President Trump’s legal team filed a lawsuit on Tuesday, Nov. 17, to challenge the Nevada election results due to election irregularities and fraud, stating that President Trump won the state, the Washington Examiner reported.
The lawsuit’s argument is based primarily on evidence that at least 15,000 people voted twice, in Nevada and in another state, in addition to about 1,000 people who also voted in the state without residency.
“The discrepancies and irregularities in this election will eclipse the difference in the votes between the candidates,” states the lawsuit, filed on Tuesday in Nevada’s 1st District Court.
The former Nevada attorney general, who works as President Trump’s attorney in that state, said, “We are presenting today in our formal contest, that there are north of 15,000 people who voted in Nevada and another state. We are presenting that people that had already done a change of address and left the state outside of the 30-day requirement, their ballots were still cast. We are also presenting dead voters.”
The lawsuit also targets the Agilis system, the machines used to tabulate the votes, stating that they did not verify the signatures on the mail-in ballot envelopes with the signatures on the voter roll.
The irregularities in the state of Nevada were also discovered by the Voting Integrity Project, led by Matt Braynard who said that at least 5,145 voters in the state had their addresses changed.
Braynard’s team took the hardest route to verify if these voters voted illegally and set up a fundraising campaign to call every single person who presents this irregularity. To date, he has confirmed 987 dual voters in the state of Nevada. The complete results of his project will be published on Nov. 18.
The legal challenge to the Nevada results is in addition to those that Trump filed in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Arizona.
Voter irregularities and fraud have been so massive in this election that it is difficult to really know how many electoral votes President Trump won.
The president referred to this in his tweet where he announced the firing of a cyber security officer.
The recent statement by Chris Krebs on the security of the 2020 Election was highly inaccurate, in that there were massive improprieties and fraud – including dead people voting, Poll Watchers not allowed into polling locations, “glitches” in the voting machines which changed…
