As part of his post-election attempts to retain the presidency, Donald Trump and his supporters filed 64 cases containing 187 counts in the six key battleground states, in addition to utilizing some of the recount and contest procedures available to them under state law. The former president maintains to this day that the 2020 election was stolen and the results fraudulent.
This Report takes a hard look at the very serious charges made by Trump and his supporters. The consequences of a president and a major party candidate making such charges are monumental. If true, our electoral system is in desperate need of repair. If not true, that must be said because such false charges corrode our democracy and leave a significant share of the population doubting the legitimacy of our system, seriously weakening the country.
To have 30 percent of the country lack faith in election results based on unsubstantiated claims of a “stolen” election is not sustainable in a democracy, and it discredits the political party making those charges.
We hope that setting out the full record in this Report will help restore faith in the reliability of our elections.
MSNBC - A new conservative report shows that there is “absolutely no evidence of widespread fraud” in the 2020 election, and debunks “each and every” one of former President Donald Trump’s false claims. The authors of the report, conservative lawyers and judges, are urging the GOP to “cease obsessing over the results of the 2020 election,” and hoping their work helps re-instill trust in our institutions. Former federal judge Thomas Griffith and Republican elections lawyer Ben Ginsberg join Morning Joe to discuss their report, “Lost, Not Stolen: The Conservative Case That Trump Lost And Biden Won the 2020 President Election.”
