President Trump is making it clear that he believes he would win “easily” if this election comes down to just the “legal votes.” As vote counting continues in many states, it may have to eventually reach all the way up to the Supreme Court to decide what the “legal votes” actually are.
“I easily WIN the Presidency of the United States with LEGAL VOTES CAST. The OBSERVERS were not allowed, in any way, shape, or form, to do their job and therefore, votes accepted during this period must be determined to be ILLEGAL VOTES. U.S. Supreme Court should decide!” Trump wrote in a tweet that was flagged by twitter saying “Some or all of the content shared in this tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”
As cases start hitting the federal and district courts, investigations are now starting to pop up. In Michigan, the U.S Postal Service is investigating claims of alleged fraud at a post office branch in Traverse City, Mich., after a video was posted online that claimed a supervisor was instructing employees to backdate mailed ballots with a Tuesday postmark.
Michigan Rep. Senate candidate John James is also in a tight race and saw his once sizable lead disappear as the counting of ballots has continued. James released a statement on Thursday saying that there is enough evidence to call for an investigation into the fairness of the election in Michigan. “While Sen. Peters is currently ahead, I have deep concerns that millions of Michiganders may have been disenfranchised by a dishonest few who cheat.”
He added that those who object “likely have something to hide.”
