Government officials, journalists, and lawyers called for the resignation of District Attorney Josh Shapiro (D) of Pennsylvania after his controversial comments that Trump would not win the election in his state after all the ballots were counted, Breitbart reported.
If all the votes are added up in PA, Trump is going to lose. That’s why he’s working overtime to subtract as many votes as possible from this process.
For the record, he’s 0-6 against us in court. We’ve protected voting rights. Now, ignore the noise—vote!https://t.co/mN8t6TDud7

The prosecutor’s partisan comments drew criticism from his colleagues.
When President Trump established a clear lead in Pennsylvania, Gov. Wolf (D) suddenly found 3 million uncounted ballots. That’s the amount Biden needs to beat Trump, who leads by almost that much.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Heather Heidelbaugh (R) asked that Shapiro step aside from the voting process.
"The outcome of these elections in Pennsylvania must not be muddled with this glaring conflict of interest. Again, I urge Josh Shapiro to step aside and put an end to flagrant partiality inherent in his dual roles.” – @Heidelbaugh4AG

In another instance, the attorney general suggested that voters contact the Democrats for help with the election, publicly displaying once again partisanship that does not correspond to his role as prosecutor.
Need help with your mail in ballot, finding out where to vote, or something else?

“Do you need help with mail voting, where to vote, or anything else? Call the voter assistance line @PADems (Pennsylvania Democrats). Someone will answer and help you. Call 1-833-PA-VOTES”
Adriana Cohen, a journalist, wrote on her Twitter account in response to Gov. Wolf’s announcement that the total vote count would not be known yet.
That's interesting considering PA's Democrat AG Josh Shapiro said on Oct 31st days — before — the election, "If all the votes are added up in PA, @realDonaldTrump is going to lose.."

Benny from Turning Point USA, a conservative student organization, complained:
This bastard is going to try and steal Pennsylvania from Trump.
He literally states that he’s going to do this 👇🏽👇🏻👇🏾
How much more evidence do you need?
RT if you think Josh Shapiro should be NO WHERE NEAR PA ballots and should RESIGN for election interference https://t.co/cthXLOXC5Q

Brigitte Gabriel, a national security expert, tweeted:
Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro is doing everything in his power to steal this election from @realDonaldTrump!
Stay in line and VOTE!

Jordan Schachtel, an investigative journalist, said:
Even if Trump pulls off AZ or NV, he still needs PA.
Here's the problem: the corrupt AG of the state, Josh Shapiro signaled before any votes had been counted that Trump would not win the state.
I tend to believe him when he says he will not allow that to happen.

Not only in Pennsylvania—Democrats in Michigan and Wisconsin managed to suddenly “find” hundreds of thousands of ballots—all for Biden—which does not fit the logic of elections.
If the race in one place is very close, it is not normal for ballots to suddenly turn up for a single candidate.
