With tempers flaring over mysterious overnight ‘ballot dumps’ and questionable pro-Biden rulings leading up to Tuesday’s election, President Trump’s campaign on Wednesday began assembling an all-star legal team to mount challenges in key states, beginning with a Court of Claims lawsuit in Michigan, according to Just the News‘ John Solomon.
The team will include Trump attorneys Jay Sekulow and Rudy Giuliani, along with former Florida AG Pam Bondi. Michael Flynn attorney Sidney Powell may also be called upon, according to officials.
“As votes in Michigan continue to be counted, the presidential race in the state remains extremely tight as we always knew it would be. President Trump’s campaign has not been provided with meaningful access to numerous counting locations to observe the opening of ballots and the counting process, as guaranteed by Michigan law,” said Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, after the legal team filed an action in the Court of Claims seeking to halt vote counting until irregularities are addressed.
“We have filed suit today in the Michigan Court of Claims to halt counting until meaningful access has been granted. We also demand to review those ballots which were opened and counted while we did not have meaningful access. President Trump is committed to ensuring that all legal votes are counted in Michigan and everywhere else.”
Giuliani, meanwhile, is heading to Pennsylvania to get eyes on the counting situation.
