Georgia completes hand audit of ballots, confirms Biden's victory

U.S. President Donald Trump arrives for a campaign rally at Oakland County International Airport in Waterford Township

"That seems to be breaking down".

Talking about how Trump has still not acknowledged his defeat and is still trying to fight the system by filing lawsuits in various states, alleging the Democratic Party of voter fraud, Zeman said, "I personally believe that it would be much more reasonable to give up, not to be embarrassing, and allow the new president to take office". Days after that statement was issued, Trump fired the agency's leader.

"But I think Joe Biden is right to say that we should all make an effort to do our best to lower the temperature and listen to the other side", Obama said.

"When Donald Trump was declared, you know, the victor of our election, Barack Obama invited him to the White House, the transition began", Hillary Clinton said in a live-streamed conversation with the school's director, former Finnish Prime Minister Alexander Stubb.

The second argument that could prevail in today's federal courts relies on a version of the unitary executive theory beloved by many conservatives and accepted by many more judges now that Trump has appointed some 200 of them to the federal bench.

The president reportedly invited MI lawmakers to the White House for a meeting on Friday. "There has been a distinct lack of transparency throughout the process", they said. Numerous Republicans have promoted the president's baseless claims of voter fraud in several states and promoted his legal team's meritless lawsuits in court, many of which have failed.

At present, he trails President-Elect Joe Biden in the state by 157,000 votes. "With no transition, they are not getting access to government information, government personnel, in order to plan for the eventual rollout of a vaccine and it's going to cost lives, and it's meant to disrupt and obstruct Biden from assuming the responsibilities of the presidency".

On top of that, a Biden lawsuit would run up against federal judges' general disinclination to accuse a president of bad faith, which has produced a bevy of problems in the age of Trump.

Trump was behind "incredibly damaging messages being sent to the rest of the world about how democracy functions", Biden told reporters in his home state of Delaware. They later relented and the results were certified.

He said he wasn't concerned that it would affect his own legitimacy, although he did cite recent polls showing large percentages of Republicans believe the Trump camp's claims of electoral fraud. Biden won the state by roughly 155,000 votes (2.8%). The four-member state canvassing board is expected to meet Monday and also is split with two Democrats and two Republicans.

Trump appears intent on pushing the issue. Spokespersons for Chatfield and Shirkey have not responded to MLive's request for comment. Those two races are headed to a January runoff.

The Legislature would be called to select electors if Trump succeeds in convincing the state's board of canvassers not to certify Biden's 153,000-vote victory in the state. But both legislative leaders have indicated they will not try to overturn Biden's win.

The Democrat said he was not concerned that people may question the legitimacy of his administration.

'We haven't ruled it out, ' Biden said.

"The consequences of what's happening during this lame duck period, I think, are potentially more severe than the consequences associated with a late transition process", Romney told CNN's David Axelrod in a podcast interview released Thursday.

This would mean that Murphy's judgment and discretion are completely beside the point; Trump has determined that Biden is not the apparent victor (indeed - he has declared himself the apparent victor by tweet and in a news conference), and it simply follows that nobody in the executive branch can legally adopt a different position. But election officials across the country have said repeatedly there was no widespread fraud.
