The current US president’s hordes of lawyers are taking legal action against the alleged election fraud in several states. An expert assesses where things could get tricky.
The election of the US president remains competitive. In the relevant states it is extremely scarce.
President Donald Trump suspects election fraud and is taking action against it with “a lot of lawsuits”.
One expert says that this could only make things tricky in Pennsylvania – but otherwise he sees little effect.
If only legitimate votes were counted, he would win the election “with ease,” says Trump: In his 17-minute monologue, the US president reads a long list of allegations of alleged electoral fraud – all of which have not yet been substantiated. But he wants to respond with “a lot of complaints”. And via Twitter he demanded “Stop the count!” (in German: «Stop the counting!»).
The choice for a seat in the White House is a head-to-head race, and the race will be close in the relevant swing states. Now Donald Trump wants to secure the presidency through his lawyers.
In at least one swing state, this could be a “tricky thing”, US expert Thomas Jäger told Bild.de: In Pennsylvania, due to delays in the postal service, election documents that arrive by Friday are valid – but this could be discussed again said the Supreme Court in making this decision. Therefore, the chances for Trump’s team that the lawsuit will lead to a different outcome are intact. But: If Biden wins Pennsylvania early, the delayed absentee votes are irrelevant.
Several lawsuits already dismissed
“When it comes to counting or not evaluating certain voices, I honestly see relatively little effect,” says Thomas Jäger. This type of complaint does not indicate an optimistic campaign – but is pure hacking, says Ben Ginsberg, longtime lawyer for the Republicans: “Admitting defeat is not a plausible reaction,” the expert told CNN. Law professor Franita Tolson agrees: “I believe most of this litigation is a desperate attempt and is unlikely to succeed.”
Trump’s legal team has already taken legal action in numerous locations. For example in Michigan, where observers had too little access, and in Georgia, where some letters that were too late were illegally counted, writes “BBC”. These lawsuits were dismissed on Thursday. Proceedings are pending against other states such as Nevada and Wisconsin.
