Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes announced Friday, Nov. 6, that he would support President Trump’s legal team’s demands to address voter fraud cases in several states.

Reyes, who was re-elected to his post, reported on Twitter that he would take leave to “prepare and support litigation in several states.”

According to local media, Deseret News, the attorney general—who belongs to the Republican Party—is already in Nevada to challenge the irregularities denounced by the Republican campaign.

“Biden & his allies know that President Trump will win if only verified, #legal votes are counted.

We are making sure that happens but looks like courts may have to decide that,” Reyes wrote, adding that despite what polls predicted, Republicans maintained a majority in the Senate and expanded their seats in the House of Representatives.

Trump’s team filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania, Georgia—a state that will recount 5 million votes—Michigan, and Nevada, and announced that it would join an Arizona lawsuit.

Among irregularities reported are counting of mail ballots that arrived after Nov. 3, the unexplained appearance of 120,000 votes in favor of Biden—and none for the other candidates—and the exclusion of Republican observers from the site where the votes were counted.

“If you confirm that there are these weird reports coming out of the votes for one candidate only and not for the other, you have to ask yourself what exactly is going on?,” explained Hans Von Spakovsky, director of the Election Law Reform Initiative at the Heritage Foundation and a senior legal fellow at the Center for Legal and Judicial Studies in Meese.

He also commented on the eviction of Republican witnesses from the vote count rooms in Detroit, Michigan.

“The fact that in places like Detroit they are persecuting and not allowing legally appointed election observers to observe them processing these mail ballots raises serious questions about the possible misconduct that is occurring,” said von Spakovsky.

“That’s the kind of thing you don’t want to happen because that’s just illegal,” he added.

President Trump noted that there would be a long legal battle ahead in the context of all these irregularities.

“If you count the legal votes, I win easily,” the president said at a press conference Thursday night.

“If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us,” he added.

“We want openness and transparency—no secret count rooms, no mystery ballots, no illegal votes being cast after Election Day,” he added.

“We think we will win the election very easily,” he said, arguing that his team has “so much evidence, so much proof” of election fraud.

In the same vein, the Trump 2020 campaign’s general counsel, Matt Morgan, stressed that although the counts are not yet finished, U.S. President Donald Trump will be re-elected.

“This election is not over. The false projection of Joe Biden as the winner is based on results in four states that are far from final,” he said.
