President Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election have encompassed a massive litigious landscape, and have attacked the issue from just about every possible angle.
The track record so far has been less than ideal for the Trump team, who have had no less than three dozen such attempts batted down by judges from Pennsylvania to Arizona and back again.
But their latest efforts in Michigan may just have a shot at making a splash yet.
A Michigan judge is allowing a forensic investigation of 22 Dominion vote tabulation machines in rural Antrim County amid claims that votes there were compromised.
Trump campaign attorneys celebrated the decision although the case is not related to the presidential contest.
“Our team is going to be able to go in this morning at about 8:30 and will be there for about eight hours to conduct that forensic examination and we’ll have the results in about 48 hours, and that’ll tell us a lot about these machines,” attorney Jenna Ellis said on “Fox & Friends” Sunday morning.
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani tweeted that it was a “BIG WIN FOR HONEST ELECTIONS.”
President Trump has repeatedly stated his belief that he actually won the 2020 election, but that widespread voter fraud occurred favoring Joe Biden.
This announcement has been one of the most prominent of the Trump legal team’s tenure thus far.
