Trump Campaign to File Another Lawsuit In Michigan
Suit to be filed in the U.S. District Court
President Donald Trump’s campaign is set to file a lawsuit in federal court as disputes mount following the state's presidential election results.
Tim Murtaugh, the communications director for the Trump campaign and general counsel Matt Morgan and campaign counsel Thor Hearne, announced the lawsuit on Tuesday.
The campaign is set to file the suit on Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan, The Washington Examiner reported.
According to the lawsuit, Michigan ran an unconstitutional election and seeks to block the Michigan secretary of state from declaring election results.
The campaign is also focusing on auditing the ballot count in Wayne County, Michigan.
The Trump campaign has already filed a couple of lawsuits in the state.
“We do not think we’re going to eat the apple in one bite, but a large part of these lawsuits is to gather further information,” Murtaugh said, according to The Daily Caller.
“We do ultimately believe that President Trump will win this election.”
The Examiner reported:
The new federal lawsuit claims that many Republican poll watchers in Wayne County, where Detroit is located, were excluded from the absentee ballot-counting process and were intimidated and harassed. It also seeks information about the voting technology used across the state after a failure to update software in Antrim County caused a glitch, resulting in 6,000 votes incorrectly being tabulated for Joe Biden rather than Trump.
A lawsuit by the Trump campaign was thrown out last week by a Michigan judge because it had not produced evidence to back up its charge over voter fraud.
Progress in other states
Neon Nettle reported on Tuesday that Joe Biden’s lead already dropped below 15,000 in Arizona, as President Donald Trump continues to make gains in the state.
The former vice president's lead has been reduced by thousands over the course of the last week.
The president is reducing Biden’s overall lead from 16,952 on Sunday afternoon to 14,746, according to another Maricopa County drop.
Trump was short in the Monday evening drop of ballots in terms of overall pace, taking 49.2 percent of the 6,495 votes, according to the Arizona Republic.
Last week, the Trump campaign made a staement as the establishment media ran with calling Biden 'President-elect.'
Trump 2020 campaign general counsel, Matt Morgan, issued this statement:
“This election is not over."
“The false projection of Joe Biden as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from final.”
