President Trump and his legal team are convinced that they’ve won the 2020 election, and they are doing everything in their power to prove it to the American people.
First and foremost, there are the recounts being conducted in a number of states around the nation. In Georgia, a state that shocked the nation by turning blue in 2020, this recount will actually be done by hand, in order to provide the maximum amount of accuracy and efficacy.
The Trump team is also looking at ballots that they believe have been cast “improperly”, whether that be votes that missed a deadline, were incorrectly marked, or lacking necessary verifications.
Some of those ballots came from the military.
A list produced by the Trump campaign purporting to detail just over 3,000 instances of alleged voter fraud in Nevada contains hundreds of addresses used by active-duty military members and their families.
The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that the list of 3,062 alleged instances of people voting in Nevada while living elsewhere included hundreds of active-duty military members who apparently live in Nevada but are stationed elsewhere in the U.S. or overseas.
Active-duty members of the armed services frequently vote absentee while stationed away from home.
The Trump campaign’s legal challenges to the election results have had meager success thus far, and some in the White House are beginning to come to grips with the coming defeat.
