1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Senator Mitt Romney and Senator Ben Sasse both rip Donald Trump a new one



I’m not much of a Mitt Romney fan. I appreciate that he drew the line at treason and voted to convict and remove Trump during impeachment. But Romney has been in lockstep with Trump in confirming unqualified extremist judges and other shameful things. That said, Romney is genuinely coming out swinging at Trump tonight. For that matter, so is Republican Senator Ben Sasse.


   


Romney released this statement tonight about Trump: “Having failed to make even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy before any court of law, the President has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials to subvert the will of the people and overturn the election. It is difficult to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American President.” Ben Sasse also issued a lengthy statement condemning what Donald Trump is doing.


To be as clear as possible, Trump’s antics aren’t going anywhere. State legislatures magically overthrowing the election result is simply not a real thing. Trump is even privately admitting that he knows it’s over, and that he’s just screwing with us on his way out the door. But these statements from Mitt Romney and Ben Sasse are what we should be seeing from every Republican in office. We have a feeling Trump may have finally shoved more Republicans into clamping down on his nonsense, if only because he’s making his party look so bad, and some of them want to still have a future after Trump is gone.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: House Oversight Committee formally targets GSA Administrator Emily Murphy



Earlier today, Palmer Report pointed out that GSA Administrator Emily Murphy’s refusal to sign off on the transition was beginning to crumble, amid reports that some Trump White House officials have begun coordinating with the Biden transition team behind Donald Trump’s back. Now the House Oversight Committee is cracking down on Murphy.


   


A new four page letter, co-signed by the Chairs of the House Oversight Committee and House Appropriation Committee, explains that the House has been “extremely patient” but can no longer wait. Accordingly, Emily Murphy is now being ordered to brief the House committees on the transition holdup by Monday, with the threat of a full hearing to follow. We expect that if Murphy fails to comply by the deadline, she’ll find herself subpoenaed immediately thereafter.


Of course these kinds of procedural matters take time to play out. But the point of this letter is not to end up subpoenaing Emily Murphy or putting her in on the spot in a congressional hearing, much as we’d all love to see her squirm. The point of this letter is to make her realize she’s in for a prolonged world of hurt if she doesn’t cave and sign off on the transition.

Trump and FBI – News Review from Michael_Novakhov (10 sites): Counterintelligence from Michael_Novakhov (51 sites): Eurasia Review: Trump Lawyers Claim ‘Massive’ Election Fraud, Media Blackout

Citing witness affidavits, Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell argued that voter fraud was rampant in several Democrat strongholds and that President Donald Trump, not Joe Biden, won the election if illegal votes are thrown out.

“I know crimes, I can smell them. But I don’t have to smell this – I can prove it to you 18 different ways,” Giuliani, a former federal prosecutor before he served as mayor of New York City, told reporters on Thursday. 

“What I’m describing to you is massive fraud.”

He spoke of 682,770 mail-in ballots that witnesses swear were not properly inspected in Pennsylvania. There was also a worker in Detroit, Michigan who reported rampant illegal behavior – including backdating of mail-in ballots – in a sworn affidavit, he said.

Last but not least, some votes were allegedly processed multiple times, and there were precincts that recorded anywhere from 150 percent to 350 percent of voter turnout, which is “clear circumstantial evidence” of fraud, according to Giuliani. 

The precinct discrepancy was cited by Republican election officials in Wayne County, Michigan in their refusal to certify the results – only to have them change their mind on Wednesday, and then again on Thursday, saying they were coerced into certification by threats against them and their families.

In multiple places where Trump led on election night but Biden surged ahead thanks to mail-in ballots counted later, Republican observers were not allowed to be present when the envelopes were opened, thereby making it impossible to verify their validity, Giuliani argued. In Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, Democrats who sent in flawed ballots were given a chance to “cure” them, but Republicans were not, he added. 

In Wisconsin, he said the campaign found some 100,000 absentee ballots that weren’t actually requested in Democrat-heavy Madison and Milwaukee, which would be against state law. 

Sidney Powell, best known for representing Trump’s former aide General Michael Flynn, claimed that Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software were involved in deleting Trump votes and “injecting” votes for Biden, alleging that they processed votes in Germany and Spain and that they were linked to Venezuela, Cuba and China.

Trump campaign legal aide Jenna Ellis told reporters that the elections in the several disputed counties were “irredeemably compromised,” and that this will be demonstrated in the court of law – not the court of public opinion, where she said the members of the press would all be stricken from the jury as too biased.

The campaign’s goal wasn’t to overturn the election as such, but to ensure that the US had free and fair elections going forward, Ellis argued. If fraud succeeds, “no election will be secure from here on out.”

Ellis wasn’t the only one to clash with reporters. Giuliani said the conference’s purpose was to “get around the Iron Curtain of censorship” in both mainstream and social media, accusing the press of failing to accurately cover the lawsuits and the allegations and outright lying about them. 

Pushing back on a question that claimed multiple lawsuits have been dismissed, he said the campaign actually had only three right now, and had just dropped the one in Michigan because they got relief they sought.

As for the lawyers “dropping like flies,” as one reporter put it, that was because they and their families were receiving death threats, Giuliani said. 

“We’re headed to a very bad place,” the former mayor of New York City warned, noting that the “vicious press” has intimidated witnesses as well as lawyers, and that the “censorship by Big Tech and Big Media is almost as bad” as the alleged election fraud.

Democrats have insisted there was no “widespread” fraud and that Trump’s legal team had no evidence of any. While Trump has refused to concede, the mainstream media have called the election for Biden. Any claim that disagrees with that has been labeled by social media platforms as “disputed.”
