A U.S. Navy veteran, data scientist, and PA poll watcher alleged this week that 47 USB cards used during the state’s election have gone missing. He believes that as many as 120,000 votes cast in the election should be called into question.
Good morning to you. How are you doing? Hope your Thanksgiving was great. The president at the White House spent yesterday afternoon doing something he has done many times – that is to call our troops overseas. He thanked them for their service. He called them heroes. And he did something he hasn’t done since the November 3rd election which was taking questions from reporters. Maintaining that the election was rigged and that his legal team’s fight is far from over. He confirmed that he would leave the White House if the Electoral College votes next month for President-Elect Biden. Watch.
> If the Electoral College votes for Joe Biden will you concede.
Certainly I will. Under a know that I think there will be a lot of things happening between now and the 20th of January a lot of things. Massive fraud has been found. It’s going to be a very hard thing to concede.
Griff: Meanwhile the president wants a legal battle in Pennsylvania. A poll watcher and U.S. Navy veteran from Delaware county P.A. Gregory gave testimony at a hearing Wednesday in Gettysburg that he witnessed irregularities and fraud firsthand.
> 47 USB cards are missing. And they are nowhere to be found. Those cards, I demanded that the — they didn’t update the vote live time. They only updated it about once every two or three hours. I demanded that they update the vote so I could see what the — what the result was. And it was 50,000 votes.
Griff: Unclear exactly what or if the Trump team will file next in regards to these allegations. But in the case challenging the state’s certification of the results, a hearing is expected today. Now that centers around a state lawmaker’s claim that the voting process change is unconstitutional. We will see where that goes. The governor of Pennsylvania Tom Wolf is now asking the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania to step in. So, one thing for sure this fight is not over yet. The president digging in his heels. We will see what next week brings. Steve, Pete, Emily?
Emily: Thank you so much, griff. That’s exactly right. That’s my take away from his comments last night. He’s not going anywhere. He is not giving. In also that the next battleground will certainly be Georgia. We know in a lawsuit filed in the 100 pages of it. We see that the mainstream media sort of attacking typos and a lot of ancillary issues. It will be interesting to see the merits play out in court what exactly happens on that final scale. Pete?
Pete: You are right, Emily. He feels the same way his supporters do that the election did not feel above board. And when you have that many mail-in ballots and that few safeguards especially in key states it raises a lot of questions and I think these challenges are indispensable to ensure that going forward our elections are actually fair honest and legal. And these challenges will continue. And the president clearly showcasing, Steve, that he is committed to making sure every legal vote counts and that, listener, if it comes out that it is certified, that is what it is. Ultimately the fight is worth
