    Trump's numerous attempts to overturn the results of a free, fair election are finally at an end.

    Supreme Court dumps last of Trump's election appeals
    Reuters, Mar 8 2021 6:49 AM

    The Supreme Court today disposed of the last of three cases brought to the justices by former President Donald Trump challenging his election loss, bringing a muted end to his futile quest in the courts to hold onto power. The court without comment rejected Trump’s appeal challenging thousands of absentee ballots filed in Wisconsin, an election battleground that he lost to Democrat Joe Biden by more than 20,000 votes. Biden became president on January 20.

    It was the last of three petitions filed at the Supreme Court near the end of Trump’s presidency that the justices declined to take up. The court on February 22 turned away Trump’s other two appeals – a second Wisconsin challenge and one relating to voting in Pennsylvania, another pivotal state Trump lost. Lower courts previously had ruled against Trump in those three cases.

    Another recording of a Trump phone call has surfaced. He insisted he won Georgia and pressured a state investigator to look for fraud.

    Yes, the audio of that Trump phone call "surfaced" – but the chief investigator for Georgia's Secretary of State did her best to make sure it stayed buried. By the way, she's a Republican. What a surprise!

    Officials located December recording of Trump call in a trash folder on Georgia investigator's device
    CNN. Mar 14 2021 9:!9 PM ET

    Officials in the Georgia Secretary of State's Office located a recently released recording of former President Donald Trump's call to a state investigator in a trash folder on her device, a state official familiar with the situation confirmed to CNN. The discovery of the call comes after state officials originally told CNN they did not think audio of the call existed. The call added to the examples of Trump's extraordinary efforts to push false claims of widespread voter fraud and influence Georgia election officials as they certified the state's election results. It is not clear why Watson moved the audio of the call to her trash folder.

    The audio file of the December 23 call between the former President and investigator Frances Watson was discovered as the Georgia Secretary of State's Office responded to a public records request. CNN previously reported that in the December phone call to the Georgia Secretary of State's Office, Trump urged their top investigator, Watson, to find fraud in the 2020 presidential election, telling her she would be a "praised" for overturning results in favor of President Joe Biden.

    Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis had sent a round of letters to Georgia state officials in February, including the Georgia Secretary of State's Office, asking them to preserve documents relevant to election interference. Willis is currently conducting a criminal investigation into Trump's attempts to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia. The Secretary of State's office is also separately investigating Trump for his attempts to overturn the state's election results.

    Russia meddled in our 2016 Presidential election. Russia meddled in our 2020 Presidential election. Does anyone doubt Russia will meddle in our 2024 Presidential election?

    US intelligence report says Russia attempted to interfere in 2020 election with goal of 'denigrating' Biden and helping Trump

    Delusional Donald has spent many months complaining about a rigged election and insisting he won but the election was "stolen" from him. Delusional Donald will never acknowledge that the person who expended the most effort attempting to rig the election – and steal it from the winner, Joe Biden – is Trump himself. And Trump's legal troubles are mounting. "Lock him up! Lock him up!"

    Opinion: Trump's major problem in Georgia election probe
    Elie Honig, CNN Mar 16 2021 9:53 AM ET

    Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has now opened a grand jury investigation of former President Donald Trump's effort to overturn the 2020 election result in Georgia. This is a major step forward; the grand jury holds the power, by way of subpoenas, to compel witnesses to testify and to turn over other evidence, whether they want to or not. Yet it seems the most powerful evidence is already in the public record: multiple recordings of Trump, in his own words, trying desperately to convince Georgia officials to throw the election in his favor.

    The district attorney's Exhibit A ought to be Trump's now-infamous December 2020 phone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. In that call, Trump advised Raffensperger that "there's nothing wrong with saying that you've recalculated" and implored him to "find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have" to enable Trump to win Georgia by a single vote. And now we have Exhibit B: a six-minute recording of a December 23, 2020 phone call from Trump to Frances Watson, the chief investigator for the Georgia Secretary of State, urging her to find "the right answer": and focus on heavily Democratic Fulton County.

    Trump also contacted Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (asking him to convene a special session of the Georgia legislature to overturn the election) and state Attorney General Chris Carr (imploring him not to contest a legal effort to overturn Georgia's election results). It's hard to say what's more surprising about Trump's effort to steal Georgia: that he spent so much time begging, threatening, flattering and cajoling so many different officials or that he actually thought his gambit to steal the election would succeed.

    The Fulton County DA's investigation is still in its early stages – but the most powerful evidence may already be right in front of her.

    On November 5, McCarthy told Fox News (a.k.a. the Trump Cheerleading Channel), "President Trump won the election." McCarthy vowed to fight to ensure Trump's re-election. He supported a lawsuit seeking to invalidate millions of votes in Texas, he sought to overturn the election results in Arizona and Pennsylvania and he voted against certifying Biden's electoral votes. He now seems to have no memory of doing those things.

    Kevin McCarthy tries to rewrite history by claiming he didn't back Trump's efforts to overturn the election

    Best news story of the day:

    Trump wax figure moved in Texas because people kept punching it in the face
    The figure at Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks in San Antonio had “deep” scratches after repeated attacks by visitors.

    Delusional Donald continues to claim the 2020 Presidential election was "rigged." Delusional Donald continues to insist he won but the election was "stolen" from him. And what is really sad is that millions of blindly loyal Retrumplicans continue to believe his lies and continue to support him.

    Trump called McConnell a son of a bitch, said Dr. Fauci is full of crap and said Mike Pence should not have certified Biden's victory. No matter what Trump says or does, even inciting a riot, the Republican party supports him. That is sad.
