin. Who isn't it kind of weird that the people who loved to say f your feelings and call liberals snowflakes are actually the most fragile people. It's ridiculous to think that these people are the tough ones. They always act like they're the victims. I haven't mentioned these people's names yet so here they are monica. Palmer and william hartman. Who goes by bill. You can find them on twitter as at monica s palmer and at hartman dude and hartman has two ends. Do with that information what you will.

Michigan's largest county certifies election results after Republicans earlier blocked certification
"Ongoing and disputes in Wayne County, Michigan, over the certification of election results. Republican members of the board of Canvassers in Wayne County, Michigan, had agreed to certify the results of the election. Those results going to job Garden. But the GOP board members agreed to that only if there was going to be a ballot audit. But now we're learning. Those Republicans are looking to rescind on that agreement after the secretary of state said that oughta requirement was not minding.

Trump fires nation's top election security official who disputed fraud claims
"A town were. Disagreement is par for the course. Today there was one thing that almost all of washington could agree on namely that the government's top election security cyber cyber security official. Chris crabs did a great job protecting our democracy and did not deserve to be fired. Chris crabs was dismissed last night via presidential tweet after he repeatedly pushed back on trump's claims of election fraud and after his agency refused white house. Requests to edit or remove informational accurate content which was pushing back against trump's false election claims most notably krebs cybersecurity and infrastructure. Security agency cisa. It's a unit within the department of homeland security last week called the november third election quote the most secure in american history adding that there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes changed votes or was in any way compromised and quote democrats today reacted to krebs firing with predictable outrage but notably they were joined by many republicans including some of the president's most ardent defenders in congress to presents variety to the confusion entails. I'm sure i'm not the only one that we'd like. Return to more of a lot on what's normally of course. Well chris krebs is rightfully earning plaudits in an enhanced reputation for a job. Well done and for standing up to this president. This lack of normalcy is likely to continue for the remaining nine weeks left to go in this administration. We all need a way to get through it. So i'm happy to give you one. I'm happy say the joining us now to discuss this story and others is someone who obviously needs no introduction on this show or anywhere else the inestimable. Rachel meadow rachel. It is so great to see you here. I'm going to ask you the first question on behalf of all of your viewers how are you. I am great valley and let me just start by saying how thankful i am to you for doing for stepping in for me on zero notice and doing this at length. You've just been fantastic and my staff loves working with you and you just. I've been watching every night and you guys are doing an amazing job and so i am grateful to you for making it possible for me to be important which is Which has been a trip. But i'm i'm fine. I have continued to test negative through this whole thing. Which means that. I'm getting close to the end of my quarantine period. I will hopefully think potentially be back hosting either tomorrow night or the night after in which case i will have more to say about where i been in what i've been doing and what it's been like. I definitely have some stuff to say about that. And i want to let people know what's been going on but bottom line is i'm grateful to you and i'm finding i will be back in something that looks like your chair pretty said well you come in the time that is needed for you to come and as i remind our viewers all the time This continues to be your staff who put the show together and it has your dna and it's so we're we're glad for that. I want to ask you about this topic. We were just talking about chris. Crabs a man who was responsible for trying to keep at least outside interference and cyber interference out of our election. He told people last week he thought he was going to get fired and then last night in typical fashion. He got fired by tweet for doing his job. The president directly contradicted him saying he was wrong about what he said. This election was not safe. Votes were changed votes that were cast for trump became biden votes and chris. Krebs is now no longer there. What do you make of this. I a couple of things i mean. In terms of krebs himself. I feel like it's worth reflecting. On the fact that i don't know that there is anybody else who has served particularly at a high level in the trump administration who has come out of it not just with an enhanced reputation for having done a job very well and done right by the country and taking something. That was very very difficult. That other people have had a really hard time with and sort of nailing it doing it well but also leaving not just with his badge of honor of being fired by the president for having done his job well leaving without having compromised himself without having bit his tongue without having kowtowed to the president or compromised himself in any way that was trying to either stave off himself being fired or trying not to rock the boat or trying to go along to get along. Which so many good people have fallen prey to because that's the way the president manipulates people gets what he wants and so i think chris crabs is being lauded justifiably by people on all sides of the ideological spectrum and all levels of government for having done a really good job but he also really in some ways stands alone in terms of having done well and done right and not having bent himself to the vagaries of this president. I think that's really important. I will also say the alley. That i think there's an institutional thing to watch out for. Because part of the reason we started talking about crabs potentially being fired last week was when a divisional chief at cisa got fired. Then krebs himself got fired. His deputy also got fired. What's happened is this agency has been decapitated and that has a couple of risks. One is that this is a dozen just work on election security. They are responsible for example for protecting vaccine. Researchers from what appears to be a robust international malign effort to interfere with and steal vaccine data by actors like potentially north korea iran russia That's really important. We reported in recent weeks on hospitals being hit with ransomware attacks russian-speaking gangs from the former soviet union hitting us hospitals in the middle of this pandemic with ransomware attacks and locking their computer systems. That's also with instances remain. We need an agency. That's good at that stuff but also in terms of the election. i mean the there are still being counted. There are recounts happening. there are certification. Tallies that are coming up and people including senators on the intelligence committee have warned that this is one of the times when we are quite vulnerable to disinformation and potentially foreign interference. Somebody might target the understanding of the american people to try to confuse us an upset us and muddied the result of the election now as it is being finalized and finally tabulated and so two houses a plan so well not just to have him ousted but to have all the whole upper echelons of the agency taken out for these reasons at this time is very dangerous for lots of different reasons. And i'm i'm very very uncomfortable with not just what this means for but what the implications are for our national security one of the reasons i would like you back is because rather than doing it myself. I'd like to hear your narration of this legal clown car. That is driving around the united states stopping michigan last night with the board of canvassers in wayne. County not agreeing to certify detroit's election results than fifteen million three hours later after getting pressure decided to do so. Rudy giuliani walking into a court. Case after twenty eight years Walk into a courtroom in philadelphia not really understanding the law very well. Republicans putting pressure on the secretary of state of georgia. It is a bit of a clown car but they are doing stuff to stop this election from being certified and to stop the administration from taking the reins and getting their transition moving. Yeah that's right. And i think you had really interesting conversation. Stacey abrams about this earlier in the hour alley. And i. I think that one thing. That's that's interesting that we can see at work is what you were talking about with her about the secretary of state and georgia the republican secretary of state who's absolutely been involved in contentious voting rights disputes with voting rights advocates like abrahams with democrats in georgia but his emerging here as a sort of normal republican and not a trump republican in the sense that he's not exactly a champion of voting rights in georgia georgia's had all these troubles but he's also not willing to go along with the insanity of the trump republican claims that the georgia election should be thrown out because of some magic dust that they've imagined they can cast over those election results so i do think that this is accelerating in some small ways with republican elections officials whether it's local commissioners in pennsylvania or the secretary of state in georgia or other people who are just sort of you know regular elected officials who are responsible for election integrity finding themselves affronted by the president and his legal team are trying to do in a way that i think maybe is giving us a little bit of a peak had a post trump republican party or at least where the schism might be between trump and and republicanism as we move forward.
Why the Trump campaign continues to fight election results despite court losses
"The presidential election. President Trump lost the election. Counties and states are starting to certify results of Biden's victory. The Trump campaign continues to mount legal challenges, and they continue to fail. But even though his defeat is clear, the president refuses to concede we want to talk more about why and what it might mean for the country. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson is here for that. How? Tamara? Hi, Mary Louise. The president insists he is challenging the results because he really believes he won. Really, With all the facts pointing otherwise. Is there more to this? I think there is more to it. Donald Trump's brand is about being a winner about never, ever losing. Remember, he's always come out of every loss, like his bankruptcies or failed businesses. Somehow making himself look like a winner. This election is the biggest, most public losses ever suffered. So the stakes for his political future and his ability to continue to monetize his brand are very high. There is a kind of method to his madness. He needs to create this false narrative to be able to walk off the stage without admitting he lost so he can maintain political viability, maintain a firm grip on the base of the Republican Party, especially in case he wants to run again. But there are also real consequences to that. He's his refusal to concede defeat or to accept a peaceful transfer of power to spread these false conspiracy theories are hurting Americans confidence in the most basic element of our democracy, which is free and fair elections. We know from polling that growing numbers of Republicans feel that believed that Trump won the election and it was stolen from him. Another Syrian, making the rounds that I want you to speak to more some of the president's defenders. In fairness, Even some conservatives who don't seem too particularly like President Trump. They have argued Look, Democrats never accepted Trump as the legitimate president. Democrats in their hearts didn't really except the 2016 outcome. This argument goes so. So what is the difference? Moralize and what is the difference? I think there is a difference. He has a absolute right to contest. This is long as he wants in the court. But what happened in 2016? Hillary Clinton did not challenge the legal outcome of the election. She called Trump and conceded even before the networks had called the 270 electoral votes for him. She did win the popular vote, but no one says that Trump didn't win under the rules. Of how America elects its president. He it was the legitimate president. They might not a liked him. He lost the popular vote. But that's different than what's happening now, you know, Trump allies. Even down to some local Republicans in Wayne County, Michigan, actually resisted certifying the results before reversing themselves. Last night, they appeared to be making actual attempts to undermine legitimate ballots cast in Heavily democratic, racially diverse cities. So a lot of Republicans are now saying, Hey, you've got to put up or walk it. Walk away. Don't let the perception settle that you're a sore loser, just trying to overturn a fair election. What is it? Steak for the president here for Donald Trump personally. I think there's a lot of steak, you know, he has mused privately about running in 2024. He's setting up a super PAC that would fund his expenses for that. There also are a lot of consequences for the Republican Party. Is it tries to chart its future? Put aside, all the other Republicans want to run in 2024, which they really can't do? As long as he's out there, saying he might But you know the debate about what is Trump is imposed. Trump has been going on since 2016. But it can't really continuous long as Trump is on the stage. You know, there's that old country music song. How can I miss you when you won't go away? And right now the Republican Party stands for whatever Trump wants at a given moment, But there are also some perils for Trump himself continuing to aggressively contest The results of this election and his allies have been saying Don't look like a sore loser. They're charting a path for him to coming back in 2024, which includes a graceful concession, cooperating with Biden may be giving a farewell address with a kind of MacArthur resc pledge. I shall return you will in the more immediate future. Look ahead with us because one way or another January 20th is coming. President elect Biden will become president Biden. Do we know quite what to expect from President Trump at that point? No, we don't. There are a lot of questions. We don't know what it's like to have an ex president who's not quietly off the stage. That's kind of the final Democratic norm for presidents to gracefully give your successor a chance, a sign of respect for the voters and the outcome of the election. But we have every reason to believe that Trump will be tweeting every day. Even as a private citizen, he might create his own streaming digital platform to as an alternative to Fox Baby who launches 2024 campaign. We don't think he'll weigh in in a detailed way on policy debates, but he may try to maintain his dominance in the media and dominance in the media. NPR's Mara Liasson, Thank you for your reporting. You're welcome.
