Several television networks decided this morning to cancel a press conference at the White House after press secretary Kayleigh McEnany reiterated US President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claims about election fraud.
Trump and his campaign have made unfounded allegations of large-scale electoral fraud in Pennsylvania and other states that are voting for Democratic rival Joe Biden.
The US election was scheduled for Biden – and he won the day – but Trump has still not admitted defeat and instead reiterated his fraud claims.
What happened to today’s press conference?
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany held a press conference at the White House, suggesting that the Trump administration will not step down from the president’s demands.
“This election is far from over,” McEnany told reporters at a briefing in her capacity as Trump campaign advisor.
“Our position is clear. We want to protect the American people’s right to vote. We want an honest, accurate, and legitimate count. We want maximum sunlight. We want maximum transparency. We want every legal vote to be counted and we want every illegal one. ”Vote to be discarded. “
The US network Fox News and ABC News Australia canceled the briefing.
“I just think we have to be very clear: she accuses the other side of welcoming fraud and illegal voting,” said Neil Cavuto, host of Fox News.
Before cutting away, Lisa Millar said on ABC News, “If you have evidence, we’ll let you know. But not yet at this point. “
CNN didn’t appear to be broadcasting the briefing live.
When Trump’s team pushed for fraud, it asked for “patience”.
Later in the press conference, a reporter asked McEnany if Trump’s team knew that fraudulent votes were indeed being cast, or if they said they didn’t know because they couldn’t see the ballots while they were being counted.
“What we’re asking here is patience,” replied McEnany.
“We are aware of all reports of thousands of votes in Nevada cast by ineligible people. We hear these reports. We see them go in. We check it out. We get affidavits.
Lawsuits were flagged. Where are they?
The latest news in the legal challenge area is that Trump’s campaign has filed a lawsuit against Pennsylvania.
The lawsuit was filed in federal court and the alleged Pennsylvania mail-in voting system lacked control and verification of personal voting.
She seeks an injunction to prevent state officials from confirming Biden’s victory in the state.
The Republicans also sued the city of Philadelphia for being close to the election workers who process ballots.
A state judge ordered the city to allow observers within 1.8 meters of poll workers. The city appealed, citing occupational safety concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic and the potential for intimidation.
The Trump campaign and Republicans have filed numerous other lawsuits over electoral irregularities.
Judges have already thrown cases in Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin.
The Senate majority leader says Biden has not yet been elected
Top Republican in the US Congress, Mitch McConnell, said Trump has the right to bring charges of “irregularities”.
The Senate majority leader, who had just won re-election, said Monday that he supported the litigation regarding electoral fraud claims.
When asked whether he had seen evidence of election fraud, he said nothing.
McConnell spoke after four Senate Republicans, including a prominent Trump critic, congratulated Biden on his victory.
In a speech in the Senate, McConnell did not recognize Biden as elected president or his fellow campaigner, Senator Kamala Harris, as elected vice president.
